Principal Product Manager at Elastic


Title: Observability – Principal Product Manager – Kubernetes Monitoring

Location: Distributed, Global

The Observability team is in charge of developing solutions that focus on application developers and engineers that run infrastructure and services supporting these applications. Elasticsearch is an efficient datastore for logs, metrics, and application traces, supporting the three pillars of observability. The Observability team builds and maintains solutions that make getting insights from this data turnkey and efficient, such as our APM, Infrastructure Monitoring, Logs, and Uptime solutions. When developing these solutions, we think about the problem end-to-end: how do we automatically collect data from common data sources, how do we store it efficiently in Elasticsearch, how do we present this information to the user, how do we correlate and enhance across data sources, what actions do we take on the insights from the data? All of these aspects are important in bringing a turnkey solution to the market.

As a Product Manager responsible for Kubernetes within the Observability team, you’ll be responsible for taking our Kubernetes and CNCF ecosystem integrations to the next level, right from directly impacting leading what we instrument, what data we collect, from directly impacting the roadmap of Kubernetes to providing out of the box content (e.g. dashboards, alerts, etc.) to working with Kubernetes providers and finally leading our K8 observability go to market strategy.
