Hiring kit: IoT developer
August 19, 2021
IoT (Internet of Things) is disrupting how most everything industrial works. To keep up, companies are going to have to find personnel skilled in programming sensors and other networked devices. This Hiring Kit, from TechRepublic Premium, includes a job description, sample interview questions, and a basic want ad to help you land the best IoT developers for your organization.
From the kit:
In many respects, the development and deployment of the Internet of Things (IoT) is the culmination of the information technology revolution that started with the first transistor. An integrated network of probes, sensors, and devices designed to exchange information with each other and then act on that information using artificial intelligence is going to change how just about everything works. This will be particularly true for manufacturing and industrial operations.
In an industrial environment, where every device interacts with every other device, data processing and software development are of paramount importance. Someone must write the code that determines what each device should measure, what each device should report, and what each device should do with the data it receives. It is a complex process requiring a skilled developer with extensive knowledge of not only the programming involved, but of the industrial processes as well.
It is important to remember that a successful candidate for IoT developer will not have years of experience developing IoT projects or applications—this is a new technology, after all. However, candidates should have extensive programming experience and demonstrable knowledge of the industry and/or manufacturing process associated with your organization.
