At Indeed, open source is at the core of everything we do. Our collaboration with the open source community allows us to develop solutions that help people get jobs.

As active participants in the community, we believe it is important to give back. This is why we are dedicated to making meaningful contributions to the open source ecosystem.

We’re proud to announce our continuing support by renewing our sponsorship for these foundations and organizations.


The ASF thanks Indeed for their continued generosity as an Apache Software Foundation Sponsor at the Gold level. In addition, Indeed has expanded on their support by providing our awesome ASF Infrastructure team the opportunity to leverage Indeed.com job listing and advertising resources. This helped us bring on new hires to ensure Apache Infrastructure services continue to run 24x7x365 at near 100% uptime. We are grateful for their involvement, which, in turn, benefits the greater Apache community.

— Daniel Ruggeri, VP Fundraising, Apache Software Foundation


CNCF is thrilled to have Indeed as a member of the Foundation. They have been a great addition to our growing end-user community. Indeed’s participation in this vibrant ecosystem helps in driving adoption of cloud native computing across industries. We’re looking forward to working with them to help continue to grow our community.

— Dan Kohn, Executive Director, Cloud Native Computing Foundation


Indeed’s active engagement with open source communities highlights that open source software is now fundamental, not only for businesses, but developers as well.

Like most companies today, Indeed is a user of and contributor to open source software, and interestingly, Indeed’s research of resumes shows developers are too — as job seekers highlight open source skills and experience to win today’s most sought after jobs across technology.

— Patrick Masson, General Manager at the OSI


We’re so happy that Indeed continues to join our sponsors — making it possible for us to provide critical opportunities to people who are impacted by systemic bias, underrepresentation and discrimination — and helping them get introduced to free and open source software.

— Karen Sandler, Executive Director, Software Freedom Conservancy


Participation in the PSF Sponsorship Plan shows Indeed’s support of our mission to promote the development of the Python programming language and the growth of its international community. Sponsorships, like Indeed’s, fund programs that help provide opportunities for underrepresented groups in technology and shows support for open source and the Python community.

— Betsy Waliszewski, Python Software Foundation


We’re committed

Our open source initiatives involve partnerships, sponsorships and memberships that support open source projects we rely on. We work to ensure that Indeed’s own open source projects thrive. And we involve all Indeedians. This year we began a FOSS Contributor Fund to support the open source community. Anyone in the company can nominate an open source project to receive funds that we award each month.

We’re committed to open source. Learn more about how we do it.
