How an Engineering Manager Works

You're someone who wants to see the impact of your work making a difference every day. You understand how to use data to make decisions. You find passion in the craft, and are constantly seeking improvement and a better way to solve tough problems. You produce the highest quality code as well as lead others to do the same. You have either built or are passionate about building scalable, reliable systems that span multiple data centers around the world which handle millions of requests every day. 

You understand that the best managers serve their teams by removing roadblocks and giving individual contributors autonomy and ownership. You have high standards and will take pride in Indeed like we do as well as push us to be better. You have delivered challenging technical solutions at scale. You have led engineering teams and earned the respect of talented software developers. You are equally happy talking algorithms and data structures as you are brainstorming about agile development process and technology career development. You love being in the mix technically while providing leadership to your teams.

How you work.

You will provide hands-on leadership for a full-stack development team building and enhancing products and systems in our service-oriented, highly scalable, multi-datacenter environment.  As our engineering organization grows, you will help ensure we keep the talent bar high, and growing the skills and capabilities of your team. All of Indeed’s products are built with performance, scalability, and data-driven decision-making in mind.
