The Tel Aviv office will serve as a R&D center to improve the company's status as the market leader in app search.
"Israel is home to some of the most dedicated, hard-working engineers in the world," said Kagan.

We're excited to build a new team in Israel that will support and improve our core focus on search, bringing users the functionality they need from their devices."
