Don’t rush into hiring programmers for a startup before you learn how exactly the process is different from regular IT recruitment

At first glance, hiring software developers for a tech startup seems to be in no way different from hiring these experts for any other business. You largely need technical experts, whose qualifications are up to par for the technical task at hand. You just need to find these experts someplace — and let’s get rolling!

Those who fall for this oversimplified approach are often in for budget overruns, missed deadlines, and just another iteration of the hiring hassle they’ve been so happy to get shut of yet not so long ago. This happens because fledgling hi-tech businesses are vastly different from their more established peers: their well-tuned business processes are still forthcoming. Their budgets are frequently not so lush, as those of well-established market players. Their key business actors aren’t always as cognizant of the business niches they are now trying to establish themselves in.

These and other differences create a host of factors and demands that clearly define not only the professional traits and qualifications of startup app developers required for their job to be adequately done, but also the very team creation process and the shape of the development team that would truly be capable of handling the job under different circumstances.

The latter is precisely why we’ll devote this article to two topics at once and not just the one it uses for a title: how to hire developers for a startup and how to go about hiring the right combination of developers under some of the more widespread startup scenarios. We’ll also touch upon who precisely one should look for and where you can find worthy startup app developers more easily, quickly, and affordably.
