Software Engineer (Backend APIs, Data Engineering) - Duo Security

| Austin

Duo Security, now a part of Cisco, is the top tier provider of Trusted Access security and multi-factor authentication delivered through the cloud.

Duo’s mission is to make security simple for everyone. We were born from a hacker ethos and a desire to make the Internet a secure place. We believe in empowering people to follow their passions inside and outside of the office and enable every employee to bring their whole self to work.

 

What You Will Do

 

Our team is our secret weapon. We own the spectrum from artists to analysts, low-key to high energy, and bring together a diversity of skill sets, experiences, and perspectives to tackle what we consider to be the world's most pressing geopolitical challenge — redefining the security industry as we know it. Together we build solutions that are easy, effective, honest, and enduring. And that’s why we are the most loved and trusted company in security.

 

Who You Will Work With

 

In a Zero Trust Architecture, the Trust Engine is a key component that assesses the risk of individual requests. On Duo’s Trust Engine team, we work with data scientists to translate machine learning research into Trust Engine features that assist our customers to improve their security posture.

You are an engineer who loves to learn and adapt quickly. You enjoy working as a member of a team but can also drive tasks to resolution on your own. You are passionate about building secure software. You continually find opportunities to improve your technical and professional skills. You are not afraid to take on complex issues, take the initiative to solve problems, communicate solutions, or raise issues.

 

Do you want to work closely with a pragmatic and diverse group of data scientists, engineers, and security researchers in Duo’s industry-leading R&D team?

 

 

Who You Are

 

Are you passionate about building usable and scalable machine learning product features for the world’s most loved security product, as we continue on our drive to democratize security?

If yes, then you might be a good fit for this role.

 

 

What you'll do…

 

  • Build services that power machine learning models and deliver insights back to customers.

  • Design APIs to translate Duo activity into Trust Engine predictions and insights.

  • Partner with data engineers and data scientists to deliver machine learning product features to millions of users across 21,000+ Duo customers.

  • Improve production data pipelines to support machine learning product goals.

  • Provide and receive technical mentorship via code reviews, written guides, generous learning budget and other professional development activities.

 

You should have...

 

  • Experience on a customer facing engineering projects.

  • Developed server-side web applications, REST APIs, and/or microservices.

  • Programming skills in PHP / Ruby / Node.js (We use Python)

  • The ability to clearly communicate your ideas within and across teams.

  • A commitment to quality and an eye for details.

  • The agility to work in a high-growth tech organization.

 

Even better if you have...

 

  • Worked with data pipelines or distributed message queues.

  • Familiarity with asynchronous programming patterns as in Python’s asyncio, Twisted, Node, .NET.

  • Experience running deployments at scale in AWS or similar IaaS services.

  • A passion for security and privacy (especially Zero Trust).

  • Partnered with data science teams in an engineering capacity in the past.

  • Examples of tackling problems revolving around large data sets.

  • A desire to join a company culture of patience, openness, and learning. Employees love Duo.

  • An ability to positively impact users Customers love Duo.

 

This job may not be for you if…

 

  • You’re more interested in developing ML models or ML infrastructure than you are in surfacing ML results in the product to the customer. If so, keep an eye out for data science roles on our team.

Why Cisco

 

 

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference powering an inclusive future for all.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we’re “old” (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but we’re also a software company. And a security company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do – you can’t put us in a box!

But “Digital Transformation” is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)

Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, give our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, bold steps, and take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a dedication to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

 

So, you have colorful hair? Don’t care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That’s cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!

An Insider's view of Duo Security

How does your team reward individual success?

It can be as quick as some karma in Slack. We do team appreciations at the start of team meetings and Cisco has connected recognition which allows individuals to recognize the great work someone has done along with a monetary award, from $25 on up! We also celebrate life with team members, for example throwing a virtual baby shower!

Hector

Senior Engineering Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our cross-functional team of data scientists, software engineers, and designers, as well as product and security experts is building an intuitive adaptive authentication system. We’re moving past basic rule-based approaches to create a dynamic experience that people will love for keeping them secure while staying unobtrusive.

Brian

Head of Data Science and Engineering

What are some things you learned at the company?

Early on, I thought that success in the security industry was attributed solely to people's ideas or intellect. Since then, I've learned that the most important thing to have in any industry is empathy. Without empathy, you can't build a product that people will love or a place that people will want to work. Empathy is a foundation for success.

Olabode

Senior Data Scientist

What is your vision for the company?

My overall vision is to provide mechanisms for the business to build simple, safe and secure products that our customers and partners intrinsically trust. It is my belief that when we empower our teams and stakeholders to creatively work together instead of falling on process and procedure for the sake of it, our creativity opens to new heights.

Amanda

Head of Product Security

What makes someone successful on your team?

Success for us is taking the road less traveled to achieve better results, meaning we look for teammates who bring perspectives from all walks of life and who are not afraid to use their voice. We believe this combination results in good outcomes because we end up paving our path to success with a diversity of thought.
