Simply Hired Accelerates Momentum as Leading Global Independent Job Search Engine

HR Technology Conference 2014

LAS VEGAS--()--HR Technology Conference & Expo – Simply Hired, the largest independent job search engine with properties in 24 countries and 12 languages, today announced that its ongoing innovation in vertical search continues to drive exceptional value to job seekers and recruiters.

Simply Hired’s content aggregation and search technology platform indexes 10 million job listings in every occupation from many online sources, including company career pages, job boards and niche job websites. The company has developed proprietary algorithms that determine which jobs to show each user, based on individual and aggregate behavioral data, to ensure that job seekers see the most appropriate jobs and employers' job opportunities are presented to the right job seekers.

“Building a platform to aggregate, process and index an unstructured and distributed data set like jobs is not a trivial undertaking,” said James Beriker, President and CEO of Simply Hired. “Vertical search is challenging. By putting the emphasis on quality, we believe that we have cracked the code on content aggregation. By focusing on data science, we are making huge advances in relevancy, which you will see in future products that start pushing the boundaries of search.”
