As more and more companies seek to hire their own internal mobile development personnel, it has become increasingly difficult to recruit people with the necessary experience, location, and employment terms. Traditional technology headhunters struggle to qualify candidates with the appropriate skills in this bleeding-edge fast-changing industry. For nearly four years, On The GoWARE has been amassing a database, known as the “Mobile Developer Network,” of US-based mobile software developers interested in working for the firm.
On The GoWARE has been hiring their resources through this database to work on development and training projects for their corporate clientele, and the database now far exceeds the needs for On The GoWARE’s own client services. On The GoWARE now helps corporate recruiters and headhunters find the people they desperately need.
“We discovered that we’re fantastic in placement services for mobile programmers” stated Mike Newman, President of On The GoWARE. “We have years of experience qualifying talented mobile developers, and we’ve also collected probably the single largest database of good mobile developers in the country, many of whom possess our Mobile Development Institute Certified Developer title. Within a couple days we are often able to place the perfect candidate who it may take traditional recruiters weeks to find.
One of the greatest challenges for traditional corporate recruiters is finding candidates that possess cross-platform and system integration skills. Experience with iOS and/or Android programming alone is usually not enough to suit the needs of businesses connecting mobile apps to web services, databases, and ERP/MRP systems. An unique part of the Mobile Developer Network database is its rich collection of developers with “superskills,” or abilities in technologies other than in building standalone mobile apps.
The Mobile Developer Network’s members are experienced developers in Apple iOS (iPhone/iPad), Google Android, RIM BlackBerry, and Microsoft Windows Mobile platforms. Skilled mobile developers looking for both contract and full-time placement opportunities may contact On The GoWARE for information on how to qualify for enrollment in the Mobile Developer Network.
