About Algolia

Algolia is set to enable every company to create world-class Search and Discovery experiences with an API-first approach. Performance and Scalability is at the heart of our mission: we power 1.5 trillion searches a year, for 10K+ customers all over the world. 

If you're a problem solver, able to think outside the box and eager to nurture others and learn from them, then this is your challenge!

The Team

The Events and Data Ingestion teams ensure a frictionless flow of data between customers and Algolia’s platform. This new group will provide a platform for Algolia products to collect, compose, and consume data.

Data ingestion is a mission-critical capability for the Algolia product platform. At its core, Algolia is a data company. The products and services that drive the most value for Algolia depend on access to customer data. That means the speed and ease at which customers can send their data to Algolia can heavily influence the success of onboarding a new customer, expanding to a new use case, or adopting new features.

As a member of the Data & Events ingestion team, you will have a direct impact on Algolia’s revenue stream. You will play a pivotal role in architecting and implementing systems that play a central role across all of Algolia’s products.

  • Lead by example, going hands-on when necessary
  • Be a culture advocate within the company living by our core values
  • Make sure the team is as productive as possible, removing roadblocks or processes along the way

You might be a fit if you have:

  • Deep interest in people and mentoring
  • 3+ years in a managing/leading role
  • A passion for shipping quality products
  • Experience building and operating distributed systems at scale

  • Experience designing and building data pipelines

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/
