Venor is proud to partner with our client Arctic Wolf in their search for a Senior Developer. Monitoring over 200 billion security events daily, the Arctic Wolf Networks is a cybersecurity platform that helps small and mid-sized organizations to detect and respond to cyber threats. Built on an open XDR architecture, the platform collects and enriches endpoint, network, and cloud telemetry, and then analyzes it with multiple detection engines. Machine learning and custom detection rules then deliver personalized protection for your organization.

You’ll be working as a lead software developer within the Applications Team, responsible for delivering the cloud-based software that helps solve the real-world security problems that IT professionals face. They develop the internal tools used by the security services team to keep customers safe and informed.

A lead developer is responsible for providing the team technical direction to deliver high-value, performant software solutions. The lead developer will provide technical guidance and direction to a team of developers through the design, implementation, and automated/integration testing of our software. They will also provide guidance on best practices for running, monitoring, and maintaining our system. This is different from a Team Lead. The Team lead is responsible for leading the team and projects that the team works on.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Participate in the full software development life cycle, regularly owning a project from inception to launch
  • Build well-designed, testable, efficient, secure code
  • Produce specifications and determine operational feasibility
  • Document and maintain software functionality
  • Contribute to the growth and mentorship of other team members
  • Develop trusted cross-team relationships to deliver solutions that span multiple areas of expertise

Arctic Wolf values a culture of sharing, so every team has the opportunity to share their work with the entire department during monthly R&D Demos. Once a year they hold a department-wide Hackathon, teaming up across all R&D teams over four days to collaborate and build cool ideas outside the normal project scope. While innovation is the focus, some of these ideas do make it into products.

What we’re looking for:

You’re an experienced software developer who enjoys solving complex technical challenges. You care about writing quality code that is maintainable. Working collaboratively in cross-functional teams is your thing. Colleagues look to you for guidance on software development best practices.

Here are some of the core technologies they use and teach across the Applications teams. You should have experience in one or more of these (or similar technologies):

  • Python/Django
  • Go
  • React/Typescript
  • AWS
  • Git
  • Docker
  • Kubernetes

In addition, you have proven leadership experience from previous projects, regardless of title held. You have the ability to perform programming tasks and large engineering projects with Independence and expertise. You will be responsible for guiding and mentoring other staff members and will regularly lead technical projects. You have a high level of mastery over software development best practices and building reusable design patterns.

You have a history of delivering successful projects, as well as some lessons learned from failures. Even if you haven’t worked with all of their specific technologies, you bring a diverse knowledge base that you use to help the team solve complex technical problems. You’ll receive all the security training you need during the onboarding process and through additional training on the job.

At Venor, we value and celebrate diversity. We welcome applications from all individuals of any race, color, religion, gender identity, orientation, national origin, or disability status.
