About Sajari

Launched in 2017, we spent the first couple of years building an entirely new search engine from the ground up while growing a profitable business. While the first few years were focused on enabling companies to create smart search experiences for their websites, our next horizon is to do the same in the ecommerce space and beyond.

We’ve got an amazing foundation, grand plans and we hope you’ll join us on this exciting journey.
