About You

The Opportunity

In a cloud software world, who you are and what you have access to determines the risk associated with your accounts being compromised, Abnormal Security aims to build a comprehensive tool to understand the employees of our customers, and aid security professionals in assessing the risks and threats impacting their employee base. Help us build a new layer of protection that will give enterprises the same level of security for their cloud offerings as Abnormal Security’s industry leading products do in the email security space.

We’re looking to add a Backend Engineer to our team of world class engineers. The individual in this role will shape and elevate our Notable Events team while working closely within the Behavioral Security Products division. This role straddles the line of velocity and excellence.

As a Backend Engineer of the Notable Events team, you will:

  • Build and maintain high-throughput, low-latency systems that process 100s of millions of events per day to enable detection to identify notable events
  • Enhance our frameworks for improving detection efficiency and effectiveness
  • Provide operational support to maintain a high level of system uptime and performance
  • Create a magical work environment with colleagues and memorable interview process for candidates

You are someone who wants to make an impact. You are passionate about solving customer problems and have built up a base of skills in backend and distributed systems development to do so. You want to apply those skills on a problem that leaves the world in a better place.

We are a scrappy team: we are building a new product from scratch - this means you should be comfortable with a level of uncertainty beyond what you’d find at a more mature company or even a more mature team at Abnormal. Not every project will come with a well defined PRD - that’s expected and we expect this engineer to go dig in and figure out what to do. This also means occasionally we’ll ask you to do things that may not strictly fit the role of a “backend engineer” - it might mean jumping on a customer call, or digging in to help fix a frontend bug.

We are also not only a remote team, but a very distributed team, as such you will need to have excellent communication skills across both verbal and written mediums. You will need to be just as comfortable on a zoom call as writing a 1 pager project proposal to be shared across the team for technical feedback.

In this job, you will bring these skills

Skills/Experience - Required:

  • Experience working with building and operating distributed systems and services
  • 3-5 Years of overall software engineering experience
  • Experience with Python

Skills - Nice to have:

  • 2+ years Golang

Tech Stack:

  • Language: Python, Golang
  • Platform: AWS
  • Framework: Django, Spark
  • Storage / Data Pipelines: Postgres, Redis, ElasticSearch, Kafka, Parquet

Role Responsibilities

  • Build and maintain high-throughput, low-latency systems that process 100s of millions of events per day to enable detection to identify notable events
  • Enhance our frameworks for improving detection efficiency and effectiveness
  • Provide operational support to maintain a high level of system uptime and performance
  • Create a magical work environment with colleagues and memorable interview process for candidates
