Proofpoint is looking for a high energy software engineer to join the Threat Response product team. Threat Response is one of the fastest growing products at Proofpoint by revolutionizing how customers manage the increasing volume and complexity of cyber-attacks. The explosion of new threat detection technologies is creating a huge volume of security alerts that overwhelm manual security response teams, which leads to delays or errors that can land companies in the headlines. Threat Response closes the gap between cyber-attack detection and containment by providing a platform that unifies security infrastructure to allow customers to analyze and respond to security events in real time.

Take end-to-end ownership of design and implementation of product features.
Write great production-ready code on schedule.
Collaborate with others, be a great teammate, and help us maintain our positive culture.
Have the flexibility to adapt and pitch in on other projects as needed.
