Your job.

Indeed is a job seeker-centric platform. You and your team will lead efforts to ensure when a job seeker types in a query and browses job search results, that the jobs they find meet both their expectations as well as the high-quality standards of Indeed. Our current approach to search quality requires significant human intervention, but as we scale, we need to develop tools and systems to detect poor search results more effectively and efficiently. You will have the opportunity to drive change and facilitate the shift from human-led processes to technology-based systems for search quality.
