Android developers are expected to work with their own Application Programming Interface (API) or a third-party API. Usually, these APIs are based on JSON/REST, but XML/SOAP may be used as well. Additionally, the developer has to assess the application’s compatibility with various Android versions and devices.

 

You can check the following  skills while assessing an Android developer.

  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to define, design, and ship new features.
