Creating a good hiring process for developers is challenging. On the one hand, hiring is one of many things you're responsible for, so you want to be as efficient as possible. On the other, talented developers often don't do a great job of presenting their abilities when applying for a job, so if you filter too ruthlessly, it's easy to screen out people who would be a good fit.

At this event, we'll discuss our developer hiring processes, what is working, and what isn't. Come prepared to give a quick overview of how your process works, from the moment you receive an application, until a developer is hired. After all the participants describe their processes, we'll move into open discussion.

Who this event is for

Whatever your job title is, be it CTO, head of engineering, lead developer, or something else, you're the top technical person in your organization. While you once spent most of your time coding, these days you're consumed with things like hiring developers, communication with other stakeholders, and improving processes. Because this event is based around peer-to-peer knowledge sharing, we ask you only participate if you're in such a position. If you're unsure whether this event is for you, please get in touch with us first.


Paul McMahon is the representative director of Doorkeeper Inc. He also runs the Tokyo Dev Mailing List, that helps companies find talented international developers.
