    What makes a job attractive?

    Hi everyone,

    Looking for some thoughts or advice on attracting top tech talent. Figured this was the best place to ask


    What stands out to you in a job description when you look at one? What gets you to stop and take notice and maybe even apply for it?


    As Im sure everyone here is seeing, the market for top tech talent is on fire right now. I think Priceline has a great story to tell, but I want to make sure Im telling the RIGHT story in the RIGHT way

    Any opinion you can give is deeply appreciated. Thanks.

    I think he means that someone who might work for you will likely want a guaranteed number of hours available to work, or a guaranteed salary. I definitely think this is one of the more important factors when considering a development job personally.

    In addition to what hasouna mentioned, other great perks to have would be the ability to work remotely, a benefits package(medical, dental, etc), paid vacation time, and maybe stock options or even profit sharing if they are going to be the main driver behind your development team.

    I think others will chime in with other perks I have missed. Keep in mind you don't have to offer all of these things, but offering a number of good perks like these will certainly attract attention from job seekers.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for the response. We do offer some of those perks. Our positions are full-time, salary based with great benefits including PTO time. We also offer an equity component for some of our positions. We do offer flexibility to work remotely when needed, but not on a "regular basis"..at least not right away. So from that perspective, I think we've got a lot to offer. I'm wondering, when you read a job description, what stands out at you in terms of the work?

    Question Ever Wondered?

    Have you ever wondered how your work contributes to the company as a whole? Is this something you look for in a job description?
