A mobile developer specializes in mobile technology, and the demand for their skills set has never been stronger due to the almost essential use of mobile devices in the daily lives of people around the world.

Mobile developers are a type of software developer that specializes in mobile technology such as building apps for Google’s Android, Apple’s iOS, and Microsoft’s Windows Phone platforms.

You can hire mobile developers for between $3.75 and $20.00 per hour, with the average falling between $6.25 and $12.00 per hour for a good quality intermediate mobile developer.

Although hiring mobile developers in the Philippines is primarily about saving on salary costs, while still getting great quality programmers. Don’t forget, that if you try to save too much on the salary, you might get a developer who is not to the standard that you need.

We suggest that you think about the following things:

  1. Decide if you need an entry-level (junior), intermediate, or expert (senior) mobile developer. 
  2. Be realistic with your salary budget. You should look at what it would cost you to hire a mobile app developer in the United States, and then look to pay your Filipino Android developer between ⅕ and ⅓ of that salary.

The reason we encourage you to pay ⅕ to ⅓ is that it’s fair, and it will help you attract committed long-term staff. 

Remember that a decent middle-class lifestyle in the Philippines costs about ¼ to ⅓ of what it would cost in the USA. 

Remember, when deciding on what salary to pay, take into account that your Filipino android developer still needs to make car payments, pay a mortgage, hospital bills, internet, electricity, and all of the other bills that people pay. 

Save big, but don’t go cheap. That is the key to success when hiring dedicated mobile app developers in the Philippines.

You can hire part-time or full-time mobile developers in the Philippines on VirtualStaff.ph. You create a free employer account, post a job, and directly choose from the best applicants. 

You decide how much you want to pay your android developer per hour. You decide the work schedule. You directly communicate, interview, and choose the applicant that you want to hire.

The key to choosing the right app developer or mobile programmer is to first decide what type of experience and skill level that you need the person to have.

Do you need an entry-level or junior developer that you plan to nurture and grow with your development team? 

Or do you instead need a senior (expert) mobile app developer that can immediately begin working with your team to create products?

The decision of who you choose is always your decision. VirtualStaff.ph makes it easy for you by providing you with all of the options that you need.
