SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ZipRecruiter® (NYSE:ZIP), a leading online employment marketplace, today announced that the company is set to join the Russell 3000®Index at the conclusion of the 2022 Russell indexes annual reconstitution, effective after the U.S. market opens on June 27, 2022 according to a preliminary list of additions.
Annual Russell indexes reconstitution captures the 4,000 largest U.S. stocks as of May, ranking them by total market capitalization.

“The addition of ZipRecruiter into the Russell 3000® Index marks a significant milestone in our journey as a public company,” said Ian Siegel, ZipRecruiter CEO and co-founder. “We believe this will increase investor awareness of ZipRecruiter’s mission to actively connect people to their next great opportunity.”
