Vista Equity Partners and iCIMS

Vista Equity Partners invested in iCIMS in August 2018 and helped accelerate the company’s growth and innovation.

A strategic partnership


Vista Equity Partners’ (Vista) investment in iCIMS happened shortly after iCIMS strategically partnered with recruitment and human capital management software organizations ADP and Ultimate Software and later the acquisition of TextRecruit.

Susquehanna Growth Equity, who previously invested in iCIMS, continues to be a shareholder and serves on iCIMS’ Board of Directors.
