Job type: Full-time

Category: Design


At Elastic, we have a simple goal: to solve the world's data problems with products that delight and inspire. As the company behind the popular open source projects — Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats — we help people around the world do great things with their data. From stock quotes to Twitter streams, Apache logs to WordPress blogs, our products are extending what's possible with data, delivering on the promise that good things come from connecting the dots. Diversity drives our vibe. We unite employees across 30+ countries into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.


Today, Cloud runs primarily in public cloud environments like AWS and GCP, allowing customers to provision and scale Elastic clusters in a turnkey fashion. In addition to our SaaS solution we're working on bringing this same simplicity of deployment and automation to customers who want to run and manage multiple Elastic clusters on-premise (in their own data centers).You will be contributing significantly to both initiatives. You will also be integral in crafting the products we build, not just implementing specs.


Are you a front-end developer, ready to work on Cloud, our Elasticsearch-as-a-service product offering?


If so, we'd love to talk. To get a feel for some of the things we work with, take a look at this blog post by one of our team members. https://www.elastic.co/blog/color-coded-visualizations-react 


If you read this far and think, “that's me!” then you probably won't need to read any further and we should have a conversation. But if you are in any doubt the type of experiences we expect you to have then the following should help clarify;


What you will be doing:

You will innovate, lead and contribute to the development and user experience of both our hosted and on-premise offerings.

You will work closely with the Elastic Cloud Product, Operations and Engineering teams to define and shape the tasks we work on.

Assist in designing a scalable cloud offering working across everything from a few Elasticsearch clusters and Kibana instances to many thousands

What you've done:

At least five years of web application development experience

Extensive and deep JavaScript knowledge

Strong proficiency in at least one JavaScript framework like React, Angular, Ember or Backbone

Ability to work with a worldwide team in a distributed work environment

Enthusiastic about at least one of the following: UX, accessibility, security, design, or quality assurance

Bonus points:

Track record in UX design is a huge plus

Experience building React applications in a large scale production environment

Understanding of the operational concerns for cloud-based software deployments

Helped build the UI for a highly technical Software-as-a-Service or Platform-as-a-Service

You believe in progress over perfection

We love people that are able to jump into new problem spaces and quickly identify potential pitfalls in design, implementation or UX

Additional Information:

Competitive pay and benefits

Catered lunches, snacks, and beverages in most offices

An environment in which you can balance great work with a great life

Passionate people building great products

Employees with a wide variety of interests

Distributed-first company with employees in over 30 countries, spread across 18 time zones, and speaking over 30 languages! Some even fly south for the winter :)

    About Us

    At Close, we're building the sales communication platform of the future. With our roots as the very first sales CRM to include built-in calling, we're leading the industry toward eliminating manual processes and helping companies to close more deals (faster). Since our founding in 2013, we've grown to become a fully profitable, 100% globally distributed team of 33 high-performing, happy people that are dedicated to building a product our customers love.

    We are growing the Product team (of 3) to help define the features that will have the biggest impact for our customers and their sales teams.


    About You

    You are a generalist with a wide set of design skills including user interface design, user experience design, an understanding of usability concerns, and the ability to write easily digestible copy. You enjoy the challenge of designing for sometimes deeply technical problems.

    You have worked with, or helped create, design systems and understand version control for design files (we use Abstract).

    You are comfortable working remotely as part of a small team, with a high level of autonomy. You have designed beautiful and elegant solutions for desktop SaaS products and are familiar with the space.

    You understand technical constraints, their impact, and can adjust your design approach accordingly. You enjoy the problem solving aspects of design, and you’ve had experience working on complex web or desktop apps.

    You have been wrong and can admit it. You can articulate why it happened and how you’ve learned from that experience. You’re not precious about your designs and can accept constructive feedback freely. Equally, you can argue effectively for your viewpoint when needed.

    You are able to easily demonstrate your process for taking rough concepts and briefs from lo-fi sketches through to high fidelity mockups ready to be implemented. You’re confident in communicating the rationale of your decisions.

    You are in a European or American timezone.


    About The Role

    You will be responsible for understanding and designing new features and improvements as part of a small feature team. You will ensure the solution satisfies the initial problem statement, is technically viable, and integrates well with existing design patterns (or adds new ones where necessary).

    You’ll be working with Craig (best axe thrower in the company), Ben (not the best axe thrower in the company), and Anthony on a daily basis and often with the engineering team throughout the design process.

    We use Freehand, Sketch, and Abstract as our design toolset and Slack, GitHub, and Asana extensively for communication within and between teams.


    Why work with us...?

    • 100% Remote (we believe in trust and autonomy)
    • 2 x Annual Team Retreats ✈️ (Lisbon Retreat Video)
    • Competitive salary
    • Medical, Dental with HSA option - 99% premiums paid (US residents)
    • 5 Weeks PTO + 6 Government Holidays + Dec 24 - Jan 1 Company Holiday
    • Parental Leave (10 wks primary caregiver / 4 wks secondary caregiver)
    • 401k matching at 4% (US residents)
    • Our story and team 🚀
    • Glassdoor Reviews

    At Close, everyone has a voice. We encourage transparency and practicing a mature approach to the work-place. In general, we don’t have strict policies, we have guidelines. Work/Life harmony is an important part of our organization - we believe you bring your best to work when you practice self care (whatever that looks like for you).

    We come from 12 countries and 14 states; a collection of talented humans rich in diverse backgrounds, lifestyles and cultures. Twice a year we meet up somewhere around the world to spend time with one another. We see these retreats as an opportunity to strengthen the social fiber of our community.

    This team is growing in more ways than one - we’ve recently launched 8 babies (and counting!). Unanimously, our favorite and most impactful value is “Build a house you want to live in.” We strive to make decisions that are authentic for our organization. At Close, we have a high care factor for one another, in making an awesome product and championing the success of our customers.
