Machine Learning at Elastic

Machine Learning (ML) for the Elastic Stack allows users to better understand the behavior of their data. We have developed an unsupervised machine learning engine that can plow through large amounts of data and automatically find those insights our users today have been proactively finding using search. Current use cases include finding anomalies within transactions / operational metrics, detecting uncharacteristic user behavior or finding malicious devices.

We have an exciting roadmap and are looking to hire an extraordinary Javascript Engineer to join us. You will have an amazing opportunity to join a small, highly experienced team where you can make an immediate impact and contribution to the development of our new machine learning offerings.

What you will be doing

As a member of the team, you will contribute to the further development and ongoing maintenance of our ML focussed projects.

The ML user interface has to be both beautifully designed to help users to get insight out of their data and also operationally usable allowing them to easily set-up, configure and operationally manage their ML analysis jobs.

You do not need to be a machine learning expert, however you do need to be comfortable working in a data driven development environment using large complex datasets.

In addition, you will be working closely with data, integration, analytics and QA engineers, as well as collaborating with the core Kibana team and the amazing Elastic Stack community.

  • Strong front-end JavaScript, HTML, CSS experience (+3yrs)
  • At least 1 year’s professional experience with TypeScript
  • Good professional working experience with React
