Careers At Optik Security

Help Us Solve the Big Problems

Full Stack 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.

  • You will be responsible for the day-to-day development and high-availability maintenance of the web application, data-processing pipeline, and related services
  • Create applications that fundamentally protect people on the Internet
  • Work in a cross-functional team to identify product needs, design solutions, and prioritize work
  • Investigate technologies and build tools and services with other engineers across the company
  • Practice secure development methodologies during design, implementation, and maintenance of Optik Security products and services

Your Keys to Success

  • 5 years of experience in a Software Engineering environment
  • Proficiency with high-performance data processing
  • Experience developing distributed systems which can handle data at scale
  • Experience with relational databases and SQL (particularly PostgreSQL)
  • Ability to identify technical and non-technical needs of a product
  • Ability to communicate well with people from all departments (within the Product/Engineering organization and beyond)
  • Experience building and scaling applications and components using Amazon Web Services such as Lambda, SQS, Elasticsearch Service, RDS, CloudFront, DynamoDB, etc.
  • Knowledge of standards for email structure and transport protocols
  • Experience developing in and deploying to containerized environments (e.g. using Docker)
  • Experience with infrastructure automation tools like Helm and Terraform
  • Comfortable using Linux in a development, test, and production environment

Brownie Points

  • Knowledge of container orchestration technologies (Kubernetes, EKS, AKS, GCP)
  • Experience leveraging build and continuous integration (CI) platforms such as Drone
  • Knowledge of email authentication technologies (SPF, DKIM, DMARC)
