Hatch IT connects local engineers, startups, investors, and corporate leaders who share a common vision of strengthening the startup & innovation landscape in the DMV region. Our roots can be traced to a garage in Leesburg, VA in 2013 where hatch first noticed a gap in the tech talent market. We recognized that the DC area is rich with service-based companies and talent, but product companies and startups were vying for candidates that thrived in a production-based environment. In 2015, we made the pivot from a general tech recruiting firm to a boutique partner specializing in software development, mobile development & product design recruitment for commercial product startups & small businesses in the DMV region.
