Talentcrowd is the hiring platform for teams that need top tech talent, fast.
We use decades of niche expertise — and a deeply curated network — to source, vet, and match the highest-performing software engineers in North America.
If it involves software and brainpower, we can help.
(Also beer. If it involves beer, we’re game)
Demand for software engineers has never been higher (it doubled in 2021)
It’s only gonna get worse over the next decade (demand projected to grow 300% more than other fields)
The technology industry has the highest turnover rate for any industry: 13.2% 🤯🤯🤯
All of which means: you’re screwed.
Because here’s what happens to most tech teams that hire today:
Company needs great tech talent to augment existing team or tackle new project NOW
In-house recruiting team spends 3-4 months, on average, to source, vet, and onboard the engineer
Talent is poorly matched — because the recruiters are not techies; they don’t have the nuanced expertise to vet properly
OR talent is great, but engineer leaves after one year for greener pastures. So you need to start all over again.
We’re a team of tech leaders & software engineers who’ve headed boutique development firms for nearly two decades.
After hiring and managing thousands of engineers, we realized: the system was broken.
Our motto: If it’s broke, then fix it.
Talentcrowd is the platform that combines sophisticated algorithm matching with exhaustive human vetting to find you people who perform like crazy AND stick around.
Triple-vetted talent — US and Canada only
Hand-selected candidates personally matched by tech experts
Time tracking + performance monitoring in one beautiful app
Full flexibility and zero commitment
Here you’ll find only North-America-based, fluent English speakers who are (consistently!) available during normal business hours.
Plus, onshore talent means:
We get to know *every* freelancer in our community, verifying their credentials, background, and location. So you know exactly who you’re working with.
Thanks to lean operations and sophisticated tooling, you get competitive, no-surprise pricing that undercuts the market and relies on volume: our rates start at $90/hr. No hidden fees.
And did we mention? Our contractors’ expertise means less hours spent on tasks, back and forth, and bug fixes — inherently reducing overall cost.
Plus, don’t worry about payroll, benefits, stock options, vacation time, unemployment, termination hassle, paperwork, recruiting expenses, blah, blah, blah. We take care of that.
97% of our candidates stay on for the duration of their role, thanks to our careful matching process and supportive freelancer community.
Generic gig platforms? Blech. We have a more intentional, long-game approach to community-building.
Every platform function we build is geared towards making your talent happy. And happy talent means happy clients.
Enjoy ZERO risk with our money-back guarantee: try us for 2 weeks and if you’re not satisfied, say “sayonara.” No questions asked. (Well, we might ask about your weird Zoom background.)
PLUS get early attrition credit — if a contractor voluntarily bails from the engagement within the first 60 days, we cover the onboarding of a replacement resource.
I can’t say enough about the time and talent they have provided us. We could not have successfully delivered this project on time and with this quality without their help. I truly appreciate them. If we ever have a need for services in the future, Talentcrowd will be my first call.
Talentcrowd for life over here haha.
We're sticking with Talentcrowd.
Let us know what you need — the more details the better.
Whether it’s a single freelancer or a cross-functional team of ten, Talentcrowd can handle it.
One of our hiring experts will contact you to ask pointed questions and get an even better understanding of your exact needs.
Bingo! We'll update you within a few days. Either:
As soon as you review and sign off on our recommended freelancer(s), they’ll be ready to integrate into your team — just like an in-house employee.
While our contractors usually work remotely, arrangements can be made to have them on-site.
Post-hire, we provide support services like time management, performance monitoring, and communication tools.
What that means: your contractor is set up for max productivity, you’re set up for max transparency, and we’re set up for max bragging rights.
We call that a WIN-WIN-WIN.

Talentcrowd freelancers enjoy a buzzing Slack group, where we chat, network, and do weird stuff like talk John Hughes movies and build a Domino’s Pizza Bot.
Even amazing freelancers need guidance and feedback to keep upping their game. Our expert management team’s got their back.
We choose our clients carefully. Our freelancers know they’re working with awesome people who have a solid process and empowering culture.
Like attracts like. Our highly vetted talent pool means that our people get to network and build relationships with the creamiest of la creme.
Rates start at $90/hr. The exact rate will depend on the type of contractor you need.
Remember: you *only* pay for time worked — no benefits, no sick days, not even lunch breaks. And thanks to our contractors’ experience and expertise, there’s less time spent on each task, on back-and-forth, and on fixing bugs. So you:
How much is that worth to you? 😉
From when you submit a job, we reach out within 2 days with an update — sometimes even with a candidate. Sometimes we match, sign off, and onboard a hire for a client within 2 weeks. Sometimes it takes longer to find the Goldilocks match.
However long it takes, we’re committed to making the process as fast and hair-pulling-free as possible.
We could promise you a hard timeline — but we’d never do that, for one reason: we are committed to finding you a perfect match. An arbitrary deadline would force us to serve up mediocre matches.
We’ve got every kind of tech contractor you need:
And we can fill any type of contract: full-time, SOW, freelance, consultants, and everything in between.
Other platforms are great…if you can afford to spend hundreds of hours sifting through profiles — many of which feature unreliable or underperforming people.
And with generic platforms, you have to rely on keyword criteria, which do not take soft skills — nor other more granular tech specialties — into account.
Bottom line: if you don't know how to hire for tech, you're at risk of making expensive and time-consuming mistakes.
Our talent pool is small — and that's by design. We select only 3 of 100 freelancers who apply.
With Talentcrowd, you know you’re getting the best talent, really fast, at the most competitive rates.
If you are a good fit, we welcome you to try out our staffing services even for a small gig. We aim to become your trusted, reliable talent source for long-term partners.
