On-demand recruiting-as-a-service (RaaS).
Better qualified candidates. Zero placement fees.
Powered by data analytics and competitive intelligence,
we help growth startups scale their teams with the top 1% talent
With zero placement fees, see why tech startups are switching to Uplink
As a more cost-effective and efficient recruiting alternative, Uplinks' on-demand platform uses a project-based hourly billing model to help companies scale their workforce quickly. There are no long-term contracts, no minimums, and no placement fees!
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 five 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
AWS Certified Solutions Architects
Sr. Product Managers
Customer Success Managers
Customer Support Specialists
Territory Managers / Account Executives
Chief Technology Officers
Chief Operating Officers
Chief Information Officers
Ruby on Rails
Here's how Uplink fills jobs 40% faster for half the cost of agencies
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!
