About the Role:

CrowdStrike Falcon Host is a two-component security product. One component is a “sensor”: 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 sensor processes thousands of events per second to provide deep visibility into operations on the endpoint, and performs rich correlation and computation to identify malicious events and blocks malicious activity.

The cloud component aggregates sensor telemetry for each customer’s network, correlates malicious behavior across multiple machines, and presents our customers’ operations teams with a prioritized summary of the threats detected in their environments.

This is a Senior Software Development Engineer (SDE) role in the engineering team that delivers the sensor (lightweight agent) on Windows. SDE’s in the team own design and development of core features on the platform. Features will cross-cut most core OS subsystems such as file system, memory, process, and networking. Many features are also built in a way that they will have shared components across Linux and Mac. The team operates under the Agile development principles and ships frequently.

What You'll Do:

  • Provide partnership on the sensor development team involved in architecture, strategy, in building and improving next-generation Anti-Virus and Enhanced Detection and Response Security Software.

  • Develop new product concepts.

  • Support development teams in designing and building software with cross-platform deliverables (Windows, Mac, Linux).

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

  • Collaborate with multi-functional teams in various locations

What You’ll Need:

  • In depth knowledge with C++ and Windows OS Kernel and Driver Development

  • Strong low-level OS internals in Windows

  • Experience debugging memory corruptions, process contentions and system performance

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

  • Lead, mentor, communicate, collaborate, and work effectively in a distributed team

Bonus Points:

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

  • OS system expertise for core concepts and subsystems

  • Familiarity and experience with Agile process

  • Knowledge in Security
