Posted on Saturday, September 9, 2023

About Us:

SentinelOne is defining the future of cybersecurity through our XDR platform that automatically prevents, detects, and responds to threats in real-time. Singularity XDR ingests data and leverages our patented AI models to deliver autonomous protection. With SentinelOne, organizations gain full transparency into everything happening across the network at machine speed – to defeat every attack, at every stage of the threat lifecycle.

We are a values-driven team where names are known, results are rewarded, and friendships are formed. Trust, accountability, relentlessness, ingenuity, and OneSentinel define the pillars of our collaborative and unified global culture. We're looking for people that will drive team success and collaboration across SentinelOne. If you’re enthusiastic about innovative approaches to problem-solving, we would love to speak with you about joining our team!

What are we looking for?

The EventDB team is responsible for SentinelOne's highly-scalable columnar database, ingesting billions of events every day and enabling search-ability and insight for our customers into their data. Our team solves non-trivial scale and data problems with a unique blending of cloud, distributed systems, and software optimization techniques and services.

Does this sound like you?

  • You are passionate about building high-scale distributed systems
  • You love to dogfood the product you work on - we are very vocal customers of our own product
  • You enjoy a collaborative development process using design discussions and code review

Bonus points:

  • You are looking for a challenge that doesn’t just require you to use technologies like Kafka and Cassandra, but requires you to rebuild them because they didn’t meet the project requirements
  • You can identify relevant algorithms in the literature, and bring them into production when they fit
  • You have successfully designed and implemented elegant and simple distributed systems to solve complex problems
  • You can discuss CAP theorem tradeoffs and give examples
  • You enjoy writing modern Java (we love lambdas), and prefer composition to inheritance
  • Garbage collection doesn’t faze you because you know the JVM like the back of your hand; you can rattle off the available garbage collectors and their tuning parameters

What will you do?

  • Review code for quality, test coverage, security
  • Build and Review Technical Specifications
  • Document trade-offs in solutions/implementations
  • Document critical implementation details/data structures
  • Review and provide feedback on other specs
