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.

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.

Your job.

The Job Spotter team is building the future of job exploration. Every day, thousands of users worldwide help people find local jobs at small businesses. Our mobile apps allow people to spot local “now hiring” signs and add these jobs to the Indeed job search database. We use machine learning, social graph algorithms, and moderation to crowd source and share these job opportunities with job seekers. Our team builds innovative product features, coordinates work among different cloud services, uses ​cutting edge frameworks like React and React Native, and releases changes weekly to users.

As an Engineering Leader, you will provide hands-on leadership for a full-stack development team building and enhancing products and systems in our service-oriented, highly scalable, multi-datacenter environment. You will work with product managers, designers, and engineers to measure, analyze, and improve product metrics using tools and frameworks for large-scale product experimentation. You will coach and guide the team on project delivery including design feedback, code reviews, and production issue investigation.
