Search Engineers are an integral part of a company’s tech team, helping to ensure that the architecture is in place to support relevant search results when users engage on its website. These engineers collaborate with both front and backend developers, as well as design, production and engineering teams to make sure the user finds what they are searching for and that their overall experience is pleasant. Search Engineers use a variety of programs and software, including Elasticsearch, AWS, React, Docker, REST and SQS/Kafka to troubleshoot search issues and correct them as needed. They can improve their company’s popularity with users by increasing the likelihood that their searches yield the expected results, meeting the customers’ needs without glitches and other impediments. Additionally, Search Engineers may be responsible for mining data, facilitating recommendations and indexing, as well as developing algorithms to enhance search engine functionality and predictability. A background in computer science with an engineering discipline is common with Search Engineers and soft skills like good communication, customer focus and being results driven are key.
