Hire better-quality candidates

We use competitive intelligence, company org-charts, and data-mining platforms to recruit candidates that most other firms can't access

Fill Jobs up to 40% faster

Along with data-analytics, we use dedicated project hours to fill each job; averaging three times the hours that corporate recruiters devote to recruiting

Reduce hiring costs by 50%

Because we don't charge placement fees, the average cost to our clients is up to 50% less than agencies, and 30% less than in-house costs.


Finding the top 1% tech talent to fit your culture is our business

We find better-quality candidates because we use data-mining platforms and competitive intelligence instead of relying on job postings. And because our clients pay us hourly for our services instead of the traditional pay-per-hire model, they can count on us to screen candidates for both technical and cultural fit.


We proactively contact passive job-seekers who don't apply for jobs that other companies post, so our clients hire top talent their competitors can't find. We're experts at finding candidates for the following positions and skillsets:

Google Certified Practitioners 

AI Platform Software Architects

Full-Stack Engineers

Python Developers

Java Developers

Back-End Engineers

UX/UI Designers

AWS Certified Solutions Architects

Sr. Product Managers

Customer Success Managers

Here's how Uplink fills jobs 40% faster for half the cost of agencies

Technology-based Recruiting

We use company org-charts, data-mining platforms and sites like Stack Overflow and GitHub to recruit people who don’t otherwise apply for open jobs

Dedicated Search Hours

Our recruiters average between 16-20 

hours per week recruiting candidates for each position, ensuring a highly targeted candidate pipeline

Less Interviewing Time

In addition to using competitive intelligence to find people, we screen candidates for cultural fit. Pre-screened candidates mean less interviewing time!
