KINGSTON, Jamaica — November 19, 2013 — Software development agency Aranis Technologies Limited has acquired JobSearchJamaica.com, one of the largest and most widely used job search portals in Jamaica.

JobSearchJamaica.com will now function as a subsidiary of Aranis Technologies Limted. The strategic acquisition will see a complete overhaul of the JobSearchJamaica.com website and brand by the website development experts at Aranis Technologies in a move that promises a large expansion of the operations of JobSearchJamaica.com and revamping of the company’s business model.

"JobSearchJamaica.com is a very valuable web property which provides a much needed service to persons living in Jamaica and seeking jobs" said Aranis Technologies CEO Samuel Folkes. "We relish the opportunity to build on the excellent work and vision of the JobSearchJamaica.com founder and team and look forward to building on the existing platform and rapidly expanding the reach and utility of the company."

JobSearchJamaica.com is a job search portal that seeks to bring persons seeking employment closer to businesses seeking employees to fill positions within their respective organisations. Founded in 2009 by Kurt Samuels, a student at The University of the West Indies at the time, JobSearchJamaica.com was established with a view to assist college and university graduates in getting jobs. 4 years, over 20,000 registered users and millions of unique website hits later, JobSearchJamaica.com has become
one of the premier online job search portals in Jamaica.

The need to utilize new technologies and draw on a vast fund of web experience and knowledge to facilitate the expansion and continued success of JobSearchJamaica.com was one of the critical factors for JobSearchJamaica.com founder Kurt Samuels, who has worked tirelessly in driving the development and strategic direction of the company since its inception. "This is an exciting time for JobSearchJamaica.com" said Samuels. "For four years JobSearchJamaica.com has been my labour of love, having grown the website from its inception to what it is today. The acquisition by Aranis Technologies will allow us to take the service to new heights and I am 100% confident that Samuel and his team at Aranis will build on the existing platform and steer JobSearchJamaica.com toward a period of unprecedented success."

Financial terms of the JobSearchJamaica.com acquisition were not disclosed.
