Local technology company recognized for contributing to the revival of the state’s long lost tech innovation hub
MATAWAN, N.J. [November 18, 2016] – iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based talent acquisition solutions, announces three recent awards from New Jersey business-focused organizations including NJBIZ, NJ Tech Council and NJ Business & Industry Association.
For the eighth consecutive year iCIMS was included on the NJBIZ 50 Fastest Growing Companies list. iCIMS was ranked 9th on the list, moving up 13 spaces from last year. Companies recognized for this award must be headquartered in New Jersey, have annual revenues exceeding $500,000 in the fiscal years ending in 2013, 2014, and 2015, and show revenue growth over the same period. In 2015 alone, iCIMS added more than 1,000 customers and increased revenue by 37 percent, contributing to more than a decade of profitability for the company. NJBIZ is New Jersey’s leading business journal. It is well known for its events honoring New Jersey’s top business professionals.
iCIMS was also named the Impact Company of the Year by NJ Tech Council, which recognizes and celebrates tech and life sciences companies for their accomplishments in leadership, collaboration and innovation. To be considered for the Impact Company of the Year, companies must have over $25 million in revenue and be a profitable market leader, while experiencing employment growth. The NJ Tech Council provides the state and region’s technology businesses with business development, education, networking and recognition opportunities.
“We’re incredibly honored to be recognized by leading organizations in our home state that realize the importance of the growth and development of New Jersey businesses. We’ve personally made numerous strides over the past year to remain a healthily growing organization, both in terms of customer and employee bases,” states Colin Day, chairman and chief executive officer of iCIMS. “Additionally, we’re planning to continue this growth and aim to further benefit the state in an even bigger way. Earlier this year, iCIMS signed a lease to relocate to the historic Bell Works corporate campus in Holmdel, NJ as the anchor tenant, providing us with room for up to 2,000 employees. iCIMS playing this large role in reviving the former Bell Laboratories is very meaningful to me and will hopefully help position New Jersey as a thriving tech hub once again.”
Lastly, iCIMS was awarded by NJ Business & Industry Association with an Award for Excellence in the Business Success category. The award is presented to companies that have contributed to the state’s economic growth through the expansion of their businesses.
