Jobvite Wins 2010 Red Herring 100 North American Award

Recruiting Technology Innovator Selected From a Large Pool of Technology Start-Ups From Across North America

BURLINGAME, CA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2010) - Jobvite, creator of next-generation recruitment solutions, today announced it has been selected as a 2010 Red Herring Top 100 North America Company. The prestigious award recognizes the leading private companies in North America, celebrating these start-ups' innovations and technologies across their respective industries.

Red Herring's Top 100 North America list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

"We are honored to receive the Red Herring 100 North America award recognizing our company's customer growth and technology innovation," said Dan Finnigan, Chief Executive Officer of Jobvite. "Jobvite has revolutionized recruiting software with our social recruiting innovations, making it practical and easy for any company to cost-effectively target talent and build the best teams."

"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Jobvite embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Jobvite should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."

Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of start-ups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.
