It actually depends on the terms of hiring. In the U.S., a "work for
hire" contract means you own all rights to the results of the work, so
assigning rights to someone else would come from you.

Other arrangements are possible, and you can specify in the terms who
owns what rights, assuming your programmer agrees.
