Our mission

For 200k years, humans have spent most of their waking lives searching. Once, we looked for food and shelter. Now, it’s information - which keeps proliferating faster and threatens to overwhelm us. Algolia’s mission is to find without foraging: to show us what we’re looking for - instantly.

Our values


We thrive outside of our comfort zone, pushing ourselves to go ever further. We think long-term and constantly strive to be better, even if things don’t always go as expected.


We trust each other just as we trust our users. We earn that trust by listening to each other, following through with our commitments and keeping our words. We exercise transparency within the company, our customers and our community.


We want the best for our customers, community & colleagues. We go above and beyond to make sure they are happy. We have each other’s backs and help one another succeed.


We are open and honest. We give each other praise and criticism because we want to challenge each other and help one another grow.


We want our teammates to succeed as much as we do ourselves. We believe each team member is as important as the other and we approach each new challenge knowing that we may not have all the answers.
