Staffing solutions provider Grapnel Tech Services, LLC (Grapnel Tech) has experienced impressive and sustained growth since their 2007 founding. A global company based in West Des Moines, IA, the firm nearly quadrupled their revenue in 2011 compared to the year prior, bringing in approximately $13 million amid consistent layoffs, hiring freezes, and a volatile market.
So what's worked for Grapnel Tech?
"We stay on top of the industry," said Darryl C Jose, Director of Staffing Services at Grapnel Tech. "Our team knows tech. Understanding trends enables us to screen, recruit, and place candidates for our clients regardless of industry or staffing solutions needs."
Grapnel Tech connects information technology professionals with contract and direct hire placement relevant to their expertise at no charge to the candidate. Their staffing team uses hands-on technology experience to match candidates with positions relevant to their skills. This "expert-to-expert" connection enables Grapnel Tech to provide high-demand staffing solutions for positions like Project Manager, Business Analyst, Mobile Developer, and Software Engineer.
"Our clients need someone who really gets IT...especially for direct hire opportunities where the candidate is becoming a long-term part of the team," Jose said. "Sure, we screen for soft skills and communication, too, but with how fast technology changes you really need a company that gets it."
Companies across a range of industries including finance, insurance, and healthcare rely on Grapnel Tech to provide both temporary and direct hire talent whether they need just one employee to fill a recent opening or dozens to spin up a new project.
In fact, staffing solutions for mobile development has become a key part of Grapnel Tech's strategy. Grapnel Tech manages their own in-house mobile development subsidiary, iapps24, allowing them not only to provide mobile development consulting and strategy, but also to utilize in-house experts in the IT recruitment and staffing solutions process. Grapnel Tech's staff experts have planned, developed, and managed mobile development projects for platforms including Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android.
Jose also cited competitive rates, a global presence, and certified minority-owned business status as competitive advantages supporting their sustained growth.
