Our company has seen incredible global growth over the last 15 years, creating opportunities for our billing platform to scale and evolve to help Indeed reach more people across the world.


We are looking for a Billing Platform Architect who's passionate about building innovative products that scale to a rapidly growing business.  Indeed technology is built in a rich development ecosystem with short release cycles. Every week sees the new release of multiple products that meet the growing needs of hundreds of thousands of customers around the world.

 

As part of a collaborative team, you will help create a transparent billing experience for our customers that spans account creation, product usage tracking, invoicing, taxation, billing adjustments, reporting, and the accurate recording of all financial interactions in our accounting system.  We are a data-driven organization that leverages customer feedback and behaviors to develop solutions to the right problems.  Our journey is just beginning and we have a number of interesting problems to solve.  If partnering to define new solutions that have a clear and measurable impact on your customer is something you enjoy, this is where you will be your best.
