We Live to Spark Connections

With our clients, our consultants, and each other

The Concero


We’re a St. Louis-based recruitment firm that’s been finding great work for good humans since 2012. In that time, we’ve placed nearly 3,000 talented professionals with more than 250 clients across the country. We live and breathe networking—it’s the driving force that enables us to help our candidates achieve their dreams and do the heavy lifting for our clients.

It all started when our founders, Jay Murchison, Ben Kandlbinder, and Pat Ruzicka decided to use their connections and tenacity to start matching dynamic companies with handpicked professionals in IT, Accounting & Finance, and Professional Services. Today, our leadership team has more than 50 years of combined experience in technical recruitment, bringing a wealth of business acumen and people smarts to everything they touch.

What’s our exact recipe for success?

 We’ll never tell. But it has something to do with our genuine desire to help talented professionals achieve their dreams by doing the work they love for an employer that values their efforts. It’s a pretty solid formula for success, and our recruiters put an enormous amount of energy into learning the skills, motivations, and values of every consultant we place.

Here’s the bottom line: Concero excels at providing contract, contract-to-hire, and direct-hire placement services to organizations looking for professionals—from entry level to the c-suite—throughout the U.S. We can’t wait to get connected with you.

We’ve talked ourselves up enough. Check out these real words from good humans we’ve worked with:

My journey with Concero began when my job was eliminated following an acquisition. I connected with Patrick, Akiv, and Ashley, who understood precisely what I was looking for in my next role. The team's consultative approach and commitment to getting to know me—not just my background—immediately put me at ease. This was my first experience working with a staffing firm, and I’m happy to say the process was seamless. The team found a role that was a perfect fit for my background, education, and expertise.   Even after my contract ended, Concero's team continued to stay in touch, offering their support at all times. They demonstrated true customer service and compassion, which, to me, is the cornerstone of any successful partnership. I even had the pleasure of meeting Jay, the company’s president, who showed a genuine interest in all the workers in the pipeline, reinforcing the idea that their success is directly tied to ours. I have no hesitation in recommending Concero to anyone seeking a staffing firm that truly cares about its clients and their long-term success.  Steven Calicutt, Cybersecurity Leader

I've had an exceptional experience working with Patrick, my representative at Concero. He was communicative and resourceful, helping me find two positions that perfectly matched my skillset in quality assurance. What truly impressed me about Concero was the quick, seamless process—from setting up interviews to securing my first role within weeks. The entire experience felt like working with a partner that had my back, making Concero feel almost like a home away from home. “Reliable” is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Concero, and I would highly recommend their services. Steven Johnson, Software Test Engineer

After connecting with Concero, they made it a point to get to know me, my desires for employment, and to place me with a company where I could prosper. Concero was a true advocate for me in the interviewing process, and my recruiter was able to speak to my abilities and interests. Thomas, Business Analyst

Concero was able to get my foot in the door at a company that I wouldn’t have had a chance with otherwise. They helped with any interview nerves that I had and gave me guidance on what I should discuss. I didn’t wait long for feedback from the company, either. Concero had the salary information early in the process, so I knew upfront it would be the right position for me. Ben, Technical Support Engineer

It was a pleasure working with Concero. Everyone was helpful throughout the job searching process I sincerely appreciate all the professional support and dedication. My recruiter was very detailed and responsive, and I truly appreciated all that she did for me. I would definitely recommend Concero for employment assistance. Vishnuvardhan, Senior Full Stack Developer

Concero’s attention to detail and vast knowledge of the company I was interviewing for helped me land a great job. Concero would routinely reach out to me to ensure I was engaged with the process, while establishing a working professional relationship. I recommend anyone looking for work in the IT sector to consider Concero, I promise you will not be disappointed with the results. Shane, DevOps Network Engineer

What I appreciate about Concero is their in-depth recruiting process… it’s systematic, thorough and personal. They are true partner, and I know I can depend on them for high caliber people for my team. Ramona, Director of IT, User Experience Construction and Real Estate Industry
