The Best Way To Find IT Contractors

The Coyote Creek IT Staffing Difference

It’s a very competitive market out there for top IT talent. It’s not easy to find excellent Senior Network Engineers, Senior Windows Engineers, Help Desk Specialists, Atlassian Engineers, and other IT team members. You know that working with the right IT staffing firm can be key.

While the reality is that anyone can hang out their shingle and call themselves an IT recruiter, few can bring the depth of expertise to the job that Coyote Creek brings. After all, we’ve been providing IT consulting services ourselves since 1998. Most of our own employees are IT engineers. Which means that when you choose Coyote Creek you get an IT staffing partner that…

  • Knows your business and appreciates your IT recruitment challenges
  • Understands the technical and business requirements of your IT needs
  • Can provide insight regarding the engineers that are ideal for a given role
  • Has a proven screening process that focuses on both behavioral issues and technical expertise

Located in the Silicon Valley, Coyote Creek places people nationwide, with a special emphasis on the Bay area.
