Elastic

Distributed

At Elastic, we have a simple goal: to solve the world's data problems with products that delight and inspire. As the company behind the popular open source projects — Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats — we help people around the world do great things with their data. From stock quotes to Twitter streams, Apache logs to WordPress blogs, our products are extending what's possible with data, delivering on the promise that good things come from connecting the dots. We unite Elasticians across 30+ countries (and counting!), 18 timezones and 30 different languages into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.

Engineering Philosophy

Engineering a distributed system that is easy to operate via elegantly designed APIs is a challenge. It requires software development skills and the ability to think like a user. We care deeply about giving you ownership of what you’re working on. Our company believes we achieve greatness when they are set free and are surrounded and challenged by their peers. At Elastic, we effectively don’t have a hierarchy to speak of; we feel that you should be empowered to comment on anything, regardless of your role within the company.

What You Will Be Doing

Users are increasingly finding Kibana to be a good tool for managing their Elasticsearch deployments. On the Elasticsearch UI team, we want the people who are responsible for the operation of Elasticsearch clusters to have a similarly delightful user experience. We build wizard setup applications for features like Cross Cluster Replication, simplify common index management tasks with dashboards and CRUD UIs, and continue to improve our developer console's support for developing Elasticsearch queries. As part of our team, you'll help us continue to build great user interfaces for hundreds of millions of developers around the world.
