Back End Architect Alert Logic
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED In today?s threat environment, protecting information assets has never been more challenging. Detecting sophisticated blended threats requires sifting through huge volumes of data from multiple sources to find telltale signs of potential breaches. The challenge is only magnified in cloud environments where change is constant and many of the traditional rules of on-premise infrastructure do not apply. Our customers are seeking to outsource this security responsibility and the attendant compliance concerns to Alert Logic.
The Alert Logic Emerging Technologies team is chartered to deliver the next generation of Alert Logic solutions, composed of tightly integrated security products, expert system analytics, incident response, security research, and cloud-based processing and storage. Our customers will leverage these Security-as-a-Service solutions to fundamentally change how information security is delivered ? from today?s integration of best-of-breed, standalone products to tomorrow?s comprehensive solution.
You will be an integral part of a multi-talented team of engineers leading the development of a comprehensive best-of-breed security solution. This group of peers is challenged to re-think the delivery of the next generation of Alert Logic solutions, including but not limited to the development of an entirely new service and data infrastructure.
By joining the Emerging Technologies team today, you will be instrumental for setting the technical direction of the company for years to come. Alert Logic uses state of the art design for distributed computing and we are currently reimagining our systems in order to move further ahead of the pack. As an Architect on this team, you will be designing systems and leading other engineers in the creation of robust distributed systems, data models and best practices for software engineering.
Our ideal candidate will be an expert in distributed computing, and in particular service-oriented architectures. You will be an expert in data modeling and making strategic decisions on database selection and design. You will understand that software architecture is all about making engineering tradeoffs to ensure the strategic technical direction of the company is in step with the strategic business direction. You will lead by example and coaching, rather than mandates.
