About Technical Connections

Technical Connections, Inc. (TCI) is the premier recruiting firm specializing exclusively in technology professionals. We offer a full range of services, including retained search, contingency placement, and short- and long-term consulting.

Founded in 1984 by Helen MacKinnon, an executive with extensive technical and managerial experience in the computer industry, TCI initially focused on serving clients in Southern California within the software development field. Today, under the leadership of our CEO, Scott MacKinnon, we work with companies in a variety of industries across the U.S., from start-ups to international corporations.

Unlike many staffing agencies, TCI has always specialized in tech. TCI’s recruiters do not consider themselves “headhunters,” but rather professional consultants with the interpersonal skills, technology and business expertise, and market knowledge to offer candidates and clients a rare level of strategic counsel.

Technical Connections is 100% employee owned. We believe that when all employees have an ownership stake in their company, it is reflected in the quality of their work and therefore in the long-term success of the firm. Our employees have an ownership interest in the firm through the Technical Connections Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). TCI contributes annually to a trust account for the benefit of the employees.

Let our team show you what we’re capable of – you won’t be disappointed.
