What makes up Elastic’s Source Code?


A company’s culture shapes how people interact with each other, how much they like their job, and how invested they are in your organization. In short: culture is incredibly important. Because when people feel supported by their culture, they are more productive, less likely to leave, and most importantly, happier in their roles.  

Here at Elastic, we’ve built a  set of shared values, called our Source Code. Ask any Elastician and they’ll tell you that it is core to everything we do as a company. Not only is it discussed during the interview process, but there is an entire onboarding session dedicated to understanding its components. Bottom line: We want our Elasticians to live and breathe Elastic’s Source Code. 

Our values are rooted in diversity, autonomy, authenticity, and flexibility. But, as our business evolves, so should our Source Code. Recently, we recently added a new pillar to our original set of values that reflects our dedication to our customers. 

Customer, 1st is the idea that our customers and community is at the heart of everything we do. It’s in how we interact, it’s in our products, it’s in our every day work. By being passionate about our users’ needs, we’re passionate about Elastic.
