Hire me to help you hire

Do you have a growing engineering organization that needs help hiring effectively? I can help! I have consulting availability over the next few months to help organizations hire better.

I can design your hiring process, write interview questions, teach staff how to interview successfully, or even run your hiring rounds. Read on more for details, or if you’re interested, hit me up: [email protected].

What I can do for you

In a nutshell: I will help you hire more effectively. If you’re having issues at any step of your engineering hiring processes, chances are I can help you improve. Some of the things I can do for you:

  • Teach staff how to interview effectively.
  • Develop interview questions around both technical and social skills.
  • Develop technical screening exercises that are fair and effective.
  • Coach engineering leaders as they run hiring processes.
  • Design a scalable, repeatable hiring process, or review your existing process.
  • Take the lead on running a hiring round or two.
  • Build hiring processes that reduce bias and help improve the diversity of your hiring pipeline.

One thing I can’t do is recruit candidates – I’m not a recruiter. I can, however, help you design recruiting strategies, and work closely with your recruiters.

I expect most of these things would be medium-term, part-time consulting engagements– 1-3 months – but I’m open to other possibilities.

My bonafides
