Algolia is a fast growing company that helps users deliver intuitive search and discovery experiences on their websites and mobile apps. We provide APIs used by thousands of customers in more than 100 countries. Today, Algolia powers 1.5 Trillion searches a year – that’s 4 times more than Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, Baidu and Yandex combined!
Algolia is looking for a software engineer to join the Visibility Squad and contribute to the front-end development and integrations of the Algolia website and other projects, such as our blog or our Search Grader. This is a unique opportunity for someone who wants to help us become more visible, develop its identity and go the extra mile when it comes to design. In addition to being on the cutting edge of a product and industry that is growing at a rapid rate, you’ll be working closely with Lucas, Lorris, Sven and Ronan and our brand design team to elevate the look and feel of Algolia’s websites — creating a mobile & web experience that people love.
We’re looking for someone who doesn’t just maintain, but raises the bar for how we think about design and front-end technologies. That’s why as a candidate you should value & practice transparency, take ownership, have the humility to acknowledge your weaknesses and continuously strive to grow both professionally and personally.
The team is composed of engineers with different backgrounds and experience both in the industry and academia. The diversity works in our favor and you should increase it by bringing your experience, your knowledge and your point of view. Thinking differently is a plus, not a minus! We’re transparent with each other and to other teams both about our success and our failures. Our technical stack is mainly composed of the following tools: React, TypeScript, Next.js, Utility-first CSS, Netlify/Vercel.
- Work closely with the design team to create beautiful and relatable web experiences
- Integrate responsive, performant and maintainable designs across all Algolia websites with accessibility in mind (design system, etc)
- Own the full design of upcoming websites and projects
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.
Algolia’s workplace strategy, Hybrid Remote, is designed to harness the power of the opportunities that remote work offers both employees and the company, while also providing an engaging in-office experience for the times when an employee is in an office. Our workplace approach reflects the belief that an employee’s impact, contribution, and output are more important than their physical location.
The majority of employees will be able to choose if, and when, they come into an office on a regular basis. There will be times when our people are asked to come into an office for “moments that matter:” activities like critical planning meetings and team social gatherings. Beyond those events, 80% of our workforce may choose the location from where they work in the country in which they were hired.
We have physical offices in San Francisco, NYC, Atlanta, Paris, London, Austin, and Bucharest. https://www.algolia.com/about/

Algolia is part of a cadre of innovative new companies that are driving the next generation of software development, creating APIs that make developers’ lives easier; solutions that are better than building from scratch and better than having to tweak monolithic SaaS solutions.
In 2021, the company closed $150 million in series D funding and quadrupled its post-money valuation of $2.25 billion. Being well capitalized 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.
