Senior Staff Software Engineer (Remote US)

Mandiant - Santa Clara, CA

Company Description

Since 2004, Mandiant has been a trusted partner to security-conscious organizations. Effective security is based on the right combination of expertise, intelligence, and adaptive technology, and the Mandiant Advantage SaaS platform scales decades of frontline experience and industry-leading threat intelligence to deliver a range of dynamic cyber defense solutions. Mandiant’s approach helps organizations develop more effective and efficient cyber security programs and instills confidence in their readiness to defend against and respond to cyber threats.

Job Description

What You'll Do:

If you dream of a job working in a field where all the hard problems are solved and you get to re-use previous research to get your job done, you need not apply. If, however, you are someone who wants to tackle problems that truly are on the cutting edge, then we encourage you to keep reading.

Data Science is an emerging field within cyber security. Mandiant, given its deep expertise and comprehensive view on the advanced threat landscape, is uniquely positioned to enable data scientists to have major impact within our industry, company, and across our customer base. Detecting security breaches using machine learning and data analytics is an unsolved problem (this is not handwriting recognition folks) and has huge potential.

If you are someone who wants to be on the cutting edge of a high profile industry, who wants to make an impact by pushing both fields of data science and cyber security forward, you may be the perfect candidate to help us on our mission.

  • Contribute to the evolution of coding and design practices within the organization.

  • Review code base commits and contribute to the growth of team members.


Minimum Requirements:

  • Ability to work in an iterative, agile development environment.

  • Extensive experience in architecting reliable distributed systems.
