One of Asia's biggest technology companies, they rank amongst the top online advertisers in the world.

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.

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