Developers have been requesting remote work for years and they are not alone - 99% of workers say that they would like to work remotely at least some of the time for the rest of their careers. By developing a remote onboarding process now, you’re not only getting ahead, you are likely fixing a flawed process (just 12% of respondents in a Gallup Survey stated that their company does a great job with onboarding). To help you get off on the right foot, we’ve compiled some best practices for you to implement in your own company onboardings.

You had your interview process down. Your candidate experience was stellar. Glassdoor was packed with positive reviews, your inbox overflowed with candidate emails thanking you for the smooth experience. But then COVID-19 hit, and your company, like many others, adopted an indefinite work-from-home policy. No more face-to-face interviews, no more onsite days, no more get-to-know-the-team-lunches.

As recruiters, we’ve all experienced the heartbreak of a newly hired employee leaving after only a short time. Sometimes we’re left wondering what happened, and other times it’s quite clear, but the resulting frustrations are almost always the same. As we scramble to restart the hiring process and find a replacement, we often ask ourselves: is there something we could have done differently?

A computer science degree is no longer a prerequisite for establishing a programming career these days. In fact, most of today’s successful programmers are self-taught while others participated in a coding boot camp that fast-tracked their learning process.

On Friday, September 20th, Honeypot is joining Greta Thunberg’s global climate strike. As a developer-focused job platform, we are keenly aware of the role that technology plays in our lives and in our world. When it comes to climate change, tech (and more specifically the developer community) provides some of our greatest hopes for lessening humanity’s overall impact.
In preparation for the strike, we spoke with two Honeypot clients, tado° and Lana Labs, about their thoughts on tech and climate change. Environmental activism may not be the first thing that jumps to mind when you hear home heating or process mining–but perhaps it should be. These two forward-thinking companies show that there are many ways to use our modern tools to make a positive difference. Read on to find out how they do it!

Vienna’s high quality of life mixed with the increasing demand for technical candidates makes it the perfect city for developers. Regularly topping polls of the most livable cities in the world, Vienna is home to over 80,000 software developers–roughly 80% of all developers in Austria. Despite this, more than a third of companies still complain about the difficulty of filling vacancies.
