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

Swift continues to be one of the most in-demand programming languages today. It is used to create iOS, MacOS, LinuxOS, and tvOS applications, making it extremely popular as companies keep targeting Apple device users for maximum digital presence.

Given the language's demand, it's becoming increasingly difficult to hire high-quality Swift developers. Besides the limited talent pool, countless companies compete to hire expert Swift developers to deploy cutting-edge applications for rapid business success. This, in turn, has made it quite time-consuming and costly to hire Swift developers.

However, Turing helps to simplify the hiring process. Our AI-powered talent cloud leverages global reach to provide skilled Swift developers in 4 days. We use deep vetting to ensure that our selected developers have ample expertise in Swift programming, Xcode, app design, UI/UX, and other key areas, along with strong communication skills.

Moreover, if you're a non-technical hiring manager interested in knowing the process of hiring a Swift developer, we've put up an excellent resource for you.

What are the skills to look for while hiring a Swift developer?

At a high level, Swift developers should have the following skills in his/her arsenal:

1. Expertise in Swift 3.0 and above

Developed by Apple, Swift is the global and most favored language for iOS mobile app development. So, your candidate should be proficient in Swift 3.0 and above, having expertise in core functionalities like Syntax, Objective-C Interoperability, Inheritance, Classes, & Initialization, and Switch Statements. Look for developers who know Swift well because their proficiency can help in various key aspects, from wireframing your app's screens and software planning to UI design and submission to the Apple App Store.

2. High proficiency in Apple’s Xcode IDE

Xcode IDE produces one-of-a-kind software and is the first environment to develop programs for multiple Apple devices such as Apple, iPad, TV, iPhone, Mac, etc. It is paired with Cocoa Touch frameworks and lets developers enable a variety of Apple services, such as Passbook and Game Changer. Hence, when hiring Swift developers, ensure that they're well-versed in using Xcode and its features, such as debugging, code editing, and profiling.

3. Solid understanding of design patterns and app architecture

An expert Swift developer must be familiar with various design principles and software architectural patterns commonly used in iOS development. They should know how to separate concerns and structure code using patterns such as Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM), Clean Architecture, or Model-View-Controller (MVC). When hiring Swift developers, check if they are adept at these concepts and have experience with design patterns like observer, singleton, and delegation.

4. Familiarity with memory management

Most expert Swift developers know that Swift uses ARC (automatic reference counting) for memory management. Such developers must be proficient in this concept and be able to manage memory effectively. This helps to avoid memory leaks in an application and optimize its performance, which is why you must make sure your chosen candidate is familiar with memory management.

5. UI/UX design experience

The use of effective UI/UX design in the development of a mobile app can drastically alter its appearance, resulting in increased user engagement. As a result, your Swift developer should have a good understanding of design concepts and be able to produce engaging UI/UX designs for a mobile app they design and construct.

6. Proficiency in testing and debugging

When you hire remote Swift developers, you must also assess their debugging and testing experience, as this ensures that your app offers the desired user experience. Skilled Swift developers have strong debugging skills to detect and resolve issues promptly. They must be familiar with Xcode's debugging techniques and tools for troubleshooting and fixing bugs. Plus, an expert Swift developer is also adept at writing unit tests, UI tests, and other relevant automated tests to ensure code maintainability and quality.

Top interview questions to hire Swift developers.

Whether you're an IT recruiter or a project manager, you know that finding top developers is critical to the success of your project. Here are some sample interview questions to use when looking for a new Swift developer to work on your online applications.

The upcast, going from a derived class to a base class, can be checked at compile time and will never fail. However, downcasts can fail since you can’t always be sure about the specific class.

As the name suggests, @autoclosure automatically creates a closure from the arguments passed to the function. You can delay the actual request of an argument by changing the argument to a closure.

The main difference is that NSArray is for an ordered collection and NSSet is for an unordered collection. But when you ask this question, you want to know how much your candidate knows about the set and array function in general. A good candidate will add a few examples to his/her answer on how both NSArray and NSSet perform in different scenarios.
