How To Hire Mobile App Developer Without Facing Any Difficulty?

Published on 09 March 17
Mobile applications have become a lifeline for every smartphone out there in the market. A smartphone without application is like a car without an engine. That is why companies are looking for mobile app developers who can complete their project requirements in very efficient manner.

But most of the times, companies are unsure about certain things like:

  • When and where to start hiring procedure?
  • What criteria should be set to hire app developers?

Companies can find a lot of app developers online. For example, famous websites like LinkedIn. But company first need to set expectations, like what kind of application developers are they actually looking for. It might be a waste of time and efforts if the company fails to find the right candidate for its project. So, below are some tips that will help mobile app development companies to hire suitable app developers without facing any difficulty.

Create A Perfect Job Description
An accurate job description will help the company to hire a perfect application developer. Posting an ad like Hiring: Mobile App Developers will get a bunch of developers but there might be a chance that none of them is as per the expectations. The company needs to list down different job description aspects before beginning the hiring process. These aspects include-

Duration Of Developer
Different companies have different project requirements. Depending on the project size (long-term, short-term), a company should decide for how long does it need a developer? So before hiring developers, the company should specify the type of developer’s profile like whether it's full-time or part-time?

Technical Knowledge
Android and iOS applications are creating a buzz in the mobile market. A large number of companies are looking for intelligent developers who can develop a robust mobile application based on these two famous platforms.

If a company is looking for iOS and Android app developers, then they (developers) should know Java and Objective-C programming languages and various other skills, for example, CSS3, HTML, Xamarin, Ionic and more.

Experienced Or Fresher
The company hires new app developers based on the type of the project. For highly advanced project, the company needs experienced developers and for simpler one company can hire a fresher candidate.

The company should decide whether to hire experienced or a fresher. If a company is familiar with the difficulty of the project, it can hire developers with enough experience level.

Specific Traits Of Developers
Some developers have a tendency to work on their own, while other like to work in the team. If a developer has only worked in a team before, but the company is not hiring an entire team, then this can cause a problem. Even though it is a minor aspect, company should include it in the job description.

Conduct Interview Like A Professional
The company can ask the potential developer about his/her experience with the previous organization. The interviewer should not hesitate to ask about previously done projects and applications. The company should ask the developer about his/her role and responsibility in app development process. Knowing the candidate’s exposure will help to determine the usability for the project.

There might be a chance that technical skills mentioned by developers can be fake. Hence, the company should ask different technical questions to the candidates. There are many developers who steal the code from different websites. Asking specific coding questions like basic coding syntax will help the company to know true skills of developers.

Conduct Test For Candidates
Conducting test is a good method to hire valid candidates for the company. It will help them to know the expertise of candidate in different areas. Along with technical knowledge, the company can determine the candidate’s knowledge in logical reasoning, quantitative aptitude, general awareness etc.

However, a test can help the company to prevent unqualified candidates who are sneaking through the hiring process. Because app developer is a profitable profession and company can encounter n number of cheating applicants every time. The company can conduct paper-based or online tests for their potential application developers.

Check Candidate’s References
No hiring process is complete without this important step. Checking the references help to reveal more details about the candidates. The company can actually call the candidate’s ex-client and ask about his/her performance. A positive feedback can help the company to determine the reliability and trustworthiness of the candidate.

Offer Reasonable Pay-Scale
The wages of application developers varies greatly. Because some developers work on an hourly basis while other works on contract basis. The company should offer reasonable salary depending on the project and skill level of the application developers. The developers who work full-time or on contract are either paid monthly or weekly.

To hire mobile app developer for the company can be a challenging task. The above tips can be helpful to find the right application developers for the project. Because talented professionals always care about each and every aspect involved in development process. As the result, they will create effective and robust mobile applications.
