Contract To Hire & Direct Hire Staffing Services

As your technology staffing solutions partner, we can help you better plan your staffing requirements, recruit hard‐to‐find IT talent, shorten learning curves for new technologies and reduce payroll and benefits costs. Our contract staffing, contract-to-hire, and direct hire services provide you with staffing solutions that are individually tailored to suit your unique needs and are proven to create and maintain a high standard of quality and productivity.

Contract Staffing

In IT, nothing is guaranteed. Priorities change, budgets get slashed, and fire-fighting is a daily occurrence. Yet, somehow, you are still expected to get work done on time and within budget.

At The Computer Merchant, we take a strategic approach to IT staffing. During our contract staffing process, we will work with you to evaluate your hiring needs based on the technology results and business outcomes you must achieve, plan proactive recruiting strategies, and ensure you will have on-demand access to technology consultants with the skills and experience you require.

Technology Staffing Services

We are proud to consistently rank well above the IT staffing industry average for IT talent reutilization. We are able to do this by building and maintaining relationships with the best IT talents we have placed over the years. For our clients, this means the provision of proven talent with the skills and work ethics to fit smoothly within your organization.

We Understand Your Business

In over 38 years, we have amassed deep expertise in a broad range of industries, including technologybusiness services, consumer goods, retail, healthcare, banking and financial services, government and higher education, oil and gas, telecommunications, pharmaceutical and many more.

With a recruiting staff of more than 25 expert and specialized technical recruiters – many with over a decade of IT recruiting experience, we are confident we understand your industry and the IT challenges it faces. We also possess a cumulative wealth of IT knowledge to find, qualify and deploy the best available IT professionals anywhere in the U.S.

We Get the Job Done

Our functional and technical professionals span a wide range of leading edge technologies and key responsibilities such as Business Systems Analysis, Business Intelligence and Data Analytics, Enterprise Application Design and Software Development, Cyber Security, Cloud, Database, ERP, Legacy Systems, Network and Systems Infrastructure, Project and Program Management, QA Testing and Web Services.

As part of our contract staffing program, we provide:

  • Complete pre-screening and technical vetting
  • Reference checks
  • Pre-project orientation
  • Client-specific onboarding and off boarding
  • Financial and budgetary planning
  • And we strive to deliver within 48 hours!

We are confident that our technical and functional IT consultants are the best available and we back each placement with an unconditional 80-hour performance guarantee.


When one of our IT consultants is converted to a permanent full-time employee, we consider it the highest compliment our clients can pay us because it validates the quality and performance we work hard to deliver. Every contract-to-hire employee is a reminder to keep providing you with the highest quality IT staffing services.

Some of our clients want the option of a permanent full-time employee but the assurance of getting exactly the right IT professional for their position and company culture. TCM will help you plan and achieve this staffing solution that is beneficial to both you, the customer, and the IT professional.

Direct Hire

Looking for permanent full-time employees? We can help. TCM takes the guessing out of finding the right people to fill these critical positions.

We work closely with our clients to understand not only the technical and industry qualifications required for a role, but also the soft skills, those behavioral qualities that define a good cultural fit for an organization.

TCM has been placing permanent IT professionals in companies across a wide array of industries since the 1980s.
