About the Role

As a Senior Developer in the Analytics space, you’ll work on the team that focusses on building the systems that allow for the storage and analysis of big data.  This telemetry data is collected from customers by leveraging endpoint, network, and cloud data sources both inside and outside our customers’ networks.  Our team then builds products that allows our customers as well as our own employees to make business intelligence queries against this large set of data, to better understand their security posture.

Our existing stack includes both custom built and open source components written in Java and Go, deployed within Amazon Web Services.  Some open source components we use include Metabase, Postgres, Apache Kafka, HazelCast, various open-source columnar databases, as well as custom application servers leveraging frameworks like Quarkus, Apache Samza, Apache Calcite, and Go.

While innovation is the focus, some of these ideas do make it into our products.
