Building Distributed Systems in Distributed Teams


Building distributed systems is notoriously hard… building a distributed team, even more so. At Elastic — the company behind the open source tools Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash — everything is distributed; the company and our products. This talk dives into the details of how Elastic is thriving on its distributed model:

  • How Elastic started to be distributed by design.
  • What our shared values are and what we have learned as we progressed and grew to our current size.
  • What the day of an Elastician can look like.
