Quin Hoxie experienced this pain firsthand while working on the problem at AboutUs, and then at Scribd with Swiftype cofounder Matt Riley. Their experience led them to found Swiftype, which builds customizable search engines for websites that can be created and deployed in minutes. Swiftype offers features like dead simple results customization, including drag & drop reordering and simple adding and removing of results, autocomplete, meta tag customization, filtering and sorting controls, faceted search, typo protection and bigram matching, custom synonyms, real-time analytics, thumbnails in search results, and more.

Swiftype search is used for many purposes, including powering support sites and knowledge bases, product search for ecommerce sites, search for some of the large web publishers, developer documentation search for both software companies and open source libraries, mobile search for mobile applications, and more.
