At Elastic, we have a simple goal: to solve the world’s data problems with products that delight and inspire. As the company behind the popular open source projects — Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats — we help people around the world do great things with their data. From stock quotes to Twitter streams, Apache logs to WordPress blogs, our products are extending what’s possible with data, delivering on the promise that good things come from connecting the dots. Diversity drives our vibe. We unite employees across 30+ countries into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.
About The Role
You will act as a hands-on technical lead and architect of the Kibana Platform team which is responsible for the architecture, tech stack, and plugin system in Kibana. This team lays the groundwork for other teams to build end-user applications and features. You will work on many key projects and initiatives, partnering closely across all Elastic teams. You will be driving the roadmap of platform team, reinforcing the quality of work, managing the technical debt, running the sync meeting, and tracking the project progress.
Do you love thinking about which type of sorting algorithms would be ideal for sequencing the execution order of node modules based on their dependency graphs? Do questions about which CSRF vectors exist that are not protected by CORS keep you up at night? Do you find yourself mulling over if ECMAScript module are imports idempotent?
This could be your dream job!
Engineering a highly complex distributed system that is easy to operate via elegantly designed APIs is a non-trivial effort. It requires solid software development skills, and more importantly, a sharp mind and the ability to think like a user. We also care deeply about giving you full ownership of what you’re working on. Our company fundamentally believes great minds achieve greatness when they are set free and are surrounded and challenged by their peers, which is clearly visible in our organization. At Elastic, we effectively don’t have a hierarchy to speak of. We feel that anyone needs to be in the position to comment on truly anything, regardless of his or her role within the company.
