What does a Mobile Engineer do?
Mobile engineers design, develop, and implement software programs for smartphones and other mobile devices. They often specialize in a certain type of operating system, such as Android or iOS. They use data-driven insights to guide development of programs and apps that fill a user need. They create specifications and detailed plans, write code, oversee testing and debugging, and play an active role in the rollout and launch. They commonly work in close collaboration with other engineers, designers, R&D, analysts, and other teams and stakeholders.
Mobile engineers typically have at least a bachelor’s degree in an engineering or computer science field. They generally have a background in engineering or computer programming. Proficiency with common programming languages is required, and experience with automated testing tools on a mobile platform is helpful.
