about us


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.


Marleen Eitzen Shanks


Marleen Eitzen Shanks started Team Red Dog (formerly Red Dog Interactive, Inc.) in 2001. Her goal was to create a staffing firm that consistently delivered on two ideals: stellar service and unflagging loyalty. Her ongoing involvement and high touch philosophy have been the foundation to making those ideals become reality.

Since then, she’s built a consulting and staffing company placing talent and teams that specialize in Marketing, Creative, Analytics, and Development. And while our high-tech clients may initially choose us based on those skills, they keep coming back for the service and loyalty that our consultants and candidates display on every placement. Today, Marleen’s energetic commitment and vision drive Team Red Dog’s continued growth as a one-of-a-kind staffing agency.
