ZipRecruiter Named One of The World’s Most Innovative Companies in 2019 by Fast Company

Online employment marketplace ZipRecruiter has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies, ranking #9 in the Enterprise category. The MIC list honors the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture.

ZipRecruiter allows talent acquisition teams to spend their time building their best teams, rather than sorting through irrelevant resumes. The company’s algorithm learns what employers are looking for and actively invites the most relevant candidates to apply. ZipRecruiter attracts millions of job seekers every month and is the fastest-growing job search destination by unique visitors, compared to similar job sites.*

“We’re proud to be named as one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to connect businesses of all sizes with great candidates,” said Ian Siegel, ZipRecruiter Co-Founder and CEO. “80 percent of employers who post a job on ZipRecruiter get a quality candidate through the site within the first day.”

The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a roadmap for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy. This year, Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out groundbreaking businesses across 35 industries and every region. They also judged nominations received through their application process.

“Established players are showing the same kind of nimbleness that we’ve generally associated with startups,” said Fast Company deputy editor David Lidsky, who oversaw the issue with senior editor Amy Farley.
