Capstone is a privately held, certified 100% Women-Owned (WBE) staffing firm owned by Cynthia Reuter. We provide expertise to commercial companies and governmental entities nationwide. An award-winning firm (San Francisco Business Times, INC. Magazine’s List of the Fastest Growing American Companies, Staffing Industry Analysts/SIA), our quality methodology differentiates us from other firms and is responsible for our growth. We provide temporary consulting expertise, staff augmentation (contractors), contract-to-hire, payroll servicing, and full-time recruiting (FTE). Our industry knowledge spans professional, technical, analytical, and strategic roles in predominantly STEM industries.
Our quality methodology is rooted in process. We conduct a candidate two-pass screening, then summarize our assessment of the candidate’s relevant experience at the top of each resume, minimizing the screening time and assisting the hiring manager’s candidate selection. Clients attest that our summary makes the hiring process more productive, less time consuming, and increases hiring of the best qualified candidate.

Capstone’s mission is to provide the highest quality staffing and consulting expertise at reasonable rates. Our values are: transparency, integrity, and to exceed client expectations. Our seasoned staff consists of former technology and STEM professionals. We are straight forward in our work. We listen to our clients with the desire to understand their current state, challenges, expectations, and anticipated outcomes, then find the expert – whether for professional, strategy, technology, or analytical roles.

In late 2017 Capstone launches STEMCompass, a platform for students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields.  Through our innovative, patents-pending features, students from high school through PhD can explore STEM careers and discover great employers.

Capstone has received numerous local and national awards: Best Staffing Firm To Work For by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA). Capstone was the #2 Fastest Growing Company in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2013, and #27 in 2014. For 5 years now, we have been one of the Top 100 Women Businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area (SFBT). Nationally, Capstone was #250 on INC. Magazine’s INC. 500 List of the Fastest Growing Companies in the US in 2014.

Capstone thanks our clients, partners, candidates, and consultants for contributing to our growth and success.





We work with the very best. We are proud to have staffed some of the most prestigious companies in the world.
