Lightwell Expands IT Staffing and Recruiting Services with New Pittsburgh Office

Through its new Pittsburgh location, Lightwell aims to help companies in Western Pennsylvania fill technical positions with high quality candidates.

Dublin, Ohio – August 29, 2016 – Striving to provide companies the right IT talent when and where they need it, Lightwell ( has announced the opening of its new Pittsburgh office.  Through the new location, the company will help Greater Pittsburgh area organizations fill temporary and permanent IT positions with highly qualified candidates, and will assist skilled IT consultants who are seeking new career opportunities.

IT Staffing and Professional Placement services have been core services provided by Lightwell since its early days in the 1990’s. Their leadership team recognized that the process and cost of finding and hiring IT candidates – from ad placement, networking, reviewing resumes, interviewing, assessing technical skills, and checking references – can be overwhelming for many companies. Furthermore, they recognized that mistakes in hiring can be costly in terms of delays, errors, poor work quality, and turnover, and wanted to help clients avoid these issues.

Since then Lightwell has assisted many large companies, government organizations, and mid-sized companies address their IT talent gaps with a range of services, including: IT staff augmentation services for staffing new projects and assisting during peak or vacation times; IT professional placement for hiring key positions; and consulting services for specific projects.

Chad Young, Senior Vice President of Staffing and Strategic Initiatives, Oxford Consulting Group“At a time where many IT staffing and recruiting firms are focused on speed at the expense of quality, we remain dedicated to providing superior quality candidates that are the right fit for our customers’ unique needs,” said Chad Young, Lightwell’s Senior Vice President. “By building long-term relationships with our clients and leveraging our proven recruiting, screening and development processes, we are able to make a great match that yields higher retention rates, greater satisfaction and a higher return on investment.”

The new Pittsburgh office, located at 1301 Ashwood Drive, Canonsburg, PA 15317, will be headed up by Senior Sales Director Jeff Thompson, a veteran of nearly 20 years in Pittsburgh-based IT recruiting and staffing. IT staffing needs filled through this location include:

  • IT Project Management
  • Business and Technical Analysis

“We’re excited about our expansion into the Pittsburgh area,” continued Young. “Not only will the new location help us better serve Lightwell’s current clients that are located in the area, but will also enable us to better reach companies who need specific, high-quality IT skills but struggle to find them on their own today.”
