High Quality Staff Augmentation for a Large Government Agency

Problem Statement:

Our client, a very large federal government agency involved in media regulations, had an urgent need for a Senior/Lead MuleSoft Developer, as well as needs for engineers with several other software development skills (Full-Stack Engineers, etc.). The MuleSoft role had been urgently needed for weeks with no success in finding a proper candidate, and the client’s time was running low as backlog built up.


By relying on our deep connectivity to national technology talent networks, social media, relationships built through past engagements, and talent sourcing technologies which we employ, we were able to source, screen, and submit a candidate for the urgent Mulesoft position within 24 hours of being introduced to that need. 24 hours after that, our client had a newly hired, expert Mulesoft Lead. We also went on to support this client for a volume of other positions, and continue to do so presently. 

Tech Stack: Mulesoft, Java, JavaScript, Angular, ReactJS, Node.JS, more
