Evolving and diversifying Elastic’s engineering team with the Elastigrad Program

At Elastic, we are continually evolving and growing and with this comes new opportunities. We are excited to announce our latest initiative, the Elastigrad Program, which is focused on recruiting early-career engineers. 

Ash Kulkarni, Elastic’s Chief Product Officer, is dedicated to creating an even more diverse engineering team, and the Elastigrad Program is a natural extension of our investment in our people. “By recruiting and training early-career engineers, we will have fresh perspectives to help us continue to drive innovation and build solutions to help customers around the world search, observe and protect their organizations.”

Our Elastigrads will be able to devote their time to key projects and initiatives while partnering closely with experienced engineers. These opportunities are full-time positions with comprehensive benefits including a technical mentor and competitive salaries. 

Strength in diversity

Our engineering teams at Elastic include talented people from around the world, which means they bring unique ideas and experiences. Some engineers are self taught, others come from a Bootcamp or a traditional college program, and even some from marketing

Various partners across the organization and a team of mentors are excited to share their knowledge and expertise with our new engineers from Canada, France, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, Spain, United Kingdom, and the United States. 

We’re distributed by design and since we can be everywhere, we are able to understand users from anywhere.

Journey of growth and exploration

This first group of Elastigrads will pave the way for future engineers, addressing customer challenges in inspiring, creative ways. We’re excited to welcome our new Elastigrads and continue on this journey of growth and exploration together. 

At Elastic, our goal is to build a company that creates well together, imagines well together, and laughs well together.
