Our mobile developers are focused on developing software or systems for mobile devices. This role has become popular as more e-commerce and other digital interactions are taking place through smart phones and less through computers. As smart phones evolve, responsive design and other factors have made it easier for consumers to migrate to mobile platforms – and that makes our mobile developers very much in demand.
Our mobile developers work with the “walled garden” systems of dominant smartphone interface and operating system makers – namely Apple, Android and Microsoft. They use languages like Python, PHP, Java and C# to create functionality for smart phone devices or otherwise enhance what mobile devices are able to do for users.
In some ways, the role of mobile developer spun up from the idea of the traditional programmer or developer. This is why our mobile developers use many of the same tools – they typically code in any or all of the above programs and more – but they also tailor their work to the specific iOS or Android (or Windows) interface on which smart phones run. This means, there are specific programming and development skills associated with the role, and that our mobile developers have developed their own “guild” with its lingo and common understandings.
