We are known for award-winning software by some of our customers, but others think of Stout Systems as their go-to resource for technical recruiting and staffing services.
Since the dot com boom times of the 1990s, Stout has provided temporary staffing services and direct-hire recruiting services to companies ranging from small non-profits to Fortune 100s.
We excel at finding technology professionals for all aspects of software development and IT.
Our veteran Tech Talent team will be engaged directly with you throughout the recruiting process, from the intake call, to presenting candidates to you, and right through to the offer negotiation.

Where that isn’t possible, Stout Systems assists its personnel in their job search.
As the employer, Stout Systems pays for Workers Comp, federal and state unemployment insurance and all other mandated taxes and fees.
