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. 

About the Role

CrowdStrike is expanding our new CrowdStrike Store platform.  We are looking for a new team member to join as a Partner Engineer and help us evaluate potential new application partners and guide engineering level architecture and implementation discussions. This role would appeal to someone with a strong technical background, that enjoys working with developers in defining and guiding product development. You enjoy coding but prefer to spend the majority of your day engaging in discussion and focusing on projects that enable productivity of other engineers.

Our goal for the CrowdStrike Store is to create a curated store of apps built by third parties, leveraging the data, infrastructure and services provided by the CrowdStrike Falcon Platform. To achieve that goal we are building an organization wide infrastructure to support the CrowdStrike Store.  This role will be critical to help us develop a scalable evaluation and on-boarding partner process for our CrowdStrike Store platform. 

  • PROCESS: FOR UNDERSTANDING
  • REPEATABILITY: FOR SCALABILITY
  • AUTOMATE: FOR EFFICIENCY

This role will report to the Sr. Manager of Cloud Engineering and will have a virtual dotted-line to the VP,CrowdStrike Store, serving as a crucial member of the virtual CrowdStrike Store team. As a member of the team you will help bring potential CrowdStrike Store partners through the evaluation process to launch funnel by reviewing new use cases and application partners. 

Once we have identified that a partner has a valid use case and capable technology, this role will provide guidance and architectural oversight to ensure partner applications are conforming to best practices and making the most effective use of our platform. This requires a very strong understanding of how external users can make use of APIs and event driven systems. Through this process you will act as an advocate for CrowdStrike’s developer ecosystem and be a key contributor to influencing roadmap direction for the platform and product engineering teams. 

As we expand the platform to offer more features and services, this role will evolve and not only help on-board new partners but help existing partner innovate and extend their application. Candidates must be comfortable in the role of architecture, engineer and technical partner engagement. You will work very closely with the Store Engineering, Business Development & Product Management teams to help prioritize, on-board and enable partners.

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

SDR Manager

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.
