Algolia is looking for a software engineer to join the Analytics squad.
In addition to being on the cutting edge of a product and industry that is growing at a rapid rate, you’ll be responsible for operating the log processing and analytics toolchain and the related APIs. Today this platform handles billions of events or more than 2 TB of data per day, a number that is rapidly growing.
No two problems are the same because all the systems evolve all the time. We expect you to be a resilient problem solver who isn’t afraid to think outside of the box and use the knowledge of system interactions in your favor. You’ll also take ownership of complete projects and execute them.
The team is composed of engineers with different backgrounds and experience both in the industry and academia. The diversity works in our favor and you should increase it by bringing your experience, your knowledge and your point of view. Thinking differently is a plus, not a minus. We’re transparent with each other and to other teams both about our success and our failures. This way we learn, we accept our weaknesses and continuously strive to improve both personally and professionally.
