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:

CrowdStrike is seeking a backend software engineer who wants to grow at scale, is comfortable with being technically stretched, and would like to positively impact our mission to stop breaches. Your experience working with large-scale distributed systems will be applied across a range of services (negotiating TLS, balancing network connections, managing virtual sessions, distributing dynamic content, managing datastreams).

As part of the team, you will have a hand in designing our proprietary Cloud Protocol and work closely with Falcon Sensor teams for each of the platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android). Your details-oriented mindset and performance focus will allow CrowdStrike to scale into the future. Solid experience with large-scale distributed systems, network protocols, performance optimization, open source tools and libraries and multi-tenant architecture is highly desirable but not required.

What You'll Need:
  • Degree in Computer Science (or commensurate experience in data structures/algorithms/distributed systems).
  • The ability to scale backend systems - sharding, partitioning, scaling horizontally are second nature to you.
  • The ability to troubleshoot and pinpoint system failures across a pipeline of services.
  • The desire to ship code and the love of seeing your bits run in production.
  • Deep understanding of distributed systems and scalability challenges, multi-threading, concurrency, and parallel processing technologies.


What You'll Bring:
  • Team player skills - we embrace collaborating as a team as much as possible
  • A thorough understanding of engineering best practices from appropriate testing paradigms to effective peer code reviews and resilient architecture.
  • The ability to thrive in a fast paced, test-driven, collaborative and iterative programming environment.
  • The skills to meet your commitments on time and produce high quality software that is unit tested, code reviewed, and checked in regularly for continuous integration.
  • Ability to brainstorm, define, and build collaboratively with members across multiple teams.
  • Experience with shipping high quality software in a cloud environments
  • Solid grounding in the technology of at least one cloud environment (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform)
  • Solid design and problem solving skills with demonstrated passion for engineering excellence, quality, security and performance
  • Strong cross-group collaboration and interpersonal communication skills working with a variety of roles; including engineering, product management, support and sales engineering


Bonus Points:
  • Industry experience in implementing web servers and load balancers
  • Authored and lead successful open source libraries and projects
  • Contributions to the open source community (GitHub, Stack Overflow, blogging)
  • Existing exposure to Go, Scala, AWS, Cassandra, Kafka, Elasticsearch...
  • Prior experience in the cybersecurity or intelligence fields
