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.
As a leader of the International Platforms team, you will be responsible for partnering with Product, UX and other engineering teams to make Indeed’s products delight all our users worldwide. You will work to define a technical strategy for addressing international opportunities, identifying solutions that potentially span multiple teams. Your engineering teams will embed with other teams to help them make core parts of the product better suited for different market needs. This configuration goes well beyond simple language translation and localisation, and into the behavior of the features themselves.
You will lead a team of “dual citizens” who are fully members of the International Platforms team, but work deeply in the code bases of and with their “host” teams to address long-standing issues which have blocked strong adoption of the host team’s products and platforms in Indeed’s international markets.
You will provide technical leadership and guidance and would help facilitate the team to build out new capabilities and/or systems in a manner such that they drive efficiency of execution while solving for scale, reliability and flexibility. You will coach and grow technical leaders and help them be successful individual contributors or managers at Indeed. You will partner with other technical leaders, drive thought leadership and help accomplish initiatives outside the immediate scope of responsibility through influence and/or guidance.
In short, you will...
Lead, inspire, and influence to make sure your team is successful
Build strong, collaborative relationships with the various host teams in which your team members are embedded
Partner with the recruiting team to attract and retain high-quality and diverse talent
Establish great rapport with other development teams, Product Managers, Sales and Customer Success to maintain high levels of visibility, efficiency, and collaboration
Ensure teams have appropriate technical direction, leadership and balance between short-term impact and long term architectural vision.
Lead 2-5 software engineering teams, and grow them to 5-9 and beyond.
You are someone who is looking for an opportunity to shape the future of an organization. You enjoy working on challenging ideas and are not afraid to jump in and drive those ideas to their eventual conclusion. You thrive when solving complex problems. You have a strong point-of-view on both technology design and product direction and have had demonstrable successes in the past, but are not wedded to them when confronted with contrary data. You like to take calculated risks based on previous experience and feel accountable for the outcome. You are data-driven and like to base discussions on the merits of data as opposed to personal bias. You enjoy working with teams, are always looking to uplevel their capabilities, and care deeply about their well-being. You enjoy coaching individuals and leaders and are passionate about helping them identify and reach their career goals.
What we are looking for:
5+ years managing software engineering teams in consumer Web or SaaS products
Experience leading a geographically distributed software engineering organization comprising multiple teams
Strong technical background that allows you to advocate for and support your engineers
Experience building strong partnerships with other job functions, like product, marketing and UX, to keep teams collaborating smoothly and working together to improve the product.
Ensure teams have appropriate technical direction, leadership, and balance between short-term impact and long term architectural vision.
Experience in working across partner teams to diplomatically influence their roadmaps and deliverables
Experience in product internationalization desirable
Experience living and/or working outside of the US a positive
