Your National Resource

The software & hardware engineering space is a highly competitive marketplace. Our clients are working to develop the next generation technologies that change how everyone uses technology. From how people connect and interact to technologies that simply make life easier.

From large-scale system design to the creation of the hardware required to support the world, our team of software & hardware recruiters understand the inner workings of the requirements needed to support you.

Because of our unique process, we work with clients to understand the full scope of their assignment. We want to know what makes things work, so we can attract the talent that makes things work.



With over 15 years’ experience working specifically in Software & Hardware Engineering, we bring the value of domain experience, industry knowledge, and most importantly the software & hardware recruiting know how to be able to relate client roles and candidate ability.

We are not an overall technology staffing firm; we are focused on Software & Hardware Engineering. This offers us the ability to train our teams beyond the surface that most firms do. We bring in actual software engineers and hardware engineers to train our team. We vet talent at a level that not only our clients expect, but that our candidates expect.

Candidates don’t want to talk with someone that does not understand their world. We call it C.A.R.E. –Carlton Always Recruits Excellence. We mean it. We want to meet junior talent that is on the rise, but the reality is that we primarily work with 5 –10+ year veterans. We are building relationships to support our candidates long-term and provide those relationships to our clients that demand great people.



We are “Your National Resource” for locating, vetting and assigning the best of the best.

Whether you are a current or potential client or candidate, our team puts its focus on partnering the right resource with right opportunity. Quickly, Efficiently and Effectively. Every Time.

Hear What Our Consultants & Clients Are Saying

It has been a great pleasure working with Carlton National Resources over the last 6 years. The recruiter stuck with me to get me plugged into the ideal position, and since then they have continued working for my success. I have been employed with five other contract houses and have interviewed with hundreds and Carlton stands out for valuing relationships.

"When transitioning from an employee to a contractor for the first time, Carlton National made the process easy and painless. Their staff has been prompt and thorough in every communication. Later on, when it came time to negotiate a raise with the client, I had complete confidence as Carlton National represented me in handling all of the particulars to help me achieve the best outcome. I highly recommend contracting through this agency."

I have known Fred for over 10+ years. This is my second time working through Carlton National and Fred. He has his pulse on the defense industry and in my case the software aspect of consulting. Carlton is great to work with and provides an easy friendly business experience. Fred is on an extremely short list when I need to find work. I hope that I can finish my career with them.

I have worked with Carlton National for my staffing needs for 3+ years. They are consummate professionals, and have helped me out numerous times. Resumes for highly qualified people have been provided very quickly, some as soon as a few hours. Their attention to detail to what my needs are in order to successfully complete my projects are very much needed and appreciated.

I highly recommend the Carlton National team!
