Leadership and Results

We have the courage and experience to lead our clients and consultants through positive change. We do not employ bots to provide endless stacks of resumes for ‘potentially qualified’ candidates that you must sift through. We do the hard work and advise as a partner in the process. Trying to react quickly to open jobs in today’s labor market, horizontal, generalist recruiters rarely win.

We advise clients on what works and adjust with them before valuable time is wasted interviewing undesirable candidates.

Time is money – and we align ourselves with hiring managers to make sure we get it right – the first time. Being merely “qualified” for a role doesn’t mean a first-place finish in today’s competitive job market.  

Smartech Talent Solutions Core Values

  • Sincerity – We approach our clients as a trusted advisor, operating with the highest level of truthfulness and transparency. 
  • Conviction – We have the courage to lead our clients and candidates through positive change, even when it is not the most popular choice. We consult and advise to deliver the best client and candidate outcomes.
  • Optimism – We are hopeful and fun to work with. Optimism and confidence are infectious and we are catalysts in creating positive change for our clients and candidates.

Our Mission is to lead IT hiring initiatives that result in more efficient placements and the highest levels of retention in the industry. Our goal is to make hiring managers and candidates smile with relief.

Specializing in People

We understand candidate “suitability” is the uniqueness that creates the separation between candidates. We specialize in understanding those technical and cultural nuances that make all the difference in the quality of the hire. We do so by employing a proprietary approach to behavioral and competency-based screening and assessment. 

Absolute Trust

SmarTech Talent Solutions operates as an extension of your hiring team. We aspire to earn your trust through performance and results. It’s this level of absolute confidence that defines our value.


“Mike contacted me about Senior Systems Engineer role.  I was working happily in my job but decided to listen about the opportunity.  Mike immediately caught my attention by engaging me and asking lots of open-ended questions.  He was easy to talk to and it didn’t even feel like I was being interviewed.  I told him that I would leave only for the right fit and he assured me this was the one.  Over 10 years later, I’ve been promoted multiple times and still working with the same company.  While carefully planning short and long term needs, Mike found the exact fit for me and for my company.  He is an amazing recruiter and his confidence enthusiasm is unmatched. “
