Hiring Developers Through Open Source: WorksHub Issues

Nick Maraj 15 July, 2020 | 3 min read

Work is Changing

You don’t need to be in the same room as your tech talent to change the world. Programmers are building the future from different cities, countries and continents.

You no longer need to pay Bay Area or New York salaries to get the same quality engineers. Remote working is one of the most common demands from the developers we speak to; candidates want the freedom and the lifestyle that remote working gives and we want to give it to them. We even launched Remote Works off the back of this demand for remote working.

We’re helping the best and biggest companies in the world by connecting them to the best talent, wherever it is.

"Companies should be able to pick the best programmers from the entire global talent pool... not just who happens to live within commuting distance"


Which is why we're launching a brand new product to help companies streamline their hiring and scale easier than ever before. Works Hub Issues is a tool that will drastically change the way your source your programming talent.

No-one can predict the future, but we can help you prepare for where the industry is going. By utilising Open-Source contributions, you can broadcast to the global community of developers and get them working directly on your technology. You don’t have to worry about a three month hiring process, flying people out for interviews and making them an offer, only for them to take another job somewhere else. You can get real work done and shipped in the time it would take to get someone in for an interview.

We’ve helped 1000's of Software Engineers find new jobs, but we want to do so much more. The labour market is re-aligning and we want to give companies the tools to make the most of the changing landscape. With WorksHub Issues, we’re opening up our community to get working on projects that matter to you.

Developers get to test out new languages and technologies, find out what your technology culture is like, get paid for their work and build their skills. You get the code shipped with the least hassle, and the ability to scale beyond your resources. You'll also open up dialogue with a crafted community of developers and when it comes to hiring, you'll already have a talent pool to choose from.

Right now, real programming talent that could help your business is stuck behind closed doors. The programmers are out there, but they’re in private Slack groups, in Reddit communities or otherwise inaccessible to you. They are not actively seeking a new job, but would 'consider it, if the right thing came along'.

Works Hub Issues is about creating a grey area between exploration and job seeking. Allowing technical talent to find your business based on the values they actually want to assess. As a company you get to try before you buy, you may even get some significant contributions to your technology along the way.

"80% of our users said they’d be more likely to work for a company whose Open-Source they’d already contributed to"


And we’re backed by the numbers. According to this year’s Stack Overflow survey, over 90% of developers believe that OSS is either the same or better quality than closed. We also surveyed the thousands of developers on our platform and the results were overwhelming. Over 80% of our users said they’d be more likely to work for a company whose Open-Source they’d already contributed to.

Instead of boilerplate coding tests that take time, don’t tell you enough about a candidate and don’t produce anything valuable, why not get prospective hires working on code that can actually help your product?
