Front-end Engineer (Industry Solutions Applications)


Job description

Algolia was built to help product teams deliver fast and relevant search in their websites and mobile apps with flexible resources & tools. We provide a hosted search API used by thousands of customers in more than 100 countries. Billions of search queries are answered every month thanks to the code we push every day into production. Our tools allow product teams to focus on building great experiences without having to worry about maintaining their infrastructure. 

We're looking for a JavaScript Software Engineer (Front end) to join the Solutions Strategy team at Algolia. We are responsible for developing industry solutions to create the best developer experience for our users through building on Algolia’s open source UI libraries such as InstantSearch.js. We are a cross functional team that works closely with the product, marketing, solutions engineering and architecture team to drive feature adoption and growth in the developer community. We're not using only one framework, but all of them (you don't need to know all of them though, we teach each others). We build open source tools, demos and boilerplates for Angular, Vue.js, React but also plain JavaScript ("Vanilla JS" 🍦). As a member of the Solutions Strategy team, you have the opportunity to build proof of concepts on our latest product releases such as voice and other smart features. Your work will be heavily used in client facing and technical marketing campaigns. You also have the opportunity to live code in many of our community events. We are at the frontline of the developer experience at Algolia, a great position to have a big impact for both developers and end-users.

This is an opportunity for someone to make an immense impact at a fast growing company. You should value and practice transparency, have the humility to accept your weaknesses and continuously strive to improve both personally and professionally.

Do you like, or would you like to, craft open source code, tools and libraries for developers? Do you love to design a clean API solving real-world use cases? Then apply and let's chat about it.

Coming right from an engineer in the team : “As a developer, I use a ton of different libraries to achieve my goals of building applications. Now I can go to the next level and learn how to build tools for developers to build their applications. It's a whole different challenge, I do it in the open source world and engage with my users.”.
