At Algolia, we are passionate about helping developers & product teams connect their users with what matters most in milliseconds!

Solutions Engineers are a particular squad within the Field Engineering Organization with a particular purpose.

As part of the overall org, your background ideally includes an engineering background. Moreover, you possess a desire to become an expert in Algolia and a proclivity to help customers externally and colleagues internally.

For the Solutions Enginering role in particular, it's instructive to think broadly of Algolia as a powerful toolkit which empowers developers to rapidly connect users with content. But as powerful as Algolia's toolkit is, implements are only as good as their proper use. Solutions Engineers take responsibility in owning Algolia patterns and their effective distribution to our most existing enterprise segment. Ensuring our prioritized customers leverage Algolia helps the business thrive. Moreover, developing novel, unique solutions for customers helps our product evolve.

This position is a great career move for engineers ready to make the switch to a role that allows them to leverage their existing technical skills in a role that will allow them to hone their client-facing skills, make decisions that affect the trajectory of the company, and create business connections in the community. If you’d love to use your technical skills to delight customers by crafting the right solution, we want to hear from you.

Your role will consist of:

  • Providing high-quality technical solutions to the enterprise segment
  • Expanding relationship and usage with the enterprise segment
  • Increasing reusability of solutions content (blog posts, tutorials, etc), tooling, and internal projects
  • Informing product by listening and advocating for our most treasured customers

You might be a fit if you have:

  • Strong desire to help people problem-solving skills, and attention to detail
  • 2+ years professional experience as a full-stack developer
  • Great oral and written communication in English
  • Don’t think you fit 100% of the requirements? We’d still love to hear from you.
