Your Sacramento staffing agency alternative

Job opportunities in the Sacramento area have steadily increased over the last several years. And, as the capital of the world’s seventh largest economy, Sacramento is poised for even more growth.

Government, real estate-related industries, and agribusiness have been the economic backbone of the area. Recently, industries such as clean energy technology, biotechnology, and medical device manufacturing have gained momentum.

Plus, due to the ever-increasing cost of living in Silicon Valley, there’s been an influx of tech start-ups. Companies like Avere Inc., Bizhaven, Sunstock Inc., and SynGen now have Sacramento offices. Even established Bay Area companies have opened branches in Sacramento hotspots like the River District, the Docks Waterfront area, and the Natomas community.

All this movement equates to a surge in open positions. Job postings for project managers with IT engineering and DevOps experience are on the rise. New job listings for freelancers with creative and design backgrounds pop up daily. And sales and marketing professionals are a hot commodity. In fact, that’s probably one of the reasons you’re here on the Talent Scout website. You’re looking for top talent with those exact skill sets.

Fortunately, you’ve landed in the right place. Talent Scout is an innovative Sacramento staffing agency alternative on the leading edge of remote worker recruitment.

Our recruiters have immediate access to experienced, pre-screened professionals. By tapping into Upwork’s worldwide marketplace, your Talent Scout recruiter can connect you with in-demand global talent at the top of their fields. In less than a week, you’ll receive a shortlist of qualified candidates. Something that can take several weeks using a traditional employment agency. Plus, our staffing solutions are more budget-friendly compared to the premium fees temp agencies charge.

What types of talent can I find on Talent Scout?

Home to first-rate institutions like UC Davis and Sacramento State, the River City’s talent pool has a consistent flow of new industry experts and graduating professionals. There’s also Stanford University, just south of San Francisco. Stanford’s computer science program ranks second in the nation, adding to the deluge of diverse and top-tier talent.

In addition to young, motivated job seekers, Upwork’s far-reaching freelancer network attracts professional contractors with years of experience. Our staffing solutions may connect you with someone who’s completed projects for a Sacramento-based Fortune 500 company such as CSC, Elevance Health, or Wells Fargo.

Our experienced Talent Scout recruiters tap into a pool of vetted remote workers who specialize in the following areas:

IT and Software Engineering

Northern California’s tech industry boom isn’t about to slow down anytime soon. To stay ahead of the curve, you may need to quickly scale an entire team. Our dynamic staffing services are designed to do just that. Your Talent Scout’s expertise in identifying top talent, combined with Upwork’s global reach and the savvy use of machine learning, gets results fast. With conventional staffing agencies, you may have to wait up to four weeks. 

Your Talent Scout recruiter will get back to you in less than a week with a shortlist of qualified candidates. Then it’s up to you to direct hire your team. With a list of DevOps architects, front-end developers, data scientists, and IT security specialists, you’ll have no problem creating a top-notch remote IT team.

Design and Creative

Whether you’re looking for a remote contractor for a one-off or need to engage someone full-time for a long-term project, Talent Scout can help. Our recruiters can quickly curate a list of talented creatives eager to start their next job. 

From art directors and illustrators to web designers and copywriters, we’ve got the talent you need. You may even connect with a designer who’s done work for innovative tech start-ups like SkySlope or GRIN.

Marketing

Online shopping, social media, and email drip campaigns have changed the marketing landscape. Today, the latest jobs in the marketing space require a more tech-oriented touch. A partnership with Talent Scout guarantees you’ll have access to the best and brightest talent. As a Sacramento staffing agency alternative, Talent Scout connects clients with freelance SEO specialists, E-commerce content specialists, digital marketers, and social media specialists. 

You may find yourself collaborating with former freelance account managers from great companies like Salesforce in San Francisco, Oracle in Redwood City, and Empire Home Loans in Fair Oaks.

Use Talent Scout to Find a Sacramento Freelancer

A bustling economy often means businesses need to expand to keep up. They need flexible staffing solutions to keep moving at full speed. When Sacramento companies need to quickly scale their teams without overwhelming their human resources department, traditional staffing agencies may not be the answer.

Frequently asked questions

What's the difference between Talent Scout and a Sacramento staffing agency?

Our professional recruiters have the resources to help companies navigate their increasingly complex staffing needs. With access to Upwork’s global work marketplace, recruiters can easily locate candidates with even the most specialized of skills. Conventional staffing agencies often have more limited choices of readily available and suitable candidates. 

This means you may have to wait several weeks, sometimes more than 30 days. Aided by machine learning, Talent Scout recruiters provide their clients with a shortlist in three to five days.
