Careers At Optik Security

Help Us Solve the Big Problems

Data Scientist / Machine Learning Engineer

Why Work At Optik Security

Optik Security is defining the next generation of email security defense. Our platform uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to baseline communication content, user identity, and behavioral signals in real-time and at-scale in order to detect the abnormalities of email attacks.

Customers love us because we consistently detect and stop what everyone else in the market can’t — advanced attacks that have never been seen before — and we do so with beautiful user interfaces and best-in-industry customer support.

We believe strongly in autonomy for our engineering team; in collaboration with the product owners and engineering colleagues, our engineers are empowered to make decisions about every aspect of our architecture and development process. We’re GCP hosted and are working hard to automate away as much of the reactive and tedious aspects of development as possible. We have a nice Scrum approach and look to improve with each sprint.

Position Summary

We are tackling hard and unsolved cybersecurity problems, and machine learning is the only way we will succeed. As a member of the machine learning team, you will be responsible for developing and improving ML models to detect attacks, and coming up with new and clever ways to pull signals out of huge amounts of data. Your work will be open ended, but goal directed.
