How to Interview and Hire Swift Developers
Swift is an open source programming language that was developed by Apple for use on its iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and its tvOS. It was first released back in 2014 and was designed to reduce the amount of programming errors as well as incorporating a number of features including “protocol-oriented programming”.
Thanks to it being supported by Apple for iOS app development, The Swift language has become a language that many developers have experience coding in. Apple has helped Swift app development by publishing transparent and comprehensive guidelines that software must adhere to in order to be released to the Apple app store.
Since there are millions of developers who code full time using Swift, you won’t find it very difficult to find one. The real challenge is to find the one that is great for your project.
You have a number of different hiring models, the general purpose freelancer site, software development specific freelancer sites, and dedicated software development companies.
Before we examine the strengths and weaknesses of each of these platforms, let’s start by outlining the main skills that you will need from your Swift developer.
1. Swift development skills
You will need to look for the following Swift skills:
- A good grasp of Swift syntax
- Control Flow
- Classes, inheritance & initialization
- Objective-C Interoperability
- Error handling
- (GCD) Grand Central Dispatch
2. Other skills that a Swift application developer needs
All Swift developers need several more core skills which are as follows:
A. Apple Design Guidelines
A comprehensive knowledge of Apple development guidelines is essential if you want to ensure that you can publish your finished software product. Apple’s website has all the necessary documentation, your developer must know it back to front.
Any software applications that are found in violation of the rules will be rejected immediately. Since Apple has created these guidelines to ensure apps run quickly and properly, as well as reducing the chances of security issues or Swift code errors, you need to make sure your developer is working within them.
B. The knowledge of Swift iOS and Android development
Native apps built for the iOS operating system utilize device-specific features of the iPhone, iPad, and iWatch mobile devices. You need to find a programmer who is able to get the best performance out of your mobile application. This will mean that they will have experience in using such things as plugins in order to efficiently add additional features and functionalities to the app.
Any experienced iOS developer will know the development process back to front and will also know the pitfalls and how to avoid them. This will help them maximize the user experience that will ultimately lead to top notch customer retention.
C. Familiarity with cloud platforms
Cloud platforms are one of the most powerful tools in the developer’s arsenal. “Platform-as-a-Service” (PaaS) or “Mobile-Backend-as-a-Service” (MBaaS) platforms can save lots of time and money as they handle the infrastructure so you only need to focus on the development. These platforms also allow software owners to scale their products easily and cost effectively.
You will likely want Swift programmers that have worked on cloud platforms like AWS, Azure, etc., as these are the most popular solutions out there.
E. The knowledge of application security
No matter whether you are building a cross-platform app or a native app, security is one of the most important parts of your product. You will need coders who have a good level of experience in application security.
Only hire Swift developers that understand how to quickly identify application security vulnerabilities and fix them. Ideally, they should have good technical skills in debugging both theirs and other programmers code.
G. Track record in delivering high quality app development services
Application developers learn most from their failures but still need to have a gleaming portfolio of successfully delivered software projects under their belts.
Additional skills that they need to succeed in your software development project:
- The ability to collaborate with testers and DevOps engineers
- Code review technical skills
- Familiarity with UI design principles
3. How to hire Swift app developers?
Take the following steps:
1. Decide whether to use a freelancer platform or a software development company when you hire
The hiring processes when hiring a Swift developer can be difficult. Unfortunately, you only find out that you have hired a programmer with poor skills when they make a mistake that ends up costing you time and money.
Mobile app development is a serious business, so you need to hire the best.
General-purpose freelancer sites provide access to thousands of part-time Swift developers. If you shop around, you can find developers at the lowest rates on the market. However, this comes with drawbacks. To start with these freelancers are totally unmanaged and you must assume full responsibility for their work.
A better option is the software development-focused freelancer platforms that claim to have reasonable vetting processes in order to ensure developer quality.
Keep in mind that these developers are still freelancers and will be working on several other projects at once. They also don’t come with a project manager or any project management support and managing developers outside of the United States in India, for example, means difficult time zone barriers to overcome.
The best option is to hire a developer or dev team from a software development company such as DevTeam.Space. Not only are all our dedicated developers full-time and so won’t be distracted by side projects, but we guarantee the quality of their work so if you are not 100% happy then you don’t pay.
We provide project management oversight and dedicated account managers. We sign a NDA to secure your project’s sensitive data.
