I have been working at Elastic full-time
Leadership is very switched on, some of the smartest people in the industry out there. Founder thinks ten steps ahead and has delivered industry leading results and moves that seem risky from a corporate/business perspective, but is for the good of the community.
Being distributed means you take calls at odd hours occasionally and sometimes the teams you need aren't immediately available during your hours but it's pretty rare - they try to ensure someone is always available in each timezone.
Stock options could be better.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Elastic (New York, NY (US)).
I sent the application, and after some time got invited to a screening Zoom screening meeting. We had a nice chat and after that I was told they'll come back after discussing with the team lead after a couple of days.
It's more than a week and they don't answer my emails. Even though I explicitly told them I got another offer, and let's start the process only if Elastic can reach the decision in 2 weeks.
Elastic contacted me and apologized for getting back to me late, due to an emplooyee being out of office.
Thanks for your story of 5 years at Elastic David !
