If hiring developers was hard before, it's even weirder now due to covid. This will truly be a crash course - come expecting to learn about salary ranges and hourly rates, current trends in the market, including covid and what to expect when hiring junior or experienced folks, along with diversity and where to find candidates. This session will hopefully be helpful for employers and job seekers alike - as engineers ourselves we'll share quite a few personal anecdotes and stories.

All levels

Eryn O'Neil

In her 13 years in the industry, Eryn O’Neil has been a developer, a tech lead, an independent consultant, a manager, and a director. Coming from the agency world, she has worked on everything from e-commerce and online promotions to crafting a proprietary framework and CMS. Her philosophy is to build software by placing humans first: both the people who will use it and the developers who will build it with you (and maintain it afterward).

Living in Minnesota, Eryn spends most of her free time teaching blues dancing, being a new mom, and wishing it weren’t snowing. You can follow her on Twitter at @eryno.

Matt Decuir

Matt (he/him) is a software engineer, entrepreneur, and Minnestar board member. Past projects include Invisible Network, Mpls Jr Devs, and OMG Transit.
