Hiring Software Developers via Outsourcing and Utilizing an ATS

One would think that hiring a software developer for your growing tech company wouldn’t be terribly difficult. Everything is evolving and more and more technical workers are graduating or moving on from old jobs and are anxiously searching for the next great company to work for… right? Once you post the job opening however, the applications won’t necessarily pour in. What gives? Much of this has to do with young software developers wanting to work for a company with a recognizable name, so that when they tell people what they do for a living everyone is impressed. No one knows your small tech company by name, so fewer young upstart software developers will be sending in their paperwork hoping to get hired.

The other problem is that even though there are tons of job openings in your company and in other smaller tech firms who desperately need software developers, the United States won’t have enough qualified young workers to fill all of those jobs. While a lot of people are studying engineering and computer science in college and graduating into the technology marketplace, it doesn’t even half way fill the demand for workers within the American technological industry.

So what’s a solution? Simple. Outsource. Find those incredibly skilled workers in countries from around the world who have an eager workforce who would love to work for an American technological company and even come to America to enjoy all this country has to offer. This can be done in a number of different ways. You can partner with an offshore outsource provider who will find workers and set up an office in that country for you to monitor from America. These offshore partners will know the workforce in these international locations better than you ever could and will help mange your development team in this new location. It will also mostly eliminate the frustration, cultural and geographical problems associated with recruiting the right talent for your company.

Doing this will also expand the reach of your company and may turn you on to other markets of opportunities for your business. If the partnership with offshore partners flourishes, you will undoubtedly be bringing people from their office to America and vice versa, allowing your previously small technology company to have an influence and operations in different parts of the world. This is a benefit you probably never planned on when you set out to hire qualified software developers but it is certainly one worth building upon as your company and work force continue to grow.

One other way to ensure you can discover and hire the top software developers is by using a cutting edge Applicant Tracking System.  An ‘ATS’ will enable you to utilize the power of social media, referrals programs, and beautiful careers sites to engage the brightest minds in software development.
