Work hard. Play hard.

The Team

A team of friends

 

We're born recruiters, master networkers, and we know how to get it done. We also rule at shuffle board. Have pretty good taste in beer. And typically have some sort of bet going around the office. We asked our clients why they work with us, and while trusting in our fast delivery of top talent is the core need, it's the friendships they feel they have in the Juno team that keep them coming back.
