We currently use senior software devs to sift through resumes

Dear god why? It's the opposite of what they're hired to do and likely not a skill they were hired for in the first place.

That's a fair comment. The company is small-ish and starting to grow so I think as it moves to the next stage of growth the practice will change.

I thought the same thing. Instead HR should just get better at hiring and gain some knowledge about the positions they are hiring for.

We have always been a company of engineers with very low overhead staff. Things may change in the future as we grow. When that happens, we can draw on the devs experiences to inform hiring practices.
