How to Hire Great Developers

While the overall unemployment rate is fairly high, unemployment for developers continues to be very low, and enterprise application development teams are finding it difficult to hire really good employees. “At last count, there are nearly five job openings for every developer,” explained Bethany Marzewski of Stack Overflow Careers 2.0. “When developers have their pick of four other job offers, savvy companies have recognized that recruiting a quality candidate means doing more than posting on job boards.

  6. It’s the work, stupid.
  7. Open source tips the balance.
