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.

With product teams in Seattle, San Francisco, Austin, Tokyo, and Hyderabad, we are improving people's lives all around the world, one job at a time.

Your job., the leading global job site, is seeking an Associate Localization Manager to focus on ensuring the success of Indeed’s presence worldwide. We are looking for someone who is tech-savvy, enjoys foreign languages and wants to work with people from all over the world. This position is a great opportunity for linguists and translators to switch careers or for those on the provider side of the industry to join the client side.

  • Support the International Operations Analysts in investigating and resolving bugs
  • Educate stakeholders across the organization (Product Management, Sales, Client Services, Marketing, Human Resources, Recruiting, Legal and more!) on best practices for global success
  • Lead the linguistic review and functional testing of all localized content, bridging the gap between requestors and translators to guarantee optimal translation, localisation (see what I did there?), transcreation and adaptation of our mission to help people get jobs in every language, in every country

What you will learn:

  • How to influence the internationalization and globalization strategy of a fast-growing company
  • What it takes to iterate in existing markets and launch in new countries
  • Rapid feature development and testing in an agile environment
  • A data-first approach to pitching your ideas to others
