Recruiting for agile teams requires a different focus than when recruiting for traditional teams. I'd like to give you some of the qualities I look for in candidates when I am recruiting.
- Passion and aptitude: I recruit strategically. It is much easier to teach a skill and instill passion.
- Communication: An agile team thrives on strong communication (and I don't mean accents or poor English). If someone can get a point across in 5 words or a simple picture, their in.
