What skills do you need to work in Android app development?

  • Mobile developer & programming jobs

    World-class programming ability

    There’s no way around it: Android app developer jobs are extremely technical roles that involve lots of active development and coding time. You’ll want to make sure you’re very confident in Java to start out, but consider picking up Python or Kotlin, too — both are great additions to a full stack Android developer’s skill set.

  • Software developer jobs

    Android SDK Experience

    You wouldn’t show up to a carpentry job and not know how to use a hammer – the Android SDK, or Software Development Kit, is the mobile app developer’s equivalent tool. It contains essential libraries, or big collections of code, for quick deployment when creating apps.

  • Software Engineer Jobs - PTP

    Software testing and QA

    Testing applications before deployment is critical in Android developer jobs. While many users are understanding of the occasional bug, an app that crashes too often is likely to be abandoned, rendering it useless to the company that created it.

  • Systems Analyst Jobs - Peterson Technology Partners

    Research and Analysis

    With millions of Android devices being used, and even more being purchased and activated every day, developers will need to be comfortable working with very large data sets in order to make the best use of this valuable resource.

  • Technology Jobs - PTechPartners

    Collaboration and Teamwork Skills

    Tech is a team sport! As an Android application engineer, you’ll need to be able to work as part of a larger project team and break down projects into manageable chunks as a group to excel.

What are the future prospects for Android application developers?

Android application developer jobs are needed in many kinds of businesses – essentially, any organization with an existing Android application will need to source strong developer talent so as to maintain or upgrade it.

According to recent research conducted by the United States Bureau of Labor and Statistics, senior Android developer jobs can command salaries ranging well into the respective six figures. Well qualified individuals with strong tech skills and programming ability will find that Android jobs are a good, stable match for their skill set and disposition.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Android developer a good choice of career?

  • What are some of the most common roles in Android application development?

    Since Android software engineers are responsible for the entirety of a company’s Android application development efforts, they tend to be involved at multiple touchpoints during the development lifecycle. These team members will often be involved with the application in related tasks past the completion of development, like conducting routine training and maintenance. Some common roles include:

    • Android App Designer – Responsible for an application’s overall look and feel, these professionals also zero in on the finer points of the UI, making sure the app’s navigation is simple yet intuitive.
    • Android App Developer – Working with the Android SDK and programming languages like Java, these developers put in the work to make the application fully functional. They also keep the application’s code base clean and easy for other team members to work with.
    • Android App Tester – Software testing is a mandatory step in development. Here, bugs are spotted, either visually in lines of code or via automated testing, and resolved. Once the app is error-free, it goes live.
    • Maintenance/Support – While Android developers strive to code cleanly and without errors, at times they are still called upon to perform troubleshooting maneuvers and deploy various patches to fix newly discovered glitches.
  • What are the job responsibilities of an Android software engineer?

    Android software engineers are responsible for designing and constructing mobile applications to be run on Android mobile devices.
