Are you someone who loves defending networks from cyber attacks? When you think of “full-stack”, do you envision writing native code on the endpoint as well as back end web services? Do you roll up your sleeves ready to carve solutions to any challenge? If so, come work with us!
We are looking for a software engineer to join a small, high paced team in support of our growing Security Business Unit in VMware. As a core member of this team, you’ll be tasked with designing and iterating on technical solutions to new problems facing the most critical networks we protect on behalf of our customers. Members of this team will be excited to take on new concepts, problems, and ideas, and quickly iterate technical solutions that have the potential to make a major impact on our customer’s security and our company’s success.
The ideal candidate is someone who understands both computer forensics and software engineering. Understanding the security problem space is important as this team will be handed open-ended tasks to research, develop innovative solutions, and integrate those solutions with our cloud-delivered security platform. Versatility, technical breadth, and the ability to juggle various tasks are more important than deep software engineering experience.
If you are:
An engineer with a wide variety of experience, from native languages such as C/C++ to backend web services
Ready for your next challenge
Not afraid to fail fast and iterate quickly
Able to translate potentially vague business requirements into innovative technical solutions
Able to balance detail with rapid execution and iteration
Humble and willing to mentor other teammates
Able to quickly dig in and integrate with other cloud-based web services
A strong communicator who can collaborate with engineering teams to take lessons learned forward into production
Excited to work with a distributed and cross-functional team
Eager to move work in a high-growth, fast-paced environment
Able to work effectively and efficiently in a decentralized, remote work environment
Then you’re exactly the person we need. Join us in the battle to secure the world’s compute stack!
What you'll Do:
Design, develop, test, document and maintain complex software features from general specifications.
Apply proven patterns, design principles and software engineering practices to develop quality software.
Plan and take responsibility for multiple features through the complete software development lifecycle.
Analyze, isolate and resolve problems in product software with little or no guidance.
Respond to high-priority issues quickly and drive to resolution and customer satisfaction.
Lead and contribute to reviews of software artifacts and give considered, high-quality feedback.
Evaluate, select and adapt standard techniques, tools and procedures in the delivery of features.
Independently collaborate with peers and with other functional organizations to achieve project goals.
Plan and schedule work and tasks across multiple features, manage dependencies, change and risk.
Lead projects and the delivery of multiple features to successful conclusion with a minimum of guidance.
Provide technical supervision and mentoring of one or more engineers.
Recommend new features, technologies, tools, process improvements.
Deliver technical training and training materials for other functional organizations in the company.
What You'll Bring
At least nine years of software engineering in a product development organization
Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field.
At least five years recent experience building systems-level software (e.g. kernel modules, agents).
Experience with platform-level development and debugger tooling (WinDbg and Windows Driver Kit for Windows, for example)
Deep knowledge in at least two related product or technical areas such as file systems or distributed systems.
A record of efficient, creative solutions to complex problems and successful incorporation in product delivery.
Practical experience in C++ with applied knowledge of object oriented and generic programming.
Fluent in approaches to security, concurrency, debugging, performance, scalability, supportability and quality.
Knowledge of offensive and defensive cyber-security concepts and tactics, secure software development, incident response and/or computer forensics preferred.
