Stack Overflow and Indeed Partner to Support Developers in their Job Search with the Launch of Stack Overflow Jobs

Collaboration will focus on resources and content to aid the world’s most sought after tech talent in their job search and ongoing career development.

NEW YORK CITY, NY and AUSTIN, TX,– May 8, 2024 Stack Overflow and Indeed today announced the next evolution of their longstanding partnership to deliver on the career development needs of the world’s most active developers, help companies improve their employer branding and hire hard-to-fill tech roles. The two companies will assist job seekers at every stage of their career, from seasoned professionals to those just getting started, and support searches for a variety of technology roles including front end to back end engineering to SRE and more.

More developers are looking for or are open to a new job now compared to the last two years—that’s according to the results of the Stack Overflow Knows Job Report in October of 2023. More than 1,000 developers responded to the survey about jobs and 79% are at least considering new opportunities, if not actively looking. In addition to this, Generative AI will democratize coding and grow the developer community by several folds. If there are 20-25 million developers now, this could lead to a 10x growth of this important group. Through the partnership, Stack Overflow and Indeed aim to help developers and technologists find the right opportunities for their valuable skill sets and grow their careers with companies across every industry. These efforts include:

  • The launch of Stack Overflow Jobs, powered by Indeed, a new co-branded job site for developers and technologists. Stack Overflow offers a suite of employer branding solutions to help organizations attract and engage the right tech talent. With the addition of Stack Overflow Jobs, employers can now support their recruitment initiatives by posting open roles on a specialized job site for developers and technologists. Stack Overflow Jobs will put thousands of highly-relevant job openings at the fingertips of job seekers. The job site is currently available in the U.S. and may expand to more markets in the future.
  • Inclusion in Indeed’s first Specialist Media Network, the Indeed Tech Network. This feature distributes employer job ads and employer brand ads across more than 50 technology-specific sites through partnerships with WIRED, VentureBeat, Stack Overflow, and more. Employers using this network to hire are already seeing uplifts in relevant applications for tech roles–on average, employers experienced a 4.1X increase in relevant applications from skilled candidates. Indeed's Tech Network is now available in multiple markets, including the US, Canada, UK, India, France, and Germany.
  • Joint go-to-market efforts to help employers meet tech talent where they are. Stack Overflow and Indeed have committed to partnering together across a broad range of integrated go-to-market activities across sales and marketing, including the ability for Indeed to sell Stack Overflow’s employer branding solutions and create co-branded content tailored to technical job seekers.

“Our mission has always been empowering the world to develop technology through collective knowledge,” said Prashanth Chandrasekar, CEO of Stack Overflow. “We are excited to bring together the world's largest and most trusted community for developers and technologists and Indeed’s global hiring platform."

“Indeed is dedicated to helping people find jobs,” Iain Hamilton, VP of Product at Indeed. “Expanding our work with Stack Overflow is integral to helping both job seekers find their next role and companies find and hire the world’s most technically talented employees.”
