Software Engineering
London, UK
Posted on Friday, June 7, 2024

Algolia was built to help users deliver an intuitive search-as-you-type experience on their websites and mobile apps. We provide an API-first platform used by thousands of customers in more than 100 countries to power state-of-the-art Search and Discovery experiences on their website, mobile apps, no matter what tech stack they’re using.

The Team

The Frontend Experiences (FX) team is responsible for inspiring and empowering Algolia users to build the best Algolia powered UI experiences for their needs. We imagine, create and decompose elaborated UI experiences into small blocks ready to be mixed and matched in our users’ apps. We maintain a set of UI libraries such as Autocomplete, which you may have come across while searching the Tailwind or React docs. We also maintain the InstantSearch library platform which unlock complex Search & Discovery use cases.

We don’t use a single framework, we use them all. Our libraries work on top of Angular, Vue.js, React but also plain JavaScript (“Vanilla JS”). We write specs for every feature we release. Our code is in TypeScript, fully open source and tested.

We don’t do only frontend, we do it all. Our platform API run on Go, on top of a K8s cluster managed by the team.

The Opportunity

We're looking for a Fullstack Engineer to join the Frontend Experiences (FX) team at Algolia. As a member, you will have a direct impact on the look and feel of Algolia powered UIs. You’ll help customers re-imagine the future of how people search and discover information. You will play a pivotal role in architecting our platform, which are the face of Algolia’s Developer Experience.

Your role will consist of:

  • Architect, design and develop new versions of InstantSearch platform, including our open source libraries and our backend APIs.
  • Implement new features, solve issues and analyse user's feedback on our popular open-source projects
  • Coordinate with our product, design and marketing teams on the release of new projects and websites
  • Take ownership, research, explore and deliver novel experiences
  • Teach us what we don't know and how you want to improve the search and discovery experiences
  • Participate (new features, bug fixes) to other popular open-source projects related to our project needs
  • Be a technical mentor and help the team grow
  • Help define engineering best practices and processes

You might be a fit if you have :

  • Good knowledge of JavaScript, TypeScript, the Frontend web ecosystem: DOM, frameworks, library crafting, bundlers
  • You have created at least one reusable module (private or public)
  • You have an eye for great user experiences (UX)
  • You like to help, teach and mentor your colleagues, in and outside the team.
  • Experience at our current stage and beyond ($50-300M ARR range, high growth, lots of change and building internal infrastructure).

Overall, we care about your current and future skill set. Not where you studied or who do you know. We care about what you like to do and about what you'd like to do in the future, at Algolia.

We’re looking for someone who can live our values:

  • GRIT - Problem-solving and perseverance capability in an ever-changing and growing environment
  • TRUST - Willingness to trust our co-workers and to take ownership
  • CANDOR - Ability to receive and give constructive feedback.
  • CARE - Genuine care about other team members, our clients and the decisions we make in the company.
  • HUMILITY- Aptitude for learning from others, putting ego aside.

REMOTE STRATEGY:

Algolia’s flexible workplace model is designed to empower all Algolians to fulfill our mission to power search and discovery with ease. We place an emphasis on an individual’s impact, contribution, and output, over their physical location. Algolia is a high-trust environment and our team members have the autonomy to choose where they want to work and when. We know community comes in many forms and strive to create opportunities for intentional in-person connection in our offices and virtually for our remote colleagues around the world.
