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. However, 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 Pkaza 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 getting constructed and going online. However, they can’t go live until millions of dollars of equipment have been properly tested, processes have been completed and the keys are handed over to the Owner / Operator.
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.
