Formerly Red Dog Interactive, we’ve changed our name to TEAM RED DOG to better help reflect the collaborative spirit of our amazing recruiters, employees, and clients.

We focus on creating custom staffing solutions for tech-focused companies. In addition to pinpointing specialized talent and teams for contracting positions, we now assist our clients to find the right permanent employees as well.

Team Red Dog's hiring team is made up of seasoned hiring professionals with rich backgrounds in marketing, creative, analytics, and development as well as Fortune 500 and tech industry career experience. We've got the depth and drive to match the right candidate with the right position.

Because matching jobs with people is both an art and a science.
