The Observability team is in charge of developing solutions that focus on application developers and engineers that run infrastructure and services supporting these applications. Elasticsearch is an efficient datastore for logs, metrics, and application traces, supporting the three pillars of observability. The Observability team builds and maintains solutions that make getting insights from this data turnkey and efficient, such as our APM, Metrics, Logs and Uptime solutions. When developing these solutions, we think about the problem end-to-end: how do we automatically collect data from common data sources, how do we store it efficiently in Elasticsearch, how do we present this information to the user, what actions do we take on the insights from the data? All of these aspects are important in bringing a turnkey solution to the market.

As a Grafana engineer on the Observability team, you will be working on the Elasticsearch plugin for Grafana, building first-class support for Elasticsearch into Grafana, and ensuring Grafana users receive Elasticsearch support and features they need.

The team is diverse and distributed across the world, and collaborates on a daily basis over GitHub, Zoom, and Slack.

What you will be doing
  • Work on the Elasticsearch plugin for Grafana
  • Interact with the community, understand their needs and help them use our products
  • Collaborate with product managers and the Elasticsearch team
  • Spread the word, write blog posts about features you worked on, speak at conferences, if you are willing to
What you will bring along
  • Prior experience contributing to Grafana
  • Knowledge of Grafana internals
  • Experience with both TypeScript and Go
  • Experience writing automated tests
  • Ability to work in a fast paced start-up environment
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, a great teammate with strong analytical, problem solving, debugging and troubleshooting skills
  • Strong preference for Open Source experience
  • Ability to work independently

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.

Raya

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.

Daniel

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.

Jeremy

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.

Kevin

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.
