Your job.

Our team owns Hiring Events, a product within Indeed’s job advertising ecosystem that helps employers hire more efficiently by letting jobseekers RSVP to an interview in lieu of applying to the job, effectively skipping directly to an interview. The product has recently “exited” from the internal incubator and is currently the fastest growing product at Indeed.  


When you come to work on the Hiring Events team, you’ll be working with a small team of problem solvers who exhibit high energy, deep technical skills and a dedication to experiment. 


The Hiring Events team is seeking a software engineering manager to lead the initiative to design, build, and launch a new web/mobile application to create and manage hiring events. This application will replace the existing technology for performing these functions and enable us to take advantage of new business opportunities.

  • We use rapid application development technology
  • We instrument our code liberally with analytics so we can see what’s happening
  • We release daily
