Job Description

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. We unite employees across 30+ countries into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.

We're looking to add a new node to the Elastic Product cluster, as part of the Product Marketing group. Content is at the heart of telling a compelling story about any technology. Technical content takes the compellingness (yes, we know that may not be a word) up a few notches. Why talk about how amazing a feature is, when you can just drop into the product and demo it instead. Product marketing engineers create content that make it possible.

Success in this role will require comfort with getting hands-on with technology and then crafting technical assets that help showcase the strengths of our products in real and relatable ways. This role is perfect for those looking to live at the intersection of technology, business and creativity and work on new tech every everyday.


  • Create compelling technical content (blogs, demos, etc) to showcase Elastic products
  • Build and maintain key demos that are used by Elastic technical field teams (sales engineers, developer evangelists, consultants, etc)
  • Support technical content creation for launch & other go to market activities
  • Be user zero for new features, and provide feedback to engineering & product teams
  • Support a subset of competitive analysis for Elastic products
  • Attend trade shows and other events to help showcase our products
  • Some travel is required

Required Skills and Experience

  • Bachelor’s degree in a technical field (e.g. CS, CSE, EE) or relevant work experience
  • Demonstrated ability to craft engaging technical content, such as demos, blog posts, etc.
  • Direct hands-on experience with Elastic Stack (or similar technology)
  • Solid scripting skills in at least 2 languages (eg. Python, Scala, JavaScript, etc)
  • Strong technical aptitude & curiosity, with a passion for continuous learning
  • Excellent spoken and written communication skills

Desired Skills and Experience

  • Proven ability to weave the what, how and why together when creating technical content
  • Experience wrangling large datasets in search & analytics use cases such as logging, application search, security analytics, APM, etc.
  • Comfort working in a very cross-functional role, with a highly distributed team
  • Whilst software development skills are useful, software design or architecture skills are not required for this role.  Ability to identify efficient means of solving problems in short time frames is preferred.

Additional Information

  • Competitive pay, medical, dental, vision, disability, benefits
  • Stock options
  • 401k
  • Catered lunches, snacks, and beverages in most offices
  • An environment in which you can balance great work with a great life
  • Passionate people building great products
  • Employees with a wide variety of interests
  • Your age is only a number. It doesn't matter if you're just out of college or your children are; we need you for what you can do.
  • Distributed-first company with employees in over 27 countries, spread across 18 time zones, and speaking over 30 languages! Some even fly south for the winter :)
