Finding Developers

By |September 12th, 2016|Blog|Comments Off on Finding Developers

I spend a lot of time looking at postings for developers, websites and designers, and the conclusion I’ve reached is that most people have no idea what they’re doing. That’s not entirely surprising – if they did, they probably wouldn’t be looking so hard for a developer. That’s said, compared to other hiring […]
