Job Description

Elasticsearch is on a mission to make real-time data exploration easy and available to anyone. We spend our days engineering the world’s most advanced open source search and analytics engine, which is rapidly becoming the most popular solution in this space. The company has joint headquarters in the San Francisco Bay Area and Amsterdam. We are experiencing tremendous growth and our products have been downloaded more than 10M times. Top-tier VC firms Benchmark Capital, Index Ventures, and NEA have invested more than $100M in Elasticsearch.

We are currently seeking Technical Trainer to join Elasticsearch. The successful candidate will be responsible for delivering technical training to our customers as well as helping to create and maintain our curriculum of training courses, which cover Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana.
