How to Become a Freelance Android App Developer

Android application developers design apps for smartphones that are used by millions of people around the world. Whether these are video games, viral apps, social media apps, or software services for companies such as Uber and Lyft, there’s plenty of variety in projects for freelance Android mobile app developers on Upwork.

What does an Android application developer do?

Android developers work on developing apps for the Android operating system, which powers many smartphones, tablets, and embedded systems. There are a wide range of projects Android mobile app developers might work on, from building video games and social media platforms to providing software for drones and other smartphone-controlled hardware.

Android developers will work with others to design software solutions according to project requirements. This usually involves regularly writing and committing code to a version control repository, and it might also involve writing tests for the code you write.

What skills do I need to become an Android app developer?

Android developers do not need a formal degree, though a BS in computer science is helpful, as the Java programming language is commonly taught and used for Android app development. Alternatively, many online schools and websites offer courses for learning Android development and provide certificates upon completion. Whether a developer has a qualification from a university or an online course often does not matter as much as having a portfolio and code samples, such as contributions to open-source software. Demonstrating programming competency and the ability to work with specific tools or frameworks can help candidates stick out.

Common skills a freelance Android app developer should possess include:

  • A strong foundational knowledge of the Android operating system, Android Studio, APIs, and ecosystems
  • Strong Java development and software development skills
  • Familiarity with embedded systems hardware and architecture
  • Experience with mobile app development, specifically Android application development, in an integrated development environment
  • Knowledge with sub-programming languages such as Kotlin

What are the job responsibilities of an Android app developer?

Android app developers are responsible for developing software solutions that power apps running on smartphones, tablets, and other embedded systems. This often comes in the form of maintaining existing projects, though many start-ups are also commonly involved in Android app development.

Android app developers will be expected to work on their own or as part of a team to develop software solutions to a list of project requirements. This often involves working with popular Android libraries, frameworks, and related tools such as Unity, Ionic, and Selenium. Developers are expected to:

  • Write clean code for Android applications
  • Translate designs and wireframes into clean and efficient code
  • Work with a team to create and maintain Android apps inside Android Studio
  • Regularly write and commit software using Java or Kotlin, for example, as well as develop tests and take part in code reviews
  • Use bug trackers to fix bugs and refactor existing code
