Bandwidth’s team of talent advisors can help scale your team during uncertain times via our virtual recruiting approach and help you determine what current talent you should keep versus release.
We offer a parallel approach to help accelerate your recruiting and hiring process while at the same time addressing any bigger issues impacting your growth and internal team. When time is not on your side, our team can jump in, prioritize, and get started right away.
- Have you already let your internal recruiters go? We can drop in a fully operating recruiting team or offer a part-time recruiting solution option to help you weather a downturn. All of our build and optimize offerings can be dialed-up or down as needed to meet your ever-changing talent needs.
- Maybe you have furloughed your team but you still need to replace key roles. Let us jump in and keep things on track. We can help you assess internal talent, while still working to fill tough roles.
- Dramatically build on or begin a pipeline of qualified candidates through Research and Sourcing support so when you’re hiring gets turned back up again, you have a deep talent pool to recruit from.
Build & Scale also includes change management, content, training, and materials to help you and your team:
- Embrace new talent, workforce management, and unexpected changes

A candidate’s first interaction with your company is often with a recruiter or a hiring manager. Is their first impression the best it can be? Every interaction has the power to make or break a hire.

Bandwidth’s dedicated team and hands-on approach led to increased candidate quality yet our recruiting costs dropped.
Bandwidth helped us find talent to fill multiple roles across multiple cities, including senior leadership positions that were key to our growth. The team there is friendly and responsive, and they put in effort to learn the nuances of our culture so they could help us find the right fit.
I credit Bandwidth for helping us build a team that set us up for long-term success. They found top engineering talent and helped sell them on the vision and potential of our company, long before our success was assured. They are an ideal partner for companies looking to grow.
Having focused first on creating a foundation for recruiting infrastructure, the recruiting process itself is a lot smoother and we hired very high caliber people.
Bandwidth helped us meet our engineering hiring goals on an aggressive timeline. And as our needs have changed, they’ve been able to adapt and flex to support our various stages of growth.
The Best Practices that (Bandwidth) brought to us are paying off and will continue to pay off. This is a huge value to us now and in the long-term. You have set us up for success.
SCCA heard about Bandwidth through word of mouth. Along with my other colleagues, we’ve been using their recruiting services. They really understood the qualities we were looking for and identified excellent candidates for us to make our hire.
We hired Bandwidth to build our Seattle office, and they were instrumental in helping scale our team. Their expertise across all aspects of the recruiting life cycle allowed us to quickly get ramped up and become relevant in the Seattle market.
I stick with Bandwidth because they are committed to learning my business and learning what I value in people to make my business successful. They’re not playing a numbers game with me. That’s why.
