How to choose good engineers.

posted in: Articles | 0

Publish and promote the job

First of all I try to find as many talented people as possible and thus publish the job on a number of sites. Considering that most engineers already have a job you need a little luck to run into someone that is currently available or will be soon.
When I ask the really good candidates why they’d consider switching job the most common reason is: the startup I work for ran out of money.

To maximise visibility I post our jobs on (free), Stack Overflow (paid) and our own website. In the past I have tried a number of free and paid services and this is what came out on top.

Reach out to interesting candidates

In addition to incoming applications I try to reach out to engineers in startups or environments in my network.
