Hiring has gone global

If you're not yet considering hiring 100% remote developers after the Covid-19 pandemic, you're going to have a hard time. It is not that the pandemic is not going to end, but as companies have adapted to this remote model, there are no geographical limits on hiring developers. European companies can and will hire great Elixir developers from South America, for example.

This increases the competition on recruiting and comes with its challenges such as dealing with timezones, asynchronous work, and employment laws. Not to say that developed countries can pay a lot more than developing countries.

Things are changing. Hiring has gone global.
