AtomCTO: How do you hire tech resources?

May 9, 2020

Hiring tech teams can be an arduous task and the process can take up a lot of time and resources if you’re struggling with how to go about doing it. In this podcast, we go over some of our experiences with finding and hiring tech teams, and ways we have found to make it easier to find the right tech team for you.

We highlight the importance of having a strict hiring criteria and funnel process from the offset to make it as easy as possible throughout; you might have limited positions to fill and many capable people applying, so try to narrow down and filter out people at each stage based on the criteria you have created.

We also delve deeper into the value of interview discussions, the need for many companies to be practical with what they can afford whilst also analysing the potential value gained from investing in a slightly more expensive developer, and the flexibility that can be afforded to developers with the rise of virtual and remote working.
