Your Job

The Data Access team is a new team at Indeed which is responsible for building systems that administer and enforce Indeed’s access policies over hundreds of petabytes of data across numerous data persistence and access platforms. Some of these systems include a web application for managing permissions, an API and persistence layer to store and access permissions, and integrations with various data access systems (S3, Athena, Presto, Snowflake, custom data stores, and others) to propagate and enforce permissions.

As the Staff Software Engineer of the Data Access team, you will be responsible for working with other technical leads across Indeed to design the systems required to secure access to Indeed’s datasets. You will contribute to the delivery of these systems directly through your own code commits and indirectly through the guidance and development of other engineers on your team.

  • Guide and mentor fellow engineering team members.
