AC Lion’s 2016 breakthrough into the Midwest digital recruiting scene was a no-brainier. While Silicon Valley and New York remain the powerhouses of tech, midwestern start-up-heavy cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Denver and Kansas City are looking to recruit top talent for their new teams. We have both jump started Midwest-based startups team building and expanded the sales, marketing, ad ops and product management teams for companies expanding to the Midwest.
