Customers love TurnKey (and we love them back!)

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.

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 Augmented Reality developers


Why is augmented reality development popular?

Augmented reality development has gained immense popularity in recent years due to its ability to offer an immersive and interactive user experience. By superimposing digital content onto the user's real-world environment, AR technology creates a hybrid reality that can enhance users' perception and interaction with their surroundings. This unique capability of AR has found applications in various fields, from gaming and entertainment to education, healthcare, real estate, and retail, among others. Businesses are increasingly leveraging AR to engage their customers in novel ways, provide them with valuable information, and create memorable brand experiences.

How to hire an augmented reality developer?

The process of hiring an augmented reality developer involves several steps. First, you need to clearly define your project requirements, including the scope of the project, the specific AR technologies to be used, the platforms for which the AR application will be developed, and the project timeline. Once you have a clear understanding of your needs, you can post a detailed job description on job boards, freelance platforms, and professional networking sites. The job description should outline the skills and experience required for the role, the responsibilities of the position, and the benefits offered. You can then screen the applications received, shortlisting candidates based on their skills, experience, and portfolio. The next step is to conduct interviews to assess the candidates' technical knowledge, problem-solving abilities, and cultural fit. Depending on the results of the interviews, you may also want to give the shortlisted candidates a test project to evaluate their practical skills. Finally, once you have identified the most qualified candidate, you can extend a job offer.

Staff augmentation is a a flexible outsourcing strategy that could also be used for hiring an augmented reality developer.  It enables businesses to hire tech talent globally and manage them within their in-house framework. This strategic approach allows you to scale your team up or down as per the project requirements, adding depth and breadth to your talent pool.  At TurnKey, we use standard hiring practices, that will ensure that you get the right tech talent for your specific needs using our staff augmentation services

What skills to look for when hiring top augmented reality engineers?

When hiring augmented reality engineers, there are several key skills to look for. Strong programming skills are a must, particularly in languages commonly used in AR development such as C# (for Unity) or Java (for Android). Experience with AR development tools and platforms, such as ARKit 6 for iOS or ARCore for Android, is also crucial. 

A good AR engineer should also have a solid understanding of 3D modeling and computer graphics, as these are essential for creating realistic and engaging AR content. In addition to these technical skills, problem-solving abilities are important as AR development often involves overcoming unique challenges. Communication skills are also valuable, especially if the engineer will be working as part of a team or will be involved in client interactions.

How to create a hiring funnel for augmented reality engineers?

Here at TurnKey, we are well known for having a great hiring funnel and the lowest churn rate of any staff augmentation software development agency post-hire.

What are the main interview questions to hire augmented reality developers?

When interviewing candidates for an AR/VR developer position, it's important to ask questions that assess their technical knowledge, practical skills, and understanding of AR technology. Some possible questions include: Can you describe a challenging AR project you've worked on and how you overcame the challenges? What AR development tools and platforms are you familiar with? Can you explain the process of creating an AR app from scratch? How do you ensure the performance and usability of the AR apps you develop? How do you stay updated with the latest trends and advancements in AR technology? It can also be beneficial to ask questions about the candidate's problem-solving approach, teamwork skills, and interest in AR technology.
