How to hire a mobile developer? Skills to look for, interview questions, and more

Without any doubt, mobile development has become one of the most important topics in the IT industry as the demand for talented developers is increasing rapidly. From the server and cloud to the latest trend of IoT-enabled devices, there is so much value that a mobile developer provides. Building applications requires a deep understanding of programming and design. Mobile devices have smaller screens, simpler processors, and different manufacturers, so developers must keep code flexible and account for various user interface scenarios.

Regardless of the industry and domain, companies across the globe are looking for mobile developers who are well-versed in every layer of development. Hence, there are various programming tools, technologies, and skills you need to look out for while hiring a proficient mobile developer. To ease the process, we have put together an excellent resource to aid in sourcing ideal mobile app developers with great expertise that checks all requirements.

Skills to look for in a mobile app developer

At a high level, mobile app developers should have the following skills in their arsenal:

1. Mobile user interface design

A critical aspect of mobile development is building a high-quality user interface (UI). The UI of an application is responsible for the interactions between the user and the software. When it comes to developing mobile applications, it’s not sufficient to simply have adequate back-end functionality. With numerous applications available to download, the most attractive and scalable are the apps that are easy to use, have a superior design and run smoothly. Some of the primary elements of UI designing you need to look out for in a candidate’s skill while hiring include the ability to place app components effectively, good use of a unified color scheme, fast loading time, activity indicators, etc.

2. Cross-platform app development

For any mobile developer, it is essential to be familiar with multiple operating platforms in the current industry. When it comes to market penetration, there are three major mobile platforms i.e. Android, iOS, and Windows. A skilled application developer is not only experienced and able to code in one platform but versatile enough to design and develop apps across multiple platforms. Key aspects to consider with mobile developers who are well-versed in cross-platform app development are re-usability of codes, simple testing, service support, etc.

3. Sound understanding of XML

Extensible Markup Language (XML) is used as a standard way to encode data for internet-based mobile applications. It is a structured markup language, sharing many features in common with HTML, and allows information to be passed between devices in a way that can be understood consistently. In mobile development, developers use XML to create layouts that serve as the foundational UI definition for applications.

Developers are able to write code that modifies layout elements once the application is running, just the way web developers can use JavaScript to modify elements in the website at runtime. But mastering the basics of XML is an important skill for mobile developers and a very critical one to consider while hiring.

4. Proficiency with Git - version control system

As the world moves faster than ever into the mobile ecosystem, mobile app developers are faced with the need to experiment using new application features and coding techniques with confidence and that’s where the Git version control system comes in. By utilizing the free and open-source, version control software, mobile app developers now have the capability to work on exciting new techniques for their projects while keeping the previous working copy stable and secure. Hiring mobile developers with expert Git skills in their development arsenal can offer several benefits and value to the business.

5. Profound skills in Agile development

A key element of an experienced mobile developer’s skill is Agile development. It is important to shortlist candidates who are familiar with Agile and Lean methodologies to easily break down huge projects into small assignments, prioritize, and deliver maximum value to the organization. Some crucial aspects of Agile development to consider include great transparency, a focus on collaboration, continuous adaptation, fast delivery time, and more.

6. Solid expertise in the business capability

Business capability and expertise are also equally important while considering professional mobile developers for hire. It is possible to easily overlook this detail, but business skills tend to play a critical role in the field. For an app to stand out amongst the market competition, it is not only achieved by the app’s highly praised user experience, but it needs to be marketable.

While considering potential candidates, it is essential to shortlist developers who are skilled in optimizing an application’s visibility among the list of available applications of the same category or industry. Like all other components, the business, and marketing side of app development should be taken seriously.

Top interview questions to hire mobile developers

Recruiters associated with the tech industry are aware of the importance of sourcing exceptional talent. To get an overview of the candidate’s practical architectural skills and gauge the level of proficiency, here is a list of possible questions to ask while conducting an interview

In particular, be on the lookout for mobile developers demonstrating a complete understanding of the concept. To be clear, native mobile apps are apps that need to be installed via the Play Store or Apple store, while responsive web designs are websites that can be accessed through the browser and adapt the look and feel of the device used to access it (e.g. mobile phones will display information differently than desktops).

Also, one needs to understand that native mobile apps have much richer functionality than websites. This is because native mobile apps are able to access the native functions of the device on which they are running. Functions such as built-in notifications, access to the camera, storage, access to information such as contacts, etc. For security reasons, a browser is sandboxed (or limited in terms of functional access).

Push notifications are an extremely powerful tool but are sometimes misused. Most times the incessant stream of notifications causes people to uninstall mobile apps or disable such notifications, thus, losing all their effectiveness. Notifications are powerful because they help you communicate directly with users and deliver timely messages that can prompt actions or engagement. This question can help you understand the candidate’s working mechanism as it relates to the subject and if they are fully aware of the implications of using notifications, their usefulness, when and how often to send them.

As a developer working on a mobile app, one needs to understand both the advantages and disadvantages of the different platforms. The candidate needs to demonstrate a solid understanding of the strong and weak points of both platforms and the nuances of each. You can categorize and consider the benefits by ensuring they provide detailed examples along with the answer.

Security is a critical aspect and always needs to be given due consideration. With a question like this, you can understand whether the developer comprehends the security implications of an app. Features like storing personal information, handling payments, security breach or vulnerability issues, complying with local and national laws, etc. are always essential to put into consideration when hiring professional mobile developers.

Application Not Responding (ANR) appears as a dialogue box when the app has been unresponsive for over 10 seconds, usually because the main thread is blocked. This question checks whether the developer is aware of the golden rule of threading to never perform lengthy or intensive operations on the main thread. To avoid ANR, the number of activities performed by the core UI thread should be reduced. It’s a standard practice to create separate threads for resource-draining tasks such as database connections or complex computation operations.
