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 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. We unite Elasticians across 30+ countries (and counting!), 18 timezones and 30 different languages into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.
We are on the lookout for a Competitive Intelligence Lead. This individual will create and continually refine a competitive strategy for our products and how we take them to market. Based on the variety of use cases our technology enables, Elastic competes in a diverse and ever-changing space. This individual will ensure our Field teams remain informed and armed with the information they need to be successful in the market while also being active in our community and in front of prospects/customers. If you have experience building out competitive strategy for companies in the search, logging, analytics, security, or APM space and you are at your best when you are in front of customers, we’d love to hear from you!
You will craft an ongoing competitive program at Elastic and maintain the structure of how to track the various efforts within the program over time. You will collaborate with various internal partners to build external strategies for competitive messaging, including competitive replacement customer stories, technical blogs, battle-cards, etc.
You are in a competitive-focused role now. You prefer to remain hands-on and technical, yet want the ability to effectively communicate about our technology and opportunities to be in front of diverse audiences. You have ample competitive materials that you authored to show us, too!
