The demand for Magento talent has gone through the roof as more people choose to migrate. Now more than ever, staff retention is key. At Austin Fraser we not only help to grow dev teams with an abundance of contractors, we also make sure those who take on permanent staff are also in the best position to keep them when the market does pick up.
We’d like to say a huge thanks to END. for not only hosting, providing a great speaker but also to their CTO, Paul for sharing his insight into how to manage a team and create the best possible working environment for them…
"Attracting and retaining the best Magento talent comes down to one simple principle: we want to liberate and empower developers. Unless you are hiring hacks (please don’t do that), your development team will be passionate about producing their best work. Trust them to do this. Remove obstacles. Don’t micromanage. Give them the tools they need. Allow them to bring ideas to the table. If they need time to produce a better quality end product, see this as an opportunity and not as a problem. What really sets businesses apart is the fundamental idea that the best quality code and innovation are way more important than deadlines and constraints. If you can get this right (and it isn’t always easy), your developers will thank you!"
You can continue this conversation with Paul at October’s event. END. are true advocates of M2, and offer their online marketplace to their customer base across multiple platforms, including an iOS app.
We’ve partnered with END. throughout this year and helped to support their impressive growth, they’re an exciting company and one to watch in the eCommerce space. We’ve worked with them to put a plan in place to scope out projected hiring needs, steadily and healthily growing their Tech team, with retention at the forefront of our minds.
We are here to support all of your Magento needs. Get in touch with Josh (Permanent) and Dan (Contract) - [masked]/[masked] -[masked]
