About the Role:

CrowdStrike’s Data Science team is expanding -- we are at the exciting intersection of Machine Learning, Big Data, and Security and are looking to add a senior data scientist specializing in machine learning to our growing team. You will have the opportunity to apply your coding, mathematical and scientific research skills to the bleeding edge of security technology. You’ll be able to leverage large-scale rich data to meaningfully improve our supervised learning models and refine our identification of malicious computer software and behavioral threats. CrowdStrike’s cybersecurity data is one-of-a-kind: we process over 500 billion behavioral events per day and have over 2000 terabytes of malware samples in our research repository. We are a diverse and multidisciplinary team, and you’ll have the chance to broaden your horizons by working jointly with a team of Big Data, Machine Learning, and Security domain experts on hard and impactful problems.

Remote U.S. role within a reasonable commuting distance to one of the following offices: Sunnyvale, CA; Irvine, CA; Austin, TX; Seattle, WA; Kirkland, WA; St. Louis, MO; Boston, MA; New York City, NY.

What You’ll Need:

  • Undergraduate or post-graduate degree in a STEM field

  • 2-4 Years of post-undergraduate experience in data science, machine learning, or any field employing computational science or data driven analyses

  • Programming experience in Python, Rust, R, MatLab or Scala to match (preference in that order)

 You will…

  • Mine large scale and high dimensional data, identify patterns, and visualize trends

  • Create predictive models using supervised learning techniques to detect and stop the most sophisticated threats

  • Innovate new semi-supervised and online learning techniques to enhance our threat detection capabilities and reduce nuisance false positives for our customers.

  • Work closely with domain experts to improve our raw data and to derive more value from data collected

  • Hone your ability to balance detail-oriented research with goal-oriented business objectives

  • Implement and experiment with new algorithms and methodologies to help improve our machine learning models

  • Automate and visualize analyses, results and processes in our machine learning pipeline

You are…

  • Passionate about cybersecurity, with a firm understanding of the problem space or passionate about applying your machine learning skillset to new domain areas such as cybersecurity

  • Versed in utilizing Machine Learning techniques and familiar with the standard algorithms, their trade-offs, their usage, and how to tune them

  • Have experience working on very large data sets of sparse high dimensional data and experience in pre-processing and analyzing such data to gain actionable insights

  • An independent self-starter who likes to take ownership and independently seeks out new challenges

  • Thirsty for knowledge and do not hesitate to step outside of your comfort zone to learn new technologies, algorithms and concepts

  • Comfortable to dive into a Python codebase, including experience with unit testing and the python packaging ecosystem

  • Comfortable and experienced working in a Linux environment in the AWS cloud

  • Analytically minded: never afraid to drill down into a data-set, or debug-deeper into an unfamiliar codebase

An Insider's view of CrowdStrike

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I was truly blown away by how great CrowdStrike’s culture is. We’re incredibly collaborative and everyone genuinely likes to spend time with one another. This is just one of the reasons that really drew me to grow my career here!

Vince

Corporate Sales Manager

What does your typical day look like?

A Corporate Account Executive is essentially a relationship manager between any organization that we're working with and CrowdStrike. We're strategic and we really dig into the current security environment of a company: finding out what their pain points are, finding out what their goals are, and then positioning a solution!

Theo

Corporate Account Executive

What are some things you learned at the company?

Being in a role that works with multiple departments within CrowdStrike, as well as, with others outside of the company, I have learned the importance of clear communication & collaboration skills through exposure to different situations and learning from those around me. I am excited to see how these skills grow as I develop in my career.

Marit

Account Manager, Renewals - Team Lead

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

My leadership style is to be supportive and a little bit experimental. We don't try to cookie cut our reps. We want everyone to find out what they are good at and then coach to those strengths, cover the weaknesses and help everyone find their own way to be successful.

Jack

Senior Director, Corporate Sales

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

CrowdStrike has provided endless opportunities for my professional growth. Not only has the organization provided the support to advance my career internally, but they also prepare you for success with any future endeavors outside of the CrowdStrike organization!

Michelle

SMB Account Executive
