Product Marketing Engineers (PME) at Elastic build demos that Elasticians around the world use to showcase the art of the possible with our products. Our work ranges from stuff you see on the public demo gallery to ElasticON demos to everyday demos that get used in customer meetings, webinars, and such. With such a broad internal and external audience, we treat our demos like products - they need infrastructure and process to ensure they are highly available and consistent. This is where you come in.

As a PME at Elastic, you will build demos to showcase Elastic’s capabilities. You will build and publish examples to help customers learn how to easily get started on Elastic from within AWS, Azure or Google Cloud. You will work with other teams at Elastic to collaboratively build and deliver technical workshops, webinars, and other educational content, all designed to simplify product adoption experience. Additionally, there will be opportunities to create new content using Elastic Cloud - whether it be a demo or something entirely new based on your original idea!

What You Will Be Doing:

  • Maintaining current demos - upgrading them to the latest version of the Elastic Stack
  • Supporting the existing Infrastructure and demo environment that provides content for our field
  • Improving our automation, build and processes to make demo maintenance easier, more reliable and faster
  • Creating new demo content, based on our solution, Elastic Security, and security use cases. Building apps, UIs, and thinking of creative ways to exploit and market our technology
  • Writing technical blog posts on how to use our technology
  • Record technical enablement and demo recordings or webinars

What You Will Bring:

  • Extensive security operations or engineering experience, with particular focus on data collection across operating systems, cloud providers, web server technologies and network devices.
  • Deep understanding of adversary emulation techniques and technologies (Caldera, Infection Monkey, Atomic Red etc).
  • You enjoy defending as much as you enjoy attacking - knowledge of security detection methodologies and strategies is key to this role, as well as familiarity with taxonomy such as the MITRE ATT&CK and D3FEND frameworks.
  • You don’t shy away from learning about recently discovered threat actors or new malware and ransomware variants seen in the wild.
  • Experience with using Elasticsearch in cloud environments;
  • Broad software development background (we use Python, Go and shell scripting) - you will need this to automate some of the demo setups
  • Experience with some or all of the following
    • Kubernetes
    • Docker
    • Terraform
  • Familiar with deployment and operation of workloads within either AWS, Google Cloud and Azure cloud environments;
  • Comfortable with communicating to non-experts, must be able to explain and educate audiences, through blogs, videos, in person customer discussions and webinars;

Bonus Points:

  • Site-Reliability Engineering -  We are an operations team. The environments are used by hundreds of people across the company and outside of it. We solve problems with code, but fundamentally we keep things working. You may have worked as an SRE.
  • Prior experience as a technical marketing engineer, or as a pre-sales engineer, with cloud technologies;
  • Experience implementing one or more of Elastic’s solutions in customer environments;
