Recruitment software firm iCIMS Inc., an applicant tracking system provider, acquired Jibe Inc., a SaaS recruiting technology for sourcing, engaging and marketing to candidates.
Founded in 2010 in New York City, Jibe’s core product is the Jibe Recruiting Cloud; it provides candidate experience technology through branded career sites, landing pages, and personalized recommendations, using machine learning to provide relevant job search results to applicants and candidates to recruiters. It has a real-time reporting and analytics dashboard for insight into the candidate journey. Jibe’s clients include Johnson & Johnson, Siemens and Comcast.
“Jibe has spent nearly a decade building scalable technology that impresses candidates and drives meaningful results for the companies hiring them,” said Joe Essenfeld, Jibe founder and CEO. “iCIMS gives our team and customers an opportunity to up-level our vision with more investment in innovation, ultimately delivering the industry’s top end-to-end talent acquisition solution. The businesses have complementary strengths, aligned missions, and an incredible opportunity to grow.”

Private equity firm Vista Equity Partners last year purchased a majority of the outstanding shares of iCIMS. Earlier in 2018, iCIMS acquired TextRecruit Inc., a platform that enables job seekers to apply for openings via text message and live chat and companies to communicate with employees over text message.
