A Bit About Our Team
These are some of the things that make us tick.
Color Outside the LinesThrowing creative mud at the wall can help drive interesting, unusual ways to connect with our community.
Tell Authentic StoriesWe strive to understand the mindset of customers, community members, and colleagues.
The team collaborates on everything from campaigns and conference swag to blogs and social posts — all ideas are welcome.
As a global community that can tell compelling stories for days (maybe weeks), our team pairs with customers to map their user journey with Elastic and help showcase their experiences, triumphs, and lessons learned. Our team helps connect the dots — from our user’s first time downloading Elastic products to deploying their use cases into production.
Deborah WiltshireVP Global Comms & Customer Advocacy
Stephanie HudsonSenior Director, Customer Advocacy
We are the keepers of company voice, tone, and style in all writing and are tied into content generation across the company. From blog posts to emails to conference collateral and web pages, we’ve taken an oath to string together words that are helpful, concise, and kind — no matter the rhetorical situation. We nerd out over hyphens and give peer reviews on demand. It’s a collaborative, not competitive community of writers pursuing the ultimate goal: to translate intangible Elastic-ness into print.
Haley EshaghContent & Editorial Team Lead
From mapping out email marketing campaigns to audience segmentation, webinar programs, targeted ads, and event promotion, our team focuses on identifying, building, and progressing our relationship with the community. Together, we eat, sleep, and breathe the funnel and the analytics that go with it.
Scott FingerhutVice President of Demand Generation
Some of us have a pen persistently tucked behind an ear. Others conjure the work of Paul Rand by creating a symphony of color as they assemble their next illustrated or animated project. Our design work ranges from product-inspired doodles and blue-whale-sized infographics to zeitgeist campaigns and gotta-have-it swag.
Michal WoronieckiSenior Creative Director
We can plan a conference for thousands of people, and don’t bat an eye when Elastic decides to go on a global, 25-city event tour. As planning masterminds, our team knows how to wrangle resources and meet deadlines as we pull off high-impact and memorable programs for our users, customers, partners, and community.
Katy WrightSenior Events Manager
We are a group of creative technologists that live at the intersection of engineering and storytelling. From producing a video tutorial to composing a complex demo, we love creating technical content that connects the what, how, and why of our product stack in an authentic and engaging way. Whether it’s a minor release or a new product launch, we drive all aspects of the go-to-market strategy — from defining the core message to getting the company enabled and aligned on it. Product managers bring products to life, we bring them to market.
Asawari SamantDirector of Product Marketing
Perhaps the most distributed of all the marketing teams, our group drives tailored programs and events for sales teams around the globe. From regional and customer-specific workshops to scalable, on-demand localized campaigns and blog posts, our crew consists of don’t-worry-we’ve-got-this team members that know how to get it done with the best of ‘em, wherever and in whatever language needed.
Sejal KorenrompSenior Director of Field Marketing
Our group of organizational whizzes solve the puzzle of how to get things done. By blending business demands with Marketing’s creativity, we help turn ideas into successful projects. Our web masterminds are detail-oriented and relentless when it comes to delivering quality web experiences. We keep the Marketing team running through a combination of analytical and communication skills, while switching between going into the details and seeing the big picture simultaneously — everything from swag production to a new page on the website.
