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 builders, we are integrators. Tech Services creates and optimizes solutions for a rapidly growing business on a global scale. We work with distributed infrastructure, petabytes of data, and billions of transactions with no limitations on your creativity. You don’t have to wait for some architect or manager to tell you what you can work on - you decide the priorities. With tech hubs in Seattle, San Francisco, Austin, Tokyo and Hyderabad, we are improving people's lives all around the world, one job at a time.

Your job.

Indeed program managers work with the rest of the company to help product teams and functional teams to stay in-line with their goals. We are facilitators and motivators who are comfortable working across functional teams and across geographic regions.

As a program manager at Indeed, you'll be working with product managers, software engineers, quality assurance, system administrators and other key players to support our development and release processes. Our releases happen frequently at Indeed, and program managers ensure that this happens smoothly. In general, you see what needs to be done and do it. You influence and persuade all kinds of people without annoying them. You know the difference between what could be done and what must be done. You think beyond the obvious to solve problems.

With your application, please include a cover letter explaining why you think your professional and personal background would be a great fit for our program management team. We’re not so much interested in the traditional "on-time and under budget" mantra of project managers but would rather hear how you influence and work with teams.

About you.
