  • Interview: 'The tech recruitment industry in Ireland is broken' - Digital Times | Digital Times
    salespeople Unfortunately this trend has now become an epidemic in the industry What developer roles are most in demand in the area you specialise in Full stack software engineers web and mobile developers What developer tech skills are most in demand or other skills as the case may be Java Python are the two most in demand languages used by major tech companies in Ireland After these two you have C Ruby Javascript The increase popularity of mobile development has created a greater demand for Objective C skills Of all of these demand is rising most for Javascript and Ruby The functionality of both of these has been helped by the introduction of Node JS Rails respectively Is there a lack of quality candidates as we are led to believe Yes Do you recruit from other countries and if so what are the benefits and pitfalls of this I do The pitfalls outweigh the benefits on this one The only major benefit is the overall quality of the work that is done abroad compared to our own programmers You therefore on paper have more choice when approaching programmers that live abroad The major pitfalls include a longer recruitment process greater documentation like visas and the trying to bridge the culture gap so that the new hire doesn t become for want of a better word home sick and leave his or her new employer What do employers want from you as a recruiter quality candidates sure but what else Honesty They want it and I demand it It doesn t matter what your job title is how much your company is worth how cool your offices are I have to meet you to trust you Without trust you have nothing Where do you see the developer recruitment space in Ireland developing Are platforms trends like LinkedIn and jobfairy helpful or a hindrance to what you do This is my favourite question These platforms can either be great tools to help you in your craft or they can be a used as a crutch to disguise your lack of skill and knowledge as a recruiter The recruiters that will be the most successful in developing their careers are the ones that are digital natives exceptional at understanding people and networking within their community For example I love Twitter It s brilliant for branding and provides an exceptional platform for making the initial contact with prospects Once a Twitter conversation starts it should be superseded by picking up the phone or meeting face to face I only do business with people I ve met there is no retweet or like button that will substitute that What are salary expectations like now among developer candidates Do they match what employers want to pay No they don t match Good developers go to meet ups read tech blogs and therefore know their worth It s human nature that if you know you re in demand your ego inflates ever so slightly and so does
