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, fast-moving, highly-capable UX team building the most popular job site on the planet. Our designers work in Seattle, San Francisco, Austin, Tokyo and Hyderabad, collaborating with Product Managers and Engineering to deliver simple solutions to the real-world problems that job seekers and employers face hiring and getting hired. Most importantly, our team is expected to deliver results, and be able to demonstrate the impact our changes have on our business.

Your job.

We are looking for a senior researcher to lead research activities for all startup products. Initially, this means a lot of hands-on work with a high priority stealth startup. Longer term, this means collaborating with other research teams at Indeed and deciding what research practices and processes make sense for our startup portfolio.

Some of the ways you may support the team include

  • Validate new designs through ad-hoc user feedback sessions with internal users or customers
  • Plan and carry out interviews and surveys to inform future product work
  • Relationship building with key customers to gain deeper insights
  • Open-ended “show me how you use it” interviews with customers and prospects
  • Establish and manage relationships with research related vendors

About you.

  • Experience with mentoring or managing other researchers
  • Fast - Ability to quickly share research results with teams (top line results in hours, not weeks)
