    Elasticsearch is the distributed search and analytics engine that sits at the core of the Elastic Stack. The development team is organised into functional area teams, each with a technical area lead. We are looking for a Team Lead (a Senior Engineering Manager) who will take responsibility for people management and software delivery, working with the close support of technical area leads. You don’t always need to be the person with the answer, but instead should be able to guide discussions at a technical level to help the team make decisions together and communicate effectively. The Elasticsearch team includes engineers from all around the globe so the ability to work within a high-performing, distributed team is essential.

    What you will be doing

    • Manage, mentor and lead a globally distributed team of approximately 7 experienced Java engineers

    • Identify resource requirements and help drive recruitment of high quality colleagues
    • Support the development and training of direct reports through regular performance evaluations
    • Be an awesome person to work with, somebody who sincerely empathizes with others

    What you will bring along

    • Experience leading teams of senior software engineers (this includes direct performance management of tenured software engineers)
    • Experience as a hands-on software engineer (back end focus preferred) so you understand the core principles of the engineering work that is going on in your team
    • A compassionate approach to communication, a good sense of humor, and a genuine interest in the success and growth of the people you work with

    Experience in the following areas would be a bonus

    • Server side Java
    • Distributed systems design and development
