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.
Barbara is one of the best recruiters I have worked with. She kept me informed of every step in the process and followed up with me as needed. She was good at listening about my needs. Very good at keeping an active communication.
Scott and his team reached out to me for the role that I’ve been in now for the last two years and I couldn’t be happier. It was a match made in occupational heaven. Thanks for helping me find such a great job, Scott!
Scott was a pleasure to work with. He's was a tremendous advocate throughout the process and w/o him I would have never landed the job. He was able to coach me through a very challenging interview process giving both practical and strategic guidance on how to navigate the interviews. I would highly recommend working with Scott if you are looking to fill a role or looking to find a new job. He's hands down the best.
Scott displays nothing but the utmost professionalism and attention to detail throughout the recruitment process, and I would not hesitate to call him for any help or to refer his services to anyone I know is looking.
Cindi was fantastic! She was very open and honest during our conversations, returned call promptly if she was not available when I called, and worked very well with the communications between the company and myself. After I started with the company, Cindi would regularly check in with me to see how things were going and how the fit was between me, the company and my co-workers. Cindi was an absolute pleasure to work with and, if I need her expertise in the future, I would absolutely work with her again.
