Analyze your business priorities and needs
Identify the level of expertise you need
Isolate the necessary skillset for your project
Set short and long-term goals and expectations
Write a clear and concise job description to attract the right candidate
Ask for references and check the previous work experience
The best way to identify the right level of expertise is to look at skills, mindset, and previous work. In fact, the expertise doesn’t depend only on the years of work experience. It also depends on the type of qualifications and previous projects your developer worked on.
Here is what to keep in mind to hire the right level of expertise for your company:
Firstly, you need to analyze your business priorities and needs. After that, you can identify the level of expertise you need. As we mentioned earlier, to support an existing dev team, a junior developer is the best choice. While to re-build the whole architecture of a large-scale website, you will need a lead and a senior developer. Once you have isolated the necessary skillset for your project, the second step is setting short and long-term goals and expectations. If you want to attract the right candidates, it’s necessary to be precise on what you expect from the new hire and how you want to use their skills for your project.
So, the next step is to write a clear and concise job description to avoid candidates that are just looking for a job. With clear expectation on the project and detailed description of your company culture, you increase your chances of attracting passionate candidates that are willing to grow with your team, rather than getting any job happens to them. Finally, don’t forget to ask for references and check their previous work experience.
