My team takes this approach to hiring. We look for solid Ruby and
Python programmers and if they show an aptitude and desire to learn
Erlang we will train them. If not we have plenty of Ruby and Python
projects for them to work on. This approach has worked out very well
for us, but we do prefer candidates who at least know some Erlang. We
also prefer candidates who have contributed to open source and have
public repos on Github.
