Indeed Launches New Product Designed to Discover Top Tech Talent

Indeed Prime uses multiple criteria to match engineers, designers and
product managers with employers

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Indeed, the world’s largest job site, announced today it has launched Indeed
Prime
, a specialty job site that provides employers with top talent
based on coding skills, education and work experience. This product is
specifically designed to address the growing need for technical talent
in a variety of industries.

“It is increasingly competitive for companies to find the technical
talent they need as companies ramp up their demand for these
professionals,” said Terence Chiu, VP of Product at Indeed. “Employers
that use Prime will find talent that they wouldn’t normally see through
traditional university recruiting, staffing agencies and job postings.”

Indeed Prime hosts online coding competitions open to anyone authorized
to work in the U.S. to help discover hidden talent. The top performers
are highlighted to employers, showcasing candidates who have proven
technical capability. “Our data shows that some of our best performers
at the coding competitions are not necessarily from top engineering
schools,” said Chiu. “Prime shows employers a host of talented people
that may have been overlooked in the past. Combine that with the largest
network of job seekers and we have a constant pipeline of tech talent
for employers.”

“I was the only recruiter at my company tasked with hiring dozens of
positions, including the competitive roles of developers and product
managers,” said Katie Smith, HR Generalist at Sparefoot, a technology
startup based in Austin, who was part of the pilot. “Indeed Prime really
simplified my job by bringing me the best candidates quickly, allowing
me to make hires within a couple of weeks.”

Benefits to job seekers include:

  • Opportunity to break into a top technology company with strong
    performance at coding competition
  • Access to top technology opportunities at startups, technology and
    Fortune 500 companies
  • Talent coach providing support throughout hiring process
  • $5,000 signing bonus from Indeed
  • Access to the most jobs online through Indeed’s network

Benefits to employers include:

  • Curated list of top candidates
  • Diverse list of candidates including coding competition standouts,
    experienced engineers and recent graduates
  • An average candidate response rate of 80%
  • Access to the most job seekers through Indeed’s network

Indeed Prime is currently available in Austin, Boston, San Francisco,
Seattle and New York City. Indeed Prime is only available to direct
employers, providing job seekers access to employers without
overwhelming them with third-party recruiters. Learn more at indeed.com/prime.
