Currently servicing more than 4,000 customers, JobAdder has successfully established itself as a strong player in the applicant tracking system (ATS) market.

CEO of JobAdder, Martin Herbst, said Kidd brings exactly the kind of experience the company was looking for. “Ginger has successfully driven multi-market growth at a pivotal time for other tech scale-up players, and her experience will be extremely valuable in helping take JobAdder to the next stage of our journey”.

Kidd’s appointment follows close on the heels of JobAdder securing another round of funding to help fuel innovation and grow its applicant tracking system (ATS) and customer relationship management (CRM) service offering.
