Job description
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!

Skills & requirements
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.
