Senior Product Manager - Kibana Platform and Security


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.

We're looking to add a new node to the Elastic cluster as part of the Product Management team. At Elastic, we’re committed to providing the best user experience to our customers and open source community. One of the most important and visible portions of the Elastic Stack is our user interface and platform, Kibana. Kibana empowers millions of users to answer hard questions, with large data sets, at scale, in a secure fashion. To be successful in this role you will need to be a self starter, detail oriented, have defined and/or built out services utilized by a web application, and have experience securing the user interface provided by a modern platform.

  • Gather feedback from the community and customer base to help prioritize and iterate Kibanas platform features.
  • Provide competitive insight into a variety of products and markets for both sales enablement and engineering awareness.
  • Build out net new features that take advantage of these services such as a native Slack application for ChatOps.
  • Work with Kibana security team on compliance initiatives, like FIPS 140-2, PCI DSS, HIPAA, etc.
  • Work with support, product marketing, and sales to ensure the Kibana platform features are properly supported, promoted, and utilized by our users and customers.

What You Bring Along:

  • Product Management experience focusing on security features for modern web applications 
  • Strong understanding of identity management (IAM), single sign-on, authentication and privileged access management domains
  • You are broadly knowledgeable of modern web services and service-oriented architectures (REST API’s), experience with modern web application security models and the middleware components behind them, and understand the challenges that security experts face today.
  • You are curious about how and why our community and customers utilize the Elastic Stack, specifically Kibana.

In addition, you have:

  • Bachelor’s degree in a technical field (e.g. CS, CSE, EE) or meaningful work experience in a technical discipline 
  • Product management or development experience with backend and frontend service-oriented architectures
  • Experience designing user interface security and role-based access controls.
