How to Hire an Android Developer: In-house or Outsourcing

Check the details
  • Despite lots of tips on how to find Android developers who will fit right into your current workflows, there are no shortcuts to speed up the search. It will probably take you 2-6 months to find one suitable in-house Android expert, while outsourcing can help you do this in just a few days.
  • When you hire Android app developers in-house, you form long-term legal obligations with your new hires. But when you outsource to a vendor, you can put the cooperation on hold or cancel it anytime.
  • Differences in geolocation of outsourced developers usually create differences in their hourly rates. This can help you cut the costs of your Android development project.
