As a Principal Engineer at Elastic on the Enterprise Search Ingestion team, you’ll be working collaboratively in a distributed working environment delivering valuable features for the Elastic Enterprise Search solution, including the Elastic App Search and Workplace Search products. Enterprise Search lets users easily implement powerful, modern search experiences for their websites, apps, or workplaces. Search it all, simply. We’re seeking an exceptional software engineer and communicator to help push the product and team to new heights. The Ingestion team in Enterprise Search is responsible for data ingestion from a wide range of content sources and our web crawler.

In this role, you will be expected to lead technical project design, provide daily individual code contributions, and coordinate efforts by working closely with your peers, team leads, tech leads, and product leads.

What You Will Be Doing:

  • You will be building product enhancements for Enterprise Search, including third-party integrations, the Elastic web crawler, and building developer tools to ease data ingestion.
  • You will collaborate with and mentor international teammates in a mostly text-based, asynchronous, remote-first team environment with occasional video calls and yearly conferences. You’ll be hands-on with the team and codebase, reviewing work and providing constructive feedback.
  • You will help execute the team’s overall strategy, collaborating on a product roadmap and then breaking it into technical deliverables. You’ll act as an important and communicative part of an engaged and spirited team.

Our Team Style:

  • We appreciate articulate and “low ego” people who want to grow as part of a team.
  • We welcome diversity in all forms. 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 and valuable features.
  • We embrace open communication and challenge. We appreciate positivity and vigilance and strive for autonomy, trust, and personal and professional growth.
  • Our backend stack is in Ruby and Java/JRuby with tight coupling to Elasticsearch. We welcome any language background with the expectation to become proficient in Ruby quickly.

What You Will Bring:

  • Previous experience in a technical role wherein you defined product goals and iterated them into scaled software. You understand that what you build needs to empower and engage the customer, the person.
  • Previous experience building and maintaining ETL pipelines and processes.
  • Previous experience with operational components of modern web applications including asynchronous job queues, daemonized services, and CI/CD pipelines.
  • Previous experience with open source.
  • Excellent practical judgment. You know how to prioritize, when to collaborate and ask for help, and when to be independent.
  • Measured and articulate written and spoken communication skills. You work well with others and can craft concise and expressive thoughts into correspondence: issues, investigations, documentation, and onboarding material.
  • An interest in learning new tools, languages, workflows, and philosophies that can help you grow. You can function well in an environment that drives towards change.
