Your job.

Indeed's mission has always been to help people get jobs. In order to do that, we need to connect jobseekers and employers quickly, in the right channel, with the right message. As the product lead, you will own the platform that sends billions of messages every week and manage a team of Technical Product Managers that build reliable, scalable, and innovative solutions for messaging across Indeed. 

As a Product Manager, you will be responsible for products and strategy that significantly impact the entire company. You will be empowered to set ambitious goals for your products which should inspire and motivate the team to think big. The goals should be simple to understand, few in number, and clearly communicated so your team and the rest of the company understand what we are doing, why we do it, and where we're headed. 

You will wear many hats and constantly learn new things on the job. You will be surrounded by smart, dedicated, nice people. You will be proud of the company’s mission and your products’ impact. Every day you will hear someone say ‘What is best for the Job Seeker?’. Come help us answer that question through your creativity and drive.

On your first day, we will give you a t-shirt that says, "I help people get jobs." Soon after, you will be wearing your shirt at the grocery store and someone will come up and say, "I love Indeed! I found my job on Indeed. Thank you!" You will smile for the rest of the day. This will happen a lot.

About you.

You're someone who wants to see your work making a difference every day. You have high standards for both yourself and your colleagues. You believe that companies should create a personal relationship with their users through messaging. 

You understand how high-velocity software development teams work, and how engineers think. Most of all, you love solving hard technical challenges to make a difference in the lives of other people, whether they be job seekers, employers or your fellow Indeedians.
