It can be extremely tough working with certain recruiters. Most don't know enough about engineering to really help you find relevant work. TRIAD, however, takes the cake on this one. TRIAD was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the job market and all things engineering. I would highly recommend working with them if you are seeking an engineering job in the MA (New England) area. They are very efficient at placing you in a position relevant to your work experience, while also focused on moving you up in your career. I can't thank them enough for the amazing service they provided. P.S. Thank you Shannon!read more

I had a great experience with TRIAD. Marissa reached out to me with the job details and we had a great conversation about my career goals, ambitions, and past experience and how they might fit into the available position that she had in mind. I could tell she had no intentions of just filling an empty spot and instead really wanted to find the ideal candidate for the role. She coordinated all of the discussions and interviews and was able to get me any information or documentation that I requested in a very timely manner. I'm so thankful for her help throughout the hiring process.read more

I had an excellent experience with Triad. As a college graduate who took a year off after graduating, I was having trouble getting interviews. I contacted Triad and started working with Shannon. She took the time to understand my wants and needs, helped me with everything from my resume to personal presentation, and very quickly acquired interviews for me. After just two or three weeks, I was offered a great opportunity and started work as a professional engineer. Not only is the staff knowledgeable, professional, and dedicated to helping you... they're also very friendly and a pleasure to work with. I can't thank Shannon enough, and I would recommend Triad to anyone!read more

Engineering Recruiting and Staffing Services

Companies today face unprecedented competition for technical talent.  To be successful, firms must have the ability to rapidly bring on key staff when the need arises.  Whether you seek contractors or to fill your challenging, full-time technical openings, TRIAD Engineering offers staffing solutions to meet your needs.

Technical and Engineering Recruiting, Staffing and Placement Agency Since 1969

TRIAD Engineering is an engineering staffing agency located in Lynnfield, MA, specializing in the contract, contract-to-direct and direct placement of engineering professionals. As a second generation, family-owned and-operated technical staffing firm, we have been bringing quality engineering professionals and employers together since 1969.

At TRIAD, we specialize in providing talented professionals in the engineering disciplines, including: engineers, designers, drafters, R & D technicians, along with other engineering support staff, within the electrical, mechanical, manufacturing, quality, test, chemical, structural, civil, environmental and HVAC/piping fields. By focusing our resources in this area for over 45 years, we have successfully built strong networks within the local community of engineering professionals.

Our clients include respected firms in the following industries: Advanced Materials, Aerospace, Architectural & Environmental, Consumer Products, Electronics, Hardware, Medical Device, Pharmaceutical, Manufacturing, Optics, Plumbing / Piping / HVAC, Power / Utility, Telecommunications, Test & Measurement.

At TRIAD, we are committed to helping our clients reach their staffing goals and our candidates reach their professional goals. As a long-standing member of the community, TRIAD has an in-depth understanding of the local marketplace required to deliver on this promise.

TRIAD is an active member of the American Staffing Association (ASA), so you can be confident knowing you’re working with professionals who are committed to the highest ethical and professional practices of the staffing industry.

A Brief History

TRIAD Engineering began operations in 1969 as one of the first design firms in the greater Boston area to offer computer-aided documentation of printed circuit designs. In addition to providing in-house design service, by the early 1970’s TRIAD was placing designers on contract assignments at client sites.

In the mid-1980’s, with a growing demand for contract technical support, TRIAD divested its computer-aided design service and began to focus solely on placing engineers, designers, and drafters on contract assignments.

Over the past two decades, TRIAD has expanded its scope of services while remaining focused on its area of expertise – recruitment for the engineering disciplines. Over 45 years of successfully serving the high-tech market has positioned TRIAD as the engineering staffing partner of choice for hundreds of New England companies.

Our Services

Companies face unprecedented competition and cost pressures in today’s markets. To be successful, organizations must have the flexibility to respond quickly to ever-changing conditions. TRIAD helps you meet that need with a full range of contract, contract-to-direct and direct hire engineering staffing services.


Our clients use contract staff to help meet tight project deadlines, supply specific technical expertise, cover extended absences of key personnel and handle fluctuations in workload. We source, screen, and refer for your consideration qualified candidates for your contract openings. Our experts are there when you need them, and for as long as you need them. You may rest easy knowing that our contractors all pass comprehensive reference and educational degree verifications and criminal background checks.

Our candidates find that contract assignments allow for diversity in both work environments and experiences. Contract lengths vary, providing opportunity for scheduled periods of time off. Pay rates are highly competitive and many contracts offer the opportunity to work with cutting-edge technology. Contracting is a particularly good way for recent college graduates to gain valuable experience.


Our clients like that contract-to-direct allows them to avoid a costly hiring mistake by assessing a candidate in an on-the-job setting before making a ‘permanent’ hiring decision. With ever-increasing employment costs, this is a great option to ensure the candidate has the desired technical expertise and personality traits necessary to excel.

Our candidates find contract-to-direct appealing because we actively market their skills and offer career options about which they otherwise would not have known. They also appreciate the opportunity to try the company out before deciding on potential direct employment.

Direct Placement

Our clients like that our direct placement services allow them to focus on their business while we identify highly qualified candidates for their challenging direct hire technical openings. Our local network enables us to recruit passive candidates who may not be seeking a new opportunity, as well as obtain professional referrals from trusted sources.

Our candidates find direct placement appealing if they are currently working in a permanent role elsewhere and when immediate access to traditional paid benefits is important. Many of our clients exclusively partner with us to fill their direct hire positions, so these opportunities cannot be found elsewhere.
