Search Engineer Job Description

Search engineers are responsible for building technologies that assist potential customers in the search for products. They work with both front- and back-end developers, creating technologies that bridge the two for improved performance and results. This position often requires a daily release of code that answers the demands of millions of users. Search engineers may help with building the overall architecture of the stack, and work closely with product designers and managers within the organization. These engineers are responsible for improving the functionality and relevancy of consumer-facing searches, which requires both design and implementation of scalable and high-performance search systems. Search engineers must work with design, product and engineering teams to create tools, features and functionality with a variety of stack programs.

Successful candidates can work with Elasticsearch, AWS, React, Docker, REST, SQS/Kafka and other technologies to help address issues and improve searches. These tools also help them with natural language applications, copyright and duplicate detection and providing relevant search recommendations. Nearly every company utilizes search engines that assist website users in finding products, documents, images and content. Search engineers work with and create algorithms that facilitate searches, data mining, indexing, recommendations and overall performance for end users. Online information access continues to grow, making the outlook for search engineers promising. As companies continue to create products, services and content that are accessible via searches, these engineers are in high demand to help keep up with the trends. Search engineers also play a key role in the overall user experience, which helps organizations continue to grow and meet customer needs.
