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 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.

The base salary range below represents the low and high end of the Indeed salary range for this position. Actual salaries will vary and may be above or below the range based on various factors including but not limited to location, experience, and performance. The range listed is just one component of Indeed's total compensation package for employees. Other rewards include quarterly bonuses, Long Term Incentive Plan units, an open Paid Time Off policy, and many region-specific benefits.

Your job.

Indeed has a very simple mission: We help people get jobs.

And the Hiring business area, to which our team belongs, contributes to that overall mission with a more specific one: We help employers hire.

Our team, Advertising, aims to contribute to that mission in our own specific way: We help employers hire quickly and cheaply.

Our mission (helping employers hire quickly and cheaply) is more important than our metric (total revenue). In the vast majority of situations these will actually likely be aligned with each other, but we believe if there ever is an opportunity to help make hiring more efficient we should take it, even if it won't affect our revenue.

We are looking for a Product Director to lead our Enterprise Advertising team in Sunnyvale, California. What is the job? As a Product Director at Indeed, you will own several products and manage multiple Product Managers who extend your vision and influence. You and your team, not the CEO, will decide how to grow your products to further the company goals of helping people find jobs and growing revenue. Product Managers at Indeed are analytical, creative, and collaborative. We obsess over data and drive for simplicity. You will guide the team by exemplifying these core values. Product Managers have the responsibility to deliver results, but no authority over peers in Engineering.

You will create MVPs, prototypes of new products, simple tests to validate ideas and iterate. You will NOT be an armchair Product Manager writing large PRDs and handing them off to the development team. Most Product Managers at Indeed don"t even know what a PRD is. 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 products' impact.

About you.

Please note: This position is slated to sit in Sunnyvale, California.

You're someone who wants to see the impact of your work making a difference every day. Your friends describe you as thorough, analytical and detail-oriented. You are someone with high standards who leads by example, and who will take pride in Indeed like we do.
