Android is calling

On more devices than any platform in history.

Stack Overflow's recent Developer Survey took the temperature of more than 22,000 devs across the globe. Not quite 10% of the respondents indicated that they work mostly in mobile platforms. The largest group of these devs—almost 45%—were Android engineers. The most exciting thing about these numbers is that they're just the tip of the iceberg.

Since Android commands more than 75% of the worldwide market share of mobile operating systems, and over a million new Android devices are activated every single day, the career prospects for Android engineers couldn't be brighter. Android developers have the ability to get their creations into the hands of the largest global audience of any platform, impacting education, medicine and more. There has never been a better time to be a maker.

There's a lot of overlap between the developer communities we serve, and many times the startups that have used us to identify great Rails and iOS developers have requested that we assist them in attracting skilled Android devs as well. Unfortunately, the process of finding a great job as an Android developer is still often fraught with nonsense. We're changing that.

While our dev team cranks away upstairs, we're busy connecting great startups with talented developers. We founded Mirror in 2006 to help Rails developers, because finding a great fit in a dev job was hard, but working with recruiters was harder. Android wasn't even released back then, but today it's democratizing technology across 190 countries. What are you building that will change the world? We'd love to hear all about it. And if you're thinking of a change, we'd be proud to help.

Connections Welcome

Our background in web and mobile development gives us uncommon insight into what goes into finding a great technical and cultural fit. That knowledge informs the matches we make, resulting in a quick natural affinity between the devs and startups we introduce.

Our Android team is dedicated to Android devs.

Naturally, I'm always happy to connect and talk about all things Android. Interested in the latest dev salaries in the South Bay? Ask! Have you recently launched a new app? I'd love to hear all about it.

Let's talk Android!

Recruiters tend to treat developers as a commodity; they're about packaging us for what best suits their ends rather than our needs. Brian shatters this mold. Not only is he well versed in the specifics of Rails that are important to both you and the companies looking for developers, but he's only after what suits everyone. When we first spoke, he asked me to give him a week, and before the week was out I was interviewing with half a dozen companies that met my exact requirements 1500 miles away from me. When the process came to fruition, it was a win/win for both myself and my current employer.'

I've worked with Mirror and Brian Mariani since 2007, I consider him an agent of grace and respectability - he has made a difference in my livelihood. I love Mirror for the courtesy and quality interactions that we've had - not to mention the smoothness and speed. I don't expect a guaranteed job with Mirror - but I know can rely on great service and an excellent round of opportunity.

My previous dealings with headhunters haven't been good. They're very pushy and don't care much about the candidates or even their clients. Just about all of them don't even bother reading your resume or they're illiterate. Having said that, I found someone who is just the opposite of other recruiters I've dealt with. Funny thing is, I wasn't even looking that aggressively. Brian Mariani of Mirror is a pleasant surprise in a field that is filled with scums. He actually read my resume, saw my websites, and took his time to discuss potential opportunities with both his clients and me. He also listened, a rare trait in modern day recruiters. I highly recommend Mirror if you're a Rubyhead/Railshead and want to venture out. You'll be pleasantly surprised. If you're interested in hiring a Rubyhead, contact Brian.

Mirror Placement helped me find an exciting job working with fun, smart people. Using other job sites was like trying to drink from a fire hose, but Mirror made the process easier by matching me with high-quality positions.

When people ask me about recruiters, Mirror Placement is the only one I'm happy to recommend. They actually understand technology, don't do the hard sell, and are in it for the long haul. A true cut above the rest.

Mirror helped me land a role at Pivotal in 2010, and I have since referred many of our growing startup clients to them. I wholeheartedly recommend them!
