Uncubed, a leading online talent acquisition and recruitment marketing platform, has announced the acquisition of New York-based Mediabistro, the premier careers site for the media sector and other digital professionals.
Following the acquisition, Uncubed will provide new services and an expanded offering to the Mediabistro customer base, including employer branding video services, customized recruiting services, candidate experience technology, and events. Mediabistro members and jobseekers will get access to additional content and job opportunities.
“Mediabistro has been the dominant careers site in the media sector for years,” said Chris Johnson, CEO of Uncubed. “We’re excited to bring our offering, technology, and events to Mediabistro customers – and to help them attract candidates with other skillsets. Similarly, we can now deliver a lot more value to Uncubed customers through the Mediabistro platform.”
Mediabistro will bring complementary jobseeker talent to the Uncubed network, which has traditionally been weighted towards software developers, data scientists, product managers, and others. With the Mediabistro community comprised largely of content creators, designers, and marketers, Uncubed will be able to provide a complete array of skillsets to customers.
Uncubed intends to operate the Mediabistro site independently, yet members of both communities will benefit from increased access to editorial and skill-building content, a wider set of job opportunities, and the candidate matching technology that Uncubed continues to develop.
