  • Design and build highly reliable code that never impacts the end-user experience

  • Build secure-by-design hardened software that must withstand real-world attacks, while processing untrusted data and communicating with a backend over the internet

Who you are

  • Strong track record in working on security software on Linux using eBPF, kernel modules and audit frameworks.

  • Experience with building and maintaining enterprise grade software with support for multiple distributions of Linux.

  • Prior work on at least one large native application deployed to tens of thousands of end-users

  • Experience debugging, profiling, and optimizing the performance of low-level system software

  • Experience building endpoint security products, such as DLP or EDR applications

  • Proficient in designing and implementing application architecture

  • Experience with agile development and SCRUM

  • Proven ability to collaborate with a distributed cross-functional team

  • Possess verbal and written communication skills in English

  • Availability to frequently communicate with a distributed engineering team in Central European and US Eastern time zones

What you can count on

  • Competitive salary and stock options

  • Excellent benefits such as private health insurance.

  • Flexible time off (paid)

  • Career advancement opportunities
