New IT Staffing Agency Breed Connects Entertainment Industry Companies with Tech Talent


Breed, a technical staffing agency focused on recruiting tech talent for careers in the entertainment industry, has launched in Los Angeles. A division of IT specialist GPL Technologies, Breed connects motion picture studios, gaming companies, visual effects houses, postproduction facilities and other creative service providers with engineers, IT and pipeline specialists and programmers.

Many companies lack the resources to conduct an effective search for technical talent and may not have the expertise to evaluate the qualifications of job candidates.

“The concept for Breed was born out of our clients’ need for specialized engineering talent,” explained GPL Technologies CEO Brian Terrell. “We know engineering. We also understand our clients’ businesses, so it’s only natural for us to offer them this service.”

Breed provides three types of staffing service: direct placement (permanent, full-time positions), contract staffing (short- and long-term temporary positions), and contract-to-hire (temporary positions with an option for permanent hire). The agency conducts a global job search, pre-screens candidates according to the employer’s criteria, and connects the best qualified candidates with the employer for final consideration.

All candidates are subject to both technical and cognitive testing. “We practice a holistic approach toward talent assessment,” explained Breed head recruiter Jonathan Borunda. “We evaluate individuals for such factors as autonomy, energy level and emotional intelligence. We look at the whole person. That leads to smarter hiring and reduced turnover. It’s better for employers and employees.”
