Job.com, an online recruitment platform, announced today the acquisition of a 100% stake in HireVergence, an IT staffing firm focused in cybersecurity.
“This is a major step toward Job.com’s vision of a digitized staffing industry, delivering a hiring experience to the jobseeker that moves away from transactions and focuses on career journeys,” says Arran Stewart, co-founder and chief visionary officer.
Job.com started as a job board. Now, the Austin, Texas-based company says it’s using artificial intelligence and blockchain to create an automated recruitment platform enables employers to post jobs, shortlist applicants, communicate with candidates, schedule interviews and extend job offers. Fees are 7% of the candidate’s first-year base salary. It provides candidates with a portion of their fee after they have been on the job for 90 days.
HireVergence is based in Tampa, Florida, and was founded by Mark Tuszynski, Dave Gilden and Julio Sanchez. All three will remain with the combined firm and lead the HireVergence operations.
Terms of the transaction were not announced.
