I have a question that I think belongs in general chat rather than jobs or whatnot but please correct me if I’m wrong.
As I’ve started a business that will rely quite a bit on Elixir I’m looking ahead and seeing what level of interest from what sort of developers reside in say Washington state, BC, and Oregon for serious elixir development. The kind of info I’m interested in are answers to questions like these:
- Would you look for side contracts or full time work
- Coming in from more of a junior (wants to learn and ramp up to making bank) or senior (have enough skills to just cash in on Elixir skills)
- Experienced with other languages&platforms and just diving in to elixir&BEAM, or already a BEAM and OTP master
This is a general sense for now because as I write proposals… some of them impact businesses for years to come and I want to test out a theory. That theory being that while it is a younger and smaller language, it is perhaps easier and more focused to find quality people to take great care of your businesses projects. Does anyone agree or disagree with that statement? Especially for businesses that are not tech-savvy and get lost (or sometimes are at the mercy) of the enterprise contractor world.
Let’s call this a real world (my upcoming contracts and proposals range from real estate to robotic integration to insurance) discussion in maintaining elixir development at a business long term. Interested in your personal perspective or experiences out there! Hopefully this becomes more of a btw I’m hiring message in a lucky future soon, but for now I’ll settle for… btw you CAN hire for elixir development and here’s how.
