About The Role

Kibana is the data query and visualization UI that we provide to help users communicate and share their analysis with their colleagues and customers. But it’s more than that; Kibana is the platform on which we’re building integrated user experiences for our solutions, including SIEM, APM (Application Performance Monitoring), Enterprise Search, and more. Eventually, we want Kibana to become an ecosystem where partners and third parties can build their own applications on the Elastic stack.

We are looking for a technology and engineering leader to help us realize our goals. We are looking for someone who has designed and built multi-tier JavaScript services and UI frameworks and shipped them in world-class products. We need a person who has made critical decisions in the evolution of a big product and platform over multiple years and releases and who can lead a large team with a coherent vision while making appropriate compromises along the way.

Some of the things you'll work on
  • Helping to define the architecture of Kibana and the roadmap to implement it
  • Evaluating new technology, making recommendations on technological solutions, and establishing a technological vision for Kibana
  • Identify current areas of needed improvement in our product architecture and design methodologies.
  • Bring a pragmatic approach to our current technology stack, with an eye toward improving maintainability, testability, re-use, and reliability of our product offerings. Lead the effort to implement changes based on your analysis
  • Leading technical discussions and requirements analysis with internal and external customers to drive alignment with customer needs
  • Reviewing and approving implementation designs for core features of Kibana
  • Communicating and evangelizing the Kibana architecture roadmap internally and with the community
  • Collaborating with other Tech Leads on the Kibana team and across Elastic to align priorities and roadmaps, and make appropriate technology choices and compromises
  • Guiding the Kibana team and other UI teams using the Kibana platform on best practices and help them to stay aligned with the Kibana architecture roadmap
  • Advising Elastic’s leadership team on emerging and important UI/UX technologies and industry trends
  • Representing company at conferences and networking events
  • Contributing code where it is tactically important or demonstrates a new direction via POC’s and prototypes
  • Reviewing code for critical implementations to ensure they achieve their architecture goals
  • Interviewing engineers for the team
  • Mentoring senior engineers 
What you will bring along:
  • You have been in a technical leadership role for a product with a significant user-interface codebase
  • Previous architect or technical lead experience on large projects with high level of autonomy ie: more than 20 engineers and multiple years and releases
  • Strong JavaScript knowledge
  • Understanding of many legacy and modern JavaScript frameworks.  Experience building UI platforms targeted at developers.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, a great teammate with strong analytical, problem solving, debugging and troubleshooting skills
  • Direct experience with our technology stack Linux, Windows, iOS, multiple browsers, Node.js, React, Redux and building full stack applications with REST APIs, databases and distributed services
Nice to have
  • Experience using or managing the Elastic Stack and Kibana
  • Record of inheriting existing medium-to-large scale projects
  • Have worked on software that is distributed as installable artifacts (not a SaaS)
  • Have worked on software with a plugin system
Engineering Philosophy

Engineering a highly complex distributed system that is easy to operate via elegantly designed APIs is a non-trivial effort. It requires solid software development skills, and more importantly, a sharp mind and the ability to think like a user. We also care deeply about giving you full ownership of what you’re working on. Our company fundamentally believes great minds achieve greatness when they are set free and are surrounded and challenged by their peers, which is clearly visible in our organization. At Elastic, we effectively don’t have a hierarchy to speak of. We feel that anyone needs to be in the position to comment on truly anything, regardless of his or her role within the company.
