#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.

About the Role:

We're looking for a Sr. Software Engineer to join our growing Product team. You'll work closely with UI developers and multi-platform endpoint developers to build world class cybersecurity features, workflows, and solutions for the Falcon Platform. The Product development team is involved with the entire development organization and you'll collaborate with many teams across the company. You'll be building highly available services and systems, implemented primarily in Go (Golang), which scale cleanly and reliably to provide high-throughput APIs and data stream message processing. You'll be deploying your quality code to production frequently to the delight of our customers.

We're a remote-first workplace and leverage team productivity tools like Slack, Zoom, and Confluence for day-to-day communication. Occasionally, travel for face-to-face meetings is the most effective way to collaborate when working on larger initiatives.

What You'll Do:
  • Build elegant solutions using Go to support new and existing customer-focused features which help detect targeted cyber attacks and automate threat intelligence production at a global scale.
  • Take end-to-end ownership and responsibility, both individually, and as part of a team, for projects of increasing complexity, including contributions to common or shared code bases.
  • Brainstorm ideas, contribute to designs of systems, and build collaboratively with members across multiple teams. Make well-reasoned design decisions and tradeoffs.
  • Review requirements and proactively identify gaps and technical limitations; communicate these issues early.
  • Collaborate with UX and UI teams to author web service API contracts (REST, Swagger)
  • Research, socialize, and contribute to maintenance and improvement of best practices for software development and web technologies within our group.
  • Continuously re-evaluate our products and services to improve architecture, user experience, performance, latency, and stability. Use knowledge of use cases and product context to propose and execute improvements and optimizations.
  • Relentlessly pursue quality by leveraging engineering best practices including: Appropriate testing paradigms, effective peer code reviews, logging, monitoring, and resilient architecture patterns.
  • Review and update code written in Go, Scala, Python, shell script, and more.

What You'll Need:
  • Computer science degree or commensurate experience (data structures, algorithms, distributed systems, etc.)
  • 8+ years of experience developing, scaling, and supporting back-end services in production.
  • Current experience with any of: Go, Scala, Python, Java, or C#
  • Solid understanding of software development best practices from appropriate testing paradigms to effective peer code reviews and resilient architectures.
  • Good understanding of multi-threading, concurrency, and parallel processing, web services, distributed systems, and scalability challenges.
  • Track record of meeting commitments and delivering on schedule.
  • Requires minimal direction and oversight. Takes initiative to fix issues before being assigned to them. Persistent when facing roadblocks, overcoming them efficiently and pulling in others when necessary.
  • Able to communicate effectively across functions and throughout the organization.
  • Thrives in a fast-paced, test-driven, collaborative, and iterative environment.
  • Obsesses about the user and guides decision-making with the user in mind.
  • Gives and receives frequent feedback with grace and courtesy.
