Software Engineering - Golang - Product

About Us

Signal Sciences empowers security and engineering teams by providing visible and effective web application security protecting against real-world attacks. With our unique hybrid on-premise and cloud architecture, we process, protect and report on billions of requests per day for some of the most sophisticated companies in the world ranging from Adobe to Vimeo, Taser to Under Armour. Our goal is making a more secure Web, with tools that people love to use, written by people who love to make them. Join us.

The Job

  • Is in the engineering group.
  • Located in either Los Angeles, CA although exceptional candidates a few time zones away will be considered.
  • Is an individual contributor job (not people management).

Problems

We are taking the “greatest hits” of consumer e-commerce and applying to the enterprise, making tools security and engineering professionals actually want to use. This means we are (among other things):

  • API first
  • Performance obsessed
  • Data driven

To this end we have a nice suite of tools to help developers manage complexity from conception to production: feature flags, one-button deploys, and plenty of graphs.

We have our own roadmap of features to help change the security, and web applications are made. But, in addition, our pesky customers (only the largest and most sophisticated on Internet) keep finding new uses and keep coming up with new requirements.

Solutions

The term “full stack engineer” means something a little different here at Signal Sciences. Here it means:

  • Working with the Product to help define requirements and scope
  • Working with the API team, so you can get you the data you need
  • Working with the UI team, so people can actually see your work
  • Working with the Support and Sales Engineering Team, to help understand customer requirements and any problems with the existing service.
  • Working with the Ops to make sure your new servers and services are rock solid, monitorable and visible and even talking to customers to get unfiltered feedback. That’s the best part!

And oh yeah, you’ll be doing lots of programming. You’ll likely need:

  • Strong linux and bash skills
  • Proficiency in javascript. We use a lot of React/Redux but we’ll train you for that part.
  • Proficiency in a few different lanaguges. We primarily program in Go “golang” but most of the current team has backgrounds in everything from PHP to Java to C++.
  • Previous experience in interdisciplinary software development “at scale”
  • Background in public facing consumer sites, or enterprise developers welcome.

How to Apply

To apply, please email the following things to careers@signalsciences.com: (1) your resume, preferably in PDF, plaintext or markdown format, (2) your GitHub or other social-coding handle, or a URL to your personal site or blog, and (3) a brief introduction to yourself, and why the job and Signal Sciences are right you.
