About The Role

Enterprises of all sizes trust Abnormal Security’s cloud products to stop cybercrime. These products are data intensive SaaS applications that depend on reliable, scalable, and secure access to data. This is where our Data Platform team fits in, offering scalable storage systems (Postgresql, OpenSearch, Redis, Kafka, RocksDB), as well as providing a reliable platform (Databricks, Spark, AWS/Azure) for moving and processing data that feeds the company’s powerful ML models to detect and prevent cyberattacks.  

Abnormal Security is looking for a Staff Software Engineer to spearhead the key initiatives owned by the Data Platform team. The individual in this role will have the opportunity to mentor a small team of high-caliber engineers, define and build the roadmap to unlock the next generation data platform, and execute on ambitious and challenging technical projects to deliver value.

  • Have a track record of building data intensive applications that directly or implicitly contribute to the company’s business goals.
  • Can effectively earn trust and credibility from a diverse set of Engineering, Product, and Design team members.

What You Will Do 

  • Shape the Data Platform architecture and roadmap of Abnormal Security to empower and scale the growing list of AI / ML applications across the company.
  • Deep dive into the product workflows and recommend correct trade offs for the transition.
  • Act as the technical lead of the team. Own their quarterly roadmap, to set, execute and deliver.

Must Have 

  • 5+ years experience in building platforms, tools, and systems to serve the needs of engineering teams, empower them to ship with velocity and reliability.
  • Experience in building data intensive, distributed systems that are complex and high scale as a back-end engineer. This is not a Data Engineering role. 
  • Proven track record of being a Change Agent, defining and driving engineering initiatives that involve cross-team collaboration.
  • Experience with or interested in Abnormal Security Tech Stack: Python, Golang, Terraform / Terragrunt, Postgresql, Kafka, Redis, OpenSearch, AWS/Azure, Kubernetes.

Nice to Have 

  • Experience in operating complex AI / ML applications at scale.
  • Knowledge and/or experience building out platform offerings to support other engineering teams.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Salaries for the engineering jobs on our site range from $100K-$200K. On average, senior engineer positions on our EchoJobs are about $160K.
  • The EchoJobs positions have been sourced and vetted from the top companies to work for in the US as a software engineer, including LinkedIn and other reputable job sites. We also have syndicated jobs from companies that have just raised funding, as well as those that have great unique products and culture. From all of these sources, our founder, Morgan, has also resourced the company's authenticity in terms of their website, public appearance, and more.
  • Yes, our users asked us for just this, so now our search filters allow you to search for your top jobs via location, as well as by onsite, remote, or both. Approximately 30% of our jobs are remote, so you’ve got the best options for you!
  • We have not yet implemented this option, but are considering doing so in the future. For the moment, you would need to cancel your subscription, and resubscribe when you wanted to come back.
  • We add new jobs to EchoJobs every day! We scan our sources for the newest jobs, verify them, and post them to EchoJobs within minutes. We add about 2,000-3,000 new jobs for you each day!
  • From starting your job search to getting hired, the entire job search process can take us software engineers anywhere between 3-6 months. However, at EchoJobs, we’re striving to shorten this duration by finding the best, newest jobs for you, so you can do less job searching, and more applying.
  • We’d recommend checking EchoJobs daily, as we add new jobs to the site each day. Additionally, if you got a chance to read our previous email on “what makes EchoJobs different from any other job search tools,” we also recommended that you set a job alert based on your job filters, so if you get emails on those new jobs, you could be checking more than once per day.
  • If you decide to continue with us after the 1-month trial, we definitely recommend this, as we all know it usually takes 3-6 months to find a quality job as a software engineer these days. So to best support you, we just adjusted our membership options at EchoJobs to monthly, 3 months, or 12 months (this option is more for passive job seekers looking a little bit for the future if they want to come back to work or make a job switch potentially. This lets you see what’s out there in case an even better fit job becomes available.)
  • EchoJobs is truly the only job site of its kind. We want to be THE spot for you to find the best job for you, and haven’t encountered any other company doing this. Other job sites are in niches besides software engineering or focus on a small portion of engineering jobs (like a specific coding language). In the words of Morgan, our founder, “I think what makes EchoJobs different is the amount of jobs, frequency that we add new jobs (we add 2,000-3,000 new jobs daily!), and the powerful search engines to find exactly the job you want more easily and efficiently. We can provide you with the most jobs that are vetted by us, we’ll continually find more new jobs for you, and we make it easier for you to apply and get hired.
