Professional recruiters often know about jobs that are not posted to websites or otherwise made public and many firms don't have the in house recruiters necessary to fill of their openings. So, it's usually a good idea to make contact with a few recruiters and have more than one set of eyeballs (yours) out there working for you. The following firms have good relationships with many of the tech companies in our area.
