At Elastic, we have a simple goal: to solve the world's data problems with products that delight and inspire. As the company behind the popular open source projects — Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats — we help people around the world do great things with their data. From stock quotes to real time Twitter streams, Apache logs to WordPress blogs, our products are extending what's possible with data, delivering on the promise that good things come from connecting the dots. The Elastic family unites employees across 30+ countries into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.
With solutions like Site Search, App Search and Enterprise Search, the Swiftype team at Elastic focuses on bringing the power of the Elastic Stack and open source projects to businesses and teams of all sizes, focusing on powerful search features in a packaged, turn-key experience that can be brought to market rapidly.
We are looking for a (Senior) Product Manager to focus on the Swiftype suite of Search Solutions within Elastic.

The Swiftype product suite is focused primarily on search use cases — from consumer-facing Site Search (e.g. the search bar the helps you find products on an ecommerce website) to internal employee-facing Enterprise search (e.g. search over internal company data that helps you find what you need to get your job done.) In this role, you will be responsible for gathering meaningful market data trends, customer feedback, and application usage data points.
If you are passionate about search, and have an eye for taking complex technical problems and crafting elegant product experiences that mask away complexity, then this job is for you!
You will work together with the Swiftype Product Management team, engineering, and other internal stakeholders to position and grow the Swiftype suite of products.
