How do you know if you’ve found the right talent for your software development team? Even seasoned Software Development Managers understand there are challenges to effectively evaluating a developer’s skill set. To make the hiring process fast and effective, we’ve put together a few tips such as using coding challenges and soft skill assessments to successfully screen software developer candidates for your organization’s needs.
To be efficient when hiring, you first need to have a clear understanding of the type of software developer candidates needed for the project. Here are a few questions to ask yourself about the role:
- Will the developer be working on a web or desktop application?
- Will the developer be working on new development projects or system enhancements? (SDLC)
- What does the technology stack include?
- Will the project utilize specific development methodologies?
- Are there design or architecture responsibilities?
- Is the project team distributed?
- Is domain knowledge required?
Now that you have a full understanding of the need, it is time to start the recruiting and hiring process. If you don’t have the time and resources you need to qualify your software developer candidates in person, how do you evaluate their personality and technical skill sets?
