How to find Database Developers with Boolean search strings

To hire Database Developers, use Boolean search on Google to discover resumes and profiles that meet your hiring team’s requirements. We created a few sample search strings that you can modify based on what you are looking for.


Generic search string to find Database Developers

Here’s an example of a generic search string that you can further modify to find resumes:

(intitle:resume OR inurl:resume) “database developer” -job -jobs -sample -examples

Use the operators intitle: and inurl: to look for the word “resume” in page titles and page urls respectively. Often, our results will contain pages that are irrelevant to us, like sample resumes or job ads. Use the NOT (-) operator to exclude those pages.


Searching for Database Developer profiles

Database Developers often have profiles on programming sites like Stack Overflow and software development platforms like GitHub. Modify and run our sample Boolean strings on Google to look for profiles in those platforms. Include the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • “badges” “database developer”
  • “database developer” “contribution activity”

Add more criteria in your search to find profiles that better match your requirements.

When sourcing EU candidates, please refer to guidance on using social media for recruiting and collecting candidate information as per the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR.
