Your job.

As an engineer on the Privacy and Data Governance Engineering Team, you’re working to improve how we manage, govern, and protect the information Indeed uses to operate. As a job search company, Indeed connects millions of job seekers and employers daily. With the amount of data that we process and the sensitive nature of the data, we have a responsibility to ensure that we’re properly handling and securing user data as well as respecting users' rights over their personal data. As our products evolve and datasets grow, it is also important to be able to understand the data to enable automatic classification and management of the data.


Working on the Privacy and Data Governance Engineering team is about growing the understanding of our data and building automation around these governance processes. You will be building a platform that discovers and inventories all of our datasets to extract relevant metadata in order to enable automatic classification and ensure compliance with various privacy laws and regulations.


As data privacy becomes more important and awareness increases, you will influence how the product engineering organization applies privacy-by-design principles to our everyday work. You will design and build scalable solutions that make it easy for product teams to maintain compliance, increase the understanding of the data, and help increase awareness of data management processes throughout the engineering organization.
