For CareerBuilder, a 1% deviance in search relevancy can mean millions of missed job opportunities
for our users. When CareerBuilder moved to Solr from an expensive, proprietary search vendor, our
top priorities were maintaining the quality of our search results and drastically improving our agility.
This talk will describe how we addressed both needs. For search quality, we’ll cover some of our
internal studies and resulting methods for dealing with multi-lingual content across dozens of
languages, as well as customizing and experimenting with relevancy calculations. For platform agility,
we’ll discuss CareerBuilder’s cloud-like search API framework which seamlessly handles millions of
searches an hour, processes hundreds of millions of documents, and is powered by hundreds of
globally-distributed servers. Come hear the results of our studies and some best practices for quality
and performance. Learn how our framework has lead to staggering improvements in both
maintainability and technology innovation, allowing us to learn from our content, not just find it.
