Hire developers

Why is it so hard to hire good developers? There are several reasons for this.

Demand for qualified developers is increasing at an exponential rate, while the number of developers available to handle this demand has only risen slightly.

A second aspect is that it’s hard to stand out from the competition, when you’re not Google, Apple or a similar enterprise with a strong company brand. It’s hard to compete for the top candidates. Developers have the luxury to choose the most appealing job/project, employer and employment package.

Recruiters are not always on the same page as hiring managers. In general both agree that quality of skills and fit to company culture are definitely important. However, recruiters are more focused on hiring targets, while hiring managers are more into finding the perfect fit. Even it that would take a bit longer.

In some cases, simply the hiring process takes too long. If you’d like to hire the best developer, you need to act quickly. Otherwise he/she’s off the market or into another project.

A last aspect to mention is the high costs to hire developers on the local market. A lot of companies can’t afford these rates and can’t attract qualified developers because of a below standard employment package.

Above mentioned reasons direct a lot of companies towards nearshore/offshore development. SHORE teams is specialised in setting up development teams on nearshore and/or offshore locations.

How to hire developers the good way?

How can you make sure that you’re getting the right candidates for the job?

  1. Before you start hiring programmers for your project, sit down and outline what it is that you need. That will help both yourself & the programmer to know what you’ll need from them.
  2. Write an effective job description so you attract the best people in the world for your project. Even if you hire developers at a partner such as SHORE teams, it would be really helpful if you’ve thought about the requirements per role.
  3. Do your best to structure your recruitment process so that you hire developers who will thrive in your company culture and teams and produce high quality work.
  4. Hire developers from an experienced software development company. Hiring from a development company will be less stressful for you because they have the resources you don’t. They are experienced in your required technology stack and have been in several similar projects.
