  As your company grows, your business needs grow. Thus, you need to hire more people to execute and manage different tasks. As any business owner knows, hiring the right candidate can be challenging. We’ve extensively covered hiring marketing experts do’s and don’ts here (and offered solutions for that, too). But when it comes to tech professionals such as developers, programmers, software engineers, and the likes of them, things can get more tricky.


  While Stllr Network does not currently offer tech professionals (yet!), we’ve compiled a list of the top six freelancing platforms to hire developers for your business, three regional and three international.


  Let’s start with the three regional ones.
