At Elastic, we have a simple goal: to solve the world's data problems with products that delight and inspire. As the company behind the popular open source projects — Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats — we help people around the world do great things with their data. From stock quotes to Twitter streams, Apache logs to WordPress blogs, our products are extending what's possible with data, delivering on the promise that good things come from connecting the dots. The Elastic family unites employees across 30+ countries into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.
With consulting engineers, solution architects and sales leaders distributed across 30+ countries, our Field Operations team brings incredible diversity to the work that they do every day. You are an experienced HR partner with a thirst for learning and curiosity to learn new technologies in support of this talented globally distributed cast of characters.
What You Will Be Doing:
You will work closely with our leaders to solve business challenges through people solutions, collaborating across boundaries and geographies and thinking differently about how we approach work and teams. Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and dig in? This will require you to think big, use data to drive strategy, challenge convention, and in some cases to reinvent how work is done (we have a LOT of time zones).
Partnering closely with the VP of Global HR and the business, you will lead and influence all HR-related issues across our Field Operations Function (Sales, Sales Ops & Strategy, Professional Services, Sales Engineering), including employee relations, compensation management, organizational planning, and employee engagement. As a team, we will:
Provide insightful data to guide decision-making
Drive business results and engagement metrics
Lead functional and company-wide initiatives (e.g. performance feedback, manager development)
Influence organizational change
Assist with the roll out of new initiatives and projects including compensation strategy, performance management, talent management, and career development
Partner with leaders on performance management and compensation processes
Assisting with other projects such as diversity, employee engagement and recognition programs
Provide management coaching and training where needed to front line managers and senior leaders
Use analytical capabilities to influence business partners with data-driven recommendations
Partner with the business and HR leadership to influence Organizational Design
What You Bring Along:
Bachelor’s degree required; Master’s degree or MBA a plus
8+ years of progressively responsible experience in human resource management, especially in performance management, employee relations, and coaching with a Sales or Field Operations group
Experience working in a global organization, some experience with a start-up environment preferred
Strategic, critical thinker who isn’t afraid to get into the weeds; real passion for problem solving
Ability to build effective work relationships at all levels of the organization, influence behavior, and manage change
Excellent written and verbal communication and presentation skills
High degree of integrity and honesty; ability to exercise confidentiality and neutrality in complex and sensitive situations
You thrive in ambiguity, adapt quickly to a changing environment, take a global view and have a passion for bringing people insights to the business. You know that sometimes laughter is indeed the best solution.
We're looking to hire team members invested in realizing the goal of making real-time data exploration easy and available to anyone. As a distributed company, we believe that diversity drives our vibe! Whether you're looking to launch a new career or grow an existing one, Elastic is the type of company where you can balance great work with great life.
Competitive pay based on the work you do here and not your previous salary
Global minimum of 16 weeks of paid parental leave (moms & dads)
Generous vacation time and one week of volunteer time off
Your age is only a number. It doesn't matter if you're just out of college or your children are; we need you for what you can do.
