Our mission.

As the world’s number 1 job site, our mission is to help people get jobs. We need talented, passionate people working together to make this happen. We are looking to grow our teams with people who share our energy and enthusiasm for creating the best experience for job seekers.

The team.

We are a rapidly growing and focused product team building the most popular job site on the planet. Every month, over 200 million people count on Indeed to help them find jobs, make it easy to apply, research companies, and connect qualified candidates to their job openings. With product teams in Austin, Tokyo, Seattle, San Francisco, Singapore and Hyderabad, we are improving people's lives all around the world, one job at a time.

Your job.

Have you ever thought about forming your own startup?  Want to know what it feels like to launch something new each quarter?  Are you a fan of the Lean Startup and Customer Development?


We are looking for a product leader for Indeed Incubator.  Indeed.com is the #1 job site in the world, helping over 200 million people every month find jobs.  Indeed Incubator is an internal new product accelerator, charged with pioneering new product ideas and assessing their viability through fast launches and empirical learning.


As the PM for Indeed Incubator you will be responsible for launching new products, from conception to analytics.  You should possess a mix of technical strength, business strength and good product ideas.

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.  You, and your peers, will be custodians of the Indeed culture of data and collaboration.

You will work closely with the engineering and product science on a daily basis. You will define requirements, analyze A/B tests and design processes.

Indeed’s product development philosophy is similar to the Lean Startup philosophy. You will create Minimal Viable Products (MVPs), prototypes of new products, simple tests to validate ideas and iterate. You will NOT be an armchair Product Manager writing large PRDs and handing them off to the development team. Most Product Managers at Indeed don’t even know what a PRD is.

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.

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.
