From its humble beginnings in a shared office and Indeed’s first international office outside of the United States, Indeed’s London office has come a long way from when there was a rota to empty the dishwasher and a pool table with no legs. Hear from a few of the first employees who share their story of what it was like working #insideindeed in the beginning to now.
“Indeed accommodated me, not only for short term, but for long term. There were no if, and, or buts. It made me feel confident that I work for a company that wanted to support me through the hard times.” Shawtelle is a Senior Account Executive based in Toronto, CA. She shares the trials and tribulations she faced during her pregnancy right before the pandemic, how Indeed supported her, and why joining Sales at Indeed is the best career decision she has ever made. #insideindeed
“As an out and proud trans man, I want to lead visibly so others like me understand that they can do it too, and there is space for us at the top! Secondly, I wanted to help folks understand their power to make the changes necessary to drive a culture of belonging. We all need safe spaces. When you feel you belong somewhere, you will come back to that space. When you come back you build connections, and through connection, we experience emotional and physical safety. This is why Inclusion Resource Groups (IRGs) are a must, and why access to iPride involvement is essential for every Indeedian." - Ryker, iPride Executive Community Engagement Lead - Americas Happy Pride Month! Thank you, Ryker, for sharing your story of why you #BelongatIndeed. To learn more about Ryker's story, keep an eye out for his interview with our CEO, Chris Hyams in our 'Here to Help' series #insideindeed."
"In the beginning, I thought it would be a challenge to get onboarded remotely but it has been a smooth and streamlined process thus far." Ashley Chan graduated from the National Technological University in Singapore at the end of 2020 with a degree in Computer Engineering. As a Software Engineer, he shares his 2-month experience from the interview, virtual onboarding and how it has been since he joined us #insideindeed.
“Serving as Indeed’s iPride Inclusion Resource Group (IRG) Executive Sponsor provides me the ability to interact with our LGBTQIA+ Indeedians and allies in a different role than my usual job as head of HR. I work with them as an advisor and supporter but they drive the cause and are coming up with the ideas. It is great to see our employees grow into leadership roles in our IRGs. Understanding has been the greatest impact of all of our IRGs on our business. They help other Indeedians understand what the world is like through the eyes of those around them, and they have helped our business understand how to create products and tools for ALL jobseekers. I hope that I am viewed as an Executive Sponsor that supports, shows up when I am needed to guide, and ultimately help iPride achieve its goals.” - Paul Wolfe, Executive Sponsor, iPride As we celebrate Pride Month, we recognize the importance of strong leadership setting an example, and ensuring our dedication to inclusion and belonging #insideindeed. Thank you for your leadership, Paul.
It's YOU Day at Indeed! #FlashbackFriday to when it all started. Since May 2020, Indeedians around the globe have enjoyed an extra day off every month, in addition to our open PTO. From catching up on zZz's to quality time with family, we recharge so we can continue our mission of helping all people get jobs. We hope everyone has time today to rejuvenate themselves and relax whether you’re #insideindeed or out! 💙 How would you spend an extra day off every month?
“I have a one-year old kid at home and managing office timing with him was difficult, but Indeed’s open culture helps me overcome these difficulties. We’re very open with each other when communicating with team members, and the leadership team has always focused on flexibility, which really helps us deliver our work while managing our personal life. We even have a ‘Stress Cop’ in the team to ensure the workload is distributed fairly and we’re coping well with work.” In this blog, Indeedians #insideindeed India share their challenges with working from home, and how they’ve overcome them over the past year.
“We are not a support engineering function or support engineering team set up in Tokyo, Singapore, and Hyderabad. We actually build products out of all these three locations."

In this Culture Matters podcast, he also talks about the difference between sourcers and recruiters and what it takes to be part of his team #insideindeed 🔊 https://indeedhi.re/3gkyCKd
