We’ve created a fantastic culture that our employees love and were recently named in the top 10 of Fortune Magazine’s “Great Place to Work” list.   We’re pretty proud of all that too.  We’re growing fast and are looking for some great people to join us.


Who We Need

Our Incubation Labs help to deliver new products that power our anti-malware technologies by using innovative technologies. We work side by side with other teams to ensure stability, security and usability of our products.

  • People who have experience with at least two of the following languages and have experience integrating with third party api’s. (python, ruby, bash, Go).
  • Production level experience using and debugging critical systems.
  • Experience in debugging REST API's and other HTTP services.
  • People who can automate deployment processes.
  • We need people who are creative, passionate about technology, and ready to help build something great.


What You'll Do

Our IncubationLabs work in close relation to researchers and developers. As a SRE, you will help guide them as they create new solutions.

We do a lot of work to empower our developers and researchers to safely use these services while still following company policies. We do this via various utilities that we have built and implemented within the engineering team. As processes constantly evolve, you will help to create and expand upon tools that further this initiative.

  • You will help us expand on our monitoring capabilities by identifying valuable data and ensuring it is parsed and searchable by our research teams. We use a combination of logs, system metrics, and application performance metrics to help debug interesting challenges. As our services grow, the more interesting these challenges can become, so we will rely on you to help us identify, resolve, and predict these issues.
  • You will help design ‘self-healing’ solutions to help ensure the stability and security of our services, in addition to helping control costs. We regularly write custom code to help perform monotonous tasks that would normally require human intervention. This requires careful consideration and lots of testing, but tends to be pretty fun.

  • Experience managing large scale services
  • Production experience with docker

  • Excellent knowledge of git best practices (Git Flow)
  • Good understanding of modern micro-services architectures
  • Production experience gathering, digesting, and improving monitoring and performance metrics
  • Experience designing and enforcing disaster recovery plans and business continuity contingencies
  • Experience being on-call in a 24x7 production environment.
  • Meticulous attention to detail and strong organization skills.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Information Systems, Engineering, or other related disciplines
  • Additional training, technical certification, and/or year’s experience may be substituted in lieu of a degree.
