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

Algolia is looking for a passionate and empathetic Product Designer, who is eager to be involved in the entire product development process, from early research and ideation to tweaking pixels up to shipping and post-launch. You can identify problems and opportunities, and frame them in a way that guides your squad to delivering impactful work. You effectively collaborate cross-functionally to develop a vision and drive projects to completion. You’re motivated by goals and outcomes, staying focused on the big picture while giving care to the details when necessary. You iterate quickly, utilize data and user research to ensure you’re on the right path to your goal. You help champion design thinking within your squad, the design team and within the broader organization. You work humbly and kindly, aren’t afraid to make mistakes, to admit failure, and to learn from it. You’re always looking to improve yourself and to lift up others around you.

The work here is interesting, challenging and fun. Here are a few examples of what we work on: designing search analytics and other business tools for our customers, improving our customer Dashboard, building an amazing developer experience through documentation and tutorials, developing and testing search patterns (used by millions of people), building search design tools for developers, voice search, growth projects and much more.

YOUR ROLE WILL CONSIST OF:

  • Design simple, data and research-based flows and experiences that delight our users
  • Partner with PMs, engineers, other designers and stakeholders across the company to deliver products and features from conception to launch
  • Effectively communicate conceptual ideas, detailed design, and design rationale verbally and visually to a variety of audiences (team members, your squad, company-wide, execs)
  • Own the success or failure of your design work: validate your designs and initiate improvements
  • Constantly seek and respectfully provide design feedback
  • Help refine our processes and define best practices for design at Algolia

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR FROM YOU:

  • Experience designing and shipping digital products (not just websites)
  • A well-rounded design skills set (including product thinking, UX, UI)
  • Self-awareness and ability to collaborate cross-functionally
  • An appreciation for the entire product development cycle: research, problem definition, ideation, solution design, validation and iteration
  • Strong communicator of design work and your rationale behind proposals
  • Excellent spoken and written English skills required
  • Mindset focused on learning and professional growth

NICE TO HAVE:

  • Prior work experience on a highly technical enterprise product
  • Experience working in Figma or Sketch in a team setting
  • Passion for working collaboratively in a dynamic, international context

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.

REMOTE STRATEGY:

Algolia’s flexible workplace model is designed to empower all Algolians to fulfill our mission to power search and discovery with ease. We place an emphasis on an individual’s impact, contribution, and output, over their physical location. Algolia is a high-trust environment and our team members have the autonomy to choose where they want to work and when. We know community comes in many forms and strive to create opportunities for intentional in-person connection in our offices and virtually for our remote colleagues around the world.

We have a global presence with physical offices in San Francisco, NYC, Paris, London, Sydney and Bucharest.

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. Algolia powers more than 30 billion search requests a week – four times more than Microsoft Bing, Yahoo, Baidu, Yandex and DuckDuckGo combined.

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.

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.
