Morgane started tech recruitment as soon as she finished her studies in 2015 and found a job that suited her. Talking with developers, understanding their career paths, motivations and evolution perspectives fascinates her and has allowed her to specialise herself more and more. Today, Algolia is a highly stimulating playground where she works on all types of positions and levels of seniority, a great place where her work is valued.

Justine joined Algolia for her first Job as a Sales Development representative in September 2017. She moved to 3 different positions within the Pre-sales team, from Sales Development Representative (Inbound lead) to Business Development Representative (BDR) then took the role of Account Executive within the SMB team during two years. In 2021, she joined the Customer Success team with the aim to strengthen her technical skills in our Algolia Products and focus more on long-term and strategic relationships with our existing clients to develop expansion and feature adoption. What makes Justine see herself pursue her career at Algolia, is the constant challenging but supportive environment, where endless opportunities are offered to learn and develop skills!

Being well capitalised enables Algolia to continue to invest in its market leading platform, to better serve its thousands of customers–including Under Armor, Petsmart, Stripe, Gymshark, and Walgreens, to name just a few.

At Algolia, milliseconds matter !

What they are looking for

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 (Candor, Grit, Care, Humility and Trust), 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.

Good to know

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:

  1. Teams are distributed across six offices in locations such as Paris, San Francisco, New York City, Sydney, London and Bucharest. In addition to this, Algolia has a flexible workplace policy which allows its employees to chose if they want to be in office full time, or be 100% remote or chose a hybrid model.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.
