  • When It Comes to Hiring Mobile Developers, Should You Hire One or Two?

    By Dana Henderson, Practice Manager of Jobspring Los Angeles

    If you ask anyone in the tech industry, or even in the business world, which two markets are going to see the most growth over the next year, I bet that they would say social media or mobile development.  From depositing checks, to shopping, booking flights or filing taxes, people are moving away from their personal computers and relying increasingly on their smartphones and tablets. If a company has any interest in beating their competition, it’s essential for them to have a mobile version of their product, and to have the most efficient, user friendly mobile application out there. With the smartphone market as immensely competitive as it is, companies need to be accessible to all users; meaning, they need to have both an iOS version and an Android option.

    So, how do we effectively and efficiently produce these products? Do you hire a programmer that can work on both platforms, or do you have separate teams to build each one? As a recruiter who gathers requirements from hiring managers on a daily basis, a question we always ask is, “Does this mobile developer need experience with iOS or Android?”  The initial and most common response is, “Well, if they have both that would be great!” Is this a reasonable job requirement, and should all iPhone developers start learning Android if they want to be hired? Or do these managers need to realize that it’s more effective to hire two specialized developers?

    After speaking to a number of mobile developers, the general response is that it hiring specifics depend on the project and the goal of the company.  Generally, if the business relies heavily on the mobile app, or if it’s an essential part of the marketing strategy, or involves complex features, the company should hire separate developers.  To begin, iOS and Android are extremely different in regards to programming techniques. Not only is one written in Objective-C and the other in Java, but the Android platform is generally a bit more challenging, since there are multiple versions. One developer I consulted with said, “What makes it difficult for Android is not the programming (language) part of it, but issues such as fragmentation, API’s not being as swift and nice as with iOS, and the technology moving very quickly. Although all of these things are getting better with Android, it can become difficult for one person to keep on top of everything.” Many other engineers had a similar response, and indicated that since they are two completely different platforms, it is best to have two developers. 

    To add another level of difficulty to finding this “Purple Unicorn”, it is not only necessary to find engineers that are capable of developing on both platforms, but to find one that is interested in learning both. Just like consumers tend to stick to one brand or one smartphone, developers have preferences as well, and some of them are not interested in dedicating 50% of their time to the other device. 

    So why do companies still try to kill two birds with one stone by hiring only one developer?  To save money, of course; which is why many managers think that a strong engineer should know how to program in multiple languages and learn how to build an app on various platforms. This can be true, and there are certainly developers who are very experienced and strong with both platforms. According to one engineer, “Both iOS and Android provide development frameworks that are largely compatible with each other, but neither Apple nor Google push these frameworks as the default environment.  An experienced multi-platform developer can design the app so that the largest percentage of source code is compatible with both platforms, with little-or-no changes.” Essentially, this route would cost less in the long run, since it requires less human capital.

    What is the solution? Do you spend a fortune on a mobile developer who’s a jack-of-all-trades, or hire experts in each department? Well, again, it depends on your goals. If you are looking to have flexible, easy-to-use products that attract a wide variety of users, then save money and hire one developer. If your goals include creating a complex application to target specific users with specific features, then it’s best to go with multiple developers who are strong in each area. The risk with hiring a “generalist” is that they can make small mistakes that require a lot of clean up on both code bases, which then takes more time and money.  More importantly, business owners and hiring managers need to understand the market, and that native mobile developers are hard to find. Business owners and hiring managers must be willing to pay for good talent, and think carefully about time frame, budget, and the goal of the mobile application.

    As for candidates, the more experience they have building apps from start to finish, the more attractive they will be as a candidate. Learning a new platform is always a good idea, as it will broaden the job seeker’s skill sets and make them more marketable. But be careful not to make the mistake of becoming the jack-of-all-trades and master-of-none.

  • Hiring Mobile Talent in Silicon Valley? Everything You Need To Know

    Article by Jason Cooper, Practice Manager for Jobspring Silicon Valley

    I moved to San Jose in January of 2012 having spent the previous year and a half working in our Orange County office. My task: open up a brand new recruiting practice specialized in placing mobile engineers. I was excited to jump head first into a new emerging market, and take on the challenge. Working in the heart of technology and in a time where everyone seemingly owns a smart phone, I didn’t think there would be much of a problem carving out a place in this new frontier. What follows is a series of common themes I’ve encountered in my time here:

    The Senior Candidate?

    One of the first things I noticed was that the majority of companies are looking for senior engineers with plenty of experience building mobile applications. Of course everyone would love to hire someone with a wealth of experience in the domain. That line of thought makes a bit more sense to me with well-established technologies like PHP, Java, or C#.  However, I thought to myself, what constitutes a senior mobile engineer? How can you ask for senior candidates, when the technology itself is so new? Everyone wants people with 2+ years of experience, but there simply aren’t enough of those people to go around. What I encountered were plenty of engineers who fall into the category of what I like to call the “weekend hobbyist.” These people have day jobs in software development, but not working in mobile full-time. They write an app here and there on their own to experiment with the technology and gain experience in the field. Many of these people struggle to find mobile jobs because companies want someone who has been doing it with a team in a production environment. The companies that hold out for the perfect candidate often spend a long time looking. The companies that are most successful in filling their positions are the ones that are open to hiring candidates with good computer science fundamentals, the right attitude, some relevant experience, and a hunger to transition their career into a full-fledged mobile role.

    Native vs. HTML5 vs. Hybrid

    There is no shortage of postings for mobile software engineers on the job boards. In order to stay relevant and reach a larger user base, every company wants some sort of mobile presence. However, it’s difficult to provide candidates, when clients themselves aren’t sure exactly what they are hiring for. A common theme that I’ve noticed is that many companies initially are unsure whether to build a native app, an HTML5 app, or a hybrid app using common frameworks like Sencha or Titanium. Obviously, there are pros and cons to each. From my perspective, nothing compares, from a user experience standpoint, to a truly native app. HTML5 may be the cross-platform answer of the future, but we just are not there yet. Hybrid apps try to bridge the gap, but in my opinion, are still lacking in performance. Since the future is still very much up in the air, I find that many companies are looking for the purple unicorn (i.e. someone who can write native Objective-C or Java code in addition to HTML5 and JavaScript). Finding engineers with 1-2 years of native mobile experience is challenging enough in such a competitive tech market, but layer in strong web development skills, and the task is nearly impossible. Companies need to define what route they are going to take before they begin trying to identify the right candidates. Hire for your immediate needs and not those that you may or may not need.

    Do you actually have a business need?

    As a recruiter, you always want to work with clients that express some level of urgency in filling their position. I am happy to spend the time finding and recruiting candidates, scheduling interviews, getting feedback, etc. if the client is serious about filling their position. However, there are many hiring managers that seem to be “window shopping” when it comes to hiring mobile engineers. Why does this does happen? I suspect one of the primary reasons is because some companies simply don’t have much of an actual business need to hire mobile software engineers. There just isn’t a huge return on investment for them. If the company’s core product is a mobile application then sure there is a legitimate reason for them to invest in the technology. They stand to make money and attract users from it. However, many companies don’t stand to make a profit from their mobile applications. They are looking to build applications merely to have a presence, keep up with their competitors, and retain non-paying users like in the case of banks or insurance companies. Mobile is such a new space that many companies just don’t yet have the pressing need to hire quickly. On the flip side, hiring Java, Python, or Ruby engineers to work on scaling and adding new functionality to an existing product that generates revenue for the company creates a higher level of urgency to hire.

    Salaries and perks in a competitive marketplace

    It’s simple economics; when demand outweighs supply, the price goes up. For iOS and Android engineers that are active in their job search, it is not uncommon for them to generate several offers. With so much competition for talent, the salaries for mobile software engineers have steadily increased in the last year and a half. For those that wish to hire engineers with top 50 CS degrees, the price can be quite high. I have seen recent Stanford and Berkeley grads with mostly academic experience get offers north of $110K. I have seen companies going above and beyond to hire the best senior mobile engineers on the market. They may offer the ability to work from home, extra vacation days, free health benefits, cell phone plans, and sign on bonuses. Silicon Valley already boasts the highest salaries in the country and I anticipate they will continue to increase, as growth in the technology sector shows no signs of slowing down. For iOS and Android engineers in Silicon Valley these are the salary ranges (will depend on experience, education, etc.) one can expect if they were to test the market:

    • Entry-Junior Level: $80,000-$110,000
    • Mid Level: $110,000-$125,000
    • Senior Level: $125,000-$160,000
    • Architect - Hands on Manager: $160,000-$180,000

  • The Boston Security Meet-up Has a Big Week

    Every month or so Jobspring Boston has the pleasure of hosting the Boston Security Meet-Up.  In support of the tech community our office funds the meet-up, providing  free pizza, beer and a space for security enthusiasts to congregate. This past week Jobspring Boston had the chance to sponsor not one, but two events for the Boston Security Meet-Up.  

    The first event took place on Thursday and featured Joe Pranevich, discussing spam email, and Walt Williams, discussing the hacking risk analytics. The second was the first of its kind for the Security Meet-Up, it was an eight hour workshop on focused on Cyber Security 101.

    On Thursday evening, Joe Pravenich kicked the night off with his presentation on understanding email spam. Most people probably don't know this, but spam is the single greatest challenge to email users and providers. For most 'spam' is simply an extra file in our gmail account drop down menus but Joe explained why appearances are deceiving. Joe rocked many a world last night by providing insight into the history of spam, statistics on botnets and spam, where it comes from and how much it costs, and a variety of anti-spam techniques.  When Joe isn't enlightening the masses about spam email he is the Director of Global IT & Infrastructure at Lycos and their parent company Ybrant Digital and also teaches at the Harvard Extension School.

    Walt followed up Joe's spam presentation with a discussion about hacking risk analytics. Walt touched on the exact definition of risk, how it's measured, the difference between probability and frequency, PERT distribution, and how hacking together 3 tools can allow you to perform intelligent analytics.  Coming form a L0Pht background makes Walt an authority on the subject of hacking, it was truly a pleasure to host him our office.

    Following Thursday's presentations was Saturday's Cyber Security 101 workshop, run by Enyel Perez.  Unlike the other meet-ups hosted by Boston Security this one was held at the thoughtbot offices.  As expected, registration filled quickly and the end result was an intimate group of security enthusiasts spending a Saturday afternoon learning all they could about the basics and more advanced concepts of cyber security.  Here's a list of a just a few things this workshop covered: 

    • Exploitation with The Metasploit Framework
    • Service-Side and Client-Side Exploitation Techniques
    • Netcat for the Pentester
    • Traffic redirection and Tunneling Techniques
    • Network Scanning
    • Pivoting
    • Windows Command line Kung-FU
    • Obtaining and Passing Password Representations

    If you missed these events and would like to get involved with future Boston Security Meet-Ups sign up here or follow them on Twitter @securitymeetup #bossec. A special thanks to Joe, Walt, Enyel for presenting and to all the #bossec enthusiasts who came out! 

  • batman.js: Kickin' Apps with Nick Small

    By: Matt Sottile, Recruiter for Jobspring Boston

    Worried about underworld criminals, corrupt politicians or just looking for an easier way to build a browser application?  Meet batman.js!  While the real Batman is tough to track down batman.js is available for download HERE.

    Batman.js was created by Shopify developer Nick Small as a framework for building detailed web applications that includes everything you need, and nothing you don’t.  It is unique in that it is written in CoffeeScript but inspired by Rails making it resourceful for any web developer looking to cut out boilerplate code.  It is supported on all major web browsers.

    I got in touch with Nick over at Shopify as I had a few questions for him.  Shopify is an e-commerce platform used by over 50,000 stores worldwide headquartered in Ottawa, Canada.  Their solutions are simple to use with a clean interface and a variety of pre-made templates designed by Shopify’s e-commerce experts.  I wanted to find out from Nick what batman.js is doing for web development:

    MS: Why did you choose to name the library “Batman”?

    NS: Why not?

    MS: What was the inspiration behind creating the library?

    NS: We set out to rebuild the Shopify merchant interface as a JavaScript application. We wanted a super-fast runtime experience, the ability to prototype new features more easily, and a more responsive and interactive user interface. Think back to those early Wild West days of JavaScript MVC frameworks. Off the top of my head, at the time there was JavascriptMVC, Backbone and early code for SproutCore 2.0. Of these, we liked Backbone the most, but knew that it wouldn't give us nearly enough support to easily build our huge application. That was the idea; to build a framework that would let us work the way we want with our designers and developers, support us as the app grew to hundreds of files and classes and follow the ideas inherent in our culture of how a Shopify app should be developed.

    MS: How can developers make their lives easier by using batman?

    NS: Several ways, but they mostly all come back to convention over configuration. As your app grows naturally larger, where do you put all those files, how do you organize all your code? Like Rails, batman.js offers you firm guidance on where to put everything and generators to help make it easy to adhere to these guidelines. Similarly, naming for all your files, classes and views always follows the same consistent patterns that make it easy for the framework to figure out what you want. Since batman.js is such an opinionated framework, this means that you have to write a lot less boilerplate code to get cool stuff working. Finally, all of the conventions that batman.js follows are copiously similar to those of Rails. While batman.js does not claim to be Rails for JavaScript, it does use similar tried-and-tested conventions that will make Rails developer feel right at home, while speeding up the learning curve and development time for everyone else.

         MS: Why should people use batman instead of other available frameworks?

    NS: I firmly believe you should use whichever framework is the tool best suited for the project at hand. There are so many frameworks now it can be easy to drown in the choice and face decision paralysis. But honestly, that just means it's even more important to take your time and evaluate the options. Choosing a framework that makes big decisions for you that you don't agree with can have major consequences later. You should pick batman.js because you will enjoy building your app with it, because you agree with our decisions and our conventions; it is definitely an opinionated framework. If not, you should pick or build the framework that is most inline with how you want to work.

         MS: What are you planning for future releases?

    NS: We have 0.15.0 coming up in the near future. The previous release contained a ton of bugfixes and performance improvements that have been extracted directly out of the big release of Shopify 2, which we just shipped. 0.15.0 is now a chance for us to get heavily involved in batman.js again. It's going to break a lot of the API's in order to make them better. It's going to bring things more inline with Rails 4 and make a lot of things in general a lot more friendly and fun to use. We're working on making the learning curve a lot better too. We're about to release a new version of batman-rails that will make using batman.js with Rails trivially simple, as well as making this the recommended way of setting up batman.js. We also have a brand new website and documentation set we're gearing up to release with the new version. Finally, we're going to start pushing batman.js as THE best JavaScript framework for Rails developers, just because they'll feel at home so quickly. All these things will tie together really nicely.

    There are some really exciting things in the pipeline and we absolutely love working on this framework.

    I want to thank Nick for taking time of his busy day to answer my questions.  Looking to create an online store?  Check out http://shopify.com to get started today!

  • Jobspring Los Angeles Tech in Motion: The Next Generation of E-Commerce Technologies

    Last Wednesday, Jobspring Los Angeles hosted its Tech in Motion meetup at Blankspaces LA! The discussion topic, presented by Tom Nora, was "The Next Generation of E-Commerce Technologies." Tom is the founder and CEO of neoREY, as well as Director of Startups Workshops.

    During the event, he discussed the burst of e-commerce companies in LA and Silicon Beach. Our turnout was great, especially of people with their own startups! Tom gave our attendees helpful ideas and advice with which they can move forward.

    We were able to chat with Tom and have him answer some questions!

     

    JS: How did you get started speaking at Meetups?  

    TN: I started speaking a few years ago at Silicon Valley, Boulder and Austin meetups groups about my experiences with startups I've launched and built over the years. I did it to help new entrepreneurs learn what to do and more importantly what not to do when launching a company. 

    At the time I thought it would just be a short term thing but it's been continuous for 5 years now and growing into an actual business.

    JS: Which E-Commerce company do you find most impressive at the moment?

    TN: There are so many great new companies right now. I like simple yet extremely innovative business models and simple beautiful interfaces, so I guess I'd say GILT.com. Even the name is simple. Gilt makes you want to buy and explore and has beautiful photography. Also, amazon, even though an older design, is still #1 in e-commerce and extremely easy to use. 

    JS: You've talked about what you think the next big thing in technology is – on the flipside of that, what do you see (or hope to see) fading?

    TN: Good Question. It seems like the old school, busy e-commerce sites with flashy banner ads are going away. Sites that try to sell unrelated things to shoppers, run slowly or keep asking you to buy one more thing before you can go to the next step - taking the control away from you. For example Go Daddy.

    JS: We know you have neoREY, but do you have any side projects you’re working on?

    TN: I've been working on a machine learning based site for the long term unemployed to leverage each other to find work and compare notes, plus I'm usually advising 1 or 2 startups at a low level.

    JS: What advice do have for someone looking to advance their career in the technology field?

    TN: Continuously Learn - pick an area you know and like and learn as much about it as possible. Everything is a website these days, so understanding at least the terms of web technologies would be a good start.

    2. Start a Project - There are many zero-coding ways to be on the web npw. You could start with a wordpress blog on a topic you care about, build a mobile app.

    3. Learn the Jobs Above You - This worked well for me when was building my career. Don't crowd your superiors but learn from them, hang out with them, ask them to teach you things. All good leaders are always training their replacement.

  • Jobspring Orange County Tech in Motion: OC presents Starting a Startup with K5 Launch

    Last week, Jobspring Orange County hosted Starting a Startup: What you need to know from K5 Launch at ROC Airport.  This event was Tech in Motion: OC's 3rd event of 2013 and our best yet.  This event featured K5 Launch, an Orange County institution when it comes to venture capitalists and a startup accelerator in the region.  We also had 3 members of Tech in Motion: OC present their startup ideas to Ray Chan, one of the managing partners of K5 Launch, and the group.  

    The event started with an hour of heavy networking fueled with food and drinks.  Real Offices Center Newport Beach filled up quickly with startups, entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts who were interested to learn the ins and outs of startups in Orange County.  

    Ray Chan and his business partner Amir Banifatemi began our presentation by giving us background on what K5 does and how they are successful in our region.  K5 has a 5-year plan to help over 1,000 startups and they gave us the 10 most important things they look for in a startup.  After their presentation there was an in depth Q & A session where the audience got to ask any questions they might have on entrepreneurship.

    The 3 startup pitches were as follows:

    • Steve Gladstone presented his startup idea, Culture Widget, which is a culture based job search site that will focus more on personality and culture preferences over skill set and keywords.  His thought is that a cultural match will reduce turnover, save companies money and create less headaches for candidates.  He is currently looking for founders and software developers that are truly passionate about revolutionizing today's broken hiring practices and who would like to make real, positive differences in the lives of people and hiring companies. 
    • Christos Vrahnos presented his startup idea, CoinHog, which is a new approach to "pinching pennies" by utilizing exsisting stores' rewards and loyalty programs.  His idea is that companies will sign up to utilize CoinHog and when a customer signs up for the program, any change from their purchase will go into a customizable savings program that can be deposited into their accounty, sent to them via check / coupons or they can redeem it for future purchases.  He is looking for a partner and a developer to get his idea off the ground.
    • Srikanth Deshpande presented his startup idea, Pick2Pay, which is a mobile / web application that helps users maximize their credit card rewards by helping them choose the right card for every purchase, online or in-store.  Pick2Pay is currently an app available in the iTunes store and Srikanth is looking for partnerships with corporations and businesses to participate in this program.  

    Each presenter had 5-10 minutes to pitch their idea and there was a Q & A session afterwards.  Ray and Amir also gave their feedback on each idea as to whether it was fundable or what things they could do to garner interest.  The event was very successful and we look forward to doing another startup themed panel like this again.  Thanks again to Ray, Amir, Steve, Christos and Srikanth for their participation.  

    If you would like more information about any of these ideas, please contact: [email protected]
