@IndeedEng Presents: The Art and Science of Product Metrics in San Francisco and Seattle

Indeed Engineering is hosting talks on the art and science of product metrics in San Francisco and Seattle during the month of August.

Ketan Gangatirkar, VP of Engineering for Indeed’s Job Seeker products, will discuss choosing metrics that work, because every story of metrics gone wrong is really a story of badly chosen metrics. Attendees will leave this talk with a greater understanding of data science and concrete strategies for using data to improve their processes and products.

This talk aims to help product managers, tech leads, managers, and data scientists become better at their work. You’ll gain insights and knowledge if you’re in one of these roles or aspiring to be—or you’re just curious.

This is an extended edition of the talk presented at O’Reilly Strata, London.

Open Source At Indeed: Sponsoring Webpack

Indeed is proud to announce our sponsorship of webpack. Like many other companies, Indeed uses webpack to help deliver a high-quality user experience. Because webpack is so important to our development process, we’re joining our industry peers in supporting and sponsoring the development of this critical open source technology.

Rebecca Murphey, Front-End Engineering Lead at Indeed, notes that “Webpack has been such a key tool in my team’s work to modernize and optimize the front-end development experience at Indeed. I’m so proud that we’re able to give a little bit back to a tool and a community that has provided so much value for us.”  

Sean Larkin, from the webpack core team, says, “We are extremely proud and humbled by Indeed’s decision to sponsor webpack. When you sponsor a project, you are not only becoming a stakeholder, but also an investor in your own infrastructure that you rely on every day. It makes a statement that says: ‘We love open source and want to hire people who know and love webpack.’ We look forward to our new partnership with Indeed and are excited to have tight feedback between their team, and help solve problems that not only create lasting value for Indeed, but the open source ecosystem as a whole.”

As Indeed continues to take a more active role in the open source community, we will seek out additional partnerships, sponsorships, and memberships.

Recently, Indeed joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and now sponsors:

Open Source at Indeed: Sponsoring the Apache Software Foundation

As Indeed continues to grow our commitment to the open source community, we are pleased to announce our sponsorship of the Apache Software Foundation. Earlier this year, we joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and began sponsoring the Python Software Foundation. For Indeed, this is just the beginning of our work with open source initiatives. 

“We are thrilled to have Indeed join us as a Gold sponsor. We really appreciate their support for open source,” said ASF Chairman Phil Steitz. “Their sponsorship will help our project communities continue to grow, providing great opportunities for thousands of volunteers, and great software for billions of users.”

The Apache Software Foundation is home to a wide range of open source software software that runs up and down our organization from Apache Mesos to Apache Commons and everywhere in between. The Apache Software Foundation provides a neutral home to critical software that runs the internet as we know it. Supporting this organization was an easy decision for Indeed, and we’re pleased to add our name to a roster that includes many of our industry peers. We are looking forward to becoming long-term supporters of this organization, both as financial sponsors and code contributors.

As we continue to take a more active role in the open source community, Indeed will seek out additional partnerships, sponsorships, and memberships.
