Senior Software Engineer - Big Data

Palo Alto, California, United States | Big Data | Full-time


We build scalable near real-time big-data pipeline that processes millions of records per second containing network traffic and system activities like processes and network connections. The high-performance pipeline relies on many open-source projects like hdfs, spark, hbase, druid, kafka, yarn, zookeeper, and many home-grown libraries and tools. We have a tradition of celebrating elegantly designed and well-tested code for every part of our product. We take pride in being able to push our latest code to production environments in matter of days.

As a member of the team you will develop large scale solutions and algorithms for features like network data visibility and indexing, network policy management, application discovery, application performance, network security, anomaly detection, etc.

We hope that you are a self-motivated, passionate and curious team member who enjoys creating scalable solutions to problems. You embrace agile methodologies that involve rapid prototyping by feedback gathered from customers, peers and technical support engineers.
