For any growing business, one of the hardest things is building a solid tech team that consists of the right people. You may think you have a great team at the moment but it only takes a few unsuitable hires or the development of few features which aren’t quite right to make things go south. Today, we have compiled for you some excellent tips on how to build a brilliant tech team for your business; one that will propel your company’s growth in the coming years.
Hire a CTO

If you’re building a tech business, it’s important to have a tech culture from the start.
One of the best decisions is to include engineers in decisions about what to build and how to build it from the start.
Understanding their needs and requirements will also help in establishing a well-rounded team.
Invest in Hiring Experienced Tech Leads
Hiring talent for a growing tech team is not easy, and the talent you do find needs to be motivated to stay, thrive and be promoted within the firm. If you hire good technical leaders, you will feel comfortable and confident giving autonomy.

TH.0 is organizing RecruitaTH.0n, a virtual recruitment hackathon in January. Our hackathons deliver greater insights to companies that are recruiting regarding the behavioral performance, cultural fitness, and practical skills of candidates in real-time, something that would not be possible in a traditional interview setting.
Furthermore, the hackathon setup enables organisations to set certain expectations for the talent being examined while ascertaining whether their skills align with the job roles available by setting up their own challenges at the event.
