Apply     

At Elastic, we see endless possibility in a world of endless data. And we use the power of search to help people and organizations turn that possibility into results. Elastic is the leading platform for search-powered solutions. With solutions in Enterprise Search, Observability, and Security, we help improve customer and employee search experiences, keep critical applications running smoothly, and protect against cyber threats. Elastic enables organizations worldwide to use the power of Elastic, including Netflix, Uber, BBC, Microsoft, and thousands of others.

Elastic was built on a foundation of being free and open, which trickles down to how we work. We’re a distributed organization and have been from the beginning. Being distributed isn’t just a way of doing business—it’s a mentality that is at the core of our culture.

Do you want to work on distributed search and analytics software which impacts the lives of millions of people? We’re not interested in your previous job title. Instead, we are looking for bright people with a deep knowledge of Java, algorithms, and concurrency and who love to take on new challenges.

Right now, we are on the lookout for a talented Java Engineer to join our Elasticsearch team. You will be working on areas of Elasticsearch that primarily deal with ingesting large volumes of data and the management of that data once indexed. For example,  Index Lifecycle Management, Data Streams, and the Ingest Pipelines are all part of data management.  You can work fully remote from your home or (almost) anywhere in the world.

What you will be doing: 

  • Evolving and creating new features in Elasticsearch
  • Designing and implementing new horizontally-scalable features and APIs in Elasticsearch
  • Understanding and contributing to surrounding layers such as replication and search
  • Optimizing internal data structures used within Elasticsearch 
  • Tackling difficult issues, including performance or concurrency issues, and proposing solutions
  • Collaborating in the open with the Elasticsearch team, Elastic Stack users, and other supporting open source projects
  • Partnering with our support engineers on the harder problems

What you bring along:

  • You are highly proficient in Java, conversant in the standard library of data structures and concurrency constructs, as well as newer features like lambdas.
  • Experience troubleshooting complex issues. 
  • A high level of autonomy. The distributed nature of the company offers freedom to work when and how you see fit, but also requires team members to work independently, and reach out for help when stuck.
  • Experience working with large volumes of data in noSQL datastore(s). 

Bonus points: 

  • Experience running Elasticsearch at scale
  • Experience with system’s administration or DevOps
  • Experience with complex Gradle builds
  • Maintaining open source libraries
