At Algolia, we are passionate about helping developers & product teams connect their users with what matters most in milliseconds!
 
Providing a first-class search experience at scale is a challenging endeavor: users expect finding, in the blink of an eye, highly relevant items with little to no effort. And this becomes even more complex when users use natural language instead of a series of keywords to express their intent. Think about your home assistant, chatbots, Google’s featured snippet, etc.
 
The ideal candidate for this position is a critical thinker who has past experiences in creating end-to-end natural language-based machine learning solutions. If BERT, GPT or language models in general are part of your day-to-day, we should talk!

REMOTE STRATEGY:

Algolia’s workplace strategy, Hybrid Remote, is designed to harness the power of the opportunities that remote work offers both employees and the company, while also providing an engaging in-office experience for the times when an employee is in an office. Our workplace approach reflects the belief that an employee’s impact, contribution, and output are more important than their physical location.

The majority of employees will be able to choose if, and when, they come into an office on a regular basis. There will be times when our people are asked to come into an office for “moments that matter:” activities like critical planning meetings and team social gatherings.  Beyond those events, 80% of our workforce may choose the location from where they work in the country in which they were hired.

We have physical offices in San Francisco, NYC, Atlanta, Paris, London, Bucharest, and we will be opening a small office in Austin soon. https://www.algolia.com/about/
