As Vice President of Strategy, Joe Essenfeld is focused on building partnerships with strategic companies to help shape iCIMS’ product strategy. He plays a vital role in helping the company scale, as he identifies and builds relationships with market-leading companies to build differentiated products and distribution channels.
He previously led the integration of Jibe into iCIMS, following the 2019 acquisition. He founded Jibe in 2009 to solve the hiring challenges that he encountered while building young companies throughout his early career.
