ZipRecruiter Launches Partnership with iCIMS for a Faster, Simplified Recruitment Experience

Company’s integration with a leading talent acquisition technology provider will streamline enterprise hiring and simplify the application process

Santa Monica, Calif. (March 13, 2024) – ZipRecruiter®, a leading online employment marketplace, today announced a new applicant tracking system (ATS) integration with iCIMS, a leading provider of talent acquisition (TA) technology, to help enterprises improve the recruitment experience and hire talent faster. 

ZipRecruiter has joined the iCIMS Apply Network, an integrated ecosystem of job sites and partners, to help standardize and streamline the job application process. The new embedded integration gives TA teams the ability to create, manage, and distribute job openings to ZipRecruiter—providing them access to over 12M job seekers weekly1—without leaving the iCIMS ATS. The new integrated experience significantly improves overall recruiting efficiency and reduces candidate drop-off. The integration is now available for free to all U.S.-based iCIMS ATS customers. 

“In today’s fast-paced and competitive hiring landscape, talent acquisition professionals who have to switch back and forth between different sites to review candidates and manage their hiring workflows are losing valuable time and potentially top candidates,” said Matt Plummer, ZipRecruiter Senior Vice President, Product Strategy & Enterprise Solutions. “Through our integration with iCIMS, organizations will have access — and provide a better experience — to quality job seekers without ever leaving their iCIMS ATS. We’re committed to simplifying the TA experience for employers so they can hire faster.”

With this integration, organizations will have a convenient way to tap into ZipRecruiter’s network and matching technology, while being able to manage the full recruiting lifecycle from iCIMS. Job seekers will have an easy, redirect-free application experience on ZipRecruiter where they can leverage their existing profile and resume, and then their application information—including responses to any screening questions—will flow directly into iCIMS. Enterprise TA teams will also benefit from ZipRecruiter’s industry-leading job recommendation engine that will learn from candidate signals managed from within iCIMS.

Through the integration on the iCIMS Apply Network, employers can further increase engagement with their jobs and reduce job seeker drop-off through the use of ZipApply, a frictionless application process job seekers can access from any device that saves 30 minutes of application time, on average2. Additionally, applications started through ZipApply are over 3x more likely to be completed3.

“We’re continuously innovating to help our customers hire smarter, deliver more business value and provide better experiences at scale,” said Al Smith, chief technology officer, iCIMS. “We’re proud to build upon our existing partnership with ZipRecruiter and welcome them to the iCIMS Apply Network ecosystem with a new, embedded integration that enables TA teams to standardize and streamline the job application experience. The integration will bring third-party job sites and partner workflows into one centralized location to improve efficiency, reduce candidate drop-off and deliver more consistent recruiting data.”
