re: The Elusive Senior Software Developer VIEW POST

re: As a senior software engineer, I would read a recruiter email if it didn't look like a form letter that came from somebody that has not even bother...

Yeah, sometimes recruiters reach out with some weird jobs (offering me a position as a warehouse supervisor) because somewhere I'd done inventory control software, lol.

We're considering reaching out without a particular position. The truth is that the place I work at will generally find a place within the organization for great person who is in the ballpark of our technologies. Candidly,even if the person is not looking now but might be doing so in a year or two, we'd like to chat with them and see whether to tell them to call us in a year, or not.

We're thinking about:

  • figuring out who these elusive people are (emails etc.)
  • how best to reach out via email
