Finding a strong talent on the market is sometimes breaking the tie. Today, when RN is used widely on many platforms, including VR headsets, smartphones and home appliances under own smart home, it is hard and tricky to find someone good, especially in a short period of time.
A standard hiring process at OpenGeeksLab entails a CV review, a video or phone interview resulting in shortlisting the candidates for an on-site interview. Remember that Talent Recruiting also depends on the specific project goals & customer requests.
What is React Native? RN is a framework for building mobile apps under React, designed by Facebook. React deals with real native components. This technology is used to build new apps from scratch as well as to update existing native mobile apps without the necessity to resubmit an application.
