Establish who you want to hire

The first step in hiring anyone is to know exactly what role you want them to fill and what tasks they will need to perform. Whoever you hire will need to adapt to this workload and fit in with the principles of your company but remember that you may need to distinguish between which skills are absolutely needed and which ones you can get rid of if you find the right candidate who doesn’t have said skill.

When looking for a software developer you need to hire according to the work you need to be done. Are you looking for someone who works Frontend or backend? You’ll need to establish the details on what tech skills you want them to have, their soft skills, culture fit, and the amount of experience they will need.

Once you have all this down you’re ready to move on to the next step.

Distinguish them from the crowd

Once you’re ready to start interviewing candidates you’ll need to prepare a set of questions and processes that will help you determine if the talent will be a good fit for your company.

This can be done by asking the candidate to do a mock technical test that will allow you to evaluate their skill levels and validate their experience.

To make sure they are a cultural fit and fit in with the team, you could always ask members of your team to sit down in the interview and become part of the conversation. This will allow your team’s opinion to be heard and they will have a say on if they will connect with the candidate or not.

Build a process

A good way to help you process your candidates would be to build a hiring funnel. This can be a tool to set up the steps needed to hire the right candidate from the crowd.

This can be done by:

  • Screening your candidates: Checking Job ads, reaching out via social media or LinkedIn, brand awareness, and marketing.
  • Test task: You can send the candidate a small task or app to do to prove they have the experience needed.
  • Technical test: This can be a JavaScript quiz with open questions
  • Giving specific feedback
  • Interview
  • Determine if Hired or not hired.
  • Overcome obstacles

Having a clear outline of what you are looking for in a candidate will help you to overcome any obstacles when it comes to hiring someone for JavaScript, as the market is currently very saturated. Almost anyone can learn JavaScript nowadays and that can be both a blessing and a curse.

While there are many candidates you will need to find someone who is ambitious, passionate, and creative.

Another downfall of JavaScript’s popularity is the fact that a lot of companies are using it which means they are hiring for it too which can take prospective candidates off the list if you are not fast enough. To make sure you stay ahead of the competition you need to make sure you have a process, engagement, and persistence. A carefully thought out process with thoughtful questions and activities is more likely to attract the candidate to you.

Reassess your hiring options

If you are still having trouble with the hiring process then you should look a changing up your strategy. Instead of hiring someone, look into team augmentation or possibly hiring a freelancer to do the work for you.
