#WeAreCrowdStrike and our mission is to stop breaches. As a global leader in cybersecurity, our team changed the game. Since our inception, our market leading cloud-native platform has offered unparalleled protection against the most sophisticated cyberattacks. We work on large scale distributed systems, processing over 1 trillion events a day with a petabyte of RAM deployed in our Cassandra clusters - and this traffic is growing daily. We’re looking for people with limitless passion, a relentless focus on innovation and a fanatical commitment to developing and shaping our cybersecurity platform. Consistently recognized as a top workplace, CrowdStrike is committed to cultivating an inclusive, remote-first culture that offers people the autonomy and flexibility to balance the needs of work and life while taking their career to the next level.

About the Role:

Crowdstrike’s Proactive Security Posture Management (PSPM) is a brand new and a key product area for CrowdStrike. We’re extending CrowdStrike’s mission of “stopping breaches” into the next level of sophistication and visibility by ingesting massive amounts of data and applying various techniques and algorithms (including Machine Learning) to provide visibility that was not seen before and also enable automation to a new level in the industry. In this role you will use the latest technologies for building backend services that will ingest data, perform calculations and provide remediation tooling and automation. The language the team uses is GoLang for building microservices and you’ll use various database systems.


We’re a highly collaborative, friendly, inclusive and diverse group that prizes collaboration over competition. We provide opportunities to learn new skills, mentor fellow engineers, and contribute to the direction of both the team and the products for which we’re responsible. We work in a distributed, remote-first, high-trust environment where you manage your own time and have the flexibility to balance your work and personal life. Our ideal candidate will be responsible for taking full ownership of the delivery of our products, driving the technical aspects, helping the team to define the architecture and coordinating with stakeholders in terms of scope and priorities. As a remote employee, you connect to your co-workers mostly via Slack and Zoom.

What You'll Need:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related field or equivalent work experience       

  • 7+  years of production-level experience in building, delivering, and maintaining systems at scale (millions of data points)

  • Ability to design scalable and resilient microservice-based architectures, including clean REST APIs and streaming communication channels

  • Strong programming skills – Python or Java, Scala, C#, or Golang

  • Deep understand of multithreading, concurrency, and parallel processing technologies

  • A thorough understanding of engineering best practices from appropriate testing paradigms to effective peer code reviews and resilient architecture

  • Cloud Infrastructure Knowledge:  AWS or GCP / Azure

  • Team player skills – we embrace collaborating as a team as much as possible        

Nice to Have:

  • Knowledge in graph databases and graph data structures    

  • Experience in defining ontologies and collaborating with multiple teams while doing so

  • Familiarity with event-driven architecture

  • Familiarity with Docker and Kubernetes based development and orchestration
