Great company! Distributed work! work with very smart engineers, who are always ready to help! Management is open and approachable and really cool people!
distributed work sometimes may feel a little lonely; may be more activities to bring engineers together
I applied online. I interviewed at Elastic.
Timewasters. I found these guys in HN. They're on the Who's Hiring thread.
I think they're using recruiting as a way to namedrop/advertise their service, as opposed to having a proportional hiring and need to scale to more employees. Submit form on website, twice over the period of a year or so. They say they like JS and Python and look for open source contributions. My track record is superb. I applied multiple times, each getting a canned response.
No idea, but be careful for these guys doing what MongoDB does. They use recruiting pushes as a way to get their company name around in hopes of selling enterprise services, when in reality, they lack the demand to fill roles proportional to their so-called "talent search".
Just saying - be aware of the possibility. This stuff really hurts people when they're looking for jobs. We appreciate it if you showed how many roles you really are filling - and who you're letting in - so we know whether you are just driving attention in hopes people buy your services, or really want skill and talent.
Thanks for your story of 5 years at Elastic David !
