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.

Skills to look for when you hire top iOS engineers?

When you're looking to hire top iOS engineers, there are 5 most essential skills that you should be looking out for:

  1. Technical Proficiency: The most important skill is proficiency in Objective-C and Swift, the two main programming languages used for iOS app development. Top engineers will have extensive experience in using these languages to create and implement complex app functions.
  2. Understanding of the iOS Ecosystem: Familiarity with the iOS ecosystem, including the iOS SDK, Xcode, Cocoa Touch, and other development tools, is essential. They should also be up-to-date with the latest iOS updates and understand how changes might affect the development process.
  3. Knowledge about iOS UI/UX Design Principles: Top iOS engineers should have a good understanding of Apple's design principles and interface guidelines to ensure apps have a native look and feel. This includes knowledge about creating layouts for different screen sizes and orientations.
  4. Experience with APIs and Libraries: Experience with third-party libraries and APIs is often required for iOS development. This includes understanding how to integrate these tools into an app and troubleshoot any issues that might arise.
  5. Proficiency in Core Data and Other Persistence Frameworks: A key part of many apps is storing data, and engineers should be proficient in Core Data or other persistence frameworks.

Top interview questions to hire iOS developers

When interviewing iOS developers, you might want to ask about their experience with the iOS platform, how they approach problem-solving, and examples of their past work. Additionally, asking about their experience with team collaboration and project management can provide insights into their work style. From our experience, here are some top interview questions to ask when you're hiring iOS developers:

  • Can you discuss a challenging iOS app development project you worked on and how you overcame those challenges (This question will help you evaluate the candidate's problem-solving skills and how they handle challenging situations.)
  • Can you describe your experience with third-party libraries and APIs? (Many iOS apps require integration with third-party libraries and APIs. A developer's experience with these integrations can be crucial for certain projects.)
  • What is your experience with app store submission and the review process? (Publishing an app to the Apple App Store is not always straightforward. Understanding the developer's experience with this process can be very useful.)

What are the tools used by iOS developers?

iOS developers use a variety of tools, including Xcode for building apps, the iOS SDK for accessing device features, and programming languages like Objective-C. They also use project management tools, version control systems like Git, and testing tools to ensure app quality.
