AUSTIN, TX – March 27, 2014 – With more than 140 million unique monthly visitors, Indeed has surpassed the competition as the #1 job site in the world transforming the way people get hired.
Year on year growth for the company showed a 40% increase in unique monthly visitors over the same period in January. In addition, the company showed major growth in the mobile space with 45% of searches coming from the company’s mobile app and through the mobile website.
For more than nine years, Indeed has been changing the way candidates find the right job and employers find the right candidates. Job seekers trust Indeed to find all jobs in a single search – with 16 million jobs available on Indeed.com and more than 8 jobs added each second. As the top source for employers, Indeed currently has 25 million resumes available and 15 million added in the last year. The result is more than 1.7 million people have shared their story of getting a job at Gotajob.Indeed.com, an Indeed site that celebrates the real-life stories of people who found the right job on Indeed.
Indeed’s mission is to connect job seekers with the right employer. With more than 4 million reviews of employers on the Indeed site, job seekers can learn more about an employer before deciding to interview for or accept a role with a company. In addition, these employer reviews also allow the companies themselves to see and understand what candidates are looking for when applying. According to research commissioned by Indeed, 83% of users said that reviews influence their decision of where to apply and 46% said that company reputation has a big influence on the decision to accept a job.
“Our growth as a company is only measured by the success of those job seekers who have used Indeed to find the right opportunity or employer. The number of positions filled and testimonials received from employers and job seekers tells the full story and purpose behind Indeed’s model of bringing employers and qualified candidates together,” said Paul D’Arcy, SVP of Marketing at Indeed.
In the past six months, the company has also opened new offices in a number of international locations including Amsterdam, Düsseldorf, Sydney, Tokyo and Toronto as well as expanded its existing offices and workforce in both London and Dublin.
