Indeed is often lauded as the #1 job posting site and the engine that delivers more hires and interviews than any other single source on the web.
Indeed was co-founded by Paul Forster and Rony Kahan in 2004. Initially launched as a job posting aggregator, in short order Indeed expanded its services to include digital resume hosting, salary reporting, and job recommendations, which aligns with its mission of bringing together qualified candidates and jobseekers.
Indeed’s job posting site features an easy-to-use interface that allows jobseekers to filter job postings by location, industry, company, job type, salary, and more. This is great for employers because when jobseekers can find exactly the type of job they are looking for, employers receive more applications from qualified candidates. Want to increase the number of applicants for your job post? Indeed’s “1-Click Apply” lets jobseekers submit their resumes to job openings instantly.
Many big-name companies use the Indeed job posting site in their recruiting efforts, from database website Investopedia to fast food chain In-n-Out Burger to software companies like Google and Apple. It has also acquired Simply Hired, expanding its job search channels.

3. What differentiates you from other job posting sites on the web?
Indeed is the most comprehensive and effective online job site in the world. For 13 years we have been perfecting the art of getting the most jobs to the most people – and we use all of the data we’ve collected to help us keep improving our user experience and customer service. We have millions of jobs that can’t be found anywhere else because employers post more than three jobs directly to Indeed each year.
Indeed’s entire business model is designed to help people get jobs, and we feel this resonates with jobseekers. Features like tailored search and alerts, the ability to apply in one-click on mobile, our company reviews, and salary data are all designed to help jobseekers at each stage of the journey find the jobs they want.
Our mobile app has been downloaded more than 100 million times, making it the number one job app in the U.S. The app makes it easy for people to apply to jobs from their phones with just one click, using the resume they’ve stored on the website.
4. What are the benefits that employers get when their job appears on your platform?
Indeed has more than 90 million jobseekers who have posted resumes on Indeed, making it the most trafficked job site in the world. As a result, employers who post their jobs to Indeed are giving their roles great visibility. To further boost a job ad’s performance, employers can choose to sponsor a job to ensure even greater visibility by qualified candidates.
5. What do you think the new Google for Jobs news means for your job posting site?
Indeed has been in business for 13 years and is focused on doing what’s best for jobseekers. This is its sole mission, and the mission of the company’s more than 5,000 employees. With
more than 20 million jobs on the site and 200 million unique visitors each month, we’re confident that Indeed will continue to be successful no matter who enters this space.
6. What advice would you give to employers who want their job posting to attract the best candidates possible?
Sponsoring jobs on Indeed is one way to make your opportunities stand out since job posts that are sponsored by employers remain high in the search results for longer. Sponsored jobs are based on a pay-for-performance model: a company decides how much to spend, and in return Indeed delivers relevant high-quality candidate traffic. When a company invests in a sponsored post, they can craft recruitment campaigns, track the return on investment, and can be assured that they are reaching the widest audience of qualified jobseekers.
If an employer is looking for hard-to-find, specialized or technical talent, like software engineers, we encourage them to try Indeed Prime. Indeed Prime gives employers access to vetted technical talent, all of whom have passed a rigorous screening process and been vetted for standout characteristics, such as past work with reputable companies. Before employers see their credentials, Indeed’s career coaches have reached out to Indeed Prime candidates to assess their level of interest in finding a new role. Only those who have been identified as being open to new opportunities receive final approval. This saves recruiters time reaching out to candidates who aren’t interested in making a career move.
7. What’s one thing that hiring leaders might not know about your job posting services?
It’s always free to post a job on Indeed!
