At the moment, when companies try to develop a product, they do it on both platforms - iOS and Android. This has significantly increased the demand for iOS developers compared to previous years. An iOS developer is responsible for developing applications for mobile devices running Apple's iOS operating system. Ideally, a good iOS developer should be proficient in one of the two programming languages for this platform: Objective-C and/or Swift.
The main focus will be on the development of iOS applications and their integration with server services.
The main thing is, of course, the development and creation of applications for the iOS platform, as well as ensuring application performance, quality and efficiency. They must have excellent communication skills to collaborate with the team, define and design new features, be able to identify and fix bottlenecks and fix bugs in time, as well as help with code maintenance, organization and automation.
Such a specialist is expected to have the knowledge of Objective-C or Swift (depending on the project requirements), as well as experience with iOS frameworks, such as Core Data, Core Animation, etc. An iOS developer must also know the Apple Development Guidelines, as well as have skills working with the Apple Store.
They also need to have experience with offline storage, streaming, and performance tuning, be familiar with RESTful API to connect iOS apps to back-end services, and possess knowledge of other web technologies and UI/UX standards to fully understand the users' needs. Knowledge of low-level C-based libraries is preferred. Experience with the API cloud messaging and push notifications, as well as with continuous integration, will be a plus.
Ultimately, it all depends on the project, we have listed only the most common requirements.
The average salary of an iOS developer in Belarus ranges from $800 to $7000. But one should understand that the figure will depend on the experience and skills of the developer. In our experience, there were also cases when the client was ready to agree on the salary suggested by the candidate, if, of course, the latter was up to par.
The average salary of an iOS developer in Russia ranges from $1,000 to $5,000. But then again, it all depends on the experience and skill of the developer.
