Our mission.

As the world’s number 1 job site, our mission is to help people get jobs. We need talented, passionate people working together to make this happen. We are looking to grow our teams with people who share our energy and enthusiasm for creating the best experience for job seekers.

The team.

We are a rapidly growing and focused product team building the most popular job site on the planet. Every month, over 250 million people count on Indeed to help them find jobs, make it easy to apply, research companies, and connect qualified candidates to their job openings. With product teams in Austin, Tokyo, Seattle, San Francisco, Singapore and Hyderabad, we are improving people's lives all around the world, one job at a time.

Your job.

Our Assessments team has a simple mission: help candidates get the right job.  We help candidates demonstrate their knowledge, skills, and abilities using job assessments — we're trying to make the resume a thing of the past.  


While there’s lots of engineering wizardry that make our assessments work for 200 million job seekers around the world, at the core of what we build is the assessment content itself — the questions, images, spreadsheets, videos, audio clips that candidates interact with. Taking an assessment from a concept like, “We should have an assessment for home health aids” to a real question like, “Please listen to this patient describing their symptoms and decide what to do next…” is the most important thing we do.  


Our Assessment Designer will develop these assessments used to screen applicants for jobs. This is a highly analytical role that will require you to think deeply about a multitude of subjects. Your job will involve scoping assessment topics, interviewing Subject Matter Experts, and designing assessments that look and feel realistic to candidates. This position is ideal for someone who loves the detailed analysis required for good assessment creation and requires curiosity to learn about many different jobs.

The Assessment Designer position can be located in any of Indeed's offices or the incumbent can work remotely.

Day to day you will:

  • Work alongside our product team to identify assessment topics needed

  • Research the job for which you are creating an assessment, including hiring and interviewing Subject Matter Experts

  • Write and rewrite assessment questions that align with specific knowledge, skills, and abilities

  • Work with our team of designers to commission graphics and other media to bring your assessment to life

  • Participate in continuous improvement of our assessment library

  • In a day, you could be working on an assessment in nursing, word processing, and warehouse safety all at once. We create assessments for a wide variety of jobs and work on many topics at a time.
