We're looking for a Senior Engineer to join the Elasticsearch - Analytics & Geo team. This globally-distributed team of experienced engineers focuses on the summary/aggregation and geo capabilities of Elasticsearch. If it comes from Elasticsearch and it's elegant, we provided the data for it. Our company is distributed by intention. We hire the best engineers we can find wherever they are, whoever they are. We collaborate across continents every day over email, GitHub, Zoom, and Slack. At our best, we write fast, scalable and intuitive software. We believe that the best way to do that is to empower individual engineers, code review every change, decide big things by consensus, and strive for incremental improvements. What You Will Be Doing You'll be a full time contributor, building data intensive new features and fixing intriguing bugs, all while making the code easier to understand. Sometimes you'll need to invent a new algorithm or data structure or find one and implement it. Other times you'll get closer to the disk or disassembly. You'll work with community members from all over the world on issues and pull requests, sometimes prioritising them and handing them off to other SMEs and sometimes handling them yourself. You'll write idiomatic modern Java. Elasticsearch is 99.8% Java so you'll end up confident even if you don't start that way. What You Bring Along You are proficient in low-level Java, standard data structures and concurrency primitives. You can talk about and implement data structures and algorithms from old standbys like heaps and merge sort to unique things customized for our problems. You've used several data storage technologies like Elasticsearch, PostgreSQL, Prometheus, MongoDB, or Cassandra and have some idea how they work and why they work that way. You work with a high level of autonomy. The distributed nature of the company offers freedom to work when and how you see fit, but also requires team members to work independently and reach out for help when stuck. You're comfortable developing collaboratively. Giving and receiving feedback on code and approaches and APIs to build world class software. You have excellent verbal and written communication skills. We try to be respectful, empathetic, and trusting in all of our interactions. Bonus Points You've contributed to open source projects. You've worked on a distributed system. Better if distributed storage technology. You've built things with our Elastic Stack before. You've analyzed a Java heap dump.
