The team.

We are a rapidly growing and focused product team building the most popular job site on the planet. Every month, over 250 million people count on Indeed to help them find jobs, make it easy to apply, research companies, and connect qualified candidates to their job openings. With product teams in Austin, Tokyo, Seattle, San Francisco, Singapore and Hyderabad, we are improving people's lives all around the world, one job at a time.

Your job.

A successful VP, Product at Indeed will be a service-obsessed, highly technical, data-oriented, and team focused professional that drives vision and delivery of new and existing products and capabilities with operational excellence and cross-functional collaboration. An ideal person for this role is someone who thrives on solving complex problems, builds strong relationships with customers and peers, and executes with precision. This is a critical position that requires an individual who is a thought leader with clear communication and leadership abilities to bring scalability to products in a hyper-growth company to propel Indeed’s mission of “helping people get jobs.”

You will enjoy a casual work environment, flexible hours, and great compensation and benefits. There is a complete lack of office politics; if that is your specialty, look elsewhere.

You will wear many hats and constantly learn new things on the job. You will be surrounded by smart, dedicated, nice people. You will be proud of the company’s mission and your business area’s impact.


On your first day, we will give you a t-shirt that says, “I help people get jobs.”. Soon after, you will be wearing your shirt at the grocery store and someone will come up and say, “I love Indeed! I found my job on Indeed. Thank you!” You will smile for the rest of the day. This will happen a lot.
