Nov 3 - Agile Recruiting with Sheldon Fuchs and Ravdeep Sekhon

Everything a dev team does can use Agile Principles, including recruiting. Solium has gone from once hiring 6 people in 2 years to hiring over 20 this year alone. This talk is about how Solium has iterated the process during the last 18 months and got rid of some sacred recruiting cows (hint: "culture fit" means nothing!)

Come join us to hear our story, learn from our mistakes and get a glance at where we are headed!
