SmartRecruiters Press Releases

Jim Milton, Formerly of Taleo, Joins SmartRecruiters as Senior Director Enterprise Strategy

Brings deep expertise in delivering talent sourcing solutions to the large enterprise

San Francisco – June 12, 2014 – SmartRecruiters, the only end-to-end hiring platform that managers and candidates love, today announced that former Oracle Product Strategy Director Jim Milton joined the company as Senior Director of Enterprise Strategy. Milton’s decade of experience building go-to-market sourcing solutions for global businesses will enable him.

Milton spent four years leading enterprise product strategy at SelectMinds, which Oracle acquired in 2013. After the acquisition, Milton owned product strategy for Oracle’s Taleo Social Sourcing Cloud Service line. Prior to SelectMinds and Oracle, Milton held positions at LinkedIn, and Apex Systems in product, sales and marketing functions.

“Jim’s deep experience in the enterprise market and social recruiting will be instrumental in enabling us to meet demand from global organizations that want to reinvent the way they attract, engage and hire people to generate greater business success,” said Jerome Ternynck, CEO of SmartRecruiters. “We are confident that Jim will help us increase the footprint of the SmartRecruiters platform across the enterprise.”

Since its founding in 2010, SmartRecruiters has enabled 70,000+ businesses across a multitude of sectors—including retail, tech and healthcare—to reduce their time to hire by 75 percent and cost to hire by 70 percent, while increasing applicant volume by 250 percent.

“SmartRecruiters is the only company in the space trying to drive innovation of the core recruiting platform, rather than create incremental solutions to parts of the problem,” said Jim. “The SmartRecruiters team aims to reinvent recruiting, and I’m thrilled to be part of this mission.”
