Are you a growing company? If you are struggling to grow, there could be many reasons including a soft market, product quality, or a lack of funds. Some are even struggling to grow due to a lack of talent. Is that you? Are you trying to find the right software engineers but don’t know where to look or how to afford the current going rate for good talent in the field? Maybe it is time for you to hire software engineers globally.
What to Look For When Hiring Remote Software Engineers
What should you be looking for when hiring a software engineer, especially a remote one? We have some answers for that. We’ve worked with hundreds of software engineers over the years, and we believe in the remote work model. Here is what you should be looking for.
- Great Communication—Communication is key for any remote employee. Everyone got a taste of that during the pandemic. Make sure that you have people who are going to communicate when they are behind, when they need support, and when they have accomplished tasks.
- Schedule—When hiring remote talent—especially global remote talent—you have to determine what schedules you are willing to work within and what your expectations are. A big draw for remote work is flexibility and it’s a good idea for you to accommodate that when possible, but still you should have your requirements established too.
- Remote Work Experience—This isn’t entirely necessary, but it is a big plus. With remote work experience, they’ll know how things like Zoom work, how to keep their calendars updated, and more. In truth, most software engineers are going to know this stuff without having remote work experience.
- Specific Skills—This one is a little vague but only because the title of software engineer is a little vague. You want to ensure that the person you are hiring has the skills that you need for your project. The key here is to ensure that you know what those skills are before you start the hiring process.
Where to Remote Hire Software Engineers
When you are looking to hire globally, suddenly the whole world opens up to you, and that can be freeing but also a little scary. After all, there are a lot of countries and regions you could be hiring in, but which one is going to be best for you?
At TRUSS, we think we have found the answer, and we believe it so much that we have built our company around it. That answer is Central Asia. The region is currently going through a talent surplus in tech, but even without that, the talent there is affordable, speaks and understands English with great proficiency, historically has low attrition, and they have the skills you are looking for in a software engineer.
