Lucidworks builds AI-powered search solutions for many of the world's largest brands. Fusion, Lucidworks' advanced development platform, provides the enterprise-grade capabilities needed to design, develop, and deploy intelligent search applications at any scale.
Companies across all industries, from consumer retail and healthcare to insurance and financial services, rely on Lucidworks every day to power their consumer-facing and enterprise search apps. The company also recently hit the headlines after raising $100M to expand in AI-powered search-as-a-service for organizations.
The team at Lucidworks is made up of seasoned Silicon Valley veterans and brilliant newcomers from all over the world. And they all have something in common: they know that there has to be a better way for teams to access and distribute information relevant to their organizations.
The company created a platform enabling the enterprise and digital commerce businesses to connect users with the data that they need to make decisions and move forward. I invited Lucidworks CEO, Will Hayes onto my daily tech podcast to learn more about their technology and the story behind their success.
Will joined Lucidworks in 2013 as our Chief Product Officer and was appointed CEO in 2014. He has over 15 years of product, marketing, and business development experience. Prior to Lucidworks, he was head of technical business development for Splunk, where he was responsible for defining the company's market category and key product feature sets.
He created and led the company's global partner program, building an ecosystem of consultants, developers, resellers, system integrators, service providers, and technology partners. Earlier in his career, Hayes served as a software engineer at Genentech, where he built solutions that supported the sales and drug development teams in their field activities.
