iCIMS plans to significantly increase Labs headcount by end of 2017
MATAWAN, N.J. (August 30, 2017) — iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based talent acquisition solutions, announces new investment in its technology department to further enhance its product user interface, platform integration capabilities and the candidate experience. The company plans to increase headcount in its Labs department by almost 25 percent by Q1 2018.
Serving as the organization’s technology center, iCIMS Labs encompasses product management, business analysis, product development, quality assurance, data science, architecture and production IT teams. In 2017, iCIMS launched an in-house Design Lab focused on user interface (UI) enhancements. The UX researchers, architects, developers and designers hired within the Design Lab support both the back-end talent acquisition platform and the front-end candidate experience.
“What drew me to iCIMS, and what I hope will bring many other passionate folks into the Labs organization, is the exciting creative opportunity that comes with working in such a rapidly changing and growing industry,” said Al Smith, vice president of technology at iCIMS. “Recruiting is dynamic and complex, yet iCIMS is able to invest in new frontiers like Google for Jobs because the company is healthy, growing and focused exclusively on talent acquisition. Investing in those critical areas while also leading the industry in Platform-as-a-Service is incredible. The agility shown by our Labs team through these advancements stems from a deep desire to drive better business outcomes for our customers. I’m thrilled to see further investment and growth in this area of our organization,” concludes Smith.
Within the past year, iCIMS software has been recognized by the Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Technology awards for the category of “Best Advance in Unique Talent Acquisition Technology,” the Cloud Awards “Best HR/Payroll Solution” and is now shortlisted for the 2017 SaaS Awards Program for “Best UX/UI/Design in a SaaS Product.”
iCIMS was also recently honored for a sixth consecutive time as one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey by NJBIZ. Later this year, the company will move its headquarters to the historic Bell Works building, joining other prominent NJ technology companies in a new space that will offer employees re-designed work areas, presentation and entertainment venues, eateries, service businesses and other amenities.
