IT staffing agency

Inside track

Copperstone has cultivated a niche within a niche. Within the IT space, it exclusively recruits hard-to-find talent for data-related jobs, such as in business intelligence and data warehousing. The firm has resisted the temptation to dilute its focus by expanding into other IT subniches, even ones as hot as web and mobile apps.
