How to Hire the Best PhoneGap Developer

Before you dive into hiring a PhoneGap Developer, you need to make sure you have a prior background not only of what a PhoneGap developer does but also everything about PhoneGap developer app.

So what is a PhoneGap Developer App?

A PhoneGap developer app is an open source cross platform application that runs on mobile and is used to view the different PhoneGap apps you are developing. How do you do that? You just need to connect your PhoneGap developer app to the current IP address from your {honeGap CLI or PhoneGap desktop app from your computer within the same network.

You will never go wrong with PhoneGap developer app because it has a pre-installed set of plugins that you can immediately use.

PhoneGap developer app s an open source cross platform that can run on several operating systems like Android, iOS and Windows Phone. For desktops, you can use PhoneGap Desktop App.

Various platforms are using PhoneGap build but unfortunately for Adobe, they discontinued using this.

Usually, the PhoneGap Developer app is used by beginners who are just getting started with PhoneGap build. It is an open source cross platform that allows a PhoneGap developer to create your own custom PhoneGap build. This is very useful when you want to add 3rd party plugins or to specific settings. For instance, you want to run a PhoneGap developer app on iOS and incorporate a 3rd party social sharing plugin. Through this app, you can do custom PhoneGap build of your choice depending on your needs.

PhoneGap Developer App is an open source cross platform available on your mobile device on multiple platforms so you can do your PhoneGap project without compiling or code-signing. It is available on the Android app store but unavailable on the iOS app store

Due to the costs of hiring mobile app developers, businesses prefer to hire a PhoneGap developer offshore instead. By hiring mobile app developers offshore, businesses find it easier to hire tech talents, cut costs, and expand their products or services. However, as with any partnership, finding the ideal outsourcing partner is important for a successful IT outsourcing experience.


To help firms hire skilled developers, Cloud Employee, a UK-managed IT outsourcing provider, offers companies a no-risk, convenient, and affordable outsourcing experience. With us, hiring an offshore PhoneGap developer is easier and more accessible through our cost-effective offshore rates.


If you want to know more about how much it would cost to hire offshore, here’s an insightful guide about offshore developer rates from popular outsourcing locations.


What interview techniques should you use to hire the best PhoneGap developer?

The next step to hiring a PhoneGap developer is to properly evaluate their technical capabilities. To effectively hire the best PhoneGap developer among the rest, here are two interview techniques that you can try.


Ask candidates to explain a recent project they finished

Have PhoneGap candidates to describe or illustrate how they did their most recent application or project. By doing this, recruiters can determine these two things:

First, recruiters will be able to know a candidate’s level of knowledge and experience by how he or she will discuss the project. Can the PhoneGap developer discuss the project in details? Does he or she know the processes or different stages during the application’s development? This will also give you an insight into how involved a candidate was in this project.


And second, recruiters will be able to check if a PhoneGap developer has good communication skills. As with any developer, communication skills are important especially when working with a team. Check whether the candidate is able to clearly explain technical ideas as if a non-IT person would understand it. Communication skills should also be highlighted especially if you are looking to hire a senior PhoneGap developer who will be leading a team.


Conduct technical exams

Surprisingly, not a lot of companies run technical tests when hiring a PhoneGap developer. Without technical exams, companies can not thoroughly evaluate a candidate’s capabilities.


Companies may opt to use online coding tests for free or for a price or even create their own technical tests aligned with their tech requirements. When you want to hire the best PhoneGap developer, look for someone who is not only adept in PhoneGap development but also one who has strong critical thinking skills.


If conducting a test isn’t possible, require candidates to write 2-3 sample codes (consists of 5-10 lines of code) instead. This would already be ideal in providing insight into a PhoneGap developer’s expertise in the platform as well as their thinking abilities.

What is the dedicated hiring model?

A popular outsourcing model, the dedicated hiring model differs from other outsourcing models as it allows companies to have full control over all aspects, from the hiring process to team management. Due to its flexibility, the model helps minimise miscommunication and other remote work issues that are commonly experienced in offshore hiring.


Its practicality and flexibility make it an ideal outsourcing model especially for businesses that prefer direct communication and collaboration with an offshore developer or team. Aside from this, one of its main benefits is its ability to conveniently help in-house teams to add or reduce offshore team members at any time during the project’s development according to their project needs.



  • Suitable for short-term projects with defined requirements
  • Ideal for long-term projects with no clear length and information
  • Costs can still be estimated even without clear details
  • Ideal for businesses that would like to work with their offshore developer or team without a middleman.
  • A transparent method of keeping track of the project and the developer’s progress as well as the mobile app’s quality
  • The offshore PhoneGap developer or team effectively becomes an extension of your in-house team as they will also learn and adapt your company or team’s vision and work standards.
  • The offshore PhoneGap developer or development team solely works for you and your company.


The model is highly ideal for teams or businesses that:

  • Opt to directly communicate with their offshore PhoneGap developer
  • Would like to have an affordable alternative for hiring developers
  • Prefer to hire more developers at any point during the project


Integrating the dedicated hiring model’s structure and Cloud Employee’s nearly 20 years of industry knowledge in IT outsourcing, our dedicated team offers startups and large firms around the world an effective, low-risk, and affordable solution to hiring developers.
