About Us

In total, we have successfully placed over 1000 highly qualified software engineers.

Recruiter Extraordinaire has been a trusted business partner for leading software development companies since 1998. We are a national recruiting firm with expertise in the following geographic markets: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Pacific Northwest, and East Coast. We have placed candidates with fortune 500 companies such as Fireman's Fund, IBM, and eBay as well as numerous start-up companies throughout Silicon Valley and wherever technology is hot in the US. In total, we have successfully placed over 1000 highly qualified software engineers.

Our goal is to help you achieve your business strategies through the acquisition of superior technical talent. We do this by working closely with our clients so that we may learn their business goals, company values, and staffing needs. In doing so you will learn that our organization was built on a foundation of ethics and integrity. This, along with our persistent and successful recruiting efforts, has helped us establish long-term relationships with clients. We are proud of this accomplishment and would very much like you to join our family of satisfied partners.

Employer Services

We offer direct placement, temporary staffing, retainer, and custom services tailored to your needs. Furthermore, Recruiter Extraordinaire is more than just a source of talent. To ensure a successful outcome, we review the ‘lay of the land’ with our clients. For instance, what's the state of the talent pool both locally and nationally? Given your time frame, is it best to consider relocating talent, thereby increasing the talent pool? Based on market conditions, what will the candidate expect in terms of pay and benefits? Does this align with your expectations? Are your interview and decision making processes streamlined to swiftly move a candidate to the offer stage? These are just a few examples of the ‘entire’ recruiting process. All of the pieces need to be lined up and in place for a successful outcome. And reviewing these steps and expectations is part of our process. Why? Because we have observed that when anyone of these steps is not aligned, it adversely impacts a successful outcome.

Candidate Services

Something is missing from your current opportunity. Maybe it's the challenge. Maybe you need a change of scenery. Perhaps there was a change in company management and the new direction doesn't meet your career goals. Whatever the reason may be, Recruiter Extraordinaire can help. Over the years we have worked with hundreds and hundreds of candidates and helped them land the career opportunity they were looking for. It all starts with a conversation. For instance, tell us what you want. What are your career goals? What kinds of technologies do you like to work with? What type of work environment best suits your needs? Feel free to send a copy of your current resume, your career goals, and a good time to talk.
