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’s investment in iCIMS happened shortly after iCIMS strategically partnered with recruitment and human capital management software organisations 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.

Philanthropy and giving back

Vista is committed to the philanthropic partnerships it’s formed over the years.

We’re very proud to partner with Vista, who has a phenomenal reputation and strong technology expertise, to accelerate our growth. Given the size of the industry, iCIMS’ track record, and our team of dedicated, talented personnel, we continue to see an incredible opportunity for iCIMS to win this market. Vista’s support gives us additional confidence in making that a reality.
