Tokyo, JAPAN (August 5, 2017) - Recruit Holdings announced today that its subsidiary Indeed, the world's number one job site, has acquired Interviewed, an HR technology company that makes it faster and easier for employers to identify and evaluate candidates.

"Indeed's mission is to help people get jobs, and today we make it easy for millions of job seekers to find and apply to jobs all over the world," said Chris Hyams, president of Indeed. "Interviewed's technology is a natural extension, allowing job seekers to demonstrate their skills, and enabling employers to quickly and easily identify the best candidates for their roles.

"We are thrilled that Indeed, the leader in online hiring, will be integrating our platform with their extensive service offerings that work to bring the right candidate to the right opportunity," said the Darren Nix, CEO of Interviewed. "Indeed's relentless commitment to helping people find jobs makes it a great home for Interviewed's tools that strive to cut hiring time in half and create a better experience for both job seekers and hiring managers."
