Swing Talent

We know talent.

We build teams that build solutions.


Swing Talent started as Swing Staffing, an agency concentrating on finding the best in-house talent for high-growth, early stage businesses becoming the go-to partner for our venture capital partners for our effectiveness and innovativeness in solving their portfolio company's talent needs. As our Talent recruitment product thrived, we realized quickly that our clients, in addition to permanent talent, also required on-demand technical teams to meet critical time sensitive product development needs.

Leveraging our global network of highly specialized development talent, Swing put together an award winning team of designers and developers to provide these much-needed services to our clients. Voila! Swing Development and thus Swing Talent was born.

From understanding our clients from a business development, marketing and growth perspective combined by undertaking a key role in their technical product development, Swing evolved into a true Talent Consultancy. We align the product and its evolution with the teams that are driving it as quickly as possible to the market.

Today, Swing Talent provides two services; Talent Recruitment and IT Development, which stand-alone brilliantly but when combined together, provide a beautiful and symbiotic outcome that our clients have grown to love.

Staffing Services

Providing exceptional talent to early-stage and high-growth companies focusing on technology, marketing, sales and business analytics.

    Swing uses a combination of cutting edge technology and deep relationships to identify and engage the right talent for your company. Our Retained Search approach fosters exclusivity and focus that you need when seeking the Industry's best and brightest.

  • Priority staffing search

    Swing's Priority Search involves a retained volume partnership where clients prepay for a number of positions. These searches take priority over contingent searches and are our most popular long-term arrangements.

  • Contingency search
    Contingency search

    Our contingent searches are based upon successful placement of the candidate. Clients don't pay until the candidate is selected and on board. This method is particularly useful when clients are looking for individual contributors and lower level staff positions. In addition, we find that some clients prefer this model until a higher-level volume is required.

  • In-house talent acquisition

    Sometimes our clients grow so quickly that they need Swing to manage the hiring and intake process for a large number of employees. We can provide top professionals from our team to be on-site for our clients.

  • Contract talent

    When our clients need short-term talent to meet immediate needs, they call upon Swing to place the best person on a contract basis to fulfill these needs. Of course, there are situations where our clients decide the fit is too good and bring on our contractors full time, at which time Swing receives a placement fee.
