At CrowdStrike we’re on a mission - to stop breaches. Our groundbreaking technology, services delivery, and intelligence gathering together with our innovations in machine learning and behavioral-based detection, allow our customers to not only defend themselves, but do so in a future-proof manner. We’ve earned numerous honors and top rankings for our technology, organization and people – clearly confirming our industry leadership and our special culture driving it. We also offer flexible work arrangements to help our people manage their personal and professional lives in a way that works for them. So if you’re ready to work on unrivaled technology where your desire to be part of a collaborative team is met with a laser-focused mission to stop breaches and protect people globally, let’s talk.

About the Role:

We are looking for a Senior Software Development Engineer (SDE) on our Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP) team which is a brand new and a key product area for CrowdStrike. We’re extending CrowdStrike’s mission of “stopping breaches” into the public cloud and cloud native workloads.

CrowdStrike’s CWPP offering will give customers the ability to monitor and track their cloud native workloads as well as hardening and protecting them against attacks prior to deployment. This offering will help with defending against potential adversary activities involving cloud native resources. When coupled with Falcon, CrowdStrike’s endpoint security offering, our CWPP offering will provide a more comprehensive perspective on how the adversary is targeting key customer infrastructure. Our ultimate goal is to providing a single platform for securing the entire lifecycle of cloud workloads.

As part of this team you’ll be extending our Linux sensor to gather critical metadata about cloud workloads and also enable us to protect workloads during runtime. You’ll be extracting key metadata information from various low level container environments and also from within containers and making that data available to our platform for processing. Your code will be deployed to mission critical environments protecting production applications.

  • Own features from design to delivery

  • Reverse engineer cloud technologies and implement necessary protections to stop breaches

  • Collaborate with multi-functional team in various physical locations

  • Troubleshoot issues with the product as they arise

Minimum Requirements:

  • Experience 3+ years

  • Experience working on product features on Linux or Unix in C/C++ with the following characteristics:

  • high concurrency requirements needing strong use of multi-threading

  • high reliability requirements

  • Understanding of Docker, Kubernetes (or similar orchestration frameworks) is a plus

  • Experience working on a team to ship major features and releases

  • Ability to communicate, collaborate, and work effectively in a distributed team

  • Be an energetic ‘self-starter’ with the ability to take ownership and be accountable for deliverables, both individually and when leading a team.

Benefits of Working at CrowdStrike:

  • Market leader in compensation and equity awards
  • Competitive vacation policy
  • Comprehensive health benefits + 401k plan
  • Paid parental leave, including adoption
  • Flexible work environment
  • Wellness programs

We are committed to building an inclusive culture of belonging that not only embraces the diversity of our people but also reflects the diversity of the communities in which we work and the customers we serve. We know that the happiest and highest performing teams include people with diverse perspectives and ways of solving problems so we strive to attract and retain talent from all backgrounds and create workplaces where everyone feels empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work.
