In part four of this five part series on lessons learned from tripling an engineering team we finally reach the actual hiring! In this article I cover lessons learned, how we tracked our recruitment process, and how we implemented flexibililty in our approach to hiring.
In 2016, after being acquired by private investors, we were given the green light to triple our engineering team as fast as possible. In this article (part 3 of a 5 part series) I focus on all the preparations required before starting to hire.
In 2016, after being acquired by private investors, we were given the green light to triple our engineering team as fast as possible.

In November 2016 the company I worked for was acquired, injected with cash, and told to 'go faster'. Over the next six months I led a recruitment drive that saw the engineering team (more than) triple.
