IT Executive Recruiters

Looking for the next member of your IT executive team? Are you focusing your search in Minnesota? You’ve come to the right place.

SkyWater Search Partners is the leading IT executive search firm in Minnesota. This is because we have a specialized group of executive recruiters that focus on the information technology space. Our focus is to find and secure the best IT executive talent for our client’s specific business needs. Our detailed sourcing and evaluation process results in clients only seeing top-tier candidates – their short list.

We’ll find, vet, and secure talent with the skill set you’re looking for – but we won’t overwhelm you with a multitude of candidates. You’ll only see your best choices based on your specific requirements. Our goal is to make the IT recruiting and hiring process more focused, efficient, and effective.

What We Hear From Our Clients:

  • We need fresh talent that has had exposure to a variety of technologies.
  • We can teach the ways of our business, but we need someone who can come in and contribute right away.
  • Our short-list promise is backed with data: In 2018, for every 3 candidates interviewed, one is hired.
  • We’re having trouble finding someone who not only has the technical capabilities for the role, but also excels in soft skills, and is a good fit for our company culture.


Why SkyWater?

  • We not only thoroughly screen each IT candidate ourselves but also use our extensive network and resources to test a candidate’s technical ability. This ensures that every candidate our client sees has the necessary experience to be successful in the open role.
  • The best candidates want to utilize their full skill set and know that they’re making an impact. We have access to those candidates.
  • In 2018, 85% of our clients returned to partner with us on additional roles.
  • We need a higher caliber candidate. Today, sifting through applications is time-consuming and not fruitful.
  • To ensure we understand the culture of a company, we meet with the decision-makers and hiring managers to gain an understanding of your company’s culture and goals.

“Alex has been one of the best recruiters I’ve worked with. Always appreciate chatting with him and hearing his insight. He really understands the job requirements and finds qualified candidates. He never wastes my time. I appreciate the “introduction” emails where Alex lists the things he likes about the candidates. He gives me a good idea of who I’ll be chatting with. Additionally, my impressions mostly align with his after initial conversations. He keeps me up-to-date with where the candidates are at. Both in terms of how they’re feeling about our interview process as well as where they’re at in other interview processes. Alex checks in at the right cadence.”
