VP of Product and Engineering & Director of Strategic Partnerships and Integrations at Svenn (former 24onoff)

“Working with you guys has been fantastic. The level of expertise of your development team is as good as the people that we get in the UK. You’ve got a fantastic talent base of programmers over there in Ukraine. It’s more challenging to find people of that quality in the UK.”

Hire Android engineers in 4 steps

1. Describe your need

Contact us so we can get familiar with your needs. The more time we spend learning about your requirements, the more effective our further work will be.

2. Review candidates

After rigorous checks by our recruitment team, we will provide you with a list of several Android app developers to choose from.

3. Finalize your choice

Once you approve the candidates, we help them integrate into your project smoothly. The choice regarding the management approach and tools is yours. If it’s possible, we arrange an in-person meeting, and if not, we use video conferencing and other communication tools.

4. Begin development

In the end, your team benefits from having more experts who are under your complete control. It’s like having more in-house employees who are working remotely. Also, we handle all the administration and you get to spend less than you would, had you hired them on your own.

FAQ

How much does it cost to hire an Android app developer?

Android developer salaries depend on the person’s individual skill level (junior, middle, or senior), professional experience, country of residence, the company, and so on.

To illustrate, compare average senior Android developer hourly rates in three different regions ‒ Ukraine, the United States and Western Europe, and India.

India The United States and Western Europe Ukraine
$8-10 $100-200 $30-90

Note, Ukrainian programmers are as qualified as the best others. Based on the HackerRank challenges, Ukrainian developers are in Top-20, most of the time even breaking into Top-10.

What are the best ways of hiring remote Android app developers?

You can go about hiring remote Android developers in two ways ‒ use freelance websites or partner up with outstaffing companies. It’s possible to book an individual contractor for a few hours or outsource the Android development team for the entire project. Let’s take a closer look at both.

Hiring freelancers

Hiring freelance contractors is the way to go for many companies. Some of the most popular platforms work in a similar manner. You go to the website, set up your “client” account, create a job post, wait for the candidates to send you their job applications, and discuss with your preferred developers how you are going to work together.

Pros of working with freelancers:

  • Lower rates;
  • Large talent pool;
  • Previous clients’ reviews available;
  • Very good for short-term projects or making minor changes to the existing ones.

Cons of working with freelancers:

  • No quality guarantees;
  • Your only protection is the platform’s policy;
  • Different time zones;
  • Possible language barrier;
  • You have to manage everything yourself.

Hiring Android developers through Ukrainian IT companies

A universally beneficial option for projects of any size and budget is hiring Android developers via Ukrainian IT companies. Outstaffing from Eastern Europe is less expensive than adding more in-house employees, but it is just as reliable.

Pros of outstaffing through IT companies

  • Cost-effectiveness;
  • Dedicated manager for each project;
  • Guaranteed expertise and reliability;
  • Great team experience and quality work.

Cons of outstaffing

  • Possible language barrier;
  • Different time zones.

You can outsource one developer or the entire team through IT companies. The key is to find software developers and a partner you can trust. Ukraine is a well-known IT hub, so you can be sure that your project is going to be in good hands. All you need is to give out as many details of your project as possible and be willing to collaborate along the process.
