Job Description
  • 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.

  • Elastic is seeking a talented Senior JavaScript Engineer to join our team. You will have the opportunity to work with exceptional engineers on cutting edge technology.

You will have front-row seats in supporting the high growth of a SaaS product and the opportunity to work in an impactful, cross-team setting.

Engineering philosophy:

We believe that engineering complex, pluggable software for the web that is built to last the test of time is both tricky and exciting. Doing so requires a team of diverse individuals, with sharp minds and the ability to empathize with our users, working together with mutual respect and a common mission.

We 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 throughout our organization.

Come help us to build the best Open Source Application Experience platform in the Cloud. Our service is operated at planet scale - across major Cloud providers in 50 plus regions across the world, hosting mission critical workloads for thousands of customers in every industry. You will work on many key projects and initiatives partnering closely across many Elastic teams and communities.

What you will be doing:
  • Work closely with Design and Product teams to build powerful end-user facing experiences.
  • Innovate, lead and contribute to UIs for turnkey solutions.
  • Collaborate with other development teams both in Elastic and across our community, including code and technical design reviews to complete product deliverables.
  • Write and maintain high-quality JavaScript and TypeScript code.
  • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes.
What you bring along:
  • 5+ years of Frontend focused development work, including an excellent understanding of UX/UI design principles.
  • Demonstrated ability building scalable applications with JavaScript or TypeScript.
  • Understanding of at least one modern JS framework such as React.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, a teammate with strong analytical, problem solving, debugging, and troubleshooting skills.
  • Ability to work autonomously in a globally distributed team.
Bonus points:
  • Knowledge and experience with Elasticsearch or Kibana is a plus.
  • Experience with Node.js
