Hire Android Developers with Upstack
There are a number of considerations when hiring an Android developer. These professionals need to have a solid knowledge of Android OS, Java programming language, and XML. They will also be given several challenges as they code, test, and debug apps. Here is how you can hire the best possible Android developers...
Assessing soft skills in an Android Developer
- Assessing a candidate’s soft skills will tell you how well they will fit into your team and organization. It will also help you determine if the individual is a good fit for the job.
- Communication skills - Great communication are essential. This will allow your team to collaborate easily with one another. It will also help the candidates to interact with their team members and get the help they need. This can be assessed by having a phone or video discussion with the candidate.
- Analytical skills - Analytical skills are essential for developers since coding is a process that requires problem solving. You can assess this by asking them to solve a coding challenge or by providing a problem statement.
- Motivation and drive - A candidate should be motivated and driven to succeed, as well as have a good work ethic. You can assess this by asking the candidate how they plan to succeed.
- Problem-solving skills - These are essential in any type of job, especially in the tech sector. You can assess this by providing a problem statement and asking the candidate how they would solve it.
Assessing technical skills in an Android Programmer
Technical skills are what the engineer is expected to have to do the job. They are not something that can be taught, but something that the programmer must have. Hiring an Android developer without the correct technical skills will be a waste of time and money since you will need to keep looking for candidates.
- Android operating system - An Android developer must have a good understanding of the Android operating system. This is one of the essential skills that a candidate must have.
- Java programming language - This is one of the programming languages that you can use to code Android apps. It is essential that a developer understands this language since it will allow them to code Android apps. Flutter is also an important programming language devs should understand.
- XML - This is another essential skill that a developer must have. This coding language allows developers to create apps with ease.
Hire only after assessing both – soft skills and technical skills.
After you have assessed both the soft skills and technical skills of a candidate, you can hire the one that is best suited for the job. You must also take into account the salary range for the positions as well as the cost of living in the area where you will hire from.
- Interview - Once you have shortlisted the candidates with an UpStack support person, conduct interviews to select the best one. Make sure that you give the candidates challenging tasks that are related to their job.
- Test - After you have selected the best candidate, you can test their technical skills by giving them coding challenges. This will give you an idea of how well they will perform in the job.
Developer testing during hiring process
Once you have shortlisted candidates, you can test them to see how well they perform in the job. This will help you select the best android programmer for the job.
- Mock-ups - Ask one of your team members to create mock-ups of apps that the candidate will build. You can also create them yourself if you know how to code. This will give the developer a sample of what the job is like.
- Pre-work - Give the android developer pre-work before the actual project so that they can see what the job is like. You can also use this as an evaluation tool to see how well they perform in the job. This can also be used if you want to hire remotely.
