How is a Mobile Engineer different from other types of engineers?
Mobile Engineers are responsible for developing mobile applications and mobile web products. Their area of expertise or interest centers around creating new features, understanding their user base, and debugging potential issues that come with moving from a desktop to a mobile product.
What are some of the main responsibilities of a Mobile Engineer?
- Maintaining a secure environment: It’s important for a Mobile Engineer to have experience with user security, and an understanding of best security practices. For example – a Mobile Engineer may need to build additional layers of protection for users in an application, like if a password is forgotten, or develop infrastructure that decreases the odds of a hack (or makes a hack unsuccessful).
- Experience developing apps and launching them on the App store: Does your Mobile Engineering candidate have experience developing apps and launching them? Have they successfully created apps that meet the specifications of the app store?
- Helping companies determine which features or products will perform the best on mobile: Are there certain features that will perform better on mobile than others? A Mobile Engineer may be responsible for helping companies decide what parts of their product may be better suited for mobile too.
- The ability to build in security measures: A Blockchain Engineer will also need to think through the different security measures that need to go into maintaining or building blockchain products. Site Reliability Engineers or DevOps Engineers can also be helpful in this process.
