THE COMPANY

Our client believes in delivering truly compelling customer engagement. Their focus is on blending choice, value and convenience to deliver a consistent and enjoyable user experience. One of Asia's biggest technology companies, they rank amongst the top online advertisers in the world. An incredible technical creative melting pot, technology is not just what they do - it's at the heart of who they are. With the dynamism and short chain of command of a start-up and the capital to make things happen, they love innovation and putting new technologies to work to extend their lead on the competition.

THE ROLE

My client is looking to create the best text search platform in the world, within the OTA (online travel agent) industry.

Right now they, and their competitors provide fairly basic functionality leveraging ElasticSearch for geographic lookups. They have a plan to extend this significantly and become the world's best for this kind of work.

They do have a roadmap, end goal and a very excited product manager. What they don't have is a technical lead/visionary. What they are looking for however is somebody that has the skills and passion to take it to the next level.

We are looking for someone who has the proficiency to write custom analyzers, scorers, filters etc. When sat with someone from China, Japan, can use that person's knowledge and plug it in to the engine to get the desired behavior.

Their investment in text search, accuracy and what they can do with it is not going to go away - this is something they want to invest years into.

They also see this as a real opportunity to do something nobody else is doing and will have huge conversion gains.

This would be a really significant part of their website and they need someone of your caliber to make it happen.

If this sounds like you please get in touch now!
