About the event

📅   25 January
⏰  18.00 - 19.00 SAST
📍 Online Webinar

In 2024, it will remain a challenge to hire top developers who are excited about your mission — and the competition is especially fierce for senior developers. 

In a post-pandemic world, senior developers are inclined to entertain offers from companies all across the world. Most senior developers are leaving their roles to get a better salary, and because of poor management and a lack of work-life balance. Given this, how can your company stand out when it comes to attracting senior developers? What can you offer senior developers that will help them choose your company over another? 

And what will help them stay with you for the long haul?

Join the conversation with fellow tech leaders to dive into:

🚀 Tried and tested strategies for attracting senior developers.
🚀 Creating a culture to retain your senior developers.
🚀 The latest data from our 2024 State of the Developer Nation survey on what senior developers want when looking for new opportunities.
