Job Description

At Algolia, we are passionate about helping developers & product teams connect their users with what matters most in milliseconds!
Algolia is looking for DevOps/MLOps engineers to join the AI team. You will be responsible for architecting, maintaining & monitoring the infrastructure supporting our AI services. You’ll be auditing the existing tooling and Google Cloud projects but also recommend strategies to scale our permissions management and overall tooling hosted in our mono-repository.
No two problems are the same because our systems keep evolving and scaling. We expect you to be a resilient problem solver who isn’t afraid to think outside of the box. You will take ownership of complete projects and execute them.
The team is composed of engineers with different backgrounds and experience both in the industry and academia. The diversity works in our favor and you should increase it by bringing your experience, your knowledge and your point of view. Thinking differently is a plus, not a minus. We’re transparent with each other and to other teams both about our success and our failures. This way we learn, we accept our weaknesses and continuously strive to improve both personally and professionally.


      • Design, prototype, and refine scalable infrastructure for operating Algolia's machine learning pipelines at scale
      • Evaluate performance of current and future systems, both software and hardware.
      • Automate, secure and scale our infrastructure with industry standards tooling.

      • Work directly with ML engineers to troubleshoot, and resolve high impact issues.
      • Team up with the SRE team in charge of the global infrastructure of Algolia
      • Audit and improve our access control policy.


      • Minimum of 3 years of experience in a similar role.
      • Experience in operationalization of Data Science projects (MLOps) using at least one of the popular frameworks or platforms (e.g. Kubeflow, AWS Sagemaker, Google AI Platform, Azure Machine Learning, DataRobot, DKube)
      • Experience working on pipelines & APIs dealing with large volumes of data.
      • Experience in automating infrastructure deployment.
      • Experience with deploying access control strategies.
      • Design and operation of robust distributed systems.
      • Rigour in high code quality, automated testing, and other engineering best practices.
      • Proven experience in a very fast-paced and continuously changing environment.
      • Ability to make autonomous decisions and take ownership for them.
      • Excellent spoken and written English skills required.
      • Experience at our current stage and beyond ($50-200M ARR range, high growth, lots of change and building internal infrastructure).


      • Experience in Go and/or Python
      • Experience with Bigtable & BigQuery
      • Working knowledge of relational databases and query authoring (SQL)
      • Experience with PostgreSQL


      • Competitive pay and equity.
      • Coaching and sponsorship to participate and speak at leading industry conferences.
      • Ongoing professional education opportunities through internal & external workshops, including public speaking, language learning (English/French).
      • Fun: we spend time together — team building, socialising and making tools that encourage getting to know teammates across offices and continents.
      • Charitable contribution matching.
      • Unique referral rewards program: refer a candidate, and we’ll donate to your charity of choice.
      • Team workouts.
      • Meals & happy hours.
