Autocomplete API

API access to our canonicalized datasets


The Autocomplete API allows you to get suggestions for Search API query values along with the number of available records for each suggestion. For example, schools starting with "stanf".


This API provides access to our canonicalized datasets and is meant for use in conjunction with the Person and Company Search APIs as a way of previewing what records are available before retrieving them. The Autocomplete API currently supports completion for the following field values:

  • company: Company Names
  • country: Country Names
  • industry: Industries
  • location: Location Names
  • major: Educational Majors (Field of Study)
  • region: Region Name (for example, states for the US)
  • role: Job Roles
  • sub_role: Job Sub Roles
  • school: School Names
  • skill: Skills
  • title: Job Titles

The Autocomplete API powers the above dropdown list on the backend.
