Learn how the best teams hire software engineers and fill other technical roles. Ask your employer if you can expense this book.
The Holloway Guide to Technical Recruiting and Hiring is a practical, expert-reviewed Guide to growing software engineering teams effectively, written by and for hiring managers, recruiters, interviewers, and candidates. We wrote this book to address the following problems:
- Hiring is rated as one of the biggest obstacles to growth by most CEOs.
- Hiring managers, recruiters, and interviewers all wrestle with how to source candidates, interview fairly and effectively, and ultimately motivate the right candidates to accept offers.
- The process is costly and frustrating, and often stressful or unfair to candidates.
Anyone who cares about building effective software teams will benefit from the experiences and knowledge in this book. Inside, you’ll find know-how from some of the most insightful and experienced leaders and practitioners—senior engineers, recruiters, entrepreneurs, and hiring managers—who’ve built teams from early-stage startups to thousand-person engineering organizations.
The lead author of this Guide, Ozzie Osman, previously led product engineering at Quora and teams at Google, and built (and sold) his own startup. Additional contributors include Aditya Agarwal, former CTO of Dropbox; Jennifer Kim, former head of diversity at Lever; veteran recruiters and startup founders Jose Guardado and Aline Lerner; and over a dozen others.
Recruiting and hiring can be done well, in a way that has a positive impact on companies, employees, and every candidate. With the right foundations and practice, teams and candidates can approach a stressful and difficult process with knowledge and confidence.
