We’re seeking a talented software engineer and communicator to help realize this vision and push the product and team to new heights.

What You Will Be Doing:

  • You’ll contribute frontend code to Enterprise Search in Kibana, a free and open frontend application that sits on top of the Elastic Stack, providing search and data visualization capabilities for data indexed in Elasticsearch. Explore the Enterprise Search frontend code to learn more about the solution you’ll be contributing to and how we work in the open.

  • You’ll drive product focused engineering efforts to invent and ship valuable and meaningful features to an excited market.
  • You’ll engage with and lead capable engineers, designers, and many other stakeholders, as we work together to invent and build whimsical and valuable interfaces. We practice teamwork!

  • We appreciate articulate and “low ego” people who want to grow as part of a team.
  • We welcome diversity in all forms. 
  • We hold each other accountable and work to a high standard. We take pride in the frequent, safe and graceful delivery of innovative and valuable features.
  • We appreciate positivity and vigilance and strive for autonomy, trust and personal and professional growth.

What You Will Bring:

  • Experience leading valuable features into an at-scale web application and your expertise with modern JavaScript tooling like React, Kea, and TypeScript.
  • Experience as a technical leader. You are a warm and inspiring figure who can help develop engineers and rally people around meaningful projects.
  • Excellent practical judgement. You know how to prioritize, when to collaborate and ask for help, and when to be independent.
  • Measured and articulate written and spoken communication skills. You work well with others and can craft concise and expressive thoughts into correspondence: issues, investigations, documentation and onboarding material.
  • An interest in learning new tools, languages, workflows and philosophies that can help you grow. You can function well in an environment that drives towards change. This role has tremendous opportunity for growth!
