New York City Is a Great Match for RealMatch
World’s Largest Recruitment Advertising Network Relocates to the Big Apple
RealMatch, the world’s largest and most powerful recruitment advertising network, today announced that the company has moved its headquarters to Lower Manhattan. The company empowers publishers, media companies, and standalone job boards to move to the next level in recruitment advertising by enabling their job sites to connect employers with qualified applicants more efficiently by leveraging the entire Internet as a job board. It joins a growing movement that is revitalizing the Financial District. With new media companies and high-tech startups flocking to the area and job-creating activities taking center stage, the RealMatch team, now located on Broad Street, is perfectly at home, particularly given the role the company plays in online recruitment, which is an integral part of the economic revitalization process.

“Lower Manhattan is changing,” noted Gal Almog, RealMatch founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe it will emerge as one of the most vibrant parts of the city, and it’s a great match for us since much of the new growth is built on the great talent that we find in the New York Metro area. RealMatch has built a powerful new technology to enable our customers to apply digital advertising techniques to compete in the $6 billion online recruitment industry. We see ourselves as part of the movement to revitalize the economy with technology innovation – in New York City, across the US, and worldwide.”
The changes in Lower Manhattan aren’t taking place in a vacuum: Efforts are underway to boost the area’s economic activity. The Downtown Alliance aims to remake Lower Manhattan as a model for 21st century businesses, residents and tourists. This vision of renewal made the area an attractive relocation prospect for RealMatch, and other initiatives, like the Hive at 55, which offers co-working space for freelancers, small businesses and entrepreneurs, are inspiring more technology companies and promising startups to take up residence near the new RealMatch headquarters.
“New York City is a great place to call home,” said Chris Atkins, Vice President of Marketing at RealMatch, who lives in Lower Manhattan. “The Financial District went through a very tough time following the 9/11 attacks and the major hit the economy took over the past several years. But thanks to organized efforts like the Downtown Alliance and independent entrepreneurs who believe in the city’s possibilities, it has made an amazing turnaround. New York City and the surrounding area offer access to an excellent pool of talent, so it’s ideal for rapidly growing companies like RealMatch who are always looking for the best and brightest.”
Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s MediaNYC2020 plan, which seeks to capitalize on New York City’s traditional status as a global media center and position the city for success as new media evolves over the next decade, addresses the long-term future of one of RealMatch’s key customer groups: publishing companies. RealMatch enables publishing clients to regain and grow lost ad revenue and attract new readers by leveraging the company’s innovative job-matching platform, vast network distribution, and social media integration capabilities to reach over 37 million job seekers per month across thousands of job sites. As a New York City-based company, RealMatch is now in close proximity to many major players in the media industry.
In an uncertain economy, green shoots are important. The ongoing revitalization of Lower Manhattan is a promising sign. Millions of job openings in search of qualified applicants are another hopeful sign. RealMatch is pleased to be a part of both of these new beginnings.
