Principal Software Engineer - Cloud Security Analytics
Splunk
 San Jose, CA

Are you passionate about working on products that make a difference for your customers? Do you enjoy building large scale applications that are powered by huge data sets? Do you value working in an environment where you're empowered to make key technical decisions across a full stack of technologies? If so, a role on Splunk Security Analytics team would be a great fit for you.

Analytics for Security Cloud (ASC) is Splunk’s next-generation, cloud-native, multi-tenant analytics solution that detects known and unknown security threats at petabyte scale. ASC detects threats in near real-time by using stream processing, artificial intelligence and other heuristic techniques in order to help security analysts quickly identify and mitigate security threats.

ASC is still in the early development phases which means that you will have the opportunity to help us build a new product from the ground up by designing, building and operating a product that directly supports security analysts all across the world!

We are a passionate team who care deeply about our customers and our teammates. In this role, you will work directly with Product Management, our Design Team, our Customers and other engineering teams to help derive the best experience for the customer. We have a lean process that focuses on empowering and serving our engineers as opposed to just directing them.

If staying technically challenged and learning from others is meaningful to you, you'll love our internal technical seminars and company-wide hackathons.
