Holmdel Township Mayor Gregory Bountempo joined executives from Somerset Development and iCIMS at the ceremonial opening of talent acquisition firm iCIMS new location at Bell Works. iCIMS, which has approximately 650 employees, cut the ribbon on their new location last Monday.
“When we signed our lease last summer, we had extremely high hopes for what this space could become, and how it could help drive iCIMS’ culture to new heights as a technology organization,” Colin Day, founder and chief executive officer of iCIMS, said. “Being here today has completely transcended my expectations. I’ve always held this building in special regard as evidence of the depth of talent that resides in the state of New Jersey. Now, I’m honored to help write the state’s next chapter as a home for innovation, alongside all of our incredible iCIMS employees and other outstanding local companies.”
iCIMS’ offices span four floors and will eventually house up to 2,000 employees at Bell Works. The firm relocated from Matawan to Holmdel and now occupies 350,000 square feet at Somerset Development’s project.
“The move to Bell Works is a homecoming story for Day who began his career as an IT recruiter hiring technical candidates for the location, then known as Bell Labs,” iCIMS said in a news release. “The two-million-square-foot, glass-encased building was once the staging ground for revolutionary work in telecommunication satellites, cellular phones, and fiber optics, resulting in eight Nobel Prize wins. Following a long period of vacancy, interior spaces were recently redeveloped to foster a new era of innovation, collaboration, and commerce.”
iCIMS was the recipient of a $38 million tax incentive from the New Jersey Economic Development Authority.
In May of this year, software solution firm WorkWave also relocated from Neptune to Bell Works.
