Lots of these depend on where the candidate lives and where the company operates. I usually look at a specialized job board for developers which is popular in my country. Sometimes I find interesting job postings on Twitter as well. Nothing can beat personal recommendation from a friend though - HR people often hide unpleasant details about working at the company or simply aren't aware of the problems that the development team is struggling with.

About salary ranges - again that really depends on where the candidate lives - some people might be top 1% earners in their country with a salary that is considered really low for US or Canada. However, some companies can't hire people abroad due to legal obstructions or time zone differences. It's best to open a job board in your country and look at similar job offerings with declared salaries.
