Our Process

Discovery
 

We engage with your team to comprehend your history, vision, growth plans, and the distinct dynamics of your culture. We familiarize ourselves with your stories, your team, and the challenges and opportunities you encounter.

 

This enables us to effectively represent your organization to candidates and view potential fit from your perspective. We assist in refining your position description, ensuring it serves as a compelling marketing and communication tool while maintaining consistent language and evaluation throughout the process.

Research:

All of our searches require intensive research into the unique talent market, along with a high-touch and relationship-based approach to the entire recruitment process. We have the advantage of an extensive global network that we leverage while also conducting new research to uncover the top talent in relevant regions, vertical markets and specific companies.  

Directly Engaging Candidates & Delivering your Message: 

 

As your brand ambassador, we take the responsibility of conveying your company story and leadership opportunity to a select group within your industry. We prioritize building exceptional teams, which begins with establishing trustworthy and genuine connections with every candidate. We not only communicate your story but also invest time in understanding the candidate's background, motivations, and requirements. This approach allows us to present your opportunity in the most favourable manner while ensuring the best possible match for your team.

Candidate Evaluations:

 

We aim to attract and engage exceptional candidates while ensuring an ideal fit for both them and your business. We conduct multiple informal interviews with candidates, evaluating their experience, capabilities, leadership style, values, and motivators. We also gather insights from formal and informal references.
 

Managing the Process & Ensuring the Best Outcome: 

 

We prioritize the candidate experience and act as your representatives throughout the evaluation and negotiation process, ensuring favourable outcomes for both the company and the candidate. We invest significant time with each candidate, presenting a comprehensive evaluation including motivations and fit considerations. Our target is to present a handful of highly qualified, diverse, and motivated candidates. We facilitate an efficient selection process that allows all decision makers, including the candidate, to confidently assess fit. Our offer negotiation processes are transparent and focused on achieving the best outcomes.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Petra Pohl
EVP Corporate Operations

Cognitive Systems logo.png

What stands out the most about working with Artemis is the time the team spends getting to know our company and the key players in order to convey the Cognitive story. The Artemis team has talent for generating enthusiasm about our company and the opportunity, in many cases where candidates weren’t planning on making a move.

Sheldon Fernandez
CEO

Artemis provided us not only with an incredible pool of talent to choose from, but truly paid attention to what we needed. In searching for a CTO and VP of Product, we needed a partner to locate individuals who met our exceptionally high standards, which was a big challenge in this market. Moreover, they also needed to be a cultural fit which wasn’t easy, but Artemis found us two incredibly exceptional employees who are great people; kind, cooperative, zero ego and that is rare.

Mike Rossi
Founder & CEO

We’ve worked with Artemis for a number of roles, including several members of our executive team! It was a no-brainer to partner with Artemis on these searches; their team is super organized, very in tune with the market, and highly effective in conversations with senior executives. They’ve helped us with our most important hires and I would highly recommend them to other growing tech companies.
