About You:

You have a passion for software engineering, network software, and building scalable distributed systems. You enjoy working with network protocols, sockets programming, network traffic reporting, policy enforcement, and working with authorization and authentication protocols like OAuth2, OpenID Connect, and SAML.


As a Software Engineer for Platforms, you will get a chance to develop the mission-critical distributed subsystem in a rapidly scaling platform that handles millions of requests and massive amounts of events and other data. It is real-time, scalable, and highly available, and is the source of data for security monitoring, alerting, access control, and data visualization. You understand the importance of data collected from every application and component in a software-defined business environment - web, mobile, server, infrastructure, hardware - in enabling the most advanced and effective security controls and insights for business and IT decision-making.

  • Experience with networking and socket programming
  • Experience with OS kernel network subsystems in Linux and/or Windows
  • Strong foundation in a programming language such as Go, C/C++, data structures, algorithms, and a strong understanding of threads, synchronization, and concurrent programming
