Indeed.jobs is the company's employee recruitment hub. One can search for open jobs, read the employee-run blog, and learn all about the benefits of working for the world's #1 job site.

The existing site had been piecemealed together over time which resulted in a confusing and fragmented user experience. We needed to do a complete overhaul of the structure of the site, as well as the microsites nested within.
Make it easier for users to find jobs at Indeed and other content they need by reorganizing the site structure.
Reduce the overall amount of pages by embedding relevant info within individual job post pages.
Create a cohesive experience by pulling from the new brand guidelines as well as the indeed.com product.
Reflect Indeed's commitment to diversity and inclusion by allocating an entire page for that content.
After researching other global tech company's employee recruitment websites, we began reorganizing the existing experience to be more streamlined. Then we took a modular approach to create the pages using elements from other recently designed marketing websites for consistency.
We presented clickable wireframes to the stakeholders and once we got their approval, we moved into the design stage which was where we added the bulk of the styling.
Full disclosure: This was the first website to use the newly rolled-out brand guidelines, so sometimes it felt like we were building the ship as we were sailing in it! But such is life in the design world.
Overall, the entire project went smoothly because the feedback we received in each round was minimal.
It became important at times for me to know how to talk about what was available with the new brand with the stakeholders. They were used to having access to a wider variety of brand elements and not needing to abide by accessibility guidelines.
I learned to level out expectations while drumming up excitement for what we did have to work with at the time.
