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.

Our team owns the backend systems which provide location services to numerous products across Indeed - we help determine where a job is and where job seekers want to find their next opportunity. With location being a key component in connecting job seekers with the most relevant jobs, these services are both high-volume and critical to the functionality of many parts of the live site as well as backend processes. From job postings to job seekers, we are tasked with resolving precise locations and preferences and then leveraging those to build advanced features.


There is much opportunity for an individual on our team to make a large positive impact to the Indeed ecosystem. More importantly, this potential impact aligns well with our core mission to help people get jobs. While we do recognize and reward individual contributions, we celebrate wins as a team.

The base salary range below represents the low and high end of the Indeed salary range for this position. Actual salaries will vary and may be above or below the range based on various factors including but not limited to location, experience, and performance. The range listed is just one component of Indeed's total compensation package for employees. Other rewards may include quarterly bonuses, Long Term Incentives, an open Paid Time Off policy, and many region-specific benefits. 

Remote AMERICAS Base Salary Range: 116,000 - 142,000 USD per year

Your job.

As a senior software engineer, you will be expected to design new features, build them, and then rapidly iterate improvements. At the same time, you will be mentoring less experienced engineers, applying engineering best practices, and helping to create a culture of software quality and operational excellence. You will be working closely with other engineers on the team, a Product Manager (PM) as well as our partner team composed of GIS Analysts. Our product direction is not top-down and there are many opportunities as a software engineer to contribute ideas and suggestions to the vision.

About you.

  • 4+ years experience with a statically-typed object oriented programming language (e.g. Java, Kotlin, C++, C#, etc.)

  • Significant experience with large scale, high-performance systems

  • Experience implementing service oriented architecture (SOA) patterns
