Indeed: Delivering More Jobs Than Any Other Site
The number one job site in the world, Indeed was launched in 2004 by Paul Forster and Rony Kahan. With offices in the US, England, and Ireland, Indeed gives job seekers in more than 50 countries free access to millions of jobs from thousands of job boards, company websites, newspapers, and associations. A recent study by SilkRoad revealed that Indeed delivers more hires than CareerBuilder, Monster, and LinkedIn combined. In January 2013, the site saw over 100 million unique visitors who searched and applied to jobs, posted resumes, researched salaries, rated and reviewed companies, and more. In fact, Indeed pulls in more than half of the job search traffic in the US. Global traffic continues to increase as well, with the fastest growth happening in Russia, Japan, Australia, India, and South Africa.
According to vice president of product Chris Hyams, “We've been working incredibly hard to get jobs the minute they are posted in every country. Our key metric is people getting jobs.” He also shares that since its inception, the company has remained focused on having more jobs on the site, making the site as fast as possible, and providing the best possible experience for job seekers.
At any given time, there are 16 million jobs in every industry, at every skill level, and in every country on Indeed. The site's comprehensiveness attracts more than one new account every second, which translates to over 3 million new signups per month. This past January alone, job hunters posted 2 million resumes, conducted 3 billion searches, and those who got jobs shared 57,000 success stories. Indeed also reigns on mobile, ranking first among job apps for Android, iPhone, and iPad. A third of all searches on Indeed come from a mobile device. And while Indeed is already the world's leading job site, the company intends to continuously improve the experience of finding jobs for its millions of users.
