About CrowdStrike

At CrowdStrike we’re on a mission - to stop breaches. Our groundbreaking technology, services delivery, and intelligence gathering together with our innovations in machine learning and behavioral-based detection, allow our customers to not only defend themselves, but do so in a future-proof manner. We’ve earned numerous honors and top rankings for our technology, organization and people – clearly confirming our industry leadership and our special culture driving it. We also offer flexible work arrangements to help our people manage their personal and professional lives in a way that works for them. So if you’re ready to work on unrivaled technology where your desire to be part of a collaborative team is met with a laser-focused mission to stop breaches and protect people globally, let’s talk.

As the core research and development arm of the CrowdStrike Falcon product, the Strategic Research Initiatives (SRI) Team is at the forefront of cutting-edge research into security-related systems and techniques.  The team strives to deliver cross-platform features for mid to long-term, visionary projects that expand the capabilities of Falcon Sensor.  New EDR techniques and data sources, UEFI/Hypervisor capability, PnP and network stack visibility, containerization, scripting engine introspection, and emulation/sandboxing are just a few examples of SRI projects.  

Our Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) Team is all about finding unique, creative, and resourceful ways to extract data from the various platforms that the Falcon Sensor runs on, by using OS-provided callback technologies, clean, compatible & robust hooking techniques, and mandatory access control authorization and other system call filtering tools available in various platforms. Whether it`s by reverse engineering a new, unknown, ability to monitor certain system behaviors, or by creating an entirely new stack of components on top of a filtering mechanism, while also keeping up-to-date with OS platform improvements, there`s never a dull moment on this challenging team. We are eager to find those who want to move past traditional security approaches and are passionate about working with us to expand our next generation behavioral based malware detection platform.

An Insider's view of CrowdStrike

What's something quirky about your company?

Our mascot is a falcon so the SDR team puts falcon in front of activities - for example when we do team stretches when everyone needs to get up from their chair and take a break we call it Falcon Stretch

How does the company support your career growth?

CrowdStrike does an awesome job at promoting from within. I started as an SDR a little of a year ago and am now an SDR Manager! When departments are looking for new hires the SDR org is the first place they look for internal promotions.
