Sqreen

Job description

Sqreen is the application security platform for the modern enterprise. More than 800 organizations trust Sqreen to protect, observe and test their applications, APIs and microservices. As opposed to pattern-based approaches, Sqreen analyses in-app execution in real time to deliver more robust security without compromising performance. This empowers security owners to easily extend protection and visibility across their entire application portfolio without requiring on-going maintenance and tuning. With Sqreen, organizations of all sizes can strengthen their application security, decrease the number of security incidents and resolve incidents more quickly when they do occur.

> Ensure the cost efficiency of our platform (AWS)
> Refine our data model to prevent inconsistencies and loss
> Iterate on the architecture of our platform to efficiently share services across various squads
> Contribute to and improve our engineering standards, tooling, and processes

About You:


> Low ego and high emotional intelligence (EQ)

> Experience and love for building data intensive applications
> Excited to work in a fast, high growth startup environment
> Are familiar with AWS data offering (SQS, Kinesis, Athena, etc.) (bonus)
