    Thanks to our ongoing expansion we have the opportunity to grow our Site Reliability Cloud Tooling team. We're a part of the Elastic Cloud Engineering team with a focus on the development of code for administration and automation of the Elastic Cloud SaaS. We are the first line of consumers for Elastic's products and our experience helps influence the direction of the stack. While most organizations may have a single or a handful of Elastic Stack deployments, here you’ll be part of a Cloud team responsible for ensuring the thousands of Elasticsearch clusters we manage are providing a stable and reliable service. We’re looking for people who are just as passionate about troubleshooting issues with distributed systems as they are to automate, code and collaborate to solve problems.

    What you will be doing:

    In this role you will:

    • Participate in SRE software engineering, writing code for the continuing reduction of human intervention in operational tasks and automation of processes.
    • Manage Cloud provider infrastructure, system deployments and product release operations.
    • Monitor the Elastic Cloud platform and Cloud infrastructure, responding to incidents, correcting and improving systems to prevent incidents and planning capacity.
    • You will be asked to assist in automating and implementing secrets management.
    • Be involved in resolving Elastic Cloud customer support issues.
    • Participate in a weekly on-call rotation, using a follow-the-sun model.
    What you bring along:
    • You are either a Software Engineer with real interest, and ideally some experience in Linux systems, networking, monitoring and automation; or an experienced sysadmin or systems engineer with professional skills in Linux, preferably on distributed systems at scale, and a demonstrable interest and experience in using software engineering to solve operational problems.
    • You are comfortable writing software to automate API-driven tasks at scale. Cloud Tooling engineers primarily use Go. Java and Scala are also key languages in the Elastic Cloud product.
    • You have experience automating the build and deployment of software products, and understand the related challenges in distributed systems.
    • You have experience using a Public Cloud: AWS, GCP, Azure, Softlayer or OpenStack.
    • Experience in software development as part of an engineering team.
    • Linux system administration, ideally in a Cloud environment.
    • Experience working remotely with a fully distributed team, with the communication and adaptability it requires.
    • Experience in Cloud secrets management preferred.
    • Experience mentoring and helping folks grow their abilities to use/contribute to the tooling you help build.
    • Ability to explain technical concepts to multiple audiences.
    Bonus Points:

    You don't need to have all of these items, but these represent the types of work you will do at Elastic Cloud.

    • Significant experience with building public cloud agnostic cloud software.
    • Experience with Hashicorp Vault or other large-scale enterprise secrets management tooling.
    • Experience with Docker and knowledge of its ecosystem.
    • Experience with Kubernetes and knowledge of its ecosystem.
