The Infrastructure team in Elastic Engineering sits underneath the Elastic product stack and supports many efforts in the company at large. Primarily we’re software developers that handle state — CI specifications, cloud resources, integrations between teams. The Elastic Stack is built on our infrastructure and we touch everything needed to get it there. We also do software consulting around the organization to put our products to use for our own business.

What you will be doing

  • Develop tooling to facilitate the building and shipping of the Elastic Stack, primarily in the area of licensing and business systems
  • Support internal customers of our product licensing efforts
  • Develop and support production services related to all aspects of the Elastic business, including our downloads, Docker registry, maps service, and much more.

Experience in the following areas

  • Web Developer: You probably have a broad software development background (we use Python, JavaScript, Clojure, Go, Haskell, Rust, and more!) but you’re skilled in at least one web ecosystem.
  • Site-Reliability Engineering: We are an operations team. We solve problems with code, but fundamentally we keep things working. You may have worked as an SRE.
  • Service-Oriented: Multiple years of hands-on experience administering Linux, preferably with distributed systems with some scale. You’ve probably helped run a SaaS platform.
  • Infrastructure-as-code: You may have experience automating production Linux systems collaboratively, deriving configuration through version control, and are proficient in some of Docker, Puppet, Chef, Ansible, Salt, Habitat, Dhall, Terraform, Packer, your own shell scripts. Maybe you’ve thrown half of that away and use Kubernetes. We do that too.

What you will bring along

  • Rails experience, or at least a strong desire to work in Rails, required.
  • You have a strong desire to automate and monitor.
  • You have a desire to build reusable software components. You’ve likely created an open source library for your favorite language, or at least made a meaningful contribution to one.
  • You enjoy a versioned workflow, representing your work in git, motivated by a GitHub workflow through issues and pull requests.
  • You have a healthy knowledge of Linux (have compiled your own kernel at some point, know how to trace syscalls, understand TCP, care about the difference between sysvinit/runit/systemd, etc.) You don’t have to know everything, but be motivated to solve problems like these.
  • You love open source development, and have committed to some project somewhere (doesn’t have to be ours), whether mailing lists, patches, documentation, etc.
  • You enjoy working with a distributed company and the active, asynchronous communication it requires.
  • You believe that a diverse company is a better company, and want to work with men and women all over the world.
  • You are willing to listen and give everyone at the table a voice.
