By valuing quantity over quality, IT staffing agencies have set a low bar in a highly technical, rapidly changing, fast-growing field that desperately requires competency. They get it wrong, again and again, and they ask, “what’s next?” Whether we’re talking to a job seeker or a company looking for a solution, at Dynamo, we ask “why?” Then we ask it again. And again. And we don’t make a move until we know the answer. This understanding, this process of going deeper, allows us to focus on something truly radical — getting it right the first time.
Talk. Discover. Go. It’s how we get you from here to done.
