Top tier software engineers tend to have steady jobs which makes them hard to recruit. How passive are they? According to Stack Overflow 2016 Developer Landscape, 97.5% of all software engineers are currently employed, but only 33.04% of them are in a job they love.

In this post we explain how to source developers from Stack Overflow and how to use the data available on the platform in the recruitment process.

Don’t be put off by buzzwords and tech jargon. Learn what a “front-end”, a “back-end”, and a “full-stack” developer does and give yourself the confidence to approach them with firm knowledge and a better understanding of their roles.

If there was ever an image summing up the developer recruitment pattern, it’s the one used by Isaac Lyman in his Medium post “How to recruit a developer”:
Unless you are one of the lucky companies offering “showstopper” jobs, it’s very rarely that top tech talent comes knocking on your door. Good developers are quickly snapped up because as passive candidates they get subsequent offers. They are almost never on the market because they don’t need to be shopping for jobs. Read More

When I first founded Devskiller four years ago, my team’s goal was to help companies find great programmers.
