At White Ops, we are all about keeping it human. We are the global leader in bot mitigation. We protect more than 200 enterprises—including the largest internet platforms—from sophisticated bots by verifying the humanity of nearly one trillion online interactions every week. The most sophisticated bots look and act like humans when they click on ads, visit websites, fill out forms, take over accounts, and commit payment fraud. We stop them.

Founded in 2012 in a Brooklyn sci-fi bookstore, our Bot Mitigation Platform protects enterprises from the sophisticated bots that threaten them. It’s an ongoing war that we fight passionately every day. Join our mission to stop bots, disrupt the economics of cyber crime, and keep it human.

The Data Engineering  team is responsible for the primary organs and arteries of our system. The team’s mission is to consistently deliver a world-class data platform that enables our security researchers, threat intel analysts, and data scientists to quickly and reliably detect malicious non-human activity. You will be solving a wide range of problems from finding more efficient ways to research sophisticated botnets to delivering only the most critical and impactful insights to our customers as fast as possible so they can take action.  

By joining the Data Platform team at White Ops, you will gain a deep understanding of how our products and services work all the way from signal collection to customer reports and are able to make a major impact on cleaning up the internet. You will be responsible for the evolution of a platform that will grow in scale by 100x (current volume is over 1 PB) to 1000x, ensure that our data can never be used for ill by anyone (e.g. privacy and security are at the core of the system design), and incorporate the latest ML and fraud research techniques.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
