Providing the right piece of content or the perfect product to a potential customer requires insight and effort. Elastic Site Search harnesses the power of Elasticsearch for best-in-class relevance right out-of-the-gate. Not only does Site Search include typo-tolerance, stemming, bigram and phrase matching, but it also offers search customization features such as Curations, Weights, and Boosts for you to fine-tune relevance based on your business objectives in conjunction with data available via Analytics.

What You Will Bring: Previous experience in a technical role wherein you helped define product goals and iterated them into scaled software. You understand that what you build needs to empower and engage the customer, the person. Excellent practical judgement. You know how to prioritize, when to collaborate and ask for help, and when to be independent. Measured and articulate written and spoken communication skills. You work well with others and can craft concise and expressive thoughts into correspondence: issues, investigations, documentation and onboarding material.
