Mobile application developers need strong analytical and problem-solving capabilities.
Employers require previous experience building mobile applications and mobile websites for Android, iOS, Symbian, Windows Mobile or Windows Phone.
A degree in computer science or computer engineering is typically required, though work samples of completed applications may soften that requirement.
Typical Duties of a Mobile Application Developer:
- App coding, testing, debugging, documenting and monitoring
- Interacting with different departments within the organization regarding new deployments
- Contributing to the development of project schedules and workflows
- Recommending changes and enhancements to software applications
