#WeAreCrowdStrike and our mission is to stop breaches. As a global leader in cybersecurity, our team changed the game. Since our inception, our market leading cloud-native platform has offered unparalleled protection against the most sophisticated cyberattacks. We work on large scale distributed systems, processing over 1 trillion events a day with a petabyte of RAM deployed in our Cassandra clusters - and this traffic is growing daily. We’re looking for people with limitless passion, a relentless focus on innovation and a fanatical commitment to developing and shaping our cybersecurity platform.

About the Role: CrowdStrike is looking for a Senior-to-Principal (Level 7) Technical Contributor whose experience, skills and interests exist at the intersection of SaaS product development and advocacy + evangelism on behalf of the customers and partners who want to extend their use of those products (in this case, our Falcon Platform).

Foundry, our low-code/no-code Security Application Platform, offers customers the ability to extend their use of the Falcon Platform by building custom apps to solve the unique cybersecurity challenges and stop adversaries.

The Falcon APIs provide programmatic access to the Falcon platform, thereby further enhancing the value customers derive from the Falcon modules they have licensed.
