And when it comes time to hire engineering talent, that challenge often turns into a full-on crisis. The stakes are incredibly high: the timeline around recruiting and hiring is long; the cost of hiring talent is high; and the time that it requires out of your core team to help hire the right engineer can quickly become onerous.

Of course, it’s not enough to fill seats with warm bodies who know Javascript — the hiring process impacts the development of a company’s growth, potential, and culture like no other decision you will make.
