1st St. NW Technical Staffing

Our Story

Contrary to popular belief, 1st St. NW isn’t a folksy small-town bank. Or an idyllic tree-lined road.

It’s the Upper Midwest’s premier technical staffing firm.

At 1st St. NW, we’ve been matching the best technical talent with the best technical companies since 1986. The key to our longevity? Loyalty. In an industry where quick turnover is the norm, we’re a bunch of wily veterans.

Our four principal owners have a combined 100+ years of technical staffing experience with 1st St. NW alone. And because we’re employee-owned, we all take a great deal of pride in what we do.

From Engineers to CAD Drafters / Designers to Technicians to Programmers, we help our clientele find fulfilling careers in a plethora of technical disciplines including Architectural, Structural, Civil, Geotechnical, Mechanical, Electrical, Manufacturing, Quality, and IT / Software – to name just ten.

And when it comes to staffing solutions, we offer contract, contract to direct, and direct hire solutions to fit all your hiring needs. Not to mention health insurance and a 401K match for our contract employees.

So whether you’re looking for the perfect job or the perfect candidate, let 1st St. NW do the legwork to save you time and money. Believe it or not, we actually like legwork.

What can we say – we’re unique.

Just like that quirky name of ours.
