Your job.

What if an employer, within just a few hours of posting a new position, could find and speak with qualified candidates? Or if a job seeker was notified of an opening, their dream job, soon after it was posted spoke to the hiring manager and was able to get an offer and hired within just a few days? The Candidate Delivery and Quality team is focused on innovating the way people get jobs and employers hire people. We are looking for a hands-on Engineering leader to accelerate this innovation with their technical, product and people leadership. Our Senior Manager will lead a team of full-stack (backend heavy) engineers and partner with Product and other Engineering leaders in the US and Tokyo. 

As a Senior Engineering Manager, you will:
  • Build systems/technologies to identify the best matches between job seekers and employers, and turn those matches into hires.
  • Define and execute the product roadmap by collaborating with partners in Product, Design, and Operations.
  • Lead and grow a team of top-talent software engineers.

You're someone who wants to see the impact of your work making a difference every day. You understand how to use data to make decisions. You are someone who finds passion in the craft, someone constantly seeking improvement and a better way to solve tough problems. You have a passion for producing the highest quality code as well as leading others to do the same. You are someone who either has built or is passionate about building scalable, reliable systems that span multiple data centers around the world and handle millions of requests every day.

You understand that the best managers serve their teams, removing roadblocks and giving individual contributors autonomy and ownership. You are someone with high standards who will push us to be better, and who will take pride in Indeed like we do. You have delivered challenging technical solutions at scale. You have led engineering teams and earned the respect of talented software developers. You are equally happy talking algorithms and data structures as you are brainstorming about the agile development process and technology career development. You want to be in the mix technically while providing leadership to your teams.
