OK, we’ve got a problem: the business is growing. It sure brings excitement to our CEO, but it also brings tons of trouble to our IT team, which has to keep up with the pace.
All our pizzerias are run by our own IT system. It’s responsible for every step of our pizza making.
By the end of 2016, we at Dodo Pizza had 154 pizza shops in 9 countries. Now it’s 247. The guys from the franchise department brag that by the end of the year it could be 300 easily.
The growth itself takes its toll on our infrastructure, which needs bolstering. The expansion also increases the demand for new features: the more people join our pizza chain, the more they expect from us.
Obviously, we need more developers to join our 60-person team. And we need them today (or even better, yesterday). The question is: how do you speed up hiring without compromising on recruitment “quality”?
