# Why Typesense?
Our goal with Typesense is to reduce the time-to-market for building a great instant-search experience that provides relevant results out-of-the-box.
To this end, we've designed every feature from the ground-up, with a close eye on making it intuitive and easy to use. We've also provided sane defaults for every configuration parameter, so the engine works out-of-the-box for a majority of use cases. This is what we mean by "batteries-included".
Our hope is that this increases developer productivity significantly when developing search experiences - one less thing for you to worry about.
