At Elastic, we have a simple goal: to solve the world's data problems with products that delight and inspire.

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.

This is a distributed role working from home or your local co-working space if you do not live by an Elastic-affiliated workplace. We are looking to add this teammate in the USA or Canada.
You will play a key role in the design of policies and procedures involving accounts payable and the financial impact of those policies on the company’s publicly-reported financial statements. You will develop and grow the global Accounts Payable Team, improve the design of processes that currently exist in Netsuite (ERP) and Concur, as well as automate aspects of the Accounts Payable overall process that are currently performed manually or with lesser automation.
