Your job

Indeed is looking for a Manager within the Jobseeker organisation to focus on Site Reliability Engineering (SRE). In this role you will apply software engineering techniques and discipline to production operations, attacking reliability and performance issues and fixing them for good. You and your team will have the chance to influence the direction of a critical global SRE organization. In this role, you will see ample opportunities for growth in many areas of technology, leadership, mentorship, design, and more.

As an SRE in the Jobseeker organisation, you will be responsible for the reliability and robustness of some of our most prominent user-facing products across Indeed. Some numbers to reflect the scale of this responsibility: 


  • We serve 250M global unique visitors per month 
  • 25M unique jobs
  • 60+ Countries
  • 28 Languages
  • From multiple data centers around the globe


At this scale, even everyday programming tasks become interesting! If you’re the type of person who gets excited by these types of challenges rather than intimidated by them, then you’re likely a good fit for our team.

Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) at Indeed are embedded directly within our business-critical engineering teams, working closely with them to design, code, test, run, and evolve the systems that help people around the world get jobs. We work closely with software developers and system engineers to drive the adoption of modern reliability practices like SLOs, error budget policies, actionable alerts, follow-the-sun on-call, incident retrospectives, chaos testing, and end-to-end ownership.

Simply put, as a part of the SRE organisation, you will help Indeed build and operate fast and reliable systems that help people get jobs. Are you up for the challenge?



  • Own availability and performance for some of Indeed’s most critical products
  • Foster an environment of continuous learning that builds excellent engineering skill sets
  • Guide multiple teams to design, develop, write, and ship software and systems to increase reliability and operational efficiency
  • Work closely with other leaders across teams and cities to improve alignment, communication, and collaboration between SRE and other functions
  • Help engineers and managers develop their careers through personalized coaching and performance management

Who You Are


  • 3-5+ years of experience leading site reliability or software engineering teams with a consistent record of high-quality, iterative delivery for large, cross-functional projects
  • Solid knowledge of data structures and algorithms and excellent programming skills
  • Ability to motivate and guide a team to achieve important goals together
  • Desire to improve reliability, performance, scalability, and operations using software engineering techniques at scale
  • Significant experience building systems in Java, Go, Python, Node.js or similar languages
  • Strong interest in SRE topics like resilience, scaling, performance, SLOs, and more

We get excited about candidates who have:

  • A passion for problem solving in a large complex system
  • Familiar with Kubernetes, Kafka, RabbitMQ, MongoDB, MySql
  • Experience designing, writing, and/or troubleshooting software and systems in a distributed, internet-scale Linux environment
