Create AI-powered search & discovery across websites & apps.

With our 10,000 customers and billions of personal queries over terabytes of data, Algolia is taking security very seriously. It’s one of the founding pillars of the solution we offer our users. 

Our customers' data is our #1 priority, and we have comprehensive and always evolving practices for safeguarding it without losing flexibility.

We need someone compassionate, innovative, open-minded and motivated to take on the role of maintaining and improving those processes, as Security Analyst.

As a member of the Security team, with senior engineers, you will study the working engineering processes and implement new ways of working, new tools, new controls, balancing productivity of our software engineers against the best practices of security compliance. Cooperation with all sides will be key, as a forbidding process is a bypassed process, and a bypassed process is a security incident in the making.

The Security Analyst will work on integrating these new security processes at the heart of all activities, to increase the impact of security frameworks on our products and to allow for process control automations.

#LI-Hybrid #LI-Remote



Algolia’s workplace strategy, Hybrid Remote, is designed to harness the power of the opportunities that remote work offers both employees and the company, while also providing an engaging in-office experience for the times when an employee is in an office. Our workplace approach reflects the belief that an employee’s impact, contribution, and output are more important than their physical location.

The majority of employees will be able to choose if, and when, they come into an office on a regular basis. There will be times when our people are asked to come into an office for “moments that matter:” activities like critical planning meetings and team social gatherings.  Beyond those events, 80% of our workforce may choose the location from where they work in the country in which they were hired.

We have physical offices in San Francisco, NYC, Atlanta, Paris, London, Austin, and Bucharest.
