What is an enterprise Remix developer?

Remix.run is a React-based JS framework built by the team behind React Router, Ryan Florence and Michael Jackson. It was launched in April 2020, initially as a paid framework, but went open source in November 2021. Since then its popularity has boomed.

Remix (or RemixJS) differs from other React frameworks (such as NextJS) in that it only supports server-side rendering (SSR). This makes it a great framework for sites with high numbers of pages with dynamic data, such as ecommerce. It is less ideal for static sites or sites with a mix of static and dynamic content. Its suitability for ecommerce was probably a factor in the framework being bought by Shopify in October 2022.

RemixJS is built to “build better websites.” For the Remix team, this means emphasizing user experience and performance. It does this through:

  • Progressive enhancement. The code for the site is usable without JavaScript and with bad networks. The data and JS “enhance” the site once it’s available.
  • Nested routes. Each page is composed of individual nested routes segmented according to the URL. So each area of the site can be loaded synchronously for faster loading.
  • Better error handling. Nested routes also allow for graceful failure where only a part of a page can error and the rest of the page remains functional.

RemixJS also builds upon well-defined web standards such as the Fetch API to increase compatibility and decrease complexity.

How to hire Remix developers FAQ

Remix hiring guide

If you’re hiring a Remix developer to build or work on a Remix site, they need to understand JavaScript and React fully with good additional knowledge of React Hooks, the Fetch API, and TypeScript. Beyond technical skills, they need to be the kind of developer who loves thinking about the end-user experience of a website and delivering the best performance possible for users.

At each level of seniority, different knowledge, skills, and outcomes will be expected:

  • An entry-level Remix developer is someone who might be new to Remix but has some JS and React experience. They will need guidance and support to complete tasks and projects. They should learn and improve their skills over time. They may not be able to complete complex tasks independently but should be able to work on individual functions, pages, and components as part of the larger site.
  • An intermediate Remix developer should have some experience in Remix (or at least other React-based frameworks) and can complete tasks and ship projects with minimal guidance. They should be able to take ownership of whole sections of a site or whole components or functionality. An intermediate developer should be able to troubleshoot and solve technical problems and a company should see a team leader who is capable of delivering projects. 
  • A senior Remix developer has a high level of expertise in Remix, having developed production-level sites in the framework before. They can lead teams and projects in building a Remix site. A senior developer should be able to design and implement complex solutions and contribute to the overall strategy and direction of the team and the company.

A Remix shopify developer should also be familiar with the platform languages such as Ruby, Rails, React Native and Rust.

Remix interview questions

Question 1: How does data loading work in Remix?

You can get an understanding of whether the developer knows the different way Remix handles loading data (using their LoaderFunction and useLoaderData hook) compared with other React frameworks. A great answer to this, loading data from the GitHub API, might look like this:

This answer is ideal as it uses TypeScript. A good answer would also be to use JavaScript, and then the conversation can be about why the TS version would be better.

Question 2: Say you were building a webpage analytics dashboard using Remix. What might the routes structure look like?

This is a good question to get whether the developer understands how Remix applications work with nested routes and how the different components of a page interact. Here’s a nested routes structure for such an application:

You would render each child within its parent using Outlet:

So a good answer would miss this snippet, but a great answer would include it. If it’s missing, the interviewer could lead the developer on to a conversation about rendering the routes and Outlet.

Question 3: Add an error boundary to one of the routes above. How does a user get that error?

This is a good question for seeing whether the developer has thought through their route structure as well as if they understand how errors are handled in Remix. 

A great answer will include the reasoning that got to the error: “OK, so a user has opened up their dashboard and a graph component and a list component are going to try and load. Within the graph, there is a bar chart and a line chart. Let’s say the call to the $lineGraphId fails. We need to add this to that file:”

An OK answer should still include the code. Follow-on questions might be to step up the structure and talk about how errors are handled for the entire dashboard.

Question 4: What is Progressive Enhancement?

Progressive enhancement is a fundamental idea in Remix where the core components of the page should render whether JavaScript is working or not and whether data can be fetched or not. The page works, and ‘progressively enhances’ as data is loaded.

Given its central role in how Remix apps work, a developer should be able to describe the concept and why it’s important. A great answer would be:

“Progressive enhancement emphasizes user experience and content over pure aesthetics. You want to create a basic, functional web page that works on any device, no matter the network, and then enhance it with additional features and data progressively as allowed by the network and browser. This approach ensures that everyone, regardless of their network or device, can access the basic content and functionality of a web page.”

A good answer might only lock into the idea of “spinnerless” design, where the web page has no loss of interactivity during page load. Asking the developer to go deeper into the accessibility idea behind progressive enhancement can help them learn the richer context.

Question 5: Why does Remix use the Fetch API?

This is going to be a two-fold answer, with a great answer getting both details.

  1. It fetches asynchronously. The request is sent to the server and then continues to process other tasks, such as handling user input or rendering the page, which is critical for Remix as its USP is performance. When the server responds to the request, the Fetch API will automatically trigger an event or call a callback function that you have specified in your code, allowing you to handle the response in a non-blocking manner.
  2. It is the default in modern web browsers. You can use the Fetch API without having to include any external libraries or frameworks in your code. E.g. Remix doesn’t require Node or Express to work as most JS frameworks do. Instead, it uses web standards. This means you can deploy it to the edge.

What is the two-week guarantee for Torc Remix developers?

The best way to evaluate whether a developer is a great match is by working with them. That's why we make it as easy as possible to get started. If a developer isn't working out within the first two weeks of your engagement, we'll work with you to find a better match and won't bill you for the original developer. It's a no-risk way for you to get the help you need even faster.

How does Torc ensure high-quality Remix candidates?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

How much do Torc Remix developers cost?

Developers in the Torc community set their own rates. The three primary factors that determine the cost of a Remix developer are:

  1. Experience - Everyone would prefer a senior developer but, let's be honest, 10+ years of experience isn't always required. If you consider the work the developer will be doing and the amount of support within your existing team they'll have access to, you might be better served with one or two junior Remix developers over one senior developer.
  2. Skill mix - Marketplaces operate under normal supply and demand dynamics. Developer rates often increase with more niche, complex, or in-demand skill requirements.
  3. Geography - While remote work has flattened the geographic pay disparity to some degree, where your developer lives does factor into their cost. In 2022, the median rate for Torc developers in Latin America was 29% lower than developers in the U.S., Canada, and Western Europe, while the median rates in Eastern Europe and Asia/Oceania were 24% and 40% lower, respectively.
