About the Book
When you're a software engineer no one ever talks to you about how to recruit, interview and ultimately hire other software engineers. And yet every technical organization lives or dies by its ability to acquire top talent. They can't do it without the input of experts like you. Marianne Bellotti ended up in this world completely by accident. Five years later she has built successful hiring pipelines in some of the most technically backwards and bureaucratic environments in the world. Hiring Engineers is her tour of the hiring process from the perspective of the software engineer. What do you need to know? How do you get good at interviewing? How do you write questions that everyone can use? Hiring may never be your passion, but Hiring Engineers can teach you how to thrive while doing it.
