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.


Ryan Rice (US)

Founder & CEO of ResNet AI Inc.
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 Swift developers


What does a Swift developer do?

A Swift Developer plays a critical role in creating and maintaining applications for platforms like iOS and OS X. They leverage their expertise in Swift, a powerful programming language developed by Apple, to build applications that are secure, efficient, and user-friendly. Their responsibilities span across designing, coding, and testing the application, as well as debugging it and integrating it with other systems. 


A Swift developer works closely with other team members, including UI/UX designers, QA testers, and product managers, to ensure that the application meets the desired requirements and provides a seamless user experience. They also need to stay updated with the latest Swift updates and industry trends, continuously improving their skills and adapting to new challenges. Given the popularity of iOS devices and the increasing demand for mobile applications, the role of a Swift developer is more important than ever in today's digital age.

What is Swift app development?

Swift app development refers to the process of creating applications using Swift, a robust and intuitive programming language developed by Apple. Swift was designed to be easy to learn and use, yet powerful enough to build everything from a simple note-taking app to a complex, data-heavy enterprise application. Swift app development involves various stages, including planning, designing, coding, testing, and deployment. 


At each stage, developers leverage the features and capabilities of Swift to create an application that is secure, efficient, and user-friendly. For example, they might use Swift programming language powerful syntax to write clean and concise code, its standard library to implement common functionalities, and its compatibility with Apple's hardware and software ecosystem to create a seamless user experience. And thanks to Swift's focus on performance and safety, developers can create apps that run fast, don't crash, and keep user data safe.

Who developed Swift?

Swift was developed by Chris Lattner and a team of programmers at Apple. The development of this powerful programming language began in July 2010, with the aim of creating a language that combines the best features of existing languages, while also introducing new, innovative features. Since its launch in 2014, Swift has gained widespread popularity among developers and has become the preferred language for iOS and macOS app development. Today, Swift is used by developers all over the world to create a wide range of applications, from mobile and desktop apps to cloud services and machine learning models. Swift is also open source, meaning that developers can contribute to its development, making it constantly evolving and improving.

Is Swift development in demand?

Absolutely, Swift development is in high demand. According to the 2021 StackOverflow developer survey, Swift was ranked 20th in the list of popular programming languages. Given its powerful features, ease of use, and the growing popularity of iOS devices, the demand for skilled Swift developers is on the rise. Businesses across various sectors, from tech startups to large corporations, are seeking Swift developers to create high-quality, efficient, and secure iOS applications. As more and more consumers turn to their smartphones to shop, work, learn, and entertain themselves, the demand for mobile apps is skyrocketing.

And with Swift being the primary language for iOS app development, the need for Swift developers is expected to grow even further.

What are the main interview questions to hire Swift developers?

When interviewing Swift developers, it's crucial to ask questions that assess their technical skills, problem-solving abilities, and understanding of Swift and the iOS platform. Some key questions could include:

  • Can you explain how memory management works in Swift?
  • How would you handle error propagation in Swift?
  • What is the difference between 'let' and 'var' in Swift?
  • Can you describe your experience with multithreading in iOS?
  • How would you optimize the performance of a slow-running Swift application? 

These questions can help you evaluate the candidate's practical knowledge and experience with Swift, as well as their problem-solving skills and attention to detail. It's also a good idea to ask about their past projects and their approach to software development, to get a sense of their hands-on experience and their ability to work in a team.
