Rockstar Coders is a U.S.-based tech staffing and recruitment company. We’re the child of a digital agency and a recruiting firm. We’ve spent years running our own projects (many as large as 10,000+ hours) and we’ve also placed talent at more than 150 companies (from venture-funded startups to large digital agencies). Plus, we’ve done staffing/hiring in just about every way and in almost every technology. As a result, we’re better than anyone else at turning your specific needs—skills, schedule, budget, etc.—into a plan that actually gets your projects done.
