Heres why you're getting a little blowback on this thread :

When you have market power , your approach works. Unfortunately , and this has been the case for 10 years now, you don't have market power when hiring developers.

When developers have so many options for jobs but you have so few options for good candidates , you need to be upfront with your budget range. If you are not upfront with your budget range , the good candidates you want to hire will pass you over.

They'll do this because it is not necessary to expend effort sending CVs or discussing salary with you. They'll simply move on to the next opportunity if they can't determine quickly whether the role will be worth it for them. Developers can afford to be picky and fickle because they get so many offers and so many people wanting to "talk" to them about roles.

By not providing salary ranges you also give out indications that you're trying to gain the upper hand in salary negotiations or that you intend to try and get people for less than their market related value. Whether true or not , this is what it looks like.
