Your job.

The opportunity.

Indeed has a simple mission: help people get jobs. However, various segments of job seekers and jobs are vastly different based on their specific situation and needs. Examples of different segments include occupations (e.g. truck drivers), industry (e.g. healthcare), types of work (e.g. part-time, relocation) as well as different salary ranges (e.g. > $100K jobs). 

As a Senior UX Designer with the Segmentation Team, you will collaborate with cross-functional team members to create elegant and simple solutions for specific user segments. You will understand the job seekers (and employers) in that segment and what is important to them, both by working together with existing teams at Indeed (e.g. segment managers, UX research, taxonomy, data science, sales, client success, and many more) and engaging with users directly. You’ll be responsible for driving a collaborative design process to develop insights, uncover opportunities and turn ideas into tangible improvements to the user experience. 

Responsibilities.

  • Ship improvements that enhance the experience for specific user segments

  • Deeply understand specific segments of users (both job seekers and employers)

  • Design and validate solutions to real customer problems

  • Foster collaboration across a variety of disciplines, including segment management, UX research, design technology, content strategy, taxonomy, engineering and product science

  • Use quantitative and qualitative methods to uncover user patterns, behaviors and intent; translate these findings into designs for tailoring the experience for different segments

  • Lead design reviews and critique

  • Mentor and help designers within your team and the broader Indeed design community to create world-class product experiences. 

  • Lead initiatives to quickly improve both the visual design and user experience of Indeed.com

  • Facilitate and participate in design sprints, design jams, hackathons or workshops.

  • 3+ years of shipping product experiences

  • Entrepreneurial spirit with the ability to autonomously and continually improve the quality of the experience of your product areas

  • Experience in forging partnerships while being a successful advocate for Design to Product and Engineering leadership

  • Ability to collaborate flawlessly with multiple disciplines (Design, Product, Engineering, Marketing, Research, and Sales)

  • Capable of toggling between the 1-year out and the 1-week out, and forging the connections between the two

  • Relentless attention to detail with a user-centered approach

  • Ability to think strategically and manage responsibilities against defined milestones, and plan with minimal day-to-day oversight

  • Experience in (or desire to learn) quantitative data analysis a plus
