A Better Way To Hire Technical Talent
Hiring the right person is about way more than languages or frameworks, years of experience, or "worked at [company]."
At the end of the day, hiring is about people, not just skills - but folks in the hiring seat have historically been forced to make big leaps of faith that the person on the resumé will be a good fit for the team.
For technical hiring, it's usually a risk equation that tries to reconcile quality (good candidate vs. excellent) and time (action now vs. keep looking).
But it's risky to rush your process. It's risky to only look for talent in your city or region. It's risky to hire junior devs with limited experience. Even worse to hire seniors who may or may not be great communicators or mentors. And time is ticking.
Any way you slice it there's risk, and it's expensive to get it wrong.
That's the problem we set out solve. Or, at the very least, make a big dent in it.
