Patrick McCuller, an experienced engineering and hiring manager, has made answering that question part of his life´s work, and the result is this book.

In the foreword to “How to Recruit and Hire Great Software Engineers: Building a Crack Development Team,” Will Iverson, CTO of the Dynacron Group, writes, “To succeed with software, you need a great team. Not just good–great.” Couldn´t be simpler than that. But it´s a tall order. Easy? No way. Until now. This book is a field guide and instruction manual for finding and hiring excellent engineers who fit the team, drive success, and provide companies with a competitive advantage. Focusing on proven methods, the book guides managers through creating and tailoring a hiring process specific to their needs. They´ll learn to establish, implement, evaluate, and fine-tune a successful hiring process from beginning to end.

“How to Recruit and Hire Great Software Engineers” will prove invaluable to new managers.
