5 Things You Should Know Before Hiring an App DeveloperIn a world where every restaurant, museum, newsroom or any other business you can think of needs an app, developers are a sought-after commodity. In fact, this reality can hardly be overstated. Just think of how many brand new business models are based entirely on apps, like ridesharing and food delivery services. Each of these as well as any new emerging businesses all need app developers. As a premiere technical recruitment agency, Parallel HR has helped numerous companies find app developers who help their teams thrive.

 Many people hire app developers with a sense of urgency because of the reasons listed above. That can put your company in a difficult position. Our experienced recruitment agency can help you find, vet and hire candidates. Here are some of the most important things you should know when hiring an app developer.

  1. You Should Double Check Experience Levels

When you are in a hurry to hire someone, you will be quick to compromise. If you’re not careful, this can lead to situations where you are working with people who aren’t quite qualified. When you work with Parallel HR, you can be confident in our vetting process.

  1. You should be cautious about working with freelancers

Freelancers can be great, but they can also be a little inconsistent. When someone is working remotely, it’s just more challenging to maintain communication and workflow. Often, you need their services so often that you are better off hiring a full-time developer.

  1. They can be difficult to keep due to competing offers

Often employers will be disappointed to discover that an app development candidate has chosen another offer during negotiations. Fortunately, Parallel HR has experience with conducting negotiations, and we can save you time by representing you through this process. We take factors such as the perks of the job opportunity other than salary.

  1. The smartphone the app developer uses

While a talented developer can develop apps for any smartphone, it is always helpful to have the level of familiarity with a smartphone that comes with daily use. If someone claims to have high familiarity with Android, double check to see if they have an Android smartphone.

  1. Apps they have developed should be documented

You can get a great sense of an app developer’s level of talent by looking at the apps they have developed in the past. If they cannot produce any previously developed apps, you have learned something very important about that particular candidate.
