Welcome: please introduce yourself!

@Algolians

My name is Sergio and I’m a SRE in the Foundation Squad. I’m very excited to be here :slight_smile:

I’m originally from Spain but many people think I look Irish aye !! I worked in the Telco industry for some years but I decided to switch my career.

One of the things I started learning outside work was coding in Go, hopefully I can learn more here. However I also built an AWS cli in bash when AWS tools required Java, long time ago…

If you need something just ping me.

Hey guys!
I’m Tobi and I recently started at Algolia as a Solutions Engineer based in the Paris Office.
Originally from Toronto, I’ve been working as a frontend developer in Paris for the past 3 years. I love CSS and JS. Lately I’ve been playing around with React, making mini apps mostly on Codepen, while using modern CSS layouts…:hocho: to floats, :heart: to grid.

Hello Algolia Community!

My name is Bobby and this week I joined Algolia’s Customer Success team as the company’s first Customer Success Associate. As a CSA, I’ll be helping Algolia’s self-serve customers go live and achieve their business goals by proactively supporting customers through implementation and beyond, as well as responding to any questions or concerns that arise. Outside of work I love spending time with family and friends, gardening, photography and skateboarding in beautiful San Francisco :slight_smile:

Disclaimer: I already introduced myself here with my personal account, so I’m redoing this with my Algolia account now :slight_smile:

Hi! I’m Adrien, code lover since I was 6 y.o. Started to program in JavaScript back in 2002, when webviews were powered by Internet Explorer, and slow routines were coded in C++ and embedded as ActiveX DLLs. :sweat_smile:

I’ve built too many products, as a startup employee, freelance developer, and indie hacker. I mostly use node.js, express and vanilla/DOM JavaScript. I also used Meteor at some point but got tired of it. (I attended the last Meteor Paris meetup at Algolia HQ, tho!)

My first contact with Algolia was when they kindly sponsored my hackathon: fHACKtory, back in 2012! Then we used Algolia in my ex-startup (Whyd, now Openwhyd), to replace our buggy ElasticSearch configuration.

Now, I’m working at Algolia, building the Custom Website Crawler in Node.js! :nerd_face:

Cheers! :beers:

Hi there Algolia-peeps,

I am Stéphanie, founder of modaResa, a web-app backed by the Family. The journey has just started, and I am looking for some tech-savvy interns in web developpement, and a CTO (long shot, but throwing it out there). If you know someone that could fit, let me know.
It’s a supercool and automated real-time scheduling tool, based on several specific constraints. I have done usertests with major potential clients, and not one single company has said no to use and pay for it in the future.

I spoke to Olivier at Algolia, who suggested I’d post it here.
Thanks in advance!

Hello there – I’m François :wave:

I’ll be joining Algolia as a Software Engineer Intern for the next 6 months in Paris.

My main focus lately has been JavaScript (more specifically the React ecosystem). I’m open to new concepts and paradigms, that’s what keeps me intrigued.

Aside from programming, I love digital design. I’d like it if I can learn more about the design process here at Algolia at some point.

Music drives me nuts! I’ve been playing the saxophone and the guitar for a while - I’d be keen on jamming with some people.

I’m very excited to be part of Algolia’s growth :raised_hands:

Hello everyone !

I’m Marwan a new software engineer at Algolia (core API).

Before that I was a teacher and research engineer in EPITA (a french computer science school) where I met a lot of future algolians. And now I’m working with them :smiley:

I’m a little bit nerdy on the edge (been programming and playing with computer since 1984 … ) and I like to apply my computer skills to cooking … Oh, and in another life, I’ve been playing guitar in black metal band (but that’s another story … )
