Your job.

Our team owns Hiring Events, a product within Indeed’s job advertising ecosystem that helps employers hire more efficiently by letting jobseekers RSVP to an interview in lieu of applying to the job, effectively skipping directly to an interview. The product has recently “exited” from the internal incubator and is currently the fastest growing product at Indeed.  


When you come to work on the Hiring Events team, you’ll be working with a small team of problem solvers who exhibit high energy, deep technical skills and a dedication to experiment.


The Hiring Events team is seeking a front-end software engineer to help us design, build, and launch a new web/mobile application to create and manage hiring events. This application will replace the existing technology for performing these functions and enable us to take advantage of new business opportunities.

Responsibilities:

  • Collaborate with designers, product managers and other engineers to design product experiences

  • Build applications using modern Javascript front-end frameworks (such as React) and consume back end services

  • Continually improve our technical stack and processes

  • Maintain existing tools and infrastructure as necessary

  • Participate in usability testing

About you.

About you:

You will be responsible for entire projects, from working with a Product Manager and a UX Designer on the problem being solved, possible solutions, the UI design, implementation and analytics. You should possess a mix of technical strength, business strength and good product ideas.
