How to hire mobile app developers in Chicago

The Key Components of Success

Portfolio and references


If you want to investigate the hard skills of a programming team, don’t stop at the resume. Check out their portfolio. If you want first-hand information, you can even get a sample of the open source code.

This will give you more insight into the agency’s talents and proficiency.

Mobile app development is a time-consuming process and involves significant responsibility, so make sure you choose someone you like. If a Project Manager does not ask you any questions or the SRS remains vague, think twice.

Your partner should represent a professional app development team that can provide you with a channel for clear communication.

Communication is key


Price is secondary


You want to stay within your budget, even if it’s limited. However, your goal is to have a quality product that will transform your company into a leader of the pack.

A mobile app is an investment that if cared for provides the highest ROI.

Be ready for overhead costs

Overhead costs are unavoidable in mobile app development, especially if your idea of the end result is vague. This is absolutely normal and to be expected. If sticking to your budget is top priority, be sure to prepare a detailed financial plan at the stage of Strategy and Assessment.

Prioritize design

Attractive visuals and user-friendly interface are 60% of mobile app development success. Users need to enjoy the technical features of your product, but good design will confirm user come-back.

If you decide to work with a freelance app developer, you should also hire a designer who is experienced in working with apps to guarantee a quality visual concept.

Primary concerns when hiring a developer

Is it a professional?

As we have already advised, have a look at their portfolio. And if you are not ready to risk your budget and reputation, address a mobile app development firm with positive reviews where the HR has already made a selection for you.

Disappearance in the middle of the project

You want to be sure you can trust your vendor to listen to your needs, meet deadlines, and finish the project despite instability of the market. Make your relationship with the software developer official and work under the contract. In large development agencies, it is a mandatory condition for cooperation.


App development necessitates flexibility to correspond to daily fluctuations and trends in the market. First, choose a methodology to follow that best suits your needs: Agile or Waterfall. This choice defines the process of app deployment and also time-budget limits.

Agile: work in short iterations, constant client-developer interaction, flexible feature list and final release date.

Waterfall: no changes to the initial agreed upon set of features, rigid budget-time limits, clear plan of action and desired results.

Freelance prices are often lower than those of a development agency. Though the pricelist cost per hour seems appealing, keep in mind that you will also have to cover all the potential bugs, as well as to pay for the additional hours.
