Red Herring Names iCIMS Top 100 North America Winner

– Leading Northeast SaaS provider selected as outstanding private company from the Americas –

MATAWAN, N.J. (May 29, 2014) – iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, proudly announces its selection by Red Herring as a Top 100 award winner in recognition of leading private companies from the Americas, celebrating innovations in life sciences and technology organizations across respective industries.

Red Herring Top 100 North America recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. Each year, the program selects 100 award winners from among approximately 3,000 private tech companies in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, Marin Software, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work.

“In 2014, selecting the Top 100 achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 winners. We believe iCIMS embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. iCIMS should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, management quality, business model, customer footprint and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.

“To be recognized as a Red Herring Top 100 North America winner demonstrates iCIMS’ role as not only the leader in talent acquisition SaaS, but in cloud-based technology in general,” said iCIMS CEO Colin Day. “At iCIMS we are incredibly proud of our growth and sustained profitability since our founding and look forward to remaining a top performer and exemplary business model for the human capital management (HCM) software industry and beyond.”
