Dedicated Mobile App Development Team Structure
With increasing complexity and development time, different people have to take on certain roles, even if they are not explicitly assigned. Thus, our standard mobile app development team includes:
The person in charge of the whole mobile app development team. Keeps track of deadlines for tasks. Responds quickly if quality problems arise. Motivates the team to work more efficiently. Together with the product owner, makes decisions when there are possible alternative ways of development.
A business analyst is a translator from the language of business to the language of mobile app developers and vice versa. Thanks to business analysts, the whole mobile app development team can focus on their functions instead of getting bogged down in negotiations, figuring out what the business really needed.
These are the people who determine how the application will look and behave. The mutual arrangement of elements, the scheme of moving around the screens, the animations are all thought out by the designer. If the application is large and complex, there may be more than one designer.
Mobile app developers
Actual people who come up with and implement the mobile app. They come up with the architecture of the application, write the code, etc. Without written and compiled code, there is no application. Mobile app developers are often the ones who decide how exactly this or that functionality will be implemented in the application.
These are the people who check whether the application works correctly. A tester can write a usability comment, but his primary task is to make sure that the application works according to the requirements and specifications. They can test applications either manually or with autotests.
