ABOUT US

Whether you have a need for experienced individual contributors or tech-centric CxO leadership talent (e.g. CTOs, CIOs, etc.) we have an approach that we’re confident you’ll embrace.

Our approach is unique and refreshingly effective!

  • The founder of TechTalent is originally from the tech space which includes a technical management role held for years with a small, fast growing San Diego based software company. The latter was successfully sold to a larger software company before he transitioned to the staffing domain so he’s no stranger to the small tech company software space.
  • Add almost 20 years of technical recruiting expertise to years in the tech space and this unique blend positions TechTalent as a true consultative partner. Compare this blended experience to other tech staffing outfits (with little to no tech industry experience submitting resumes based on a job description filled with a handful of misunderstood technical buzzwords) and the difference is pronounced.

What exactly is a TechTalent TSME?

  • A TSME is a Technical Subject Matter Expert. TechTalent has assembled a cadre of handpicked experts that strategically partner with TechTalent in the technical qualifying process of potential candidates before our clients invest valuable time and energy interviewing.
  • For many high demand tech stacks and technical disciplines this means that hiring managers will only be presented with technically pre-screened candidates based on each client’s unique/specific requirements established up front with TSME involvement. Other recruitment agencies often utilize ineffective online technical testing/assessment solutions that have proven over time to be too broad and simply not specific enough for individual client technical hiring needs.  Learn more …

Since technology continually evolves and hiring needs vary, TechTalent offers a full range of recruiting solutions including Contract, Contract-to-Hire and Direct Hire placement services.

Our philosophy!

Instead of fantasizing about large placement fees or bloated bill rates, TechTalent focuses on matching talented people with attractive career opportunities. Essential guiding principles are:

  1.   Do what’s right! In the end, this entire process involves individual careers and company futures so it’s critical to keep things in perspective.
  2.   Invest time up front to understand your business, your company culture and the specifics of your technical environment.
  3.   Only present strong, pre-qualified candidates. As a matter of fact, we’d rather not send you any candidates than a handful of pseudo-qualified resumes.

"I've known Alex since 2001 and he has an exceptional knack for understanding our requirements and corporate culture. He also has a very keen eye for top-notch technical talent. The combination of the two skills set him apart from the rest of the recruiting market. I'm very picky and Alex reduced my "time to hire" by 85% by sending me well qualified candidates. He is successful because he understands my requirements, my business, and my expectations. Thanks Alex!"
