Finding qualified candidates is getting harder even for expert recruiters. It takes a lot of hard work. Fortunately, efficient sourcing tools will make your quest much easier and faster. Here are some suggestions of both paid and free tools to assist you in sourcing top talent.

1. Platforms you can source from


1.1 GitHub

GitHub is the largest development platform out there. With 73 million developers, it’s safe to say that GitHub is loaded with great tech talent.

When sourcing developers on GitHub, it’s recommended you include 3 main things into your search: followers, skillset and location.

1.2 Stack Overflow

Stack Overflow is a public platform for tech-related questions and answers. It can be great for finding new candidates and getting useful information about them.

Meetup is an online platform where you can join groups, start groups and find events about nearly any topic.

To use Slack for sourcing, start by joining the communities that are relevant to the roles you’re searching for. You can let people in the channel know about the job opening. Just make sure not to post generic job postings or post too often as this might be seen as spam by the channel members.
