Advice and answers from the OfferZen Team

Write your summary for developers

This is your chance to tell developers why they’d want to join your company. When writing the summary, keep in mind you’re writing only for developers. Don’t be afraid to get technical.

Developers want to know the following:

  • Company culture & core values
  • What they’ll be building
  • Development process (e.g. release cycles)
  • Opportunities for learning & growth
  • Your interview process

Let developers know what to expect

Describe your interview process upfront to set expectations, creating a smooth and enjoyable interview process:

  • Number of rounds and how they will be conducted i.e. phone call, video Skype or on-site interviews
  • Skill tests or assessments that need to be completed
  • Major milestones or key people they will meet

Perks

What cool extras do you offer developers at your company? It can sometimes be tricky to think of perks. We’ve found it’s easiest if you consider other companies and what they offer. For instance many companies have a strict 9am to 5pm work day, but if you have more flexible hours then list those.

Here are some perks that we’ve found developers care about:

  • Flexible Hours
  • Remote Working
  • Choose your own computer
  • Good coffee
  • Parking bay
  • Flexible Leave Policy
  • No Dress Code
  • Free snacks and drinks
  • Medical aid plan
  • Catered daily lunch

Adding Jobs

OfferZen is not a job board and developers won’t be able to see jobs on your company profile. Developers will only see the job when you send them an interview request.

You can add all the development jobs you’re hiring for on OfferZen. It’s a good idea to include a brief description too.

The OfferZen team looks at your hiring needs when recommending developers to you, so it pays off to keep it updated.

Office Photos

If you want to include office photos on your company profile, we will send a professional photographer around to take some photos of your office and team (free of charge).

Having photo's is not essential to start meeting developers but it's a nice touch for them to be able to see your offices.
