The Artemis Story

The Artemis Difference

Everyone wants a candidate who will provide immense value while enhancing existing corporate culture. We call that individual a Material Impact Candidate (MIC), and we only recommend individuals who we truly believe are MIC’s.

By limiting ourselves to a select number of clients, we are able to devote the necessary time and resources to serve with the utmost attention to detail. In doing so, we develop strong relationships with our partners, earning the trust needed to generate quality hires rather than patchwork quick fixes.

The Artemis Difference
  • Our Process

    Identifying a Material Impact Candidate is no small task. To pinpoint just the right individual, we consider a person’s:

    • Technical and skill set match
    • Overall company cultural match
    • Individual team and hiring manager match

    Each item is paramount to uncovering the ideal candidate. And no, we don’t believe in two out of three.

  • Our Promise

    We don’t take our partnerships lightly. If we decide that engaging will be mutually beneficial, we work with conviction, dedication and passion to go above and beyond. Not only do we bring you the MIC, we become a brand ambassador for your company throughout the process – spreading your name and vision along the way.

  • Our Personality

    Artemis is built upon a team of highly trained, competitive, driven professionals all working cohesively to achieve success for our clients. We are creative dreamers and critical thinkers – people who understand that solving a challenge sometimes takes a foosball table (not a conference table) and a board game (not a board room).
