Working at Indeed has been rewarding, as I get to ease people’s lives (job seekers, employers and even Indeedians!) through technology, get involved with activities and initiatives in my office (e.g. Demos^3, Hackathon, etc.) and am recognised for my contributions.

Pratiksha Dey

Quality Assurance Engineer, Indeed Hyderabad

Indeed has helped me transition seamlessly into getting back to work from maternity leave in these challenging times. All my team members were approachable and were supportive of making adjustments to meetings.

In addition to a supportive team, the flexible working environment, as well as the additional YOU Days, extended to employees has really helped me bring myself back to pace while focusing on my family.
