Lean on RFPs to make hiring an Android Developer a simpler and more effective process. Answer questions immediately in the RFP. Use it to screen unqualified prospects. When making your decision, streamline things with a scoring rubric. You can also use a proposal as the basis for the eventual contract.
First, go into the overall requirements of the position. Second, address the required skills of the Android Developer. Third, discuss the company and its culture to assess whether this is a good fit. Take care of any additional questions at the end.
