About The Team:

Platform Ingest team at Elastic is responsible for building tools to collect and ingest data easily, efficiently, and quickly. Learn more about them on our website here or by testing the data ingestion user experience yourself on Elastic Cloud.

We are responsible for Elastic Agent as a unified data collector for elastic solutions, Fleet as a central management platform, Integrations platform as a marketplace experience to discover and build third party integrations to bring data into Elastic stack, and data transformation and processing tooling of Logstash, ingest pipelines and runtime fields.

Elastic’s Central Management platform called Fleet streamlines the life-cycle management of Elastic Agents at scale. Fleet provides operators with the ability to monitor their agents, manage their binaries and roll out integration configurations and other solutions at scale and across heterogeneous compute environments, all with a click of a button or an API to automate these workflows.

The Platform Ingest team is looking for a Software Engineer to continue building this central management platform, including in the context of our new stateless architecture. You will work with Product Management, Design, and other engineering teams.

  • Collaborate with teams across Elastic to build a platform that serves the needs of other solution teams such as Observability and Security.
  • Participate in the team’s on-call rotation.
  • Foster a culture of mutual respect and collaborative decision-making.

What You Bring Along:

  • 3+ years of experience with Golang at scale.
  • 2+ years of experience working with Kubernetes in a SaaS environment.
  • System-level knowledge of Linux.
  • Experience writing automated tests.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
