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. The Elastic family unites employees across 40+ countries into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.

  • Visualizations: Collaborate with IT and build visualizations (in Kibana and/or a similar tool) that help our Sales team and leaders
  • Audit and Enablement: you’ll educate and advise key partners about the data outputs and metrics you generate
  • Driving Requirements: help build the requirements for how our Sales Strategy business partners use these insights and their impact
  • Standardization and Documentation - The SQL analyst will be encouraged to maintain high levels of standards including documentation
Key Skills:
  • Proven track record of 5+ years, and a solid grasp of SQL Databases, with a slight preference for exposure to Google BigQuery or Postgres.
  • Expert-level ability to craft SQL queries and create views using data from multiple tables and sources, with a focus on aggregations and statistical functions.
  • Proven track record of the full scope of a SQL analyst: from requirements gathering → data modeling → Data QA/peer-reviewing → building visuals → presenting results to partners → enabling self-service tools for the end-user.
  • Prior experience working in sales operations
  • Have a passion for optimizing process and structure.
  • Curious and using data daily to make decisions
  • Thrive in navigating ambiguity
  • Solid understanding of Microsoft Excel: most of your team members have models in excel that they’re looking to bring into BI
  • Incredible attention to detail
  • High autonomy. You will be given the chance to create a high impact on the success of the company as a whole and understand the keys to success in a highly transparent multi-functional role.
  • knowledge of the Elastic stack, particularly Kibana.

An Insider's view of Elastic

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

One of the really amazing things about working for a distributed company is that you have true flexibility to find your work/life balance. There are no fixed hours and nobody is watching. I think being able to manage your day and step away and come back is a really powerful thing for many Elasticians.


Director of Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

When we're able to capture the stories about how our customers are using our software to fight child sex exploitation, for example, or how NASA is using Elasticsearch to further investigations into whether there is water on Mars — that gets Elasticians excited, and makes them feel proud of what the company is doing.


Senior Manager, Customer Advocacy

What makes someone successful on your team?

The people I’ve seen rise quickly and do well are people who are sponges. Those people who, in any situation they’re sitting in, are learning and absorbing more information.

Elastic products might be very foreign to a new hire, and it’s important that they learn every single aspect of Elastic products.


Sales Specialist

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We want our engineers to feel free to create in the manner they work best. To feel empowered. Having distributed engineers made this an easy one to solve. Managing distributed Elasticians makes it impossible to micromanage people, even if you wanted to. So we embrace that.


SVP, Engineering

What's something quirky about your company?

Our Source Code is truly what makes Elastic, Elastic. It may just seem like a pretty set of values, but Elastic really lives by it. Personally “Space, Time” and “Home, Dinner” are the biggest reasons I chose Elastic — I knew those promises would give me the flexibility to be the parent, sibling, and daughter I want to be.
