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. We see Developer Experience as a key element of our offering: we maintain high-quality SDKs for dozens of languages and platforms. We value Grit, Trust, Candor, Care and Humility. 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

Our mission is to empower companies to push the right content to increase their users’ chances to stumble upon what they’d be interested in and increase the discoverability of their inventory. To this end, our objectives are to:

  • Build a fast and robust recommendation API
  • Rely on the best AI technology to deliver relevant recommendations
  • Provide a seamless experience for customers to setup their recommender engine

Team members have different skill sets, covering the full stack of our recommendation offering, from the machine learning models to the Recommend API to the front-end Dashboard of our customers. Your experience, your knowledge and your perspective will add value to this diversity, and help the team deliver products that make a difference.

The opportunity

We are looking for a Javascript Software Engineer to grow our Recommend Platform team. As a Software Engineer, we expect you to deliver robust and maintainable code. You should be able to work autonomously on small to medium sized projects, be involved in scoping the features, writing the necessary code, pushing the deliverables to production and maintaining the services. You are expected to be a team player and work with your peers to deliver quality services, and you’ll receive continuous support from senior engineers and the tech lead to help you grow.

YOUR ROLE WILL CONSIST OF:

  • Develop UI components (currently in vanilla JS and React) for Algolia Recommend
  • Implement new features, solve issues and analyse user's feedback on this open-source project
  • Take ownership, research, explore and deliver novel experiences

YOU MIGHT BE A FIT IF YOU HAVE:

  • Good knowledge of JavaScript (ES5, ES6), TypeScript, the DOM, HTML, CSS
  • Experience with at least one of the following frameworks: React, Angular, Vue.js or Ember.js. We've invested heavily in React so it would be a plus
  • An eye for great user experiences (UX)
  • Good spoken and written English skills
  • Preference for candidates with experience at our current stage and beyond (over 10,000 customers, $50-200M ARR range, high growth, lots of change and building internal infrastructure).

WE’RE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO CAN LIVE OUR VALUES:

  • GRIT - Problem-solving and perseverance capability in an ever-changing and growing environment.
  • TRUST - Willingness to trust our co-workers and to take ownership.
  • CANDOR - Ability to receive and give constructive feedback.
  • CARE - Genuine care about other team members, our clients and the decisions we make in the company.
  • HUMILITY - Aptitude for learning from others, putting ego aside.

 

 

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/
