It’s a pretty good time to be a developer. With an average salary of more than $90,000 and an unemployment rate under 5%, most professional programmers don’t have a very difficult time finding a job—if they even need to look for one at all.
Our CEO, Joel Spolsky, literally wrote the book on how to attract, review, interview, and hire the best technical talent for your organization. Through our hiring platform, Careers 2.0, we’ve seen the best and worst of employer job listings, recruitment strategies, and passive candidate outreach. Needless to say, we know it takes a lot more than money to convince a great developer to join your team.
Now, focused on a mission to change the face of technical hiring forever, we’re committed to sharing what we know about how to build an “A” team in such a competitive environment. With our new employer resource center, you’ll find best practices, recruitment news and trends, case studies and product guides to help you with your hiring process at your organization. We’ll be updating the content regularly, so we hope you’ll check back regularly. And if there's a topic you'd like to see us cover, leave a note in the comments below, and we'll try our best to answer it for you!
