Company Overview

Website: View Jobs

Headquarters: Culver City, CA



Technical Connections, Inc. (TCI) is the premier recruiting firm specializing exclusively in technology professionals. We offer a full range of services, including retained search, contingency placement, and short- and long-term consulting.

Founded in 1984 by Helen MacKinnon, an executive with extensive technical and managerial experience in the computer industry, TCI initially focused on serving clients in Southern California within the software development field. Today, under the leadership of our CEO, Scott MacKinnon, we work with companies in a variety of industries across the U.S., from start-ups to international corporations.

Unlike many staffing agencies, TCI has always specialized in tech. TCI’s recruiters do not consider themselves “headhunters,” but rather professional consultants with the interpersonal skills, technology and business expertise, and market knowledge to offer candidates and clients a rare level of strategic counsel.

Technical Connections is 100% employee owned. We believe that when all employees have an ownership stake in their company, it is reflected in the quality of their work and therefore in the long-term success of the firm. Our employees have an ownership interest in the firm through the Technical Connections Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). TCI contributes annually to a trust account for the benefit of the employees.

Let our team show you what we’re capable of – you won’t be disappointed.

Jennifer was very helpful throughout the recruitment process. Jennifer was there for me whenever I had a question and she made sure I had all the resources I needed for the interview. With her assistance I landed the job!

Before I switched to tech, I was an attorney for 10 years. Both industries are saturated with recruiters, so I have seen my fair share. Scott is the best I have come across so far. Anyone can slap on a suit and call themselves a recruiter. I cannot think of any industry with a lower barrier to entry. 99% of these guys are pitching consultancy gigs or contract work for the finance and e-commerce sectors. It's hard to find one who can actually put you up for a full-time position with a real tech company. Scott can do that. He has a knack for professionalism and presentation, watches what he says, and articulates well. That's the person you want dropping your resume on an employer's desk. And that's probably why the organization I just interviewed with is a step up from where I'm coming from. If you need more convincing, take a look at the guy's LinkedIn. His recruiting days predate the Great Recession. I graduated from law school in 2009, and after about 300 carefully targeted resumes I finally got a job paying half what new patent attorneys made in ordinary times. But if us lawyers had it bad, for recruiters it was the apocalypse. Only the best of them made it through that particular stretch of time in one piece. The rest just sort of faded out of existence.

Barbara was great. As part of my second interview I had to do a mock training. She offered to help me prepare and it was a huge benefit. She always followed up, provided key insights, and was with me every step of the way. I would highly recommend her and user her again in the future. Every recruiter should be like Barbara.

Russ is the best recruiter I have worked with. He has clear knowledge of the industry and matches people with companies very well. But what stands out most is the informational emails he sends before an interview with the company, they are detailed, personal and extremely helpful. Regardless of the outcome with the company I interviewed with, big thanks to you Russ.

My experience with Russ was great. He asked a couple or questions to understand my background and i was able to freely express myself and my journey so far in the industry.
