Your job.

Indeed Labs is seeking a full-stack software engineer to help us prototype and launch innovative new products (using Python/Django) centered around helping people get jobs.

Have you ever thought about forming your own startup?  Want to know what it feels like to launch something new?  Are you a fan of the Lean Startup or Customer Development?  Want to observe users using your creations each week?

Indeed Labs is a team charged with prototyping and testing out new product ideas for Indeed.  For example:, a rapid experiment in finding jobs using a map (only for Austin, TX jobs at the moment). When you come to work at Indeed Labs, you’ll be working with a 7-person team of problem solvers who exhibit high energy, deep technical skills and a drive to experiment. The Indeed Labs development stack is optimized around developer productivity. We use Python, Django, Bootstrap, jQuery, MySQL, MongoDB, ElasticSearch and more. We instrument our code liberally with analytics so we can see what’s happening. We release daily.

You will be responsible for entire projects, from working with a Product Manager and 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.

  • Build web applications in Python/Django, including front-end (user interfaces) and back end.
