Google for Jobs partners with Madgex


Madgex, the technology provider behind many of the top-flight publisher job boards such as Guardian Jobs, is partnering with Google to test and launch a new search experience that will help people find jobs more quickly and efficiently.

Google were keen to optimise the feature and make it more useful for people looking for jobs on search by ensuring they were capturing jobs from top-flight brands such as The Washington Post. Madgex were delighted to be able to partner with Google to ensure that all its job boards have the ability to integrate with Google’s new search results.

This brand-new job listing experience formally launched on the 20th June for people in the US and Madgex’s market-leading job board software is fully integrated and ready to go. The new search feature gives people an immersive experience that allows them to explore jobs from across the web and refine their search to meet their unique needs.

Features include the capability for one search to result in multiple jobs from multiple sources. It’s only when the person clicks ‘apply’ that they will be taken to the appropriate job board.

Functionality allows users to see at-a-glance details about the posting, such as the job title, location, whether it’s full-time, part-time or an internship, as well as the opportunity to access detailed information about each job. They can even see the how long it would take to commute to the job from their home with the power of Google Maps.

Only jobs posted on job boards that integrate with Google will receive traffic from this new, enhanced search feature. This means it is now more important than ever for job board owners to ensure they are partnered with the right technology provider.

Madgex job boards in the US can take full advantage of this new functionality from day one, thanks to their partnership with Google.

Madgex CEO Tom Ricca-McCarthy said: “We power some of the leading brands in online recruitment, which led to Google approaching us to work on this new feature. They were looking for top job boards in the US and as Madgex powers high-quality brands such as The Washington Post and The New England Journal of Medicine we were an obvious partner for this new search facility.

“Ensuring Madgex-powered job boards are integrated with this new Google feature is part of our drive to provide our clients with the best functionality and ensure our job boards lead the way in recruitment technology.”

The feature is expected to launch in the rest of the world towards the end of the year with all Madgex-powered job boards will be able to integrate from launch.

Madgex are currently finalising a guide for job board owners on how to take advantage of Google’s new job feature, which you can register for here.
