Senior Backend Engineer (Python, Go) - Endpoint Protection



Software Engineering
Brno, Czechia · South Moravian Region, Czechia
Posted on Friday, April 12, 2024

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!

About the team & role

Our team is responsible for Endpoint Protection services, and covers end-to-end from agent communication to backend to frontend the following areas:

  • Building services that process traffic between SentinelOne's Agent (which is responsible for protection across all kinds of OS - Windows, Linux, macOS) and our cloud-based Management console, and building common modules (like a communicator layer).
  • Developing a major part of backend (written mostly in Python and partially in Go) and frontend of this Management console itself - a large-scale distributed system, with a client facing, data-heavy & complex web application, allowing IT security teams of our clients to manage the fleet of agents deployed on endpoints in client's environments. The look & feel of our console can be seen in many S1 vs. Ransomware demos.

You'll be joining a scrum team of 5 with a significant impact on how our customers' environments (incl. 4 or Fortune10 companies or hundreds of Global2000) are protected, how they interact with agents, gain visibility into their security posture, and understand the risks and act upon them. As core team at S1, we're heavily involved in every end-to-end effort, features development and are key contributors to the design and build of the right architecture of S1's cybersecurity solution to match the scale & hyper-growth of our business.

What Will You Do?

As senior Software Engineer and a new member of our team, you will take part in building our next-generation endpoint security offering.

  • You will be a stakeholder in the architecture, design, and implementation of a multi-disciplinary cloud-native cybersecurity software platform that serves thousands of users from security teams at enterprise & government customers across the globe and protects tens of millions of endpoints & billions of events every day.
  • Software engineers on our team are independent, they lead the features E2E, come up with own improvements in infrastructure and performance components, have the space to promote their own ideas, design & implement them; they own very important flows at S1 and deal with extraordinary performance and optimization challenges, given the scale of our cybersecurity services.
Your main tools: Python (Flask, SQLAlchemy, Marshmallow) and Golang (we're starting to use for new development); AWS&GCP; PostgreSQL, Redis, Kafka; Kubernetes, Docker; GitHub etc.

What skills and knowledge should you need to bring?

  • 4+ years of hands-on experience with Python and/or Go, or similar
  • Ability to quickly dive into new products and understand their inner working
  • Self-driven individual

  • Experience with Docker, Helm & Kubernetes
  • Familiarity with AWS and/or other cloud platforms
  • A plus would be experience from a SaaS company

Why us?
