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.
The Enterprise Search team focuses on a variety of use cases across the broad search market application search, website search, workplace/organizational search, ecommerce search, knowledge base search, and more. Broadly recognized as a Leader in the search space, Elastic is uniquely positioned to drive the next generation of technologies using a singular Stack, powered by Elasticsearch. That said, opportunities exist far beyond information retrieval: machine learning-powered relevance, simple and intuitive data ingestion with out-of-the-box data integrations with the world’s most widely adopted platforms, operational tooling for deploying search at scale and search experience delivery through modern frameworks and clients are an integral part of Elastic’s success. As the Enterprise Search Tech Lead, your day-to-day is invested in making all these pieces fit together in a coherent, intuitive and scalable engineering framework - quite an exciting journey!
The team is diverse and distributed across the world, and collaborates on a daily basis over GitHub, Zoom, and Slack. Thus, the ability to work within a distributed team is critical. You don’t always need to be the person with the answer or the person making the decisions, but instead should be able to guide discussions to help the team make decisions together.
We are looking for a technology and engineering leader (Chief Architect) to help us realize our goals in the Enterprise Search team. The team is looking for someone with success building search experiences, search-oriented management tooling, and search technology that can help us evolve our Enterprise Search offering from a tech lead position. We seek a person who has made critical decisions in the evolution of a big product and platform over multiple years and releases and who can lead a large team with a coherent vision while making appropriate compromises along the way.
As a distributed company, diversity drives our identity. Whether you’re looking to launch a new career or grow an existing one, Elastic is the type of company where you can balance great work with great life. Your age is only a number. It doesn’t matter if you’re just out of college or your children are; we need you for what you can do.
We strive to have parity of benefits across regions and while regulations differ from place to place, we believe taking care of our people is the right thing to do.
Different people approach problems differently. We need that. Elastic is committed to diversity as well as inclusion.
