What we look for:

Our best engineers are collaborative and selfless. They enjoy writing code but they prioritize mentoring and supporting others. They leave code cleaner than when they found it but don’t insist on particular patterns. They optimize for simplicity and readability. They are involved in the full lifecycle of software development: understanding the requirements, designing the solution, writing the code, testing the code, testing the integration, deploying it to production, and monitoring the deployment. They are fully engaged in the problem domain.

What you will do: 

  • Work with Product Management and other engineers to design, develop, test, release and iterate on new customer facing features and products.
  • Nurture, refactor, and expand our systems to handle new, varied data models, while maintaining sensible code abstractions and improving the efficiency of our operations
  • Work with analysts to identify important trends from the threat landscape
  • Drive down total time taken for processing (code optimization and refactoring), deployment (smoother CI/CD pipelines), and other SLAs (delivery to clients via our infrastructure)
  • Improve our tooling for monitoring the health and efficiency of our systems
  • Write empathetic documentation and run-books to enable your team to be force multipliers for each other
  • Help bring in new technologies and develop innovative approaches to the data challenges we face
  • Apply your honesty, strong sense of morals and ethics, and sense of responsibility towards making Flashpoint and those around you smarter, stronger, and kinder

What you will bring:

  • 5+ years experience developing and maintaining production systems or other relevant experience
  • Proficiency in Python
  • Proficiency in CI/CD
  • Enjoyment for working in a close-knit, highly communicative and collaborative team
  • A coding personality that excels at debugging and applying glue in engineering gaps

Technologies you will work with:

The core responsibility of an engineer on the Account Takeover Prevention team is to build and maintain well-running applications and APIs. This means you will work with:

  • Streaming pipelines using tools like Kafka, AWS MSK, and Google PubSub
  • Cloud providers like AWS and GCP
  • Containers technologies like Docker and Kubernetes
  • Business Intelligence platforms like Tableau, Looker, and Snowflake
  • Python testing frameworks like pytest
  • Search databases like Elasticsearch and Solr
  • Key/Value stores like Redis, Cassandra, and BigTable
  • Monitoring tools like ElasticAPM, Prometheus, and Grafana
