We're looking to add a new node to the Product Marketing cluster, focusing on Elastic Enterprise Search solutions. As a Product Marketing Engineer at Elastic you work closely with the Product Management and Solution Architect teams to produce demo content and provide a reliable environment to access it.

Ideally, you bring a strong search background and front end design experience. In that context, for this role, you’ll help us to run a mix of static and on demand environments where internal users can launch their own demos and show the power of Elastic Enterprise Search -- this same environment hosts demos of the Elastic Stack, Security and Observability as well, so ability to collaborate in a dynamic environment is critical.

What you will be doing

  • Creating new demo content, based on our solution, Elastic Enterprise Search, and search use cases. Building apps, UIs, and thinking of creative ways to exploit and market our technology.
  • Improving our automation, build and processes to make demo maintenance easier, more reliable and faster.
  • Writing technical blog posts on how to use our technology.
  • Maintaining current demos - upgrading them to the latest version of the Elastic Stack and enhancing them to exploit new features.
  • Supporting the existing infrastructure and demo environment that provides content for our field.

Essential Skills you will bring along

  • Coding skills in Javascript (React ideally)
  • Broad software development background (we use Python, JavaScript, Go and more!) but you're skilled in at least one web ecosystem.
  • You can build UIs quickly with a variety of platforms
  • Site-Reliability Engineering -  We are an operations team. We solve problems with code, but fundamentally we keep things working. You may have worked as an SRE.
  • Infrastructure-as-code - You may have experience automating production Linux systems collaboratively, deriving configuration through version control, and are proficient in some of Docker, Puppet, Chef, Ansible, Salt, Habitat, Dhall, Terraform, Packer, your own shell scripts. Maybe you've thrown half of that away and use Kubernetes. We do that too
  • You've built web apps and web sites from scratch, preferably using search
  • A passion for search and the Elastic Stack.
  • You’re excited to learn new technologies and don’t mind inheriting code from others.
  • You value progress over perfection. You’re adept at building demos and proofs of concepts, and can live with skipping tests.

Preferred Skills that are a nice to have 

  • Design experience - You're a creative and have a knack for designing simple, beautiful UIs. You enjoy creating great user experiences.
  • An understanding of search - even better if you've used the Elastic Stack
  • Experience in traditional enterprise search or e-commerce
  • You've worked for a search vendor
  • You have some exposure to the sales experience where demos play a crucial role, and know what it takes to wow prospect

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.
