Through the course of growing PodcastMotor I’ve had the task of hiring about 15 remote team members, and for a lot of reasons it’s been a really challenging process. Finding qualified candidates, screening the obviously bad ones out, and then having a good process for testing/interviewing/vetting those final candidates has all been very manual and time intensive.
So I’m looking at approaching the problem of hiring, and specifically hiring remote employees, in a better way. I’m really interested to hear what other founders have seen through growing their team. Anything working particularly well? Any solutions out there make the process go a lot smoother? Job boards that give you great results?
I’ve just taken over workremotely.io and am working on a game plan for how to use the platform the previous owner created to make this whole process better for us all. Right now it’s a job board for hiring remote developers, designers, and other team members, but I think there’s a lot more to this problem that we can help with. Would love to hear your input.
