Role Overview

RedCloak sensor is a vital part of our TDR product and it’s a light agent running on client endpoints in order to detect malicious behavior and feed data into the cloud for further threat analysis. With the help of threat intelligence gathered by our world class security researchers and powered by amazing threat analytics platform we are able to detect threats and secure our clients infrastructure.

We are looking for  Senior Software Engineer with good knowledge of Linux systems to drive the next-generation endpoint capabilities of our new product offerings, which you can explore here. You will work in a fast-paced, startup-like environment with an experienced, cross-functional team of software engineers, data scientists, and security experts to develop our next generation endpoint sensor that seamlessly integrates with our cloud-native security analytics platform.  If you love computer security and digging into complex engineering challenges, then we want your help securing human progress!

The ideal candidate will have a computer science background with an emphasis on operating systems and computer security.  Your focus will be on the Linux, Windows or Mac agent, but many features cut across OS subsystems such as collecting telemetry from processes, networking, and file systems. Your code will be used in a lean agent that delivers security by building on proven, pre-existing mechanisms inside the Linux operating systems in order to minimize its footprint.

The agent has shared components across multiple platforms, so experience with Windows based system development is also a plus. We expect most will have extensive experience with C/C++, but experience or interest with Golang is a strong plus and will be heavily utilized.  

Responsibilities

  • Own feature development for our Linux sensor from design to delivery with high concurrency and reliability requirements and low/no impact to end users 
  • Participate in technical discussions around architecture, strategy, and development of next generation threat detection and response capabilities
  • Design and implement software with cross platform deliverables (Linux, macOS, Windows)
  • Triage, reproduce, debug, and fix issues identified in the product
  • Build tools to support team efficiency and contribute to test automation
  • Ensure high standards are being followed when it comes to design, coding quality, along with unit and component testing
  • Work effectively on a geographically distributed team to deliver high quality software against aggressive schedules  

Minimum Requirements

  • Minimum of 2 years software development using C/C++
  • Minimum of 1 year systems level or kernel development
  • Must have experience in strong computer networking fundamentals

Preferred Experience

  • Experience with Golang
  • Experience with container technology
  • Experience with large scale data analysis pipelines, particularly the impact endpoint sensors have on downstream architecture and applications
