About the company
Meilisearch’s mission is to create a best-in-class search experience for every website and application. We are building a blazingly fast and ultra-relevant search engine made in Rust that allows our partners to have a powerful search engine without initial configuration. Features such as typo-tolerance, filters, and synonyms are provided out-of-the-box.
As an open source solution, we strongly believe the best way to realize our vision is to leverage the open source community's power. We already have many integrations and SDKs to allow any developer to try Meilisearch in their environment quickly. We have a vibrant connection with our community of early adopters and builders.

We are a team of passionate people and our project is growing fast (+10K GitHub stars in 12 months). For us, the next step after building the basis of a strong open source solution is to tackle monetization through a SaaS product, and more specifically a Cloud-based offer.

About the team
The Cloud team is composed today of a Team Lead (Nicolas), a Developer (Samuel), two Product Designers (Charline & Léna) and we will soon be welcoming a Technical Product Manager in the team. The team was initially created in the spring of 2021, with the objective to start building a first monetizable feature for our users, based on Cloud hosting.
After a period of beta testing, the Meilisearch Cloud offer is planned to be released soon, which will introduce a different workflow as well as new technical challenges. We are looking for a Fullstack Software Engineer to complete the current team and take part in giving this new product technical stability.

👉 Rigorous and detail-oriented: our open source product has strongly impacted our culture and values. Rigor and cleanliness of code are a must.
👉 Self-driven and pragmatic: you will be working on a new product, in a not-so-old company :) we are looking for a “builder” profile, who will look for and offer solutions, without trying to reinvent the wheel each time.
👉 Outstanding communication skills: you are attached to documenting your work and clearly communicating with your team about the choices you make. Ideally, you have experience working with remote colleagues.
👉 Experience with React,
👉 Experience with back-end languages such as Ruby on Rails and/or Python, Django,
