IndeedEng San Francisco: 600% Growth in 2015

Indeed San Francisco is growing! It’s been a great year and we’ve enjoyed a lot of growth — starting the year with 5 people and ending with over 30!

The Indeed San Francisco office is primarily focused on product development in these areas:

  • My Jobs provides job seekers with tools to more effectively organize and manage their search for a new job. The My Jobs team uses modern web technologies like ReactJS and ES6 to create an engaging user experience across desktop and mobile.
  • The Candidate Quality team builds models to predict how good of a fit a job seeker is for an opening. These models help employers quickly assess candidates who apply to their jobs. We also use these models to ensure that our job search products are helping people find jobs that they’re qualified for.
  • The Notifications team works on Indeed’s Job Alerts as well as our internal systems and infrastructure for high-volume email and mobile push notifications. These systems generate and deliver almost a billion emails to job seekers every week.
  • New product teams use rapid prototyping and iteration to investigate product ideas. The teams identify opportunities for new products, build and launch working implementations, and collect and analyze data to validate their ideas while iterating on new features. We’re always looking for new ways to connect job seekers with their ideal jobs.

Just like all teams at Indeed, the teams in San Francisco are small, work full-stack, deploy multiple times per week, and use our powerful experimentation and analytics tools — Proctor and Imhotep — to continuously test ideas and improve our products.

This year we moved to a larger space on Market St, had two hackathons (one at a cabin in the Sierra Nevadas), took a trip to the beach in Santa Cruz, and had a holiday party on the Embarcadero.
