Sr Javascript Engineer- Cloud- @ Elastic (Elasticsearch)

Elastic

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?
