Devlin and Chip have both used the over 40 combined years in the San Diego market place to their advantage, helping their clients meet critical project deadlines, or in filling their open-and often extremely difficult to find-positions. In early 2013, they branched out on their own and launched CDM Technology–mainly because they wanted to use their unique combination of sales and recruiting exposure to their advantage and create their own national brand of IT consulting, contracting, and recruiting. They both pride themselves on taking the time to fully understand their client’s needs and then provide them with the appropriate resources. They have always sought out to work with the companies who are looking for the *best* talent that they otherwise can’t find themselves. In 2020, they got lucky…and convinced an old, dear friend in Kyle Concannon to come on board and bring his exceptional recruiting capabilities to the company. Late that year, they hired Kellen Waters, who has quickly risen to the top of the recruiting force in the Mid West. Together, they all know who they are, and they don’t pretend to be anything that they’re not when it comes to finding their clients short term, project based, or long term resources. It’s their years of experience building a trusted network of resources that their clients are tapping into. The fact that they take care of their clients and candidates in such an exceptional manner…well, that just makes the experience of working with CDM Technology feel so seamless.
