Why should you pick React Native for your next mobile project?
With React Native, mobile app developers can create the same code base (up to 70% of the whole code!) for both the iOS and Android versions of software. This makes the development process much faster, especially in the project’s early stages.
Being a framework developed by Facebook engineers, React Native is incredibly popular and supported by a huge community of devs. This means you can rest assured that the technology will be supported for many years to come.
As React Native developers can work simultaneously on both the Android and iOS versions of the app, you don’t need to hire separate teams to handle these two platforms.
This allowed a number of experienced devs to adjust their career paths and start exploring the world of mobiles more.
But how to hire React Native developers who will really fit your project and make an app ranking high on App Store and Google Play? Here is our short guide full of useful tips.
When working as a developer, a specific set of hard skills is obviously needed. When you look to hire a React Native developer, you should search especially for the following skills.
a) Expo - The perfect working environment for every React Native developer. Includes easy access to multiple useful APIs and ready-to-use components which significantly speed up the whole development process.
b) Visual Studio Code and Visual Studio App Center - Microsoft-run solutions for developers that cover nearly the whole process of app development, from writing code to debugging and analyzing to launching the final product.
d) Bitrise - A popular solution among React Native developers when choosing tools for continuous integration and delivery.
e) Flow - Static type checker for React, developed by Facebook. Makes it easier to write code with fewer bugs.
f) Ignite - CLI (Command Line Interface) for React, including a huge number of useful boilerplates and plugins. Constantly updated.
When working on a mobile app, teamwork is essential. That’s why your new React Native developer, besides the technical knowledge, should also possess the following soft skills.
Mobile apps can vary hugely from each other. While probably every professional React Native developer can ultimately build the app you want, one who is already experienced with your industry may do it simply faster and better. Because of this, we highly encourage you to review the candidate’s CV in regard to the similarity of their previous experience to what your company represents.
Working on an e-commerce solution? Find someone who has already worked on a shopping app or with platforms like Shopify.
Thinking about an app for tourists? Look for React Native developers who worked for a travel startup.
Joining the financial mobile revolution? Search for engineers coming from fintechs or banks.
Many developers don’t only care about the salary. Those truly experienced, who have been on the market for years, choose their next career step based also on other benefits. This often includes overall company culture as it highly determines how they feel at their workplace and how motivated they will be to come to the office every day.
But successful companies also look for a culture fit in their new hires. According to a report by the “Entrepreneur” magazine, at Zappos, a clothing retailer owned by Amazon, a separate culture company interview, done for each potential employee, significantly influences the final decision of the hiring team. Similar processes are also taking place at other companies worldwide.
What constitutes company culture? How employees interact with each other, what ways of improving their skills during work they have, the trust level between managers and those managed, the goal everyone strives for, and so much more. It’s not an easy way to assess your company culture and find another perfect match to join your team, but it’s definitely worth it, as you can end up with a person who will blend in from day one and stay with you for years to come.
Review the CV and portfolio that your new potential React Native developer has delivered. Ask about all the apps they have contributed to, focusing on those that somehow match what you are planning to do with your own project. Reach out to the developer’s previous bosses (ask for references during the first interview).
Finally, ask a professional React Native developer (or an IT Project Manager with experience in RN) to run the technical interview with you. If you have just started to establish a team for your startup, use your contacts to find someone suitable to help you out.
Potential technical questions that a React Native developer should be asked are:
React Native developers can provide you with all the needed tech base for your project, but there are so many more variables that influence your product’s success. To make your app look attractive, you need a great designer. To understand the needs of your customers, a data analytics expert will be useful. And to manage it all, experts like IT project managers and product owners will come in handy.
