The Team

The Digital Merchandising Product team is enabling companies to optimize their business metrics by personalizing and curating search and discovery experiences mapped to the shopper journey. This new team will develop a solution dedicated to Algolia’s main vertical: Digital Commerce.

We have ambitious goals ahead of us, including building several new products on top of Algolia existing APIs and capabilities.

  • You will play a pivotal role in architecting and implementing new products, that will play a central role for the future of Algolia

  • You will be in the driver seat to innovate in the multi-billion dollar market eCommerce industry


Your role will consist of:



  • Be a key contributor to the design, development, and operation of the Merchandising API at scale

  • Be responsible for the quality, reliability and availability of the system

  • Work with other teams to build features and resolve high impact issues


You might be a fit if you have:



  • Experience building and working with APIs at scale preferably in Golang

  • Rigor in high code quality, automated testing, and other engineering best practices

  • Good spoken and written English skills

  • Preference for candidates with experience at our current stage and beyond (over 10,000 customers, $200-500M ARR range, high growth, lots of change and building internal infrastructure).


Nice to have:



  • Experience in Rails, C++

  • Fullstack experience

  • Experience working with large datasets and high traffic

  • Experience in Site Reliability Engineering

  • Experience in Kubernetes based deployments


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

  • CARE - Genuine care about other team members, our clients and the decisions we make in the company.

  • CANDOR - Ability to receive and give constructive feedback.

  • HUMILITY- Aptitude for learning from others, putting ego aside.






Remote Strategy

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 candidate 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, Bucharest, and we will be opening a small office in Austin soon.
