The CrowdStrike Intelligence team is looking for an Engineer to work on our dedicated engineering team, building processing pipelines, information storage systems and presentation layers in support of our world-class team of analysts and researchers.
The collection, processing, and exploration of information at a large scale is at the core of the Intelligence mission at CrowdStrike. The Intelligence Automation team is responsible for prototyping, building and operating the systems that make up our Intelligence pipeline, and we'd like you to join us!
As a remote employee, you will not have direct access to all of your co-workers for the entire workday, so the ability to work unsupervised, communicate asynchronously, and take the initiative in maintaining lines of communication is important.
- Integrate into the existing Intelligence team and take requirements from Intelligence Analysts and Technical Analysts as internal customers.
- Autonomously develop requirements based on anything from vague mission statements to very detailed technical specifications (such as information gained by Software Reverse Engineering).
- Implement system software components in languages such as Go or Python, making choices about implementations yourself. Trading off rapid development versus scalability and performance will be a question you will often have to ask yourself.
- Produce presentation layers for gathered data or integrate into other existing databases and knowledge bases.
- Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Management Information Systems, or work-related discipline/ﬁeld from an accredited college or university. Equivalent ﬁeld experience considered.
- 4+ years experience preferably with direct experience as a developer.
- Intimate familiarity with Linux and running services on Linux.
- Familiarity with database systems such as MongoDB, ElasticSearch, SQL, Cassandra and their tradeoffs. At least 3+ years experience working with such database systems.
- Familiarity with docker and container orchestration systems.
- Ability to communicate technical detail into succinct and fact-based business terminology, both verbally and in writing.
- Customer-focused mindset, with demonstrated skill in managing expectations, providing proactive status updates, and delivering high-quality products.
- Ability to use independent judgment to make sound, justifiable decisions and take action to solve problems.
- Ability to plan, organize and prioritize work independently and meet deadlines.
- Ability to work on a geographically distributed and diverse team.
- Familiarity with the AWS cloud ecosystem (e.g. EC2, S3, VPC, ECS)
- Experience developing Web UIs, e.g. Single-Page-Applications (SPA).
- Experience offering scalable and well-documented HTTP APIs for customers.
- Work experience with malware analysis or general software reverse engineering.
- Experience from Information Security Capture-the-Flag (CTF) competitions or comparable offensive information security experience.
