AUSTIN, Texas (February 8, 2016) – Indeed announced today it started 2016 with record unique visitors, with more than 200 million over the past 31 days. Indeed also announced it added eight additional markets where job seekers will have access to the most jobs on the web. The announcement builds upon a strong 2015, which solidified Indeed’s position as the number one job site in the world. Indeed reported a 57% year-over-year revenue increase from January to June 2015.
“Indeed continues to expand its global community of job seekers,” said Indeed SVP Paul D’Arcy. “In response to further labor market tightening in 2016, people looking for jobs have more control of their destinies, and many are actively looking for their next position. With over 16 million postings and over 10 million global company reviews, Indeed is uniquely positioned to help job seekers find the job that’s right for them.”
Traffic to Indeed’s website illustrates continued demand from job seekers across a range of industries and positions. Indeed’s record 200 million unique visitors cements its lead as the most trafficked job site in the world. As the below chart illustrates, Indeed’s traffic far exceeds other job sites.
Indeed has also launched eight new country sites to continue its rapid global growth: Costa Rica, Ecuador, Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria, Panama, Ukraine and Uruguay. Indeed now operates in over 60 countries. To keep pace with global growth, Indeed hired aggressively in 2015, bringing its total number of employees to over 2,400 globally.
“These are impressive numbers but the most important measure of success for Indeed is the number of job seekers who have used Indeed to find the right opportunity,” says D’Arcy. “We’ll continue to build on Indeed’s mission bringing employers and qualified candidates together.”
