Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: Distributed

Category: Software Dev


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 real time 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. The Elastic family unites employees across 30+ countries into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.

The Elastic Stack is the unparalleled swiss army knife of search and analytics. It takes hundreds of engineers and large infrastructure to keep its development on track. A critical piece of the effort is our multi-cloud, distributed CI environment. We need a dedicated lead to take over the people management, operational health, and delivery of its team.

What you will be doing
  • Manage and mentor a globally distributed team of 5-10 experienced engineers. You would evaluate performance, give timely feedback, and advocate for their career paths.
  • Work closely with engineering teams and leadership to define requirements and roadmap. The product teams depend on CI constantly. Proactivity is important.
  • Organize effective call rotations to maximize service health and engineer quality of life.
  • Foster a culture of mutual respect, collaboration, and consensus-based decision-making.
  • Commit to software-first principles. We are developers that manage state.
  • Plan for team capacity and help drive recruitment of high quality people.
What you will bring along
  • Significant experience leading teams of software engineers, preferably in site reliability. You don't need to have been a people manager, but this is a people management role. You can (and should!) write code, but your priority is to help others do it.
  • Significant experience building and deploying complex, and completely automated, systems. We run a multi-cloud, multi-OS environment built upon immutable infrastructure. It's a mixture of off-the-shelf Jenkins and custom software. You'll need technical empathy as you help your reports fulfill their mission.
  • Expert-level programming experience in at least one computer language and deep familiarity with its build and testing ecosystem.
  • Genuine care for the well-being of your employees, striving to be an emotionally intelligent, egoless, humble, servant-leader. A sense of humor is a big help. You believe that a diverse company is a better company.
Experience/interest in these would be nice:
  • Search and analytics tools, particularly the Elastic Stack. A love for what our company builds will only help.
  • We are a polyglot team; a love for languages would serve you well.
  • Speaking/presenting publicly. You will need to communicate effectively to others.
  • Open source. OSS is our DNA. If you have ever contributed to an open-source project, or even just followed one closely you'll have a good sense for how our company operates.
Additional Information
  • Competitive pay
  • Equity
  • 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

  • Heroku / Salesforce (North America)
    2 days ago

    Heroku is looking for a Developer Advocate with past experience in a developer-facing role, creating demos, writing blog posts, and building communities.

    Heroku’s Developer Advocacy team is small but scrappy and distributed around the U.S. We educate, inspire, and spark community among developers and also advocate internally for them.

    Do you consider yourself a software developer, but you are also excited about developer communities and helping other developers? If that sounds interesting to you, please read on.

    Heroku is looking for a Developer Advocate with past experience in a developer-facing role, creating demos, writing blog posts, and building communities. This role can be remote or you can work from a Salesforce office, but we would like you to be in a North American timezone. Also, this role will require 10-30% travel.


    > What is Heroku?

    Heroku’s mission is to create the fastest path for application developers to turn an idea into a production app of any scale. We want to remove every obstacle that slows down creative coders and let them focus on their customers’ experience while leaving everything else to our service. Today, Heroku powers over 7 million apps ranging from personal hobby apps to Internet top 100 apps. In aggregate, we serve more than 23 billion requests per day. Yet, it only takes minutes for a new developer to get the first app up and running, ready to serve customers.

    Heroku is one of the fastest growing businesses at Salesforce.

    Heroku’s Developer Advocacy team is small but scrappy and distributed around the U.S. We educate, inspire, and spark community among developers and also advocate internally for them. Sometimes this means working individually on some code or a demo or a conference talk. Other times, this means working closely with other Heroku teams like Product, Marketing, or Engineering.

    > Some Things You Might Work On

    • Interact (virtually and in-person) with developers

    • Write blog posts

    • Organize meetups

    • Create product demos

    • Record podcasts

    • Test new product features

    • Create conference talks

    • Attend events

    • Design and build a community program

    • Collect and share developer trends, desires, and feedback internally

    • Mentor other developers (writing and speaking)

    • Maybe most importantly, decide which of these are important and define how we work on them


    > Who you are


    CODE

    You're a developer first. As a coder, you can empathize with other developers, build credibility speaking to them, and even sit down with them in a debugging session.

    You have experience with at least one of Heroku’s supported languages: Node, Ruby, Java, PHP, Python, or Go and something else. Experience meaning not just an understanding of the syntax but also the community. That “something else” could be data, Apache Kafka, API design, web performance, mobile development, continuous delivery, microservices, distributed systems design/architecture, AI/ML, etc. Share what you're excited about with us.

    But you aren't satisfied calling yourself just a developer.

    COMMUNITY

    You also like engaging deeply with developer communities. Even better, you've helped build or grow a developer community. This means you've participated in or helped to organize meetups, conferences, or hackathons. Or it could mean that you've been an integral member of a popular open source project, or you've otherwise participated in a community in a meaningful way virtually. Ideally, more than one of these things.

    CONTENT

    Content is how the Developer Advocate communicates their ideas and the meaning behind their code. Whether it's writing a technical blog post, scripting out an engaging demo, crafting a clear GitHub repo README, speaking in a podcast, or presenting an idea or project in a conference talk, content allows us to share our message with and hear feedback from a larger audience.

    You should relish the thought of composing clean, clear prose almost as much as you do writing concise, elegant code and not be averse to speaking in front of a group of your peers.


    Other Desirable Characteristics or Background

    • Infectious energy

    • Excited about Heroku’s desire to provide simple, intuitive tools to developers

    • Experience at a company with a developer-focused product

    • Comfortable (as much as one can be) with public speaking

    • Comfortable speaking with customers
