    Top 20 Mobile Search Requests by Hiring Managers

    Coke vs. Pepsi. Beatles vs. Rolling Stones. iPhone vs. Android. For mobile enthusiasts and developers, the debate on favorite platforms is one for the ages. But for companies recruiting tech professionals with mobile experience, it seems there’s no contest: They just want mobile talent.

    For recruiters and hiring managers, their resume search behavior looks more like a train of thought than a defined preference. For example, “Mobile and native and (iOS or iPhone or Android or Symbian) and (Developer or programmer or analyst or “Software engineer”)” is an actual search string, as is “(iOS or Android or Blackberry) and app* and (design* or develop*) and (UX or UI).”

    Moving beyond the platforms, mobile mainstays in the top 20 hiring manager requests include: java, SDK and Objective-C, and HTML5. Javascript and popular library, JQuery are tied together frequently in hiring managers’ wish lists, while Informix and .NET may be a testament to companies trying to mobilize their current infrastructures.

    This slideshow features the top 20 mobile search terms that hiring managers are requesting on Dice.com, as well as some of the opportunities available in those areas. You’ll see the mobile jobs are not limited to Silicon Valley. In fact, there are opportunities in New York, Boston, Chicago, D.C., Pittsburgh, Austin, Seattle, Salt Lake City and Wilmington, Delaware, etc.
