Job Description

The Recommendation Science team builds machine learning models that recommend best-match candidates for jobs posted on Indeed. The team’s mission is to build the world’s best AI matchmaker that can connect all jobs with the right jobseekers. To achieve this, the team leverages rich data on Indeed and works closely with teams in Tokyo, Austin, and Seattle to deliver recommendations. We use various techniques related to information retrieval, ranking, deep learning, and NLP, and our engine powers multiple major Indeed products.  Also, we come from diverse backgrounds, spanning many nationalities from Asia, Europe, and the US.

You're someone who wants to see the impact of your work making a difference every day. You understand how to use data to make decisions and how to train others to do so. You find passion in the craft and are constantly seeking improvement and better ways to solve tough problems. You produce the highest quality Machine Learning solutions and lead others to do the same. You have high standards and will take pride in Indeed like we do as well as push us to be better. You have delivered challenging technical solutions at scale. You are equally happy talking about deep learning and statistical inference, as you are brainstorming about practical experimental design and technology career development. You love being in the mix technically while providing leadership to your teams.


As a Staff Data Scientist on the Recommendation Science team, you will:

  •     Build highly scalable and performant recommendation systems and technologies that can identify best matches between millions of jobs and millions of job seekers in real-time
  •     Experiment with POC ML model improvements, scale them to production, and run iterative AB experiments to improve our matching technology
  •     Represent Indeed at major ML conferences like NeurIPS, ICML, and ICLR
  •     Mentor and grow other software engineers, data scientists, and ML engineers across teams
  •     Break down larger ML initiatives into pieces that deliver incremental business value and lead the team to execute on them

Who You Are

We are looking for someone who is passionate about designing and building machine learning systems, loves intellectual challenges, is eager to learn, and wants to work with a variety of technologies to “help people get jobs”.


  •     Industry experience as a Software Engineer, Data Scientist, or Machine Learning Engineer
  •     (BS and 7+ years) OR (MS and 5+ years) OR (PhD and 2+ years) in Computer Science, Statistics, Mathematics or a closely related quantitative field
  •     Prior success deploying (impactful) Machine Learning solutions to large-scale production systems
  •     Solid knowledge of data structures and algorithms
  •     Strong sense of ownership as a technical and product leader
  •     Excellent communication skills in English, both written and verbal with both technical and business audiences

 We get excited about candidates who:

  •     Have the desire to solve difficult problems at the intersection of machine learning, data engineering, and software engineering
  •     Have extensive experience and knowledge with cloud technologies (AWS preferred)
  •     Have search technology experience such as Lucene, Solr and/or Elasticsearch
  •     Have prior success deploying Recommender Systems / Search Ranking / etc. to large-scale production systems
  •     Have an advanced degree (PhD or MS) or prior research experience in the fields of machine learning, statistics, or computer science

This position is eligible for remote work.
