Recruiting and retaining a talented iOS developer can challenge even the best organizations. Meanwhile, finding a new job requires a lot of investment from an iOS developer. Despite the demand for developers of all sorts, organizations have done little to streamline improve the experience of their hiring process.
Part of the problem stems from a lack of uniqueness and creativity. Workplaces copy each other to an astonishing degree. Most offer productivity-killing open floorplan offices. Most offer 401k plans with 1-3% employer matching (even though the IRS allows employers to contribute much more than the employee). Most offer a paltry 15 - 20 days of vacation. Most offer free coffee and snacks.
To get the best developers, your organization need to stand out. The hiring process should entice and excite prospects. To achieve this, your organization must express an opinion. It must defy the norms because copycats never rank above average.
