Hello Manager tools community! I need help with a hiring question.
I need to rump up a team for a new SW development project and I am searching for developers. Many have applied, and I have conducted first interviews, but after all MT podcasts on hiring, interviews and so on, my bar got pretty high. I am afraid it is now too high, as I am not accepting anyone. The problem is I am in risk of loosing this project as I can't staff it. Internal movements are also not possible and I have searched for external companies, but it will also take time until finding a company and having a contract with them.
To give more input, this is happening in a (not too large) city in Germany and not on silicon valley, so there is not a huge amount of software developers available.
The question that is taking my sleep away is, should I lower the bar and hire someone at least to get the project started?
Thanks for the help!
