The Job

  • This job is in the engineering group.
  • This is an individual contributor role (not people management)
  • Located in Los Angeles, although exceptional candidates a few time zones away will also be considered.
  • Suitable for mid- and senior- level engineers

Problems

“Make tools that work.” “Make tools people love.” “Make the invisible visible.” This were some of founding principles when starting Signal Sciences. It applies internally just as much as it does for our main product. Data is frequently trapped in inconvenient places and in a poor format.

Getting this data out, to be people that need it, in a timely manner not only makes their work lives better–it accelerates our business. Unlike product-side engineering with long leads time, you can build something for your customers and instantly get feedback from your customers, because your customers are your peers. This is incredibly rewarding. Bonus: you can use the latest browser technology!

Solutions

Successful candidates are like to be “people oriented” rather than “technology oriented”. Former sales engineers: welcome. Senior engineers looking for a more human interaction and perhaps looking to start building a team: welcome. Product managers and UI people who can code: welcome. Engineers looking to learn more about security and business: welcome.

  • We’d prefer not using the word “full stack engineer” but you are likely to use a little bit of database, a little bit of programming, and some UI as well. So that’s full stack.
  • We primarily use Go (golang) but happy to take refugees from other languages especially Python, Ruby and PHP (others welcome) Most of the team did not start on Go, and they have all been productive quickly.
  • You’ll need strong linux and some bash skills just to get things moving.
