What I learned from hiring over 70 technologists and conducting more than 300 interviews

I strongly believe hiring is one of the most important things a manager will do. As the company evolves, the team is the essence of what the company becomes, not the other way around. Companies are created by the people that it hires, and not from the business plan. However…
