About the Role

Abnormal Security is looking for a Staff Software Engineer to drive large initiatives for our core R&D divisions. Our team builds the reusable components such as Account Management, Notifications and Feature Flags to enable other teams to rapidly develop their applications.

At Abnormal, we keep our customers—ranging from Global 2000 organizations to small businesses—safe from complex and cutting edge attacks that have the potential to cause financial loss and disrupt business operations. Our novel approach to email security, account takeover detection, and other use cases has resulted in us becoming one of the fastest-growing security companies of all time, with 15+% of the Fortune 500 in our customer base. As we conquer the email security space, expansion of our product portfolio is the next big step for Abnormal & our team plays a key role in that mission.

In order to deliver on our roadmap, you will work closely with engineering & product leaders across the R&D organization, chart the roadmap for our division & be accountable for the technical excellence of our system. As a key leader, you will have a meaningful impact on the growth of our product portfolio and business success, while laying the foundations for continued scalable and robust product development at Abnormal.

What you will do

  • Be a leader and mentor for a team of strong engineers.
  • 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 complex features to empower Abnormal’s suite of cybersecurity products, with clear interfaces that make them easy to use.
  • Define and support the SLAs for these features, enabling the building of Abnormal’s world class real time detection systems on top of them.
  • Partner with our internal & External 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.
