Cobi’s currently looking for a new developer to join our team. I’ve been looking around the net and see that there are a couple of job posts our there of companies looking for mobile developers. What I’ve noticed about job posts is that they are full of silly requests. Some that I’ve seen so far..
– 5 years iPhone development experience (the iPhone sdk is only about 2 or 3 years old)
– Mastery of iOS API’s (these api’s change all the time)
– Expertise in device partitioning and code signing (What’s device partitioning?)
– Navigation-based and Tab-bar application development (That’s what almost every iPhone application uses)
We’ve also received a couple of CV’s. I personally think you can tell a lot from a CV just by what people include and how they include it. What I don’t like to see is matric results and random technology people use. I’ve seen some people put “internet” as a skill. I also don’t care how well you can use Microsoft Word or Excel. Some skills that I also think are irrelevant are html, xml, or any other technologies that can be picked up in 5min.
Anyway, mobile software development is a very young field, and it’s almost impossible to find and experienced mobile software developer. We’re just looking for someone with the potential and that has the passion for creating mobile applications. If that’s you, please mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
