Indeed.com is an American worldwide employment-related search engine for job listings launched in November 2004. As a single-topic search engine, it is also an example of vertical search. Indeed is currently available in over 60 countries and 28 languages. In October 2010, Indeed.com passed Monster.com to become the highest-traffic job website in the United States.
The site aggregates job listings from thousands of websites, including job boards, staffing firms, associations, and company career pages. In 2011, Indeed began allowing job seekers to apply directly to jobs on Indeed’s site and offering resume posting and storage. Indeed is based in Austin, TX but has offices around the world.
Indeed was co-founded by Paul Forster and Rony Kahan. Indeed Corporate Headquarters is located in Austin, Texas.
In 2005, Indeed launched their beta version of what they refer to as “pay-per-click job advertising network”.In addition to searching job postings, it also allows the occurrence of words therein to be plotted over time, ostensibly as an indicator of trends in the job markets.
On October 1, 2012, Indeed became an independent operating unit of Recruit Co. Ltd. On July 1, 2016, Recruit Holdings Co., Ltd. announced that it has acquired the assets of Indeed competitor Simply Hired, which would become a publishing partner of Indeed.
