Hiring blockchain developers is time-consuming and costly, so it is crucial to get it right the first time.
I have spoken with many Founders that have spent thousands of dollars on tools like Indeed, ZipRecruiter, Monster, and CareerBuilder, only to find out the people they need are not on those platforms. Job boards, in general, are best for non-technical roles. Once you add niche blockchain skills to the mix your chances of success are slim. These choices will have you sifting through hundreds of unqualified resumes.
Often time. the profiles that are a fit turn out to be fake.
You will call the phone number on the resume, and the person on the line will be a consulting firm with "talent available."
Aside from the lack of qualified applicants on these platforms, you can easily spend hundreds of hours sifting through resumes instead of managing your current team and building your product.
For the best results, you should outsource hiring to an agency that specializes in your niche area from the start.
While using a specialized firm may seem significantly more expensive, it isn't once you add up the opportunity cost of saving you and your team's time.
Recruiting firms have databases of qualified candidates and can typically deliver qualified candidates in 72 hours. What would the change in delivery time be if you could hire a senior engineer two months quicker than if you tried on your own?
Another consideration is most recruiting agencies offer a 90-day guarantee, so if anything goes wrong you can get a replacement at no cost. There is no cost to review and interview candidates from a firm. It's in your best interest to see who the agency can get through the door.
Like my dad always said, "do it right the first time, or don't do it at all."
