Elastic builds search. Technical people -- the developers, operators and analysts -- love Elastic products and their continued evolution. Elastic Workplace Search introduces Elastic to an exciting new market: everyone! Search everything, anywhere -- all of your workplace data, whether it’s from GitHub, Google Drive, Confluence, Office365, Salesforce, and many others -- in one unified and delightful search experience. 

We need a vibrant, communicative, and hands-on product designer to help us translate the raw power of global search into a fun and delightful experience. This is a defining role for a flagship Elastic product, and the team is beyond excited to welcome you.

What You Will Be Doing:

  • Owning product design of a flagship Elastic product: Workplace Search. You’ll have a major impact on visual product direction across web, mobile, and much more.
  • Applying ownership through wireframes, prototypes, user stories, and functional code. You’ll be hands-on!
  • Collaborating with international teammates in a mostly text-based, asynchronous, remote-first team environment with occasional video calls and twice-yearly in-person conferences. You’ll be supported by a great group of people.
  • Adding your unique character and energy to a welcoming, creative, and enjoyable work environment. You can be yourself.

Our Team Style:

  • We appreciate articulate and “low ego” people who want to grow as part of a team.
  • We welcome diversity of all forms, thought above all. We embrace strange and risky ideas and appreciate characters of all sorts.
  • We hold each other accountable and work to a high standard. We take pride in the frequent, safe and graceful delivery of innovative, delightful, and valuable features.
  • We embrace open communication and challenge. We appreciate positivity and vigilance and strive for autonomy, trust, and personal and professional growth.

What You Will Bring:

  • Extensive experience owning product design for a well-designed, at-scale software product. You have accomplished good things!
  • Measured and articulate written and spoken communication skills. You work well with others and can craft concise and expressive thoughts into correspondence: issues, investigations, project briefs, and similar.
  • Fluidity. You are cool with learning new tools, languages, workflows and philosophies. You can function well in an environment that drives towards change.
  • Well developed product design skills. You can articulate your talents into words, wireframes, prototypes and functional code. We use Figma, React, JavaScript/TypeScript, and Ruby/Rails.

If this sounds interesting, we would love to hear from you! Please include whatever info you believe is relevant: resume, GitHub profile, code samples, blog posts and writing samples, links to personal projects, etc.
