Why Software Development Hiring Is Broken

  • William Gant


Hiring in software development is horribly, perhaps irretrievably, broken. As both a software development manager and a software developer, I’ve seen the process stop good developers from getting jobs while incompetent numbskulls who shouldn’t be anywhere near production get hired over and over again. The latter do so only to get fired a few months later when they can’t deliver results. Usually the rest of us get to clean up their results for months or years after they are gone. It’s really dumb that most places use a broken process, but that’s the reality we have to deal with.
