Algorithm and data
Alogorithm and data are both very important for a good software. More precisely, data model and algorithm should be designed/chosen together so that they fit well with each other. You cannot simply say algorithm A is always better than algorithm B - it depends on what data set you want them to operate upon.

Re: Algorithm and data
< At Airbnb, refining the algorithm means looking at search results and looking for the conditions that produced lousy results, explained Gupta.>

That's a very important step in the process. Based on what I see in searches on many sites, they don't bother with that. It can be very frustrating to put in clear, simple terms and get back irrelevant results.

Re: Algorithm and data
And let's not forget good documentation. If conditions change, especially if the original algorithm writer is gone, good documentation can make the differerence between a smooth transition or the need for starting over from scratch.
