Best practices for navigating hypergrowth hiring to build great software engineering organizations
Hypergrowth is a buzzy term these days. We’ll spare you the financial definition of “hypergrowth” and focus on what it means for engineering organizations. For most engineering orgs, hypergrowth hiring means they are growing their team by more than 50% per year, which is a tipping point in terms of interviewing capacity.
This is obviously an exciting time to be part of a growing company, but it’s also a challenging situation to navigate for teams with aggressive hiring targets and even more aggressive product roadmaps. If not done correctly, the negative effects of poor hiring practices can have a long-lasting impact on your team.
Engineering and Recruiting Operations
This is a critical time for your entire organization. Keeping up momentum and upwards trajectory by growing in a consistent and scalable way will not only ensure you’re attracting the best talent but also will help retain your great existing engineers by not burying them in a frustrating interview process.
