Your search starts Here
Whether you are an employer seeking top talent or a job seeker seeking the next step in your career path, Pkaza – Critical Facilities Recruiting, can set you on the path to success. Pkaza is a premier niche staffing solutions firm specializing in Mission Critical Data Center / Critical Facilities Recruiting.
Our recruiting services primarily cover North America, but we have the resources that allow us to support companies on a global level as needed in both the Public and Private Sectors. What sets us apart? Our service and our data center recruiting focus.
Hiring demand for commissioning professionals is at an all-time high as more and more data center facilities are being constructed and going online. But they can’t go live until millions of dollars of equipment has been properly tested, processes have been completed and the keys are handed over to the Owner / Operator.
The Construction field in the data center industry has been growing at breakneck speed for the past few years. Greater usage of video streaming, storing data, and the necessity for faster connection speeds for the internet, has created a high demand for critical facilities throughout the US.
Being a specialized engineer in the critical facilities / data center market can be highly lucrative and has been extremely sought after as the data center market continues to expand. It is often very challenging for many companies to find data center engineers as the demand is high.
The Operations and Maintenance (O/M) Discipline refers to the individuals that ensure data center uptime on a 7x24x365 day basis with a strong desire to reach 99.9999% uptime. These are the Technicians and Engineers working various shifts, doing walkthroughs throughout the data center.
As with most companies that hire our brave veterans that come out of the military, Pkaza is very experienced placing these candidates with our customers. A military background usually produces a responsible, disciplined, honest individual that can be trusted in an environment such as a mission critical data center facility.
The first item to address is the shortage of talented candidates in this industry. The second is the lack of diversity. The third is the lack of direction on how candidates can get into the data center space. You can’t have diversity when there is a shortage of qualified talent. However, you can have diversity when the labor pool

what people say
We have been working with Peter Kazella & Associates for over 10 years now. Their dedication to our market allows us to continue a long term relationship that is mutually beneficial. No one actively covers the recruitment of critical power talent more so then PKaza.
Peter discovered me back in 2008 and I was very comfortable working in a Colo as an IT Tech. He saw my potential and presented an engineering consulting job in data center engineering that exposed me to a whole new career which allowed me to utilize my EE degree and 15 years of experience. It really took my career and life to the next level! Thank you Peter for elevating my self-confidence and the knowledge that has led to the management position I enjoy today!
I have had the benefit of working with Pkaza for over 10+ years. First as an applicant and now as a Managing Partner. Pkaza listens to our specific needs and is able to match candidates based on their experience and personality. Our team has grown with quality commissioning engineers in locations that have benefited our clients greatly and kept us operating efficiently. Pkaza cares about their placements and the health of our organization.
My experience with Pkaza has been great. Greg Kane brought forth an opportunity that I was not even aware existed. The interactions with the Firm were very well managed and I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking or thinking of looking for a new opportunity to reach out to Greg.
I was looking to make a career change and am so grateful that Sean Bodnar from Pkaza reached out to me. He shared with me an opportunity that was exactly the type of job I was looking for. From the pre-interview to signing the offer, Sean was there to assist me all along the way. I have worked with other recruiters in the past and never received the level of professionalism and follow up as I have with Sean. Thank you, Sean, for your efforts, as I am very happy in my new career.
We were very impressed with your company’s depth of relationships in our industry. Our business has been greatly improved by the engineers you helped us hire onto our team. He has proven to be a perfect fit for our culture and an invaluable member of our team.
I had a really positive experience with Sean Bodnar at Pkaza. Out of the many recruiters who contact me regularly, he is by far the best that I have experienced. Sean is very responsive and his follow-up is exemplary. He did his best to put me in front of the right people who he thought best matched my career and for that company’s needs. I would highly recommend Sean to any data center professional looking for a new career.
I worked with Pkaza in obtaining new position and have been very pleased with their insight and knowledge of data center companies. They found me a job that was a great fit based on my background and career experience. Both Phil and Peter took a personal interest in finding the best possible solution for me. I would highly recommend them!”
Phil contacted me and within six weeks I had a job offer at a fantastic data center company. Phil kept in contact with me throughout the process and answered all of my questions. He went above and beyond to make sure that my interviewers understood my resume and abilities before I even talked to them. The data center work has been very rewarding and the fact that Pkaza works so hard to put people in these jobs is amazing. Without Phil and Pkaza, I doubt if I would have found this job that I enjoy so very much – Thank you.
My experience with Pkaza and Greg Kane have been nothing short of amazing. Greg and I discussed my background and goals and he identified opportunities that I was not aware of. The interaction with Greg was very well managed and I’m happy to say that I landed a job with a top Project Management firm as a result. I don’t think that I would have succeeded at this level without their help. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking or thinking of looking for a high-level Project Management position in the critical facility arena to contact Pkaza Critical Facilities Recruiting.
As a mission critical construction project management company, our staff is vital to our success. Pkaza consistently (and quickly) delivers candidates that are perfectly aligned with our needs, allowing us to focus on our clients and their projects.
