Engineering Staff Augmentation

CONSULTANTS WHO PROVIDE UNIQUE VALUE

When you need to take advantage of our staff augmentation services, we work hard to find the right highly qualified engineer to match your existing methodology and process, resulting in the most efficient teambuilding possible. Our U.S.-based engineers serve as consultants, providing specific expertise to help your team tackle tough problems.

All candidates are thoroughly vetted by senior Encore Semi engineers before undergoing your screening process. We can complete our due diligence (search and qualification) in as little as a week—because we understand your need for our expertise is typically urgent.

Each engagement is structured to meet your specific needs:
  • Short term or long term, two weeks to two years
  • Project focused, or problem focused
  • Engineers hit the ground running, eliminating the learning curve

Encore Semi is an extension of your technical resource pool ready to meet your most dynamic project schedule and resource needs. Here’s how our proven “Search, Qualification, and Program Management” process works:

Search

If our existing engineers on staff are not available or if they are not in the right location or have technical skills needed for your project we use our in-house recruiting team to find potential candidates.

Qualification

These candidates are then screened by Encore Semi technical personnel or outside consultants, on occasion, to insure the selected candidates meet our customer’s technical and interpersonal requirements. This process insures that we save our customers time sorting through multiple unqualified resumes.

Program Management

Once our resources are assigned, Encore Semi offers program management insures that our engineers are meeting customer expectations throughout the project. Once again, the goal is save our customers time dealing with technical or personal issues that may arise throughout the project.
