3 Years in a Row Best in KLAS for Ambulatory Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) Services

"TurnKey is the only offshore firm we've interacted with that really places an emphasis on retention. They seem to be the only ones that understand how important retention is to maintaining strong product development cycles. Our churn rate with TurnKey has been under 5% annually whereas we were at more than 50% with our previous vendor!"

We've hired 5 full-time software engineers through TurnKey. To date, not a single engineer has left our contract/arrangement. We worked with several U.S.-based recruitment firms, and none matched the speed and quality of candidates referred by TurnKey. Most impressive and unique about TurnKey is their willingness to reach for the perfect candidate. Our requirements are strict, and they did not compromise.

"It's been nearly two years of us working together and we have not had the need to replace a single developer. The programmers have all performed very well and TurnKey has been able to give us information that has helped to retain our key players."


Mackezie Drazan (US)

CEO of MiResource

We have hired 5 total developers including tech lead, full stack, dev ops and firmware. For each hire, a strong pipeline of candidates was provided, and the TurnKey team performed a lot of pre-screening such that those that entered the funnel were strong and relevant. They also helped with setting salary comp, and closing. Finally they continue to provide HR services as well as legal admin services associated with employment of a geographically diverse group of developers.

We started with 8 hired developers and there have been no problems with any of the hires. We are currently monitoring them as we do all engineers but there is nothing to report that would make us consider this arrangement with TurnKey anything but successful. The transparent pricing up front as well as the genuine desire to continue improving with each hire we make is a big difference maker for us.

TurnKey provided high-quality talent at a cost-effective price. We employed TurnKey to manage the hiring/HR/Legal for >80% of our entire Product team - from identifying and hiring Team Leads, to agent level support roles. I also appreciated that they were proactive in suggesting certain criteria and requirements when first starting our search for key team lead members.


Ryan Rice (US)

The Best E-Signature Software According to G2

We reviewed several similar companies and along with the cost the major deciding factor was the quality of experienced candidates TurnKey was presenting to us. The additional team members worked alongside our scrum teams delivering new feature functionality and enhancements to our platform.We're impressed with the quality of their candidates and the work ethic they demonstrate on a day-to-day basis in our agile ceremonies.


Sandy Speirs (US)

Director Of Engineering at Sertifi, Inc.

TurnKey is well versed in the startup ecosystem and really understands our needs when it comes to offshore dev, particularly how our needs may be different than the needs of a huge public company. I don’t have to explain as much to TurnKey as I have had to do with other offshore vendors—they seem to get it on the first take. But at the end of the day, all we really care about is quality, and TurnKey has delivered the goods on this front better than other firms we’ve worked with in the past.

Key Questions – and Answers! – about Android developers


Why is Android development necessary?

Android development is vital due to the extensive user base that the Android platform commands globally. With billions of Android devices in use around the world, developing an Android app can substantially extend your reach, allowing you to connect with a vast audience and tap into new markets. Furthermore, Android's open-source nature provides unparalleled flexibility and customization possibilities, enabling you to craft apps that are precisely tailored to meet your specific business requirements and customer expectations.


In today's digital age, where mobile usage has surpassed desktop usage, having a mobile presence has become a necessity for businesses. And given Android's dominant market share, it makes sense for businesses to invest in Android development. By developing an Android app, businesses can provide their customers with a convenient and user-friendly way to interact with them, enhancing customer engagement and loyalty.


Moreover, Android apps can serve a variety of purposes, from providing information about your products or services and facilitating online purchases, to offering customer support and serving as a platform for digital marketing campaigns. Therefore, regardless of your industry or business size, Android development can play a crucial role in driving your business growth and success.

How to hire an Android developer?

The process of hiring offshore Android developers involves several steps, each designed to ensure that you find the right candidate for your project. The first step is to clearly define your project requirements. This involves identifying the specific tasks that the developer will need to perform, the technologies they will need to be proficient in, and the level of experience they will need to have. Having a clear understanding of your project requirements will help you identify the skills and qualifications you should look for in candidates, and will form the basis of your job description.


After you've defined your project requirements, the next step is to advertise your job opening. This could involve posting the job on online job boards, sharing it on social media, or sending it out to your professional network. When advertising the job, be sure to include a detailed job description that outlines the responsibilities of the role, the skills and qualifications required, and any other relevant information. This will help attract candidates who are a good fit for the role and deter those who are not.


Once you've advertised the job and started receiving applications, the next step is to screen the applicants. This involves reviewing their resumes and portfolios, checking their references, and conducting initial interviews. During this stage, you'll want to assess the candidates' technical skills, their problem-solving abilities, their communication skills, and their cultural fit with your organization. This will help you narrow down your pool of candidates and identify those who are most likely to succeed in the role.


After the screening stage, the next step is to conduct technical interviews or tests. This could involve asking the candidates to write code, solve programming problems, or discuss complex technical concepts. The purpose of this stage is to evaluate the candidates' practical skills and their ability to apply their theoretical knowledge in real-world scenarios.


Finally, once you've assessed all the candidates, the last step is to make a job offer to the one who best meets your needs. This offer should include details of the salary, benefits, work hours, and other terms of employment. It's important to remember that the hiring process doesn't end once the job offer is accepted. Onboarding is a crucial part of the hiring process and can significantly impact a new hire's productivity and job satisfaction.

However, if you want to skip all this hassle and immediately get  help to build a team of Android developers that can integrate, and grow while they make a valuable contribution to your projects, partner with us and experience our unique tech staffing solutions as we live and breathe cultural integration. TurnKey is the accelerated way to unlock the full potential of Android development services, reap the benefits of a global workforce, and achieve long-term success.

What skills to look for when you hire top Android engineers?

When hiring a top Android engineer, there are several key skills and areas of knowledge you should look for. First and foremost, the engineer should have strong proficiency in Java and/or Kotlin, the primary programming languages used for Android development. They should be well-versed in using the Android SDK and Android Studio, the official IDE for Android development. Knowledge of APIs, databases, and UI/UX design principles is also important, as these are often integral parts of Android development.


In addition to these technical skills, the engineer should have a solid understanding of the Android platform and its unique characteristics. This includes knowledge of Android's architecture, lifecycle management, device compatibility issues, and the principles of material design. Furthermore, they should be familiar with the processes of testing, debugging, and deploying Android apps, and should be able to use version control systems such as Git.

Beyond these technical skills, a top Android engineer should also possess strong problem-solving skills, as they will often need to find innovative solutions to technical challenges. Good communication skills are also important, as the engineer will need to collaborate with other team members and potentially interact with clients or stakeholders. Finally, the engineer should demonstrate a commitment to continuous learning, as the field of Android development is constantly evolving and requires developers to stay up-to-date with the latest tools, techniques, and best practices.

Hiring the best Android engineers for your needs is exactly where TurnKey can really help. During our recruiting process, every candidate is put through a robust screening protocol. And since our recruiting process is based on years of best practice and scientific rigor, we always find a perfect match for your company’s needs.

These developers have since become an integral part of the Headspace team, contributing significantly to the company’s growth and success.

How to create a hiring funnel for Android engineers?

Creating a hiring funnel can be a complex and time-consuming process, but it's a crucial aspect of hiring top Android engineers. By thoroughly vetting candidates at each stage of the funnel, you can ensure that the person you hire is not only highly skilled and experienced but also a great fit for your team.

Of course using TurnKey is a highly effective way to create a hiring funnel for Android engineers.  We offer startups and high growth tech firms access to a vast pool of pre-vetted talent from various countries with diverse skill sets. This enables them to select a team that aligns best with their specific business needs. Our custom recruiting process is optimized to ensure that clients can quickly onboard their team. 

What are the main interview questions to hire Android developers?

When interviewing Android developers, it's important to ask questions that assess not only their technical skills but also their problem-solving abilities and communication skills. Here are some questions you might consider:


  1. Can you explain the Android app lifecycle? This question can help you assess the candidate's understanding of the fundamental concepts of Android development. Their answer can give you insight into their technical knowledge, and their ability to explain complex concepts in a clear and understandable way.

  2. How do you handle data persistence in Android? Data persistence is an essential aspect of Android development, and how a developer handles it can significantly impact the functionality and user experience of your app. A good answer to this question will demonstrate the candidate's understanding of the various methods of data persistence in Android, such as shared preferences, SQLite databases, and content providers, and their ability to choose the most appropriate method for a given situation.

  3. Can you discuss a challenging problem you faced in a previous Android project and how you solved it? This question can give you insights into the candidate's problem-solving skills and their ability to handle challenges. A good answer will not only describe the problem and the solution but also the thought process and steps they took to arrive at the solution. This can give you a sense of how the candidate approaches problems and whether they're able to think critically and creatively.

  4. How do you ensure that an Android app delivers a consistent user experience across different devices and screen sizes? With the wide variety of Android devices and screen sizes available, ensuring a consistent user experience is one of the biggest challenges in Android development. This question can help you assess the candidate's understanding of this challenge and their ability to address it effectively.

  5. How do you test an Android app? Testing is a crucial part of Android development, and a good Android developer should be well-versed in the various types of testing and the tools and techniques used for each. This question can give you a sense of the candidate's approach to testing, their attention to detail, and their commitment to delivering high-quality, bug-free apps.

Asking these questions can help you gauge whether a candidate has the technical competence, problem-solving skills, and communication abilities to be a successful Android developer. It's also a good idea to tailor your questions to the specific requirements of your project, to ensure that the candidate has the necessary skills and experience.
