Cause a Scene Conf London 2018

A lot of companies fall back to cookie cutter methods when trying to hire engineers that will enrich their teams. In a competitive market where everyone is trying to hire "the best", it helps to take a good look at what qualities you're actually looking for and how to search for people that fulfill them. By looking at your recruitment process as a user experience, you can avoid common pitfalls that put the right people off or attract people that could be toxic to your team dynamics. Many of us already have the tools and techniques to build a great product, such as ownership, stakeholder analysis, personas, field studies, usability testing, feedback, retrospectives, impact mapping and continuous improvement. I will show how you can apply these techniques and talk about my experience changing a recruitment process to fit the needs of the applicants and the teams receiving them.
