Director of Product Engineering & IT in Software, 51 - 200 employees
I’ve found ZipRecruiter works well in the Boston area for technical talent. AngelList gets me engineers excited to work for smaller startups. LinkedIn is in 3rd place for talent for us.

Tend to use 3rd to party agency. They charge flat fee of $10,000 per candidate hired and onboarded. Saves me ton of time.

Happy to refer if anyone wants
Chief Techical Officer in Software, 11 - 50 employees
Work with both ZipRecruiter and Tech Recruiters but the best staff we get is from personal referrals from within the company from our own staff. People that they have worked with before and want to work with again. I'd rather give my staff the recruitment fee than anybody else.
Chief Technology Officer in Healthcare and Biotech, 1,001 - 5,000 employees
LinkedIn and Seek
CIO in Media, 11 - 50 employees
Typically start with LinkedIn and if we don't get quality candidates, move to a specialise recruitment firm.
Manager in Manufacturing, 10,001+ employees
We usually get candidates through our job portal or Linkedin.

Direct hiring through referrals. It takes longer but the overall quality of the candidates turns out to be higher, and is less susceptible to recruiter spamming.
Senior Director in Healthcare and Biotech, 1,001 - 5,000 employees
LinkedIn is the first place I post. Try to get the network engaged to find known entities. If that does no produce candidates then Dice and finally a private search firm.
Chief Technologist in Telecommunication, 10,001+ employees
I've used LinkedIn as well as 3rd party agency to facilitate the recruiting effort. Also, depending on the location of the hiring, different countries may have certain local rules that one must know and it will be better to work with the local agency for hiring.

Generally go to internal recruitment who have a large talent database. If there's a need to go external, linkedIn is usually the go to.
