    • We're looking to add a new node to the Elastic Product cluster as part of the Product Management team. Since the very early days at Elastic, we’ve been committed to geospatial search and use cases. Elastic Maps is our latest investment in geo. It is a solution in Kibana that enables our community to build maps and analyze geospatial data in real time with the speed and scale that Elasticsearch provides. In addition to Elastic Maps, we also have the Elastic Maps Service, which is a free service for hosted vector tiles and shapes and core to the solution. Kibana empowers millions of users to answer hard questions and analyze large data sets. We view geo as core to Kibana and the Elastic Stack and see significant opportunity in furthering our communities use cases in addition to disrupting existing markets. To be successful in this role you will need to be a self starter, detail oriented, and have experience building out and working with GIS and location driven applications. You will need to be able to balance technical problem solving with product design and usability. If you are passionate about geo, end user experience, and building simple solutions for complex problems we would love to talk to you!

      What You Will Be Doing:

      You will work together with the Kibana Product Management team, engineering, customers and other internal stakeholders to position and grow adoption of Elastic Maps. Your focus will primarily be in the areas of geospatial data exploration & visualization, map building features & experiences and our hosted geo services.

      You will capture market competitive and trend data, customer and open source community feedback, usage data, and other key information to develop product insights and help drive the product roadmap at scale.

      In addition you will:
      • Gather feedback from the community and customer base to iterate on UIs that are core to the success of Elastic Maps
      • Work closely with our engineering and design teams to introduce new features, workflows and experiences to Elastic Maps and extend to Elastic solutions such as Observability and Security Analytics
      • Build out net new features and products for all geospatial use cases in both self managed and hosted environments
      • Work with support, product marketing, and sales to ensure Elastic Maps is properly supported, promoted, and utilized by the community
      • Provide competitive insight into a variety of products and markets for both sales enablement and engineering awareness
      What You Bring Along:

      You are broadly knowledgeable of modern GIS or geospatial applications design concepts, common data schemas and technologies used to serve and analyze geo data, and technologies for geo data analysis trends and techniques.

      You are curious about how and why our community and customers utilize and extend the capabilities of the Elastic Stack, specifically Elastic Maps and Kibana.

      In addition, you have:
      • Bachelor’s degree in a technical field (e.g. CS, CSE, EE) or meaningful work experience in a technical discipline (mandatory)
      • Comfort working in a very cross-functional role, with a highly distributed, global team
