Algolia’s mission is to make every search interaction meaningful and rewarding through developer-friendly and enterprise-grade APIs. They build the leading Search & Discovery API for websites and mobile apps.
Their goal is to help the most innovative companies across most industries to create powerful, relevant and scalable discovery experiences for their users. Their hosted platform reduces the complexity of building and scaling a fast, relevant digital experience and helps teams accelerate development time.
Today, more than 7,500 companies such as, Twitch, Lacoste, Ouest-France, Medium, and Stripe rely on Algolia to manage 65 billion search queries a month.
At Algolia, milliseconds matter !
Being a company that prides itself on having over 28 different nationalities represented in it’s offices, Algolia is looking for people who thrive in international contexts, collaborating with not only different teams but people coming from all over the world! With that in mind, they want people who can live their core values, whether that be through getting out of their comfort zone while working on a project or showing care by empowering a fellow colleague to do the same.
They want Algolians to feel that they can take ownership in their work while not being afraid to ask for and receive feedback when needed.
Being a values first company means they want Algolians to have the support and tools they need to create the best search possible for their customers.
Algolia understands that to keep employees happy, the work environment is extremely important. In order to create a happy environment, they offer a number of things such as:
Teams are distributed across six offices in locations such as Paris, San Francisco, and New York City to name a few. In order for employees at all of our locations to get to know one another in person, an offsite has been held the past two years in Los Angeles and in Marrakech.
Workshops and classes are offered in order to foster both the personal and professional growth of their employees. One can take classes to improve their language abilities in French, English, or German, though English is the official working language at the office. One also has the chance to attend workshops in public speaking to help them shine at the next Show & Tell!
A few actions which embody their values: if you donate to a charity, Algolia will match it; they are planting trees to balance their carbon print impact and during events, they give money according to the number of the people who are registered to their stand when participating to an event.
