Life Sciences Staffing

With more than 25 years of pharmaceutical and biotechnology market experience, we understand the pressure our clients are under to meet regulatory and compliance directives while driving innovation and profitability.

IT staffing for the life sciences industry is a complicated practice. It involves an understanding of the processes involved in biotechnology and pharmaceutical technologies and consulting.

At The Computer Merchant, we appreciate that all IT professionals are not the same. Life sciences require a very specific type of IT knowledge related to the kinds of programs that companies use in this industry. Life sciences staffing agencies have an even greater challenge in that there are a variety of different disciplines within life sciences that require specific IT approaches. The digital needs of a biotech laboratory may be very different from the medical needs of a food science or pharmaceutical research facility.

The benefit of working with TCM is that our database is so vast and our delivery system is so wide that we can supply you with not just a life sciences IT professional, but one with specific expertise in the types of digital infrastructure your business is using.

TCM is a leading national provider of IT staffing services and managed solutions to pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms across the U.S. We help our partners build and rapidly deploy individual IT consultants and entire IT project teams for all phases of the software development lifecycle.

With more than 25 years of pharmaceutical and biotechnology market experience, we understand the pressure our clients are under to meet regulatory and compliance directives while driving innovation and profitability.

Since 2007, we have deployed over 1,000 IT consultants to our partners and their clients across the Life Sciences markets.

Life Sciences Staffing

Our life sciences IT services encompass all the benefits of biotechnology staffing agencies, medical laboratory staffing agencies and agencies that provide pharmaceutical staffing solutions. We’re able to provide more services than other life sciences staffing agencies because we’ve spent the time and money to amass the largest technical database in the U.S. staffing and workforce solutions industry.

Our state-of-the-art technological innovation when it comes to client delivery and our extensive database of IT professionals put us in a unique position to find exactly the life sciences IT expert you need for exactly as long as you need them faster than any other life sciences staffing agencies. Our goal is not just to find you an IT employee fast, but to find you the perfect fit for your needs.

We help our clients secure the services of some of the best functional and technical IT professionals with deep industry experience in the country, with expertise in Business Systems Analysis, Project and Program Management, Quality Assurance and Testing, Cyber Security, Business Continuity and Risk Mitigation, Enterprise Software Engineering and Infrastructure Engineering and Support.

TCM offers our clients the flexibility of three staffing options and back each IT professional with an 80-hour performance guarantee. Your life sciences IT needs when you’re starting your medical research or pharmaceutical company may be different from those when you’re setting up a new network or installing new software, or when your systems are already in place and you need to make sure they stay that way. Our three staffing options are available to match your needs at any given time. They include:

  1. Contract staffing: Let us help you find someone who can address your pressing life sciences IT needs without requiring a long-term commitment.
  2. Contract-to-hire: We’re so successful at finding IT professionals with just the right amount of knowledge, skill and expertise that our clients often wish to convert their contract employees to full-time hires. We’d be happy to connect you with employees who are a great fit for this path.
  3. Direct hire: You may know right now that you have a full-time position to fill if you can just find the right applicant. We’ve been matching IT professionals with permanent positions for over 30 years, and we’re confident that we can find a great long-term addition to your team.

Our technology staffing solutions are tailored to meet your unique technical and operational needs and performance expectations for quality, productivity and cost-effectiveness.


TCM pioneered the industry’s first centralized recruiting and national delivery capability in the early 1980s and has perfected it over the last 30+ years to ensure we deliver a superior level of quality, consistency, speed and price-performance for our local, regional and national clients.

TCM’s recruiting and delivery teams leverage our scalable recruiting and delivery engine, TCM Talent Deploy, our proven recruiting methodology and processes and our technical database of over 8 million skilled IT professionals to deliver the right consultant, at the right price, when and where needed, across the U.S. We build results-driven relationships fueled by our culture of full accountability and a deep commitment to client success and satisfaction.

You can’t trust your life sciences IT staffing to just any agency. Getting the wrong person for your IT support can lead to errors that hurt your reputation, delays of service or even miscues that threaten the safety of your customers. With The Computer Merchant, you can always enjoy the peace of mind of knowing you’re getting the right IT professional for the job.
