Uptima approached ContractRecruiter for assistance in driving growth in 2019. They were struggling to keep up with key hires which was jeopardizing their ability to maintain 30%+ revenue growth.
Because of how critical these hires were. Bill Butler (CEO) was closely involved in the search process. What made this search particularly challenging for Bill is a combination of the high degree of technical skill required. plus a strong desire for the right culture fit. In addition. his search was restricted to a highly competitive geographical area.
- Urgency: we were working on a 11-week timeline to make 4 hires
- Roles: Practice Director. Practice Manager, Solutions Architect
- Services: 1 full-cycle contract recruiter@ 40 hours per week
Immediately, Bill realized that his internal resources were insufficient in making these key hires. When ContractRecruiter partnered with Uptima and completed an assessment of their recruitment capabilities, it became clear that it was time for a new approach to solving this challenge.

Case Study, Q1 2019
Prior to learning about the ContractRecruiter.com model, Uptima used traditional staffing firms when they needed to flex their recruitment muscle. They have not had good experiences with contingency-based recruiting firms, yet did not have the internal resources to make these hires.
Q Performance Metrics:

“It was critical to us that we only hire the highest quality candidates. The continued dramatic growth in our business required a hiring spring which was well in excess of our capacity to manage internally.”
