Indeed: The Orange Chair

Giving Jobseekers a Seat at the Table

Putting job seekers first is the fundamental principle that has driven Indeed since the start. The philosophy is ingrained in the company's culture and guides the team in their work every day. Several years ago, during a period of rapid growth, Indeed CTO Andrew Hudson came up with the idea to place an orange chair in every meeting room in Indeed's offices. The eye-catching chairs were meant to remind team members that the job seeker should always have a seat at the table, and every decision should consider what is best for the job seeker. Since then, Indeed has grown into the world's top job search site with over 250 million unique visitors per month. Orange chairs remain in every Indeed meeting room today.
