Algolia’s flexible workplace model is designed to empower all Algolians to fulfill our mission to power search and discovery with ease.

ABOUT US:

Algolia prides itself on being a pioneer and market leader offering an AI Search solution that empowers 17,000+ businesses to compose customer experiences at internet scale that predict what their users want with blazing fast search and web browse experience.
