Cloud Job Discovery Private Beta

Power your job site with machine learning

Cloud Job Discovery is part of Google for Jobs - a Google-wide commitment to help people find jobs more easily. Job Discovery provides plug and play access to Google’s search and machine learning capabilities, enabling the entire recruiting ecosystem - company career sites, job boards, applicant tracking systems, and staffing agencies to improve job site engagement and candidate conversion.


Most job sites rely on keyword search to retrieve content which often omits relevant jobs and overwhelms the job seeker with irrelevant jobs. For example, a keyword search with any spelling error returns 0 results, and a keyword search for “dental assistant” returns any "assistant" role that offers dental benefits.

Cloud Job Discovery uses machine learning to better understand both job content and the intent of job seekers, resulting in:

  • check better job site engagement
  • check higher apply rates
  • check increased candidate conversion
  • check freed up product and engineering resources


Career site providers, job boards, applicant tracking systems (ATS), and staffing agencies have directly integrated with Cloud Job Discovery.

If you are an employer looking to improve your career site experience and use the same technology that powers the Google career site (and thousands of others), consider working with a career site provider to easily access Cloud Job Discovery. We currently integrate with Jibe, Ongig, Phenom People, RolePoint, Talemetry, Talent Networks by CareerBuilder, and more.
