About Us | Amy Cell Talent

Looking for talent?  Looking for career opportunities with Michigan technology companies?  You’ve come to the right place.


Amy Cell Talent was launched in March of 2015 to help Michigan startups and small businesses have access to high quality, yet affordable talent acquisition services.  In the prior decade, Amy had led talent programs for Ann Arbor SPARK and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and had designed dozens of programs to help attract, retain and develop talent.  She understood the gap in programs to help job seekers and employers, and felt that she had a unique background and passion for this issue.  

Since launching her "talent agency" her team has grown and has been able to help dozens of employers and hundreds of job seekers connect to resources and each other.  She is honored to work with an incredible team, an amazing entrepreneurial ecosystem in Michigan, and with hundreds of people that trust her resources and support to find their next career adventures.
