About Us

History

Mindseeker launched as an IT staffing company in early 2000 at the height of the dot-com boom to support the explosive growth in technology and provide a reliable and scalable staffing service to many of the high-tech start-ups. Our goal was to provide a level of quality staffing that seemed to be missing from the fast-paced staffing industry.

As our business grew, so did the opportunities, and it became evident that incorporating professional services into our model would be a logical move and a natural progression for the business. As we began working across different Industry verticals and growing our footprint, we focused on areas where we had strong relationships with opportunities to build our capabilities and service offerings. Today, Mindseeker is registered in over 35 states and serves as prime government contractor, supports some of the nation’s largest financial institutions, and provides revenue cycle services to many large health systems across the country. Our general staffing business continues to support clients nationally in Information Technology, Accounting and Finance, and other niche areas.
