Finding the right talent in this competitive job landscape is tough enough, but it’s far worse when you’re a technology startup founder without a technology background – how do you know who has the right skills and the right mindset that will help take your startup to the next level?

With the unemployment rates for professional services logging in at an all-time low since 2007, demand for IT professionals is at an all-time high.  To put together the right team with the in-demand skillsets needed there are a few things that will help position your organization to snag the best candidates. Top tips include:

  • Consulting with IT industry experts
  • Researching job descriptions
  • Asking your own network for referrals
  • Visiting top colleges and well-known regional hackathons
  • Working with an IT staffing agency

Here’s an infographic from the folks at Modis that looks at the process of finding and hiring the right candidates to fit your team. And if you like what you see, you may also want to check out the Modis 2016 Salary Guide, which features the most accurate salary numbers and job descriptions for tech.
