Everything You Need to Know About Remote Hiring

Fun fact: most start-ups begin with $10,000 or less. 

With such a limited budget, hiring top talent can be tricky. The industry is booming and there is a high demand for tech solutions.

It’s especially hard to have any skin in the game when FANGAM constitutes more than 18% of the S&P 500.

To break through as a tech start-up, you need a rabbit's foot in the form of remote hiring.

The majority of companies have adopted teleworking, and tech start-ups are doing the same. Sixty-nine percent of tech start-ups begin as home businesses anyway.

Plus, there are plenty of benefits that your company can gain by offering work from home jobs, including:

Break geographical and schedule barriers 

Remote workers can be spread across the globe. And, when your company is distributed across different time zones, you don't have to wait for 9 a.m. or 5 p.m. to start talking to each other. This makes distributed teams especially effective for early-stage tech start-ups.

More savings

It can take six months to hire a single employee and at the cost of $4,425. Hiring remotely eliminates the cost of multiple on-premise interviews, outsourcing a hiring panel, and snacks/supplies on interview day. Offering remote jobs online also removes the need for physical office space.

Increased worker retention and loyalty

Remote hiring offers remote workers more flexibility and freedom, resulting in higher retention rates and loyalty. In fact, 95% of remote employees confirm that remote hiring does affect retention.

A wider and more diverse talent pool

Eliminating the need to hire only local candidates allows you to cast your hiring net into a bigger and more diverse talent pool. This has financial benefits, too.

Remote hiring process

Like Yoda's lightsaber, remote hiring can give tech start-ups the advantage they need to wage a talent acquisition war against industry giants.

Unfortunately, to ensure this top talent doesn’t escape their grasp, many companies end up making hasty one-day decisions that lead to the wrong hire.

Worse still, the companies you are competing against hold interview after interview (FANGAM holds 4 – 9 rounds of technical interviews) and still attract top talent.

So, it’s time to get on the remote hiring train.

Here’s the process:

Design a clear remote job description

Create your job post with a title, responsibilities, skills and qualifications, and your company's working standards so that qualified candidates matching the criteria will apply.

Advertise

Utilize the numerous online job boards ​​— favored by 60% of job seekers — and professional social networks. These will maximize your reach and widen your talent pool. 

Tip: Woven knows the best practices to get the most candidates to your posting. We’ll even do it for you.

Vet candidates

Sift and triage applicants using a project management software or recruitment software that gives you a bird's eye view of each application and stores the applicants' resume in a database. 

Hint: Plug and play Woven's software so you can keep your processes running smoothly. Whether it's advancing candidates natively in your ATS or getting hiring recommendations sent straight to Slack, we integrate seamlessly with top partners so you can get set up and hiring quickly. 

Administer a technical assessment

Woven’s assessment platform helps you hire high-performing engineers in four simple steps.

  1. Choose and send scenarios: We work with you to identify the right assessment scenarios based on your hiring needs
  2. Candidates take the assessment: The candidate completes the real-work scenarios in 90 minutes
  3. Assessments scored by real engineers: Our expert engineers score and rank candidates on coding, problem solving, communication and more
  4. Find and hire the right engineers: Receive email and Slack notifications with candidate’s results, including a detailed analysis of their test results

Best work from home jobs

Take a look around. Technology is everywhere.

All sectors of the economy have adopted digitization, automation, and cloud migration in pursuit of efficiency, client acquisition and retention, business scaling, enhanced productivity, and the $1 trillion in business value that cloud migration can unlock.

Welcome to the fourth industrial revolution.

Businesses across all industries are scrambling to get the best software developers to cater to their never-ending technology needs.

To stay ahead of your competitors or even come close to FANGAM, the answer remains: you need an effective software engineering team.

You also need to make sure you’re attracting quality candidates. Software engineering and development has become one of the most well-paid careers offering the best work-from-home jobs. And, there are more than 4.4 million developers in the U.S alone. 

Check out our list of Managing Remote Teams Best Practices to ensure you’re bringing in the right people.

Entry-level remote jobs

Every 10X problem-solver starts somewhere. 

Entry-level software engineers are mostly college graduates who have limited experience and handle entry-level work from home jobs. Surprisingly, engineers with less than five years' experience are in high demand.

Why?

Consider the Dreyfus Model of Skills Acquisition. Most entry-level software engineers are fresh out of college with no hands-on experience. They have to follow the rules and processes at the novice level.

In three years, those same engineers have gained enough experience to become advanced beginners. Now, they can see the bigger picture, are code-focused, and handle more complex tasks with limited impact. They still need rules, but more importantly, they are motivated, energetic, and eager to learn.

This type of employee is perfect for companies looking to fill entry-level work from home jobs that include IDE, API, frameworks, database development, some platforms and tools, and programming.

Plus, that motivation, thirst for learning, and flexibility pays off. Entry-level engineers earn an average of $71,780 annually.

Thanks to an increased demand for software solutions, this industry has witnessed an 18% growth rate in the last decade. The U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts a 22% growth rate in the next 10 years.

Legitimate work from home jobs hiring now

In the days of yore before the concept of telework, all a company needed to do was create a job post and advertise locally. Often, they’d come to the sad realization that there’s a shortage of qualified and talented candidates within their geographical area.

What’s that company to do?

Sometimes, they’d have to continue on with an unfilled position. This is the worst-case scenario because other engineers on the team have to take on additional responsibilities. Overworked and burnt-out engineers means poor results, decreased employee morale, and high employee turnover.

Luckily, times have changed.

We’ve created a new and improved way of hiring the most talented and qualified software engineers for your remote team. 

The majority of companies have adopted distributed work models, and software engineers are following suit. That's why you need to be among the businesses offering legitimate work-from-home jobs now hiring.

Woven is the only remote hiring platform that finds and vets the industry's top talent for you. When you work with us, you can expect:

  • Increased hiring efficiency
  • 80% decreased hiring time at a third of your hiring budget 
  • Work simulations that go beyond code
  • Candidate feedback and a positive candidate experience

So, if you are looking for engineers to handle your remote jobs online from home, you’re in the right place. Start a free trial with Woven today.
