For cross-platform app development, there is a lot of requirement for React Native and Flutter developers. Both React Native and Flutter allow cross-platform mobile app development, i.e., one codebase can be used to develop and run apps on Android and iOS. This is huge cost saver, particularly for startups. Similarly, experience with Java and Kotlin for Android, and Objective C for iOS is also very useful.
Infrastructure and APIs
Most companies run their infrastructure in the cloud these days, so knowledge of a cloud provider, e.g., AWS, Azure or GCP is great. Similarly, experience with GraphQL, Kubernetes, Terraform and CI/CD pipelines is very valuable.
Experience with at least one relational or NoSQL database is essential. The most popular relational databases are PostgeSQL and MySQL, whereas MongoDB, CouchDB, Cassandra and DynamoDB are well-known NoSQL databases.
In addition to the above, other skills such as experience with git, Test Driven Development, Pair Programming and Agile software practices are also important requirements for jobs.
In the future, we will post important skills for other roles in Germany.📬 Subscribe to our newsletter to stay up-to-date! 👇
