Japan-based recruitment marketplaces’ operator MyNavi has acquired TripleFour, an HR technology company that tracks the programming skills of IT engineers. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Tokyo-based TripleFour was established in 2017 and was valued at Y90.3 million ($855,000 U.S.) last October. The company has 24 employees.

TripleFour’s tools measure and manage programing skills for IT engineers. MyNavi plans to use TripleFour to enter the new graduate recruitment market.

Established in 1973, MyNavi owns and operates a variety of job boards, including Tenshoku.MyNavi.jp, a recruitment marketplace and a part-time job board Baito.MyNavi.jp.

Tenshoku.mynavi.jp is among the top three recruitment marketplaces in Japan by traffic. With 8.9 million visitors in January, the site lags behind competitor Doda.jp (10.1 million). Recruit Holdings-owned Jp.indeed.com, TownWork.net and Next.rikunabi.com are the most-visited job sites with combined monthly traffic of 62.7 million.
