Venor is proud to partner with our client, Arctic Wolf, in their search for a Senior Developer. As a Senior Developer in the Storage and Search space, you’ll work on the team that builds large-scale solutions for cyber security use cases. They collect millions of data points per second from customers’ data sources.  Their team designs, builds and runs distributed systems that archive and search that data, to improve customers’ security posture. As a result, you’ll work within the exciting intersections of big data, distributed computing, cloud technologies and infrastructure as code. Their existing stacks include components written in Python and Go, deployed within Amazon Web Services. They leverage both Kubernetes and other containerized platforms.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Implementation and design of new archival and data access products, taking customer requirements into account
  • Deployment, configuration, and maintenance of our existing Python and Go based systems
  • Improving our system’s scalability and reliability as we grow
  • Mentoring new and junior team members

Arctic Wolf values a culture of sharing, so every team has the opportunity to share their work with the entire department during their monthly R&D Demos. Once a year Arctic Wolf holds 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 their products.

As the successful candidate, you are experienced as a Developer, showing initiative 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.

You should have extensive work experience in the following areas:

  • Significant experience with working on backend systems
  • Excited about working in the big data space
  • Relevant experience developing software in either Python, Go, or other similar languages
  • Comprehensive experience in software development of event-driven services and web APIs.
  • Experience with Amazon Web Services or other cloud platforms, preferably with distributed object storage and parallel computing (S3, Lambda, DynamoDB).
  • Ability to work cohesively within a team and habitually spread knowledge in various forms (verbally, documentation)
  • Ability, comfort, and interest in picking up new technologies and frameworks which you may not be familiar with
  • Understanding of 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. Previous security experience is preferred but not required. Arctic Wolf provides all the cybersecurity training you need during onboarding and on-the-job training.
