The mobile centric functioning of the society in today’s times has been successfully able to create a conspicuous difference on the tech landscape in the last few years. Business houses realize that if they want to sustain themselves from stiff competition, they need to present themselves in a way that is relevant to today and ready for tomorrow. And having an Android app is the best way by which they can establish themselves on a global platform.

The ubiquitous Android mobile app enjoys a dominating global presence. These Android mobile applications are designed so articulately that they can easily address and align communication and user experience among the target users. Hence, enterprises and businesses have come to recognize that in this mobile-first world, Android apps will help them to generate revenues, increase customer loyalty, and also help them to stay relevant in 2017 and beyond. Hence, companies are keen to find mobile app developers who are specialized in making Android apps.

What non-technical skills to look out for?

But while hiring an Android developer, very often, a company doesn’t give priority to checking his or her non-technical skills. Since they think that their job is technical, non-technical skills feature very low on their priorities. However, we would say that a good Android developer should equally be competent in both, technical and non-technical skills.

Today we look at the key non-technical skills that an employer should check while they are in the process of deploying an Android developer to align to their project.

  • Communication skills
A developer should possess a good verbal and written communication skills irrespective of how good he or she is in programming or other technical skills. An Android developer should be well communicative with his team members and the clients regarding the challenges and opportunities of various projects. While hiring an Android developer, you should check whether he can express his ideas, opinion, thought process and vision in right words or not. And if you find any difficulty regarding this, then you should switch to another developer immediately.

  • Collaboration
An Android developer will always act as team player whose prime job is to synergise the whole work in a collaborative environment. Therefore, an Android developer must be cooperative and well-coordinated with other developers and designers. A team player always motivates the other team members to perform at the benchmark levels. An organization will grow exponentially if all employees are congenial with each other and work coherently.

  • Passion
Passion is the prime differentiator between just another app developer and an outstanding app developer. If an app developer is zealous about his work, then that zeal will motivate him to go extra mile for customer satisfaction. An ardent individual will definitely take ownership of the work and always ready to give his best at any level of work.

  • Work Prioritization
Basically, Android application development process is done in phases. Sometimes an issue that has arisen needs to be fixed as early as possible so that the work can progress smoothly while on the other hand, some issues can wait. It would be a prudent decision for you if you hire such an Android developer who knows how to make this work prioritization so that your project can progress smoothly as intended.

  • Customer focus
Though this is not a mandatory skill for an Android developer but it applies to everyone especially who are associated in the field of customer service. When you are trying to find mobile app developers, you should go for such developers who are customer centric and are preferred to put their work first before everything else. You should incorporate those developers into your team, who have complete faith in your project and share the same vision and mission as you.

  • Business knowledge
An Android app developer must have profound business knowledge of the industry for which the app is developed. This is the vital thing if you want to make a successful app. If your developer is unable to understand your target audience, market and your business thoroughly, then there will be high chances of failure of that particular app.

Suppose, you want to develop an app for the hospitality industry and your developer has inadequate knowledge about the industry, then probably he would not be able to cater to the needs of mobile app users. You can sort out this deficiency through a detailed interview or if required, you may take a series of interviews to understand the business perspective views of your developer.

While concluding I would like to say that for the best result, it is advisable that you should go for experienced Android app developers who possess a good synergy of technical and non-technical skills. This is important as technical skills usually depict the technical knowledge of the developer while the non-technical skills actually give the assurance that the project is completed on time without any issues.
