Search Engineer Job Description

A search engineer has the complex and vital task of developing cutting-edge search algorithms to retrieve necessary data from databases and other computer programs. This position will require a person to work with both large and small teams, and retrieve information from a variety of formats such as text, images, video and sound. Strong skills in computer programming and communications are needed, as well as a firm understanding of how users think and approach searches.

When it comes to qualifying education, a bachelor's degree is a minimum, but many companies will require a Master's or PhD in some sort of computer field. Alternatively, many will accept comparable industry experience. Those who are looking for a search engineer position should also be fast learners and be able to understand machine learning.

Living and Working in Los Angeles

Los Angeles is the financial, cultural and commercial center of Southern California. After New York City, it is the largest city in the United States in terms of population, making it a place that is rife with opportunity for those who live there. The city generally follows a grid plan, which makes navigating the town relatively easy. The majority of Los Angeles is characterized by lowrise buildings, though downtown LA has a number of skyscrapers.

There's much to do in Los Angeles. In addition to the many fine restaurants and excellent nightlife that you can partake in, there are plenty of theaters, fine arts and even observatories that you can go to. Of course, Hollywood is also part of Los Angeles, which has much to offer as well.
