The Elastic family unites employees across 30+ countries into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.</p> <p>Do you want to work on <strong>distributed</strong> <strong>geospatial</strong> <strong>search</strong> and analytics software which impacts the lives of millions of people? We are looking for excellent back-end Java engineers who love solving problems. We’re not interested in your previous job title. Instead, we want to collaborate with bright people with a good knowledge of Java and a desire to take on new challenges.</p> <p><strong>Our Engineering Philosophy</strong></p> <p>Engineering a highly complex distributed system that is easy to operate via elegantly designed APIs is a non-trivial effort. It requires solid software development skills, and more importantly, a sharp mind and the ability to think like a user. We also care deeply about giving you full ownership of what you’re working on. Our company fundamentally believes great minds achieve greatness when they are set free and are surrounded and challenged by their peers, which is clearly visible in our organization.
