Your job.

As a Product Manager at Indeed, you will be part of our Candidate Recommendation team. You will be empowered to set ambitious goals for your product and team. Your goals will not be easy to achieve; they should inspire and motivate the team to think big. 

You will work closely with the development team on a daily basis. You will sit next to developers, define requirements and analyze tests with their input. You will do data analysis yourself, whether it’s doing queries in MySQL, searching through logs, or using the plethora of in-house tools for analyzing data.
You will constantly create hypotheses for improving your product, test them, and learn from the results. 

Our product development philosophy is similar to the Lean Startup philosophy. You will create MVPs, prototypes, simple tests to validate ideas and iterate. 

We would prefer to spend time simplifying a feature to get it out the door this week than building flashy powerpoint decks for all hands meetings.

  • Build products and processes that help people get jobs and help employers make hires
  • Understand pain points and create simple solutions
  • Validate ideas by performing experiments and analyzing the results
  • Define product goals and metrics
  • Identify and prioritize opportunities

About you.

Product Managers at Indeed are analytical, creative, and collaborative. We obsess over data and drive for simplicity. You will guide the team by exemplifying these core values. Product Managers have the responsibility to deliver results, but no direct authority over peers in Engineering and Design. A successful Product Manager leads by developing the trust and respect of teammates so you will have to influence others to follow your vision. You, and your peers will be custodians of the Indeed culture of data and collaboration. You will enjoy a casual work environment, flexible hours, and great compensation and benefits. There is a complete lack of office politics; if that is your specialty, look elsewhere.
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.
You will work directly with teams in Tokyo as a product manager on a daily basis and coordinate closely with the counter partner teams in Austin. You will report to a manager in Austin and you are expected to travel to Austin roughly once in 6 months, up to once in a quarter.
