    IOS Developer Remote Hiring Guide


    When you need to add specific support to an existing in-house development team, a freelance iPhone programmer can be a good solution. However, hiring iOS freelancers is a risky option for long-term projects. Why? they can be late, miscommunicate and give a low performance when working with several clients simultaneously.

    Outsourcing Company

    Outsourcing companies take care of everything, from designing to maintaining your app. However, you don’t have direct management over developers, and you might be not satisfied with the quality outcome of re-working on the same tasks.

    Remote In-House Development Team

    Hiring a remote iOS developer with a full-time contract is the most suitable option for most managers seeking a stable professional relationship. Your new hire will have time to analyze your product and business. The communication across team departments will stabilize, facilitating deliveries, and quality products.

    Our company promotes remote full-time contracts for a simple reason. We don’t want to waste your – and ours – time. The DJ team carefully selects candidates to find a fit with your existing team matching the quality you expect.

    What is an iOS developer?

    iPhone developers write the base side of the application, fixing bugs before the release and maintaining the code to implement future updates. Once the app core structure is ready, your developer will collaborate with your design team for new application features, isolating and fixing bottlenecks to upgrade the app’s functions.

    iOS Developer Role & Responsibilities

    • Designing the iPhone architecture for Apple’s iOS platforms
    • Collaborating with the design team
    • Maintaining quality and performance of the applications
    • Identifying bottlenecks with quick problem-solving
    • Cleaning the core code and fixing bugs before the release
    • Publishing the app on Apple Store
    • Maintaining the code and implementing the automation of the app
    • Improving features and app updates

    Skills to Look For in Your Next Candidate

    1. Programming Languages

    Proficient with Swift, Objective-C, and Cocoa Touch. From iPhone to iPad to Apple TV to Apple Watch, Apple devices are mainly written in Swift, or with a combination of Swift and Objective-C. Keep in mind that almost all iOS libraries use these programming languages!

    2. iOS Frameworks

    Proficient with frameworks such as Core Data, Core Animations, etc. If your app doesn’t process an enormous amount of data, you can look for someone with expertise in iOS apps. If your app is processing a vast amount of data, like paths on a map or history of selected purchases, you will need someone familiar with iOS frameworks.

    3. Networking & Memory Management

    A skilled iOS developer is familiar with app-side code for communicating with RESTful web service and instruments tools to analyze performance issues. Plus, memory management tools like ARC are crucial to handling data.

    4. Debugging & Code Review

    Every developer should be familiar with debugging tools in Xcode to maintain the code running smoothly with some experience in offline storage, threading, and performance tuning. For peer code reviews, you will need a senior dev to improve the quality of your app in the long run.

    5. Security

    Familiar with version control, also known as source control. Collaborative version control tools like GitHub or control systems like git or Mercurial are the most popular for peer code review to protect your investment in code.

    6. Design & User Experience

    Collaborative and communications skills are essential. Besides that, a basic understanding of design patterns and how to support the visual resolution of the app is a valuable addition. This basic knowledge is necessary to improve the user experience, analyzing how the user navigates and interacts with the app layout.
