Bernadette Nixon is CEO of Algolia, a company that processes more than 1.5 trillion searches per year for over 10,000 customers. She joined the company in early 2020 in the midst of the global pandemic and what turned out to be explosive growth. Prior to Algolia, Nixon was CEO of Alfresco, President of SDL, and an SVP at OpenText. She has worked across the spectrum of search from pure SaaS solutions to open source and now is steering the API-first solution approach at Algolia which includes elements of customized programmability and SaaS.

We go deep this week on search, how it is evolving, and the nuances of voice search. We also discuss Algolia's recent $150 million funding round which conferred unicorn status on the company with a valuation exceeding $2 billion.
