Alin Artimon (born 31 August 1971 in Timişoara, Romania) is a former Romanian football player and current manager.

As Artimon joined Steaua Bucureşti in his youth, he was labeled the next Miodrag Belodedici, but never really managed to progress. His subsequent career saw him play for Timişoara based teams, such as CFR and Poli, before moving on to FC Oneşti and ending his career at Drobeta-Turnu Severin.

After a short stint as a manager at Apulum Alba-Iulia, Artimon was recruited at Poli as a youth-supervisor. He received his big opportunity when being offered the manager position at the club after Sorin Cîrţu's release in November 2006. While initially viewed only as a temporary solution, a good streak of results meant that he would be given the chance to lead the team for the remainder of the season.

However, on 5 March 2007, Artimon resigned from his position as manager, stating that he did not wish to continue to work for the club if his efforts remain unappreciated. The resignation came just two days after a historic draw against Dinamo Bucharest, when Poli used the second team, in protest against a two-match ban of Artavazd Karamyan.
