Extended Custom Scripting at Groupon
To use Elastic to deliver the best, most relevant deal to every customer, Groupon's team had to extend custom scripting in a new way, allowing any developer — with or without Elasticsearch know-how — to write a custom scoring function to rank deals.
Brian Humphrey is a Relevance Infrastructure Engineer at Groupon, and has been working with Elasticsearch for local search since 2011. In 2014, he was a lead in changing all of Groupon's search from Solr to Elasticsearch. He studied Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at The University of Texas at Austin. Brian is currently based in Austin, Texas.
