Our History

JRD Systems has grown from a Recruiting Firm into a Technology House providing IT Consulting, Managed Services, Technology Solutions and Full-Service Staffing and Recruiting to startups and Fortune 500 companies across the globe.

JRD Systems was founded in 2001, in Clinton Township, Michigan by entrepreneur, Jai Reddy. Jai studied to be a Programmer but shortly after graduation he knew that wasn’t the right fit. During his schooling, he was asked to recruit programmers for a project and it was at that point that he knew recruiting was a better fit. Jai began as a one-man-shop; recruiter in the morning, salesmen by lunch, and operations by evening. Steadily he grew the business; building relationships one-by-one and growing his team, ensuring the right people were in the right seats. Constantly innovating, leveraging technology and investing in his people, Jai was determined to continue to grow the business during the dismal economic climate of the early 2000s.

As the needs of the businesses evolved, so have we. In 2007, we expanded off-shore, opening an office in Chennai, India. It was at that same time that we became a Microsoft Gold Partner. In 2010, we received our Michigan Business Enterprise MBE Certification. Our leadership team saw potential in moving toward a more specialized staffing approach and began placing temporary workers at higher skill levels. We moved operations from Chennai to Bangalore, India in 2015 to support the increased demand for a more skilled workforce.

Our clients find value in our capability to listen to their needs and collaborate with them to come up with a solution that fits their needs. No two customers are alike, this is why we expanded our Staffing solutions into other industries: Healthcare, Administrative, Professional, and Engineering, as we are driven by the desires of our customers.

JRD Systems and Jai have always believed in understanding the customer at its core, providing tailored solutions, and exceeding expectations. As a company with a history of resilience, guided by foundational principals, we believe now more than ever to seek innovative solutions in order to grow and prosper.
