Your job.

As a senior front end software engineer on this team, you will be responsible for designing and developing resilient, scalable solutions that help deliver some of the most critical user interface at Indeed. You’ll work closely with your own team, and teams across Indeed, to identify and understand opportunities to deliver on the team’s mission, and then execute on those opportunities. The work you do will affect the user experience of the vast majority of Indeed traffic, so you’ll be thoughtful and vigilant about risk and tradeoffs in the solutions you build. 

Strong technical skills will be essential to success, but we’ll also look to you to have a strong product sense, a focus on the success of our internal customers, and a desire to identify and execute on impactful work. 

You’ll have opportunities to mentor other engineers, and to receive mentorship from some of the most senior engineers at Indeed. The team you’ll join is still in its early days, but it’s already registered significant wins that are driving real impact for the business. With a potential scope that spans much of Indeed’s global product/engineering organization, you’ll have real opportunities for growth within and beyond the team. 

About you.

You have experience or at least a strong interest in building systems that are used by more than one product or team. You’ve probably worked on web applications before, so you understand HTTP and the constraints of the browser and network. At the same time, you’re happy to work anywhere in the stack; you’re more focused on writing impactful code than on the language you’re writing it in. You have experience with deploying applications to production, making sure those applications are observable, and debugging production issues when they occur. You’re motivated by opportunities to help other teams be successful.


  • 5+ years experience in front end software engineering, including experience with web application development at scale.

  • Demonstrated success working on front end software engineering problems that span multiple products.

  • Demonstrated ability to communicate effectively with other software engineers.

  • Evidence of a strong sense of ownership and product understanding.

  • Ability to be rapidly effective with Java, JavaScript, React and TypeScript; it’s OK if you don’t have past experience in these languages, but we expect you to become productive with them.

Indeed provides a variety of benefits that help us focus on our mission of helping people get jobs.
