"Something in the Orange Radio" on Spotify

Why do you love search?: 
"I love that the search process allows me to foster long-lasting relationships. I thrive when given the opportunity to understand and embrace people and their stories (with both clients and candidates). Witnessing these connections evolve and grow over time (and learning a TON along the way) is a privilege."

Carly Livingstone

Areas of Expertise:

Senior leadership roles across the org chart

Go-To Office / WFH Playlist:

House or Electronic Focus playlists. I need a vibey beat!

Why do you love search?: 
"I love every part of matchmaking! The challenge of a needle-in-a-haystack search, the gut feeling I get when I know I've found "the one" for my client, the relationships we build with leaders who are navigating all of the complexities that come with a big career & life decision...it is all a privilege and one we don't take lightly.

There is also something very cool about looking back at a growth-stage tech company and knowing I played a small role in creating the dream team that took them to the next level."

Negin Safdari

Recruiting & Search Enablement Lead

Why do you love search?: 
"I love stories: Hearing and telling them. That's what we do all day long. We hear candidate stories and tell client stories, looking for the sweet spot where they align to help them build a new story, together."

Ashley Gallant

Executive Recruitment Consultant

Years at Artemis: 
2.5 years at Artemis


Areas of Expertise:

I love engineering, design, and marketing searches - I really enjoy working with creatives, tinkerers, and builders

Go-To Office / WFH Playlist:

Lofi Hip Hop or Jazz

Why do you love search?: 
"I love the magic of matchmaking. The best is hearing someone say "This is my dream role", and having our clients feel that we exceeded their expectations on whom we introduced them to. It's exciting to work closely and strategically with founders and exceptional leaders in tech.

Growing up, I always wanted to be a spy (Spy Kids & Nancy Drew, anyone?) - so sleuthing around to find the perfect candidate and knowing enough about complex tech to be dangerous feels like the next best thing."

Tara Stevens

Areas of Expertise:

HR/People and Culture

Go-To Office / WFH Playlist:

"Warm Fuzzy Feeling" on Spotify

Why do you love search?:

It's a dynamic field that combines human interaction, learning, and strategic thinking, making each day really rewarding and impactful!"
