Software developers are one of those rare breeds of talent that companies just can’t hire enough of. Just when you think that the industry is reaching an equilibrium, you get new statistics pointing to another rise in the quest to source developers. The ebb and flow of coder shortages makes securing one for your project a game of roulette.

Trudging through the trenches of GitHub definitely has its drawbacks, despite having pretty much every single developer in existence on this platform. If only there was some easy to use tool that could compile all of these geeks into one easy list! Well, Dean Da Costa has found a streamlined tool to assist in your GitHub scavenger hunt, dubbed HireGit.

This app lets you source developers based on the following criteria (that you can mix and match):

  • Programming Language
  • Country
  • Followers
  • Git Age
  • Sorting Order

Source Developers the Smart Way.

What really puts this tool ahead of the competition is the design. Not just from a point of aesthetics, which is another area this tool outshines the competition, but also in terms of how approachable its results are. 

It’s like looking at that rare breed of PowerPoint presentations that condenses endless amounts of data and presents it in an easily digestible format. That’s what this tool is doing with GitHub profiles. And it’s all done on the fly as you search for users. 

Uniquely enough, a great feature that hasn’t been available in other GitHub search engines is an “employability” score. While arbitrarily phrased, their employability score implies how active the user is on the platform. Cold calling is brutal enough as it is, so this will prevent you wasting your time on abandoned or inactive profiles.

It’s obvious that the devs at TechNarcs have a background in user interface and experience design. With this in mind, if you want to try it for yourself, be sure to head on to  

Fair Warning: You’ll have to connect your Google account to run your searches.
