Heya, we’re Elastic

We're the company behind the Elastic Stack — that's Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash. From stock quotes to Twitter streams, Apache logs to WordPress blogs, we help people explore and analyze their data differently using the power of search.


The Story of Search

Search is foundational to many of the experiences we have every day. But it goes deeper than we might realize. The Story of Search is much more than search boxes and the top 10 results. In fact, there's a good chance that many of the problems you face each day are actually search problems.

  • We’re a distributed company

    Just like our products, our company finds strength in distribution. For us, it’s critical to building a great company and great products.

  • Our teams have character(s)

    From engineering to HR operations, product marketing and legal, learn what makes our teams tick, which is the right fit for you, and where opportunities await.

  • Free and open, it’s our heart

    Our company is built on a heritage of open source, which builds a community that keeps everyone honest in how we engineer products that users know and love.


Our story begins with a recipe

Well, several recipes, really. What started as a side project to create a search box for a recipe app sparked the creation of an entire ecosystem built on open source and powerful search experiences. From the early days of Elasticsearch to building solutions on top of the Elastic Stack, this is our adventure as we know it today.

And our source code is us

What makes Elastic, Elastic? Great question. Articulating the answer started with a blank document (the new-age napkin, really) in a Tokyo bar followed by more thought, introspection, and iteration. What resulted was a set of ideas rather than a statement of corporate values to keep us honest as we go about our business.


Consider joining our team

We're looking to hire the best planet Earth has to offer. Join us to launch a new career or grow an existing one — either way, adventure awaits. With people all over the globe, we care more about what you can do than where you rest your head.
