Welcome to SiliconCantera!

SiliconCantera is a full-service search firm located in Houston, Texas the 4th largest city in the United States. We partner with our clients to deliver a full suite of employment consulting services throughout the country. We consistently deliver highly qualified, world-class talent from a refined selection 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.

Throughout our history we have provided Candidates for more than 20 Fortune 500 listed Clients along with a long list of International, medium sized, and start up firms. We have done searches within a multitude of industries, including Energy, Manufacturing, Accounting, Medical, and Consulting, supporting searches from mid-level technical professionals through the C-Suite. We are able to find the right people in areas such as Executive Management, Engineering, Accounting, Sales, Operations, and manufacturing. Our Clients repeatedly tell us that we add a personal level to our services previously absent in their dealing with many search firms. We work as partners to adjust our service and fees depending on the client and the situation. Because they realize that we can work within most constraints they might have, this keeps our clients seeking our services as a trusted advisor in their hiring process.

Over the last 13 years 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 SiliconCantera's promise to work on behalf of both Clients and Candidates which forges our reputation as Consultants who build a three-way alliance throughout the search.
