    1. Principal Software Engineer Interview

      Anonymous Employee in Ireland
      Accepted Offer
      Positive Experience
      Average Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at Elastic (Ireland)


      I applied online and a recruiter contacted me by email a couple of days later. The interview process was as follows:

      1. Introductory video call with the recruiter
      2. Automated online assessment (about 10 questions, one of them a simple coding problem, the others general web development questions)
      3. Interview with the hiring manager. Mostly non-technical with "tell me about a time you did X" type questions.
      4. One hour coding video interview. 40 minutes dedicated to solving a leetcode type problem (didn't expect this for a principal level position, to be honest) and 20 minutes for me asking questions. This interview was extremely rushed.
      5. One hour systems design video interview. They asked me to prepare a 10 minute presentation about a past project in which I had a leadership role, 30 minutes dedicated to a design exercise for which they provided background information in advance, and 20 minutes for free-form Q&A.

    Diversity and Inclusion
    Employee resource groups, or as we like to call them, Elastician resource groups, have been a part of Elastic’s culture since 2016. They started as organic Slack channels that Elasticians could join to connect with others from similar backgrounds or experiences. In 2021, we formalized these ERGs to ensure that the members would have structure, budget, and ultimately, a voice based on any dimension of diversity, allyship, and advocacy. Formalizing these ERGs was an important step in broadening the impact of our collective diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives. ERGs are aligned to shared identities, interests, affinities, or allyships and have visions and goals they are working towards. They allow Elasticians to build a sense of community and belonging outside of their immediate team and allow for knowledge sharing, learning and development, and networking. Diversity has always been a part of our culture. We’re a distributed organization, with employees in more than 40 countries around the world. What unites us is our Source Code, a shared set of ideas that we’re always
