We expect you to be psyched about learning new languages and platforms quickly, and passionate about finding the right solution for the job. We’re an agile team, so we’re definitely looking for solid generalists that are enthusiastic about taking on any task.

Come join us in building the future of cloud security.

What We Offer

We’ve built a lot, but our scale challenges will keep coming and we’re continuously improving how we can better handling data streams and making them useful to end-users. You’ll be directly influencing and building software that helps users understand their own systems through this data.

A cohesive Engineering team where software and infrastructure engineers work side-by-side as we release new code, resolve bottlenecks, and improve our reliability and scalability (DevOps!)

A team that is committed to continuous delivery practices, and continually learning as we grow.

What You’ll Do

  • Build front-end components that help our customers understand their own security posture
  • Leverage and improve back-end APIs that power our website
  • Spend more time coding and less time on deployment
  • We use Threat Stack to protect Threat Stack. We want you to use our product and be vocal about how we can improve it – if it works for you, it’s likely going to work for our customers

What We’re Looking For

  • Experience with web development using JavaScript
  • Experience with a programming language like Java or C++
  • Experience with server-side technologies
  • Someone that puts a value on their code quality and tests it

What Gets Us Extra Excited to Talk to You

At Threat Stack, we’re building a continuous monitoring platform specifically targeted at the challenges of cloud security for elastic infrastructure. Our platform gives our customers deep visibility into their systems’ behaviors and helps to identify potentially anomalous actions of users and processes. We process hundreds of thousands of events per second to enable companies of all sizes to mature their cloud security by bringing security and operations together.

Threat Stack is looking for self-driven technical analysts to join our virtual security operations center that sits on top of this platform, detecting and responding to live customer security incidents. In addition to triaging and investigating alerts, you will have the opportunity to perform hunting and operational risk analysis across the entire customer base, working with security teams both internally at Threat Stack and at our customers to deliver our Cloud SecOps Program.

A normal day on this team includes:

  • Triaging, investigating, and escalating alerts as they occur in customer environments.
  • When escalating to a customer, working with them to understand what happened and how to properly remediate the issue.
  • Using multiple sources of data including the Threat Stack application, external data feeds, threat intelligence, etc.
  • Sitting and working with our internal security and critical incident response teams to share knowledge, training, and best practices.
  • Working with our internal product and engineering teams to provide product feedback.

Common technical skills on this team (one or more, unlikely all):

  • Regular experience using or administering a Linux distribution. You feel comfortable on the command line.
  • You’ve used data ingestion and analysis tools before, are comfortable writing queries in SQL or Splunk-esque tools, and enjoy sifting through data for needles.
  • Understanding of the various AWS services, how they work, and their security. You feel comfortable spinning up and configuring EC2 instances.
  • Coding ability ranges from the ability to script basic tasks all the way up through writing complete software in compiled languages.

Those who thrive on this team have:

  • No ego and are generally positive.
  • An intellectual curiosity for how attackers think and act, and how complex and modern cloud-based systems are built.
  • A customer-oriented mindset that drives your problem-solving.
  • An ability to multitask and prioritize your work without constant oversight.
  • A professional and articulate communication style, both written and verbal.

Reasons you’re not a fit for this team:

  • You need established policies and detailed procedures to drive all of your decisions. We think there’s a difference between “process oriented” and “runbook robot”.
  • You are more interested in offensive work, joining a red team, or penetration testing. There are better and more interesting ways to start that career.
  • You are just looking for a more interesting way to punch a clock. Everyone on this team has conviction for what we’re doing, so you’ll stick out like a sore thumb.
