We're looking for a Software Engineer to help us fundamentally change the way developers are implementing search. Your goal is to design, architecture & implement integrations of Algolia into various frameworks & platforms. We want you to build state of the art libraries used by millions of users using our search engine. You should be comfortable with autonomy and ownership of large areas of the product.
Are you a resilient problem solver who isn't afraid to think outside the box and get their hands dirty? We expect you to take ownership of your projects, and be able to execute without defined processes nor explicit direction. We're looking for candidates who raise the level of our teams.
