About the Role:

CrowdStrike Falcon Host is a two-component security product. One component is a “sensor”, which is a driver installed on client machines that observes system activity and recognizes malicious behavior, then provides on-box prevention capability and remote telemetry to the Falcon Host cloud. The cloud component aggregates sensor telemetry for each customer’s network and correlates malicious behavior across multiple machines and presents our customers’ operations teams with a prioritized summary of the threats detected in their environments.

Join CrowdStrike and become a key member in building the most innovative endpoint security solution in the world. Our sensor development team is responsible for building the endpoint sensor which deploys on multiple platforms including Windows, Mac, and Linux. As a Software Engineer, you will be expected to have ownership over major components and development projects. You will be required to assist with architecting solutions and support in implementing our core features. Features will cross-cut most core OS subsystems such as file system, memory and process, and networking. Many features are also built in a way that they will have shared components across multiple platforms. You need to be able to lead projects efficiently while maximizing performance and minimizing costs, making sure high standards are being followed when it comes to design, coding quality, and unit and component testing.

What You’ll Do:

  • Work with distributed and multi-functional teams in designing and building software with cross-platform capabilities (Windows, Mac, Linux).

  • Own features from design to delivery including participation in product demo at the end of the sprint

  • Design and develop sensor platform modules and tools to improve sensor reliability, scalability and debuggability

Why You’ll Need:

  • Strong background in scalable, light-weight and highly performing systems

  • Strong low-level OS internals and concepts

  • In depth knowledge of concurrency, multi-core, thread development and synchronization

  • In depth knowledge of C++ and OS Kernel, Driver Development

  • Experience debugging memory corruptions, contentions and system performance

  • Experience working with teams to ship major features and releases.
