How to Drastically Reduce Engineering Time Spent on Recruiting

Today, an engineering team incurs, on average, 6 times the cost that recruiting does for each technical hire. This is because engineers’ work is frequently interrupted with interviews and candidate evaluations, which in turn hurts their productivity. But why does so much of the burden of hiring fall on engineers, and what can you do about it?

That’s the question we address in CodeSignal’s new guide to optimizing your technical hiring practices. This short guide will help you identify and measure how much time your engineers spend on technical recruiting, as well as how to drastically reduce engineering time spent on recruiting in 4 key areas: conducting technical interviews, creating new coding questions, managing leaked questions, and evaluating technical candidates.
