Android has taken over the world of digital solutions and the majority of the users global market use Android phones over its alternatives. Due to this, Android developers are always in high demand.

Skills to look for when you hire senior Android developers?

To hire the best senior Android engineers, you must evaluate the following skills

1. Experience in working with Java and Android Studio

Java is the primary programming language used for developing Android applications. Moreover, many existing Android applications are built using Java. A Senior Android developer will be responsible for maintaining and updating these apps, which requires expertise in Java.

On the other hand, Android Studio is the official Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Android app development. Java, when paired with Android Studio can help in streamlining the development processes. So, whenever you need to hire senior Android developers, take time to test their expertise in these two skills.

2. Detailed knowledge of APIs

Another skill you should look into when planning to hire senior Android developers is familiarity with APIs. As modern digital solutions look to incorporate a variety of different third-party features, APIs have become increasingly popular. The ability to quickly integrate features using XML/SOAP or JSON/REST has made development cycles simpler. For this, it has become increasingly important to hire the best Android engineers who can bring in technical knowledge of utilizing such technologies.

3. Thorough understanding of XML

Android is a platform built to enhance online services and make them easily accessible. Technologies like Extensible Markup language or XML are widely used by developers to enable data services, for configuring functionalities and creating layout files. This is why it is important to hire senior Android developers who have thorough experience of working with similar technologies. Ideally, you should try to hire the best senior Android engineers with at least 3-4 years of professional experience in the industry and an existing portfolio of developed android applications.

4. Well-versed with Kotlin

Google has announced Kotlin as their official language for Android app development. This means that new Android features, libraries, and tools are often introduced with Kotlin in mind. As a Senior Android developer, being proficient in Kotlin allows you to take full advantage of these new developments and ensure your apps stay up-to-date with the latest advancements.

Moreover, Kotlin is more concise and expressive than Java and offers powerful features like data classes, extension functions, smart casts, and more. It enables developers to write cleaner, more readable code, reducing the development time. So, evaluating the candidates' skills in Koklin is a must when you will hire senior Android developers.

5. Knowledge of front-end technologies

The success of modern mobile applications depends a lot on the people you hire senior Android developers. While efficiency, speed, and usability are important to gain popularity, front-end solutions hold equal importance. The ability to build easy-to-use user interfaces that offer a smooth, engaging, and immersive user experience can define a developer’s abilities.

You should take your time to test applicants with questions or even technical tests when you hire senior Android coders. Try to onboard people well-versed in the best practice of modern front-end development models.

6. Solid understanding of databases

Today, most enterprise-level applications are built to process massive amounts of data. But working with massive amounts of data requires a thorough understanding of database technologies. Such services enable developers to configure features into applications that allow the collection, storage, management, and retrieval of data autonomously whenever required.

To ensure your team is equipped with all-around Android development prerequisites, try to hire senior Android programmers with proven professional experience in working with databases such are MySQL, MongoDB, and PostgreSQL among others.

Top interview questions to hire senior Android developers.

Creating a hiring funnel will provide you with numerous benefits, like assisting you in identifying the top skills and identifying a senior Android developer who will fit into your company's culture.

As coding is a multi-layer process, various layers in the Android stack are referred to by Android architecture. Any senior developer must know the whole Android environment of coding and testing applications. Every layer in the Android architecture provides different services to the layer just above it. And developers make sure that every layer gels with each other perfectly.

Though this is a fundamental question, it is quite essential from the user’s side. So when you ask about Activity, you want to know how much the developer understands the user interface and what innovations they can bring from their side. The candidate may respond to this question in the following manner: Activity is a single screen that represents GUI (Graphical User Interface). With 'Activity', users can interact in order to do something like dial the phone, view email, and more. A senior developer may also add his/her previous work and explain what they have done previously.

The Google Android SDK (Software Development Kit) is a toolset used by developers to write applications on Android-enabled devices. The tools present in Android SDK are as follows: Android Emulator, DDMS(Dalvik Debug Monitoring Services), ADB(Android Debug Bridge), and AAPT(Android Asset Packaging Tool). A senior developer mostly knows about all the tools and uses each whenever needed. So you can also ask about the functions of some of the SDKs along with examples.
