#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 Team:

Information Architecture is responsible for CrowdStrike's core data model, metadata catalog and associated query services. The catalog scope runs the gamut from internal sources and users, to trusted third parties, and open industry standards.

Our mission is to enable data interoperability among all consumers, producers, and inquirers.

About the Role:

We are looking for a colleague to help develop and maintain a specialized semantic data framework which serves as the backbone of several cloud services, libraries, and databases at CrowdStrike.

What You'll Do:
  • Design and develop performant services and tools for data modeling, replication, and governance
  • Collaborate with colleagues focusing on query compilers and data pipelines
  • Own features from design to delivery, including sustained care after release
  • Serve as the data modeling expert for the team
  • Collaborate with other teams on cross functional design
  • Understand and evolve the larger system architecture and its impact on development and design

What You'll Need:
  • Experience building data model driven declarative systems
  • Expertise with service-based architectures and distributed databases
  • Experience with developing cloud-based or similar highly concurrent, distributed systems
  • Familiarity with both relational databases and schema-less "NoSQL" or key-value stores
  • Proficient in transforming structured and unstructured data
  • Experience writing production quality code in one of Python, Go, or C++
  • Comfortable with testing as a first-class activity: unit testing, integration / end-to-end testing, and associated automations
  • Deliver and accept feedback with grace and courtesy
  • Comfortable working in a distributed environment across multiple time zones

Bonus Points For:
  • Experience developing code within a well-defined information architecture
  • Code optimization and performance assessment/profiling/testing
  • Experience with cloud databases such as Cassandra, Snowflake and Redshift, and data analytics frameworks such as Apache Spark
  • Experience developing design tools, tests, and/or test automation
  • Experience with testing frameworks, Jenkins or Bamboo in a CI/CD environment
  • Experience with Erlang, Haskell, Scala, or OCaml
  • Experience developing software for high-assurance, safety critical, or life critical domains
  • Familiarity with generative or formal software verification methods, such as Alloy, TLA+, or Agda
