How do you hire great engineers in this competitive market?
1. I look for people who have special skills (Lisp, F#, Popcorn, etc.) which have not yet become mainstream. That shows a person is passionate about what he does and experiments with new technologies. The best way to find people is through your network on LinkedIn or direct references.
2. Good people don't want to just be paid well. They also work on an innovative product, learn along the way, and see their work used by millions of users.
