IT Staffing


Considering that it can cost up to $18,000 to hire a permanent employee, it’s not surprising that many
forward-thinking IT departments today rely on strategic staff augmentation to meet their dynamic staffing needs
while maintaining favorable cost structures.

Under a staff augmentation model, the cost of ramp up for short-term requirements and ramp down once those
requirements have been met can more than offset the higher cost of hiring permanent employees. Moreover,
staff augmentation:

● Requires minimal contracting effort
● Has a simple cost model (rate x hours worked)
● Can scale up or down quickly
● Has minimal impact on the existing operating model of an IT organization.

Over the past 20 years, SMX has developed a solid reputation for cost-effectively delivering highly skilled
consultants when and where our clients need them most. With customers ranging in size from startups to
Fortune 500 enterprises, we understand the shifting demands for talented IT professionals in the development

with particular expertise in the following three categories: Applications, Development & Network Support.

Our focus lies in helping our clients preserve and improve their competitive advantage by cost-effectively
delivering highly-skilled consultants and project-oriented teams when and where they are needed most and in
working closely with them to address core and non-core technical & IT resource requirements with contract,
contract-to-hire and direct hire recruiting services. We invite you to see the difference working with us makes.

Staffing Types

  • ”Contract”
  • ”Contract-to-Hire”
  • ”Direct-Hire”
SMX Contract Services are a perfect solution for companies that experience frequent fluctuation in the need for technical resources. As projects begin to ramp up, SMX is there to supplement the necessary technical resources to complete the job. As projects are completed and inventory begins to slow down, SMX handles the discontinuation of existing contracts. With Contract Services, SMX and the company agree on an hourly bill rate and an expected duration of the contract. Once the contract is started, SMX handles all human resource functions including payroll generation and distribution, payroll tax withholding, state and federal reporting requirements and employer related insurance administration.
Contract-to-Hire Services are very similar to Contract Services with the exception that it is normally the intention of the company to hire the SMX consultant at some point in the future. Contract-to-Hire Services give the company the ability to monitor the work performance of a Consultant prior to making a formal offer of employment. With Contract-to-Hire Services, SMX and the company agree on an hourly bill rate for the Contract period, the date the Consultant will be converted to a regular employee of the company, a minimum number of hours the Consultant must work as a SMX Consultant prior to conversion, and/or a conversion fee which is payable to SMX once the Consultant is actually converted to regular employee status with the company.
SMX Direct Hire Services are a perfect solution for companies that need technical resources internally but may lack the recruiting expertise or resources to attract ideal candidates. SMX can also do the job that our client can’t, namely seeking out those top performers who are gainfully employed at there current company and not actively seeking to change jobs. We are able to recruit these people for you by selling them on benefits of working for your company. Direct Hire Services give companies the ability to immediately hire SMX Consultants as internal employees. With Direct Hire Services, SMX and the company agree on the terms of the Direct Hire placement which typically include the fee percentage and a guarantee provision should the Consultant not work out.
