Job Description

Our client is building a third-generation cybersecurity platform which uses deep learning and other advanced ML algorithms to help enterprise security teams proactively avoid cyber breaches.

Our product is built around data, lots of it. This is a platform that is capable of ingesting all forms of data from an enterprise. This includes data from traffic, software stack, enterprise policies, log data from infrastructure, event data from security controls among several others. This provides us with an incredibly rich dataset to transform, analyze and convert into prioritized actionable risk information.

We use our expertise in multiple disciplines from AI, machine learning, statistics and probabilistic methods to transform data into actionable intelligence for our customers. 

As a Data Lead Architect, you will be expected to take ownership of and build a complex, scalable data storage and processing pipeline. You will need to demonstrate strong leadership and communication skills to successfully execute on the engineering priorities in an agile, high-velocity development environment. We are attracted to people who are curious, quick-learners, self-driven and take immense pride in their work.

Our client's workloads are varied and specialized. Our technology and architecture must adapt to the diverse needs of our data applications. The architectures we build should be able to scale to peta-bytes of data serving near real-time as well as massive batch jobs. AI is at the core of our product and we incorporate the latest advances in machine learning and data science such as graph based deep learning on enterprise networks. This requires having a breadth and depth of knowledge of database technologies:

  • Relational databases such as PostgreSQL
  • Key-Value and document store NoSQL databases such as MongoDB, Cassandra
  • Search engine database such as ElasticSearch
  • Time-series databases such as InfluxDB, Druid, Prometheus.
  • In-memory databases
  • Distributed data storage and data warehousing concepts and technologies
  • Cloud-computing based database and storage services on various cloud providers
  • Security best practices and design principles

In addition to the core competency of building database and storage architectures, expertise in the following competencies are highly desired:

  • Web services architectures
  • Restful APIs
  • Containerized applications and scalable micro-services
  • CI/CD

Who We Are

We build a breach risk dashboard for cybersecurity. Think of us as preventative healthcare for enterprise networks whose vitals we continuously discover, monitor and quantify. Specifically, we model the risk carried by hundreds of attack vectors (e.g. likelihood of breach from phishing), contextualize them to physical assets in the enterprise (e.g. firewalls, laptops, etc.), and prioritize these assets by their relative impact of breach (e.g. active directory servers are more important than display devices). The outcome is a clickable, searchable, and human readable risk dashboard that is relevant, engaging and easy on the eyes.

Employee life at our client is collaborative and fast-paced. We encourage the willingness to experiment and learn, a can-do attitude, ownership, excellence and commitment. We offer an environment of growth & opportunity by providing guidance and candid feedback. We support each other at every step of the way. As employees, we consider ourselves as co-owners of the business as we take our mission seriously. We work hard, take great pride in our work, and have loads of fun along the way!

Benefits & Perks, Happiness

Our Employees' health and well-being is very important to us, and we truly believe that everyday choices that we make can help us live healthier and happier lives, both at work and at home. We offer rich health benefits and wellness plans which are designed to enhance the overall quality of life of our team members and their loved ones.

We hang out together and enjoy playing pool, beer bashes, celebrating our personal & professional milestones, team lunches together multiple times a week are just part of our life.
