What is the best way to filter out the candidates even before the interview?

Hiring consumes a lot of time and money. It is the most difficult task in an organization. We are currently hiring for an android and an iOS developer for our startup.What according to you is the best way to filter out the candidates even before the interview, so only the filtered people come for the interview, thus reducing the effort.

Hey abhishekCongratulations that you have taken the road less travelled.My suggestion will be to take some online test using hacker-rank,or some other platform.They are also a lot already made tests i guess.This way you will know the ability of the candidates.you can also take psychometric tests of the individual if you want to know more about their thinking,principles etc.All the best brother.

Depends on the project, but if you plan to have the project create the majority of revenues for your organization, you are best off investing in a good hands-on experienced in-house person (a team would be better) who can, at the very least, create products specifications. Based on many years deep in the weeds of development, people who expect to build a cheap prototype with an external firm to test the product usually get burned. The reason is because product specifications documents change, sometimes drastically, during BETA testing, initial rollout, and marketing responses from the first sets of customers. Some of these bugs/new features could require a total rewrite, meaning starting again and building another prototype and adding more sunk costs into a project that may not prove to be sustainable in the long run. Having an in-house teams enables you to add incremental updates on a regular basis, but relying on an external company to code your mission critical project could be a very costly and time-consuming mistake.

I'd follow these simple stepsCheck out their current portfolio. Select the candidates you find promisingInvite them to their office and make them interested in joining you. Without this, the next steps won't work very well.Carve out a small 1 day project, with clear directions and desired output. Ideally ask them to complete the project in your office.After the project is done, spend 30 mins reviewing and discussing their work. If you're convinced, hire them. If you still have to see more, invite them for more projects but make sure to compensate them for their effort and time.Would love to know your thoughts on this and also different approaches, if you have any.

How do you judge cultural fit of potential hires?

Measuring the jobs skills is objective. What is unique to each company is the way they judge the cultural fit. How do you do this at your company and why? How have been the results?

Ask questions based on the company's core values. For example, in our value statement, we emphasize integrity. Our recruiters ask scenario-based questions based on these values, so one question might be, "A colleague approaches you and asks if you would share your login details so they can access your client's ATS. They are really pressuring you because they have not been able to find a candidate for their client. Sharing client logins is a fireable offense. What would you do?" They are scored based on how they handled a similar issue in the workplace (predicting future behavior), or what they would do in a hypothetical situation (not as good a predictor). One other thing we do is invite the public to join us in our CSR activities around Pune and that enables us to meet like-minded people who are willing to give back to the community. They get to meet employees from our company in a casual setting while helping other people or stray animals. We also invite them to meet us at local sports tournaments (we have a killer football team!) - we are always looking for people who are team-oriented and guests get to meet employees from all levels of the company. I'm sure other people have other solutions, but so far, these are working for us. Please post what you learn!
