The team.

We are a rapidly growing and highly capable engineering team building the most popular job site on the planet.

With engineering hubs in Seattle, San Francisco, Austin, Tokyo and Hyderabad, we are improving people's lives all around the world, one job at a time.

The mission of the Marketplace & Measurement team at Indeed is two fold. One is to own and improve upon the current A/B testing framework for bidders, and compare the effectiveness of different bidders within the marketplace; the other is to create an understanding of the overall health of the marketplace so that we can quickly detect and diagnose any marketplace issues impacting revenue or value for our customers.

We work closely with various stakeholders (advertisers / bidders, leadership,, search engine…) to make sure they’re empowered to make reliable decisions which will help more people get jobs and drive the success of Indeed.
