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, 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.

You would be working within our young and growing San Francisco office on mobile UI - native and web, design system, and advanced prototypes. Although we are known mostly for job search we have a range of related products serving both job seekers and employers.  


What would you be doing?

  • Define the interaction and/or interface for new products and features.
  • Work closely with product and engineering teams to know what is possible and how to have the most impact
  • Present designs as necessary to stakeholders, design team, and management
  • Our process is pretty fluid: you’ll develop prototypes, screenshots, wireframes -- whatever gets the job done.
  • Quickly and thoughtfully incorporate team feedback into designs.
  • Validate your designs through A/B testing (working with product management) and/or qualitative user research (either yourself or working with a UX researcher)

About you.

Requirements

  • A portfolio that demonstrates experience designing usable interfaces and interactions
  • You have at least 2 of these skills: visual design, interaction design (IxD), front-end engineering, user research
  • Able to autonomously and continually improve the quality of our products
  • Experience with consumer web-based products
  • Familiarity working with researchers and a/b testing to evaluate designs
  • Prototyping with tools such as Balsamiq, Invision, Principle, etc.

Extra credit

  • CSS & HTML
  • Mobile experience strongly preferred
  • Advanced prototyping / code
  • Design for responsive / adaptive / progressive
  • All levels of prototyping

And why would you want to work here?


People like it here
People tend to stick around. Part of our high retention rate may be due to our fairly strict "no jerks" policy.


Indeed is useful and successful

People all over the world were looking for jobs last year and they will be looking for them next year. Recruitment is a mature, established industry with billions of dollars flowing through it. We've been profitable for years, and are a market leader not just in the US, but all over the world.


We make money in a way you can be proud of
Some companies try to take advantage of people looking for jobs, we don't. You can explain how we make money to anyone and they aren't going to get creeped out. We provide employers a great service at a great price, and we don't take money from people who are looking for work.


Job seekers and employers love us
We get testimonials from people looking for jobs and people who are hiring all the time. People love Indeed. Those who don’t typically haven’t heard of us.


You'll be working on something that matters
Finding a job is an emotional experience, and finding a good job directly impacts the quality of people’s lives. Not only financially; people spend about as much time with who they work with as the people they love. You'll directly contribute to the well being of everyone who uses our products.


If you are genuinely interested in helping make products that people love to use, treats them with respect, helps them achieve their goals, and want to help us continue to build a sustainable business, we look forward to hearing from you.
