U.K. based Broadbean, best known for its job post distribution service, has been acquired by CareerBuilder.
“CareerBuilder is excited to expand our portfolio and continue the rapid growth of our global HR SaaS operation,” said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder. “Clients will benefit from broader job distribution and one simple workflow to manage all external and internal sources for candidates.”
Today’s announcement provided no details on how CareerBuilder will integrate Broadbean’s products with its own growing offerings. However, the company has been making strategic acquisitions; 18 months ago it bought the labor economics analytics firm Economic Modeling Specialists, Inc. and now markets EMSI business intelligence to recruiters and for workforce planning.
