Software Development Engineer
You will work daily to create powerful, customer-focused search solutions, helping people find the things they want. You will be responsible for designs, developing, and deploying high performance, fault-tolerant distributed search systems used by millions of AbeBooks customers every day. Since traffic queries and the size of our listings are always growing, the need to continually innovate is essential. Our mission is to provide a high-availability, low-latency search service that makes it easy for customers to find the products they love. We are looking for engineers passionate about the full development cycle to join our Software Development team focused on distributed systems. The solutions you build have the potential to be used by millions of AbeBooks customers from over 200 countries.
As a engineer you will have an incredible opportunity to manage and simplify the search technologies that power AbeBooks’ product search. We start the search experience by giving customers suggestions on how to formulate their queries as soon as they start typing because a great search engine should have customers feeling like the website knows exactly what they are looking for. The better we understand the meaning of a query, the better we can help customers find the products they want, so we focus on the words and the intent behind those words.
