Aligned to the Candidate side of the market, the focus is to build a detailed information asset that powers a highly personalised Seek experience, to allow candidates to stand out with trust and to apply with ease. The primary functions of the team are the Sign in & Register experience, Profile and verified claims, as well as the on-platform application experience.
This team consists of 2 sub-teams covering Profile and Apply mobile and web experiences. The team works very closely with the Marketplace Services teams and hirer teams.

The platform will support more than 250+ million people across APAC so your ability to impact will be profound. Seek is one of the most mature Agile organizations in the country and as part of this program you will collaborate with local and global tech leaders to refine your skills and learn new ways of working.
