Scott River Company is Expanding!
In addition to representing ourselves, we are still the premiere white glove agency in Silicon Valley, we have invested in and co-founded another exceptional company:
RightSource www.rightsourceplus.com, offers top notch consultants from Mexico, who can work on-site or remotely. Their sweet spot is outsourced agile projects in their México City office, but where the project manager commutes back and forth. It offers the best of all worlds, top talent, hard to find skills, great value, speed, quality, Central time zone, and even surprisingly excellent communication skills. Not only do they compete favorably with any off-shore agency, (in 20 years of selling software, Scott Cochran has never recommended an off shore agency since he has seen virtually all of them fail), even on all the metrics listed above, RS competes favorably with most of the projects I have seen in Silicon Valley. The secret is the fact that Mexico in under tapped and our partners are very well connected to the top schools and talent. In this hot market, it is clearly the best choice. SRC has sold multiple projects to multiple clients, every one has led to extensions, referrals and requests for more work.
And, of course, Scott River Company; the market has changed, so we have adapted. We have augmented our key differentiating feature, our massive 10,000 person database, with agreements with other seasoned recruiters (typically working day jobs at large corporations) who also have thick rolodexes. In an age where most every other recruiter is trying to email Indeed resumes or inmail LinkedIn contacts with every more frequency and futility, having relationships with quality consultants is critical. We have a network of tried and true consultants, many of whom refuse to work with any other consulting company, and when we have projects, we call their cell phones and discuss, so 2014. But the real differentiating feature is our ability to solve problems. Finding top talent is a tough problem, and tough problems are best suited for highly resourceful people. The consolidation of recruiting has made it very easy to keep busy, or get a fast and poor result, but it creates the illusion of a single magic solution, and there simply isn’t one. (Ask us for stories!) Finding top people is a tough scrounge, and the best results come from those able and willing to do it.
