Your job.

At Indeed, we focus on creating innovative systems to help match job seekers and employers. We believe that job search is not just about skill matching. A Job seeker might want to change their industry or position, or they might look for new challenges overseas. That’s why we try so hard to understand the job seeker’s job search intent and interests from various data, not only their experience and skills.
