Job Details

#WeAreCrowdStrike and our mission is to stop breaches. As a global leader in cybersecurity, our team changed the game. Since our inception, our market leading cloud-native platform has offered unparalleled protection against the most sophisticated cyberattacks. We work on large scale distributed systems, processing over 1 trillion events a day with a petabyte of RAM deployed in our Cassandra clusters - and this traffic is growing daily. We're looking for people with limitless passion, a relentless focus on innovation and a fanatical commitment to developing and shaping our cybersecurity platform. Consistently recognized as a top workplace, CrowdStrike is committed to cultivating an inclusive, remote-first culture that offers people the autonomy and flexibility to balance the needs of work and life while taking their career to the next level. Interested in working for a company that sets the standard and leads with integrity? Join us on a mission that matters - one team, one fight.

About the Role:

Have you spent hours arguing about tabs versus spaces? Does correlating and analyzing data at massive trillions-of-events-per-day scale excite you? Do you care deeply about cybersecurity and want to play an active role in helping to secure organizations from cyberattacks? Hi, we'd like to meet you.

We need a new senior engineer to join our growing Next-gen SIEM team and help us build the next generation of security management. You'll be designing and developing world-class solutions which enable security analysts to be more effective and efficient at incident management, threat hunting, and response. You'll surface threats in their environments by detecting malicious activity within data across multiple security domains using advanced correlation and ML. Sound like a challenge? It is! If that's what you're after, we'd love to hear from you.

What You'll Do:
  • Develop Go-based microservices to support new and existing features which help detect cyber attacks, as well as RESTful APIs to support customer-focused workflows.
  • Take end-to-end ownership, both individually, and as part of a team, for delivery of projects of increasing complexity.
  • Work closely with designers, product managers, and engineers across product groups to understand, design, and implement solutions.
  • Mentor junior engineers on the team via pair programming, code reviews, and one-on-one knowledge sharing.
  • Challenge the status quo by continuously re-evaluating our features, infrastructure, and services for areas where we can improve architecture, user experience, performance, latency, or stability.
  • Relentlessly pursue quality by following engineering best practices including: Appropriate testing paradigms, effective peer code reviews, logging, monitoring, and resilient architecture patterns.
  • Utilize Kafka for event-driven workflows, Redis for distributed caching, and Cassandra, ElasticSearch, or PostgreSQL for data storage.
  • Provide monitoring and operational & customer support for production services owned by our team.

What You'll Need:
  • Computer science degree or commensurate experience.
  • Solid understanding of distributed systems, scalability, RESTful patterns, and multithreading concepts; knowledge of software development best practices and willingness to learn more.
  • Proficiency building and scaling services in production using Go, Python, Java, or C#.
  • Track record of leading projects and delivery on schedule.
  • Passion for customer success and guides decisions with the end user in mind.
  • Effective communication across functions and levels throughout the company.
  • Initiative to pick up and fix issues as you find them, without waiting to be assigned.

Bonus Point:
  • Currently developing Go-based web services for scalable microservices architectures.
  • Familiarity with AWS, Cassandra, Kafka, ElasticSearch, Redis, Grafana.
  • Experience with containerization and container orchestration technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes.
  • Experience working in cybersecurity or intelligence fields.
