Role Overview

We are looking for a highly motivated software engineer to work in a fast-paced, startup-like environment to build analytic solutions that advance the state-of-the-art in network defense.  Our goal is to automatically detect and respond to a variety of threat actors and help predict what they might do next.  You will use the latest big data platforms and technologies (e.g. AWS/GCP/Azure, Spark, Kafka, Flink, Docker, Kubernetes) to rapidly deploy new algorithms and applications on the next generation Secureworks platform and work with a seasoned, cross-functional team of software engineers, data scientists, and security experts.

The ideal candidate will have a strong software development background with an emphasis on distributed systems and some familiarity with data science or machine learning, though personal expertise is not required.  This role requires a software developer that can take ideas from concept to reality and work well within an entrepreneurial and collaborative environment.


  • Design, develop, test, deploy, maintain, and improve software applications as secure, scalable, performant, and fault-tolerant solutions across a multi-cloud architecture.
  • Collaborate with data scientists and security researchers to productize new methods of extracting information from logs and APIs and detecting security incidents.
  • Work effectively on a geographically distributed team to deliver high quality software against aggressive schedules.  


  • BS in Computer Science, related technical field, or equivalent experience.
  • 2-5 years of relevant software development experience using object oriented and functional programming paradigms.
  • Proficiency with multiple programming languages including but not limited to: Scala, Python, Go.
  • Experience with Amazon AWS, Google GCP, or Microsoft Azure.
  • Experience developing security- or analytically-focused applications using big data platforms (e.g. Spark, AWS EMR/Batch, GCP Dataproc/Dataflow, Azure HDInsight), stream-processing systems (e.g. Kafka, Flink, AWS Kinesis, Google Pub/Sub, Azure Event Hubs), or serverless architectures (e.g. AWS Lambda, GCP/Azure Functions).
  • Great technical communicator with both technical and non technical peers.
  • Passionate about well-crafted code and a strong desire to learn.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Certified as AWS Solutions Architect, GCP Cloud Architect, or MCSE in Azure Cloud Platform and Infrastructure.
  • Experience with AWS CloudTrail/CloudWatch, GCP Cloud Audit Logging/Cloud Monitoring, Azure Log Analytics/Monitor, or Microsoft Graph Security API.
  • Familiarity with data science techniques or machine learning.
  • Familiarity with packet captures, network flows, log data, malware analysis, etc.
  • Prior experience developing software in an entrepreneurial environment.
