Welcome to SiliconCantera!

SiliconCantera is a full-service oil & gas recruiting firm. Located in Houston's Energy Corridor we are near some of our major Clients and a large percentage of our Candidates. We deliver employment consulting services to Houston's Energy Companies by partnering with them to support their staffing interests. We consistently deliver highly qualified, world-class technical talent from a refined selection that is second to none. We specialize in sourcing for our Client's hard to find Engineers, HR, and Accounting/Finance talent using personal, ethical and effective strategies. Our drive to turn over applicants of high quality to our Clients comes from our dedication to build relationships that last.

In the last five years, we have provided Candidates for more than 20 Fortune 500 listed Clients. Our Clients repeatedly tell us that we add a level of professionalism previously absent in their dealing with recruiting firms. This keeps decision-makers seeking our services as a trusted advisor in their hiring process.

Our Candidates come to us largely through word of mouth because they have heard of our commitment to build their career by placing them with an organization with which they will grow professionally and personally. When working with our Clients it is these hard to find, top notch Candidates that we will send out to interview. It is SiliconCantera's promise to work on behalf of both Clients and Candidates that forges our reputation in Houston as Consultants who build a three-way alliance between ourselves, the Client and Candidate.

Please take some time to visit the rest of the site. We look forward to working with you!
