We’re a distributed, global company (and proud of it), but we do want to give Elasticisians a place to connect face-to-face should they choose. In fact, building community is one of our top priorities here at Elastic. That’s why we have offices in 15 cities around the world. While some Elasticians use them to work and connect, we also use them to host in-person events, like this summer’s Elasticamp.
Currently, we have offices in: Amsterdam, Arlington, Austin, Bangalore, Berlin, Chicago, Copenhagen, London, Munich, New York, Paris, San Francisco, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo.
What makes our offices special is that each one is designed with its location in mind. We want our employees to feel at home in their local office, so we hired local designers to create murals on the walls of each office to bring to life the essence, vibrancy, and culture of each Elastic city.
We’re so thankful that we’re able to showcase these artists’ designs so our employees can enjoy a piece of local, original art.
Here are some of the murals that decorate our office walls:
Artist: Wallnuts, Jessica Smith
Amsterdam has two murals: one in a corridor that is city-themed with various homages to Amsterdam (like Stroopwafels and bicycles!) and one with the tagline, “You know…for search!”.

Arlington, Virginia also has two murals, one in reception and one in the work area. Both feature landmarks in the area and typical architecture.
