Before hiring, you should know what programming languages are used to create mobile applications. This will give you an idea of what to ask the person you are trying to hire and to know if he/she can create an application.

    2. Know your Platform

Learn about platforms and what your target platforms are to make an app. You can’t just hire an app developer without a platform so list down your projects to save time and money.

    3. Experience and Background

Check the background of the person you are hiring. Hire someone who knows their stuff, the person doesn’t need to be a top expert as long as he/she can provide a portfolio of past works so that you can see the quality and its function. You can also ask for samples of their code.

    4. The Concept of Product Design

An android app developer should have a good sense of product design. Look for someone who’s level is where you can assist and does not depend on the product manager. A developer who has experience in this can create apps that function professionally and are simple to use.

    5. Build a  Good Employee-Employer Relationship

Working with someone with a good relationship where you can freely talk like friends or such is not only good for your business but also for the comfort of both parties. Working with someone you don’t like or with someone you don’t get along well with will just get in the way of work.
