Top Tech Talent Certified & Delivered

Any staffing service can send you a stack of resumes, but no other firm matches our rigorous vetting process. Whether we’re finding your temporary contract hires or full-time employees, we find the top 3% of tech talent for you.

What We Offer

Technology Staffing Solutions

Emergent Staffing helps you build your team and fill talent gaps. We offer contract and direct placement of qualified engineers, project managers, business analysts, and more.
Employer Direct Placement A

Direct Placement

We recruit and qualify top candidates to join your team as full-time employees.

If you know that you’re looking for a long-term employee that’s fully invested in your company, direct placement is a good option. With direct placement, you avoid the disruptions that contractor turnover can cause. You don’t pay us until we find someone to fill the role.

The direct placement option tends to attract a larger pool of candidates than contract roles.

  • Pay after the role is filled
  • Avoid disruption from turnover
  • Employee shared interest
  • A larger pool of candidates
Employer Contract A


Temporary employees on our payroll join your company for a fixed period of time.

You'll be able to tackle big projects or accelerate your pace without committing to long-term employment. It's the way to go if you have a short-term need or if you expect the skillsets you require to change in the near future. Contractors tend to be very experienced and can bring skillsets you don't already have in-house.

You don't need to pay for benefits for these contract employees (because they already get great benefits from us). If the contractor is a good fit, you can bring them on as a full-time employee with our contract-to-hire option.

  • Flex your workforce up and down
  • Add new skills quickly
  • Lower up-front and onboarding costs

How We Do It

Our Vetting Process

Like other software engineer recruiters, we start by reviewing a candidate’s work history and job application. But we don’t stop there — all of our candidates have to demonstrate that they can really do the work that comes with the job.

We start by making it easy for everyone find your job opportunity. Based on the position requirements, we optimize the job description for top keyword searches relevant to the role. 

Before we start a public search, we dive into our pool of thousands of technical candidates we’ve worked with previously, potentially shortcutting the process and delivering top talent very quickly. 

Then we advertise on Indeed, LinkedIn, and role specific boards to maximize the pool of candidates. For fully remote jobs, we post in up to 40 metro areas with reasonable tech salaries.

Our systems allow us to efficiently screen hundreds of applicants for every open position. We start with a big pool of candidates so that we’re sure to find a great fit for your role.

  • Optimize your job description 
  • Advertise on your behalf 
  • Efficiently screen 100s of applicants 

The values and commitment of your workforce is of paramount importance. For that reason, we use personality and culture assessments designed by experts to make sure candidates share core values and align culturally to fit tech roles in general.  

We also dive deeper into their personality and behavioral traits, making sure they are right for your specific role. This impartial, systematic process ensures that the applicants chosen will positively impact your workplace. 

With our knowledge of your company, we're also able to present your company’s culture to candidates throughout the process. We make sure it’s a fit both ways. 

  • Core values on target 
  • Personality traits match 
  • Culture fit both ways 

The results are in: pre-employment testing correlates to job success more than resume sifting and interviews do. At Emergent Staffing, we take this to heart with our uniquely crafted assessments for each role, which require cognitive ability assessments, knowledge tests, and for some roles, short coding challenges. 

Using sophisticated technology, we stop cheating in its tracks so we can count on the assessment results. At this point, we’re pretty sure which candidates will continue to do well in our process. Only the select few move on to our final vetting process steps with a chance to become certified top tech talent from Emergent. 

  • Pre-employment testing is a must 
  • Assessments unique to each role
  • Few move forward 

As the first people to interact with candidates, our recruiters represent your company, portraying your brand and the strengths it has to offer, while also ensuring that it’s a fit for both sides. 

Some technology professionals make themselves out to be someone they’re not, hoping that the person interviewing them can’t ask hard technical questions. Our senior technical recruiters are well-versed in technology and can quickly weed out those who are puffing up their resumes. 

Using a traditional interview approach, our recruiters identify candidates with strong interpersonal skills and investigate potential risk-factors, making sure we deliver candidates who fit your workplace. 

  • Representing your brand 
  • Technical interviews are our jam 
  • The human touch matters 

Requiring candidates to show completed work is a dependable way to evaluate whether a candidate can do the job. At Emergent, we’ve created challenges that mimic the real-world work required by many technology jobs. Candidates are asked to spend hours of their own time completing challenges that let us see what they can really accomplish and then present those results. 

Whether asked to develop a custom web application, complete a mini database project, gather requirements in from mock client meetings, find defects in a broken website, or design a web app user interface, the results of our role-based challenges let us certify the quality of the top technology talent to an unmatched level. 

  • Proven abilities 
  • Demonstrated commitment 
  • Certified quality 

* Role-based challenges may require additional fees for direct placements. Consultants with a Certified Emergent Talent certificate have passed our skill-based challenge for the roles indicated on their certificate. 

Many staffing agencies focus on quantity over quality, but at Emergent Staffing, we only deliver candidates certified by our robust process with the expectation that you’ll hire one of the few provided. 

We strive to form a partnership with you in which we regularly deliver quality candidates, filling your hiring needs and helping your company grow.  

We make hiring for technology roles as easy as possible, working with you from beginning to end, and even helping after the hire with onboarding support and ensuring the long-term success of the placement. 

  • Quality over quantity
  • Long-term partnership
  • Hiring for tech made easy
