As an Android Engineer, your goal will be to design, architecture and implement libraries to ease the integration of Algolia on Android. We want you to build state of the art components ready to be used by thousands of developers, reaching millions of mobile users.
You will have a daily impact on both the User Experience and the Developer Experience provided by Algolia, and contribute to high-visibility open source projects.
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 inside the team both about our success and our failures. This way we learn, we accept our weaknesses and continuously strive to improve both personally and professionally.
Coming right from Paul-Louis who is working in the Android team: "Handling our open-source mobile libraries is a great challenge: We get to build tools that help developers make the most out of our engine. This brings a lot of interesting challenges from mobile UX to developer experience, we get to learn a lot on these topics and we are free to find the best solutions and right tools to solve them!"

Your role will consist of:

  • Develop further InstantSearch Android, Algolia’s  widget library to ease the implementation of instant search experiences on Android
  • Maintain Algolia's Android API Client
  • Hack various demos/prototypes integrating our engine (data scraping/crawling, engine configuration, UX + design) on mobile
  • Have fun helping us deliver unique search experiences everywhere!
  • For Paul-Louis : "On a typical morning, I'm either designing new features with my team, implementing something new in a library, reviewing my teammates' contributions, or replying to our libraries' users."
