We are looking for an experienced product leader to be responsible for Elasticsearch: the search engine and datastore at the heart of Elastic's offerings, which powers use-cases from Enterprise Search, to Observability, to Security, and even analysis of telemetry data from NASA rovers on Mars. We are looking for a person who has helped define the vision and made critical decisions in the evolution of a big product or platform over multiple years, and who has experience leading and growing a product management team.  

What you will be doing:

  • Lead and grow a team of top notch Product Managers.
  • Define and track product success KPIs.
  • Work closely with the Elasticsearch Team and Tech leads to define and maintain a shared vision for the future of Elasticsearch.
  • Work with downstream product and engineering teams at Elastic to discover, align, and prioritize their needs: understanding their timing requirements and helping think through phased approaches.
  • Work with our Sales & Marketing teams on go-to-market, messaging, competitive analysis and enablement.
  • Capture market competitive and trend data, customer and community feedback and usage information to develop product insights.

What you bring along:

  • 10+ years in Product Management, 5+ leading product teams
  • Product Management experience leading a database, data store, or search engine product
  • Experience with one or more of the common use-cases for the Elastic Stack, such as application search, logging, metrics, APM, security analytics, GIS, etc.
  • Excellent written and spoken communications skills
  • Solid understanding of B2B business models and sales motions
  • Curiosity and an open mind
  • Ego-free attitude — we are here for the success of the team and the company
  • Empathy, transparency, and a good sense of humor

Experience/interest in some of these areas would be nice:

  • Direct experience with the Elastic Stack
  • Comfort working in a very cross-functional role, with a highly distributed, global team
  • Open source software and/or commercial open source companies 
  • Experience with products offered both via SaaS and self-managed
  • Good sense of user experience for developer oriented products
