About the Role

In a cloud software world, where 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 Staff Engineer to help lead our team of world class engineers. The individual in this role will shape and elevate our Knowledge Engines Platform team while working closely with platform customers. This role straddles the line of velocity and excellence.

What you will do:

As a Staff Engineer on the Knowledge Engine Platform team, you will:

  • Be a leader and mentor for a team of strong engineers distributed between Singapore and India that collaborates closely with other, global teams.
  • Help define APIs, abstractions and roadaps that guarantee both short term availability and uptime of services and the longer term ability to expand functionality
  • Own and develop data-rich, consumer-grade, APIs showcasing the breadth of Abnormal’s knowledge, compiled from many different sources, about users, IP addresses, applications and more, designed to track the normal patterns as well as those which might indicate something abnormal or risky is going on.
  • Define and support the SLAs for these APIs, enabling the building of Abnormal’s world class real time detection systems on top of them.
  • Obsessively partner with our customers to gather their feedback and quickly iterate to improve our systems
  • Create a magical work environment with colleagues and memorable interview process for candidates

This is a leadership role on the team and you will be expected to contribute both code and guidance to the team: you will be accountable for delivering great solutions and simultaneously making the team around you better.
