Gravwell’s core mission is to enable teams in IT, OT, and marketing to perform hunt operations; which means enabling humans to identify and understand data features and emergent behaviors in IT operations, physical systems, security incidents, and marketing.

Job position

Job description
The senior software and systems engineer position supports Gravwell’s software engineering and systems development group which is responsible for the design, development, and testing of the core Gravwell analytics platform and will report directly to the CTO. Well suited candidates are self-motivated and capable of working remotely on tasks which may be self-designated. Candidates must be US citizens and resident in the contiguous 48 states.

The core platform is a highly concurrent distributed system designed to ingest and analyze all manners of data; including text, network traffic, executables, audio, and video. Candidates are expected to be very comfortable on a Linux and/or BSD platform and capable debugging and designing distributed and concurrent systems.

Skills & requirements
A qualified candidate must be well versed in Unix process flow, task management, concurrent program design, distributed systems, and system security.
