HOME: Welcome


After working in the recruiting industry for nearly a decade, Shannon Hines knew it was time for a change. She was ready to create a firm that exemplified active integrity, empathy, and a commitment to client and candidate honesty.

Shannon took the plunge! Her only capital being her trusted network she had built over her ten years in the recruiting industry. The most important key to success is to develop and maintain genuine relationships. As a result, MTC, which originally began as SRLH Consultants was off with a bang! Shannon was thrilled at the early success she found shortly after going out on her own.

However, as life is apt to do, all did not go according to plan…

Less than four months after the creation of MTC, Shannon was hospitalized due to a flu, that quickly escalated into acute respiratory distress syndrome, and she nearly died. I’ll let you do the Google search, but her life was only saved due to a tremendous medical technology called ECMO [Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, also known as extracorporeal life support].

Shannon was suspended in a medical coma for nearly a month while her lungs recovered. When she awoke, she had been given a tracheotomy, and could not speak, or walk. Shannon could not recognize her loved ones, and had no sense of reality or memory of why she had been hospitalized.

Gratefully, due to an amazing, and miraculous team of medical professionals at Legacy Emanuel in Portland, Oregon, Shannon was able to recover significantly quicker than was predicted. She regained her memories, her voice, and her ability to walk over the course just a few months.

It was during the time that Shannon was hospitalized that MTC made it’s very first candidate placement. Her wife, Melissa, knew the importance of this, and wanted to help make Shannon’s new business and dream come to fruition. While Shannon was in a medical coma, Melissa contacted Shannon’s candidates and client, and explained the situation. She was then able to guide the remainder of the process and place MTC’s first candidate.


It was a true blessing to Shannon to learn that her first placement had been made while she was in a coma! It was at that moment, that Shannon’s beloved wife also became her business partner and co-founder of MTC, Melissa Hartwick-Hines.

“Shannon is a true professional in every sense of the word. One of her greatest strengths is her willingness to listen. She takes the time to understand team culture as well as technical requirements and takes that into account before submitting candidates. Her communication always hits the mark -- getting the clarity she needs to do her job while respecting my busy schedule. I’m happy to work with Shannon and will continue to do so now and into the future.”


“Shannon has made a big impact on helping us find talented and passionate engineers. Every submission is well-curated so that we can make an informed decision. We appreciate her urgency and ability to take feedback on candidates. I couldn't be happier with the partnership!”


Shannon is a charismatic, diligent and authentic recruiting professional who is above all transparent and honest in her engagements. I have had the fortune of working with her from the perspectives of a jobseeker as well as employer (as manager of a software development team) and I can attest to the consistent and concerted efforts she applies on both sides, coming from a place of integrity, focus and collaboration. I am confident that Shannon would be an asset to anyone seeking to further their professional career in IT, or any company looking to find talent that will add both cultural and business value to their IT organization.


Shannon is a world class recruiter. She is dedicated and passionate about finding the right fit in a very competitive market.  Her attention to detail is second to none and the recruiting process is very efficient. I highly recommend working with her and hope to do so again in the future!


Melissa recruited me for a fantastic role that I love. From her first question, till long after I was hired, it was obvious that she has genuine care for those she is working with and represented my interests accurately to my (now) employer. The process could not have been smoother, thanks Melissa!


I have had my best experience in the job market with Melissa and Shannon. They found me my dream job and made the process so easy.They are absolute professionals. In the software engineering world, a good service keeps all of its implementation and complexity encapsulated and away from the user.. all the user needs from a particular service is a correct and accurate result..

I can certainly relate to this concept outside of the software world by my experience with Melissa and Shannon.
I’m lucky to have worked with these two amazing human beings. I would definitely recommend them to anyone that would like to experience a truly professional process and find the perfect job.
