At Indeed, our primary technology stack is Java-based, but we believe strongly in using the right tool for the right job.  As such, we’re rapidly adopting emerging best-of-breed technologies and incorporating them into our stack. This includes things like React/Redux, React Native, Python/Django, MongoDB, Go, and Mesos, to name a few.  Additionally, sometimes the right tool for the job doesn’t exist, so we’ve created and open-sourced a number of our core systems.
