Additionally, the ability to reflect and learn from past experiences and difficulties, as well as how they have overcome them will tell you more about your candidate’s work process.   

Aside from a good salary, what can I do to attract top Software Developers?  

Proving your investment in upskilling your employees is the best way to help you stand out, especially with how rapidly the software development landscape is evolving.

Tech professionals also are a lot about the technology they work on, so ensure they have exposure to emerging technologies and a chance to gain expertise in them.
