For us, the ideal candidate can relate to this scenario:
‘’You are sitting in your office, looking through the window, comfortably leaning back to your ergonomic-friendly office chair. Staring into the distance, at that sun-kissed Belgrade, you are thinking through the candidate who is supposed to join the final interview in a couple of minutes. You are on stand-by - whilst gently blending the second coffee this morning, you are unconsciously turning around towards the computer, making the last-minute check. Everybody is already here. Google Meet works. Candidate joined. You inhale deeply and with great pride announce ‘’And so it begins’’.
Silent nodding and support coming from all other colleagues. You close your eyes, visualizing closing that Linkedin project after 3 and a half months.
Slack message interrupts the silence.
‘’We are opening a new position. Senior GO Developer. Maybe even Team Lead. Do you have somebody in the pipeline already?’’
Silence. Victory smile is gone. You are in disbelief. You are falling back to your chair, and just like that, somewhere between despair and hopelessness, you ask your colleague:
‘’Hey Ana, do you know Ivan? He could be a perfect fit for it!’’
‘’Ivan? From Brum Co.? Didn’t he recently change his job?’’
‘’No, I’m talking about Ivan from Cmony. I met Ivana and Milos last week, they told me he might be interested in a job change, he mentioned something while they were off for a beer two weeks ago.’’
This is our starting point.
What would you do in this situation? What would be your next step?
Can you continue this conversation? Are you able to name at least three companies that are mostly using Go as their tech stack, out of blue?
