We are looking for someone with:

  • Master's degree in Computer Science or related technical field or equivalent practical experience

  • ability to do "mental gymnastics" to solve complex problems in cybersecurity

  • knowledge of statistical machine learning methods

  • experience with being part of an SW development team delivering into production

  • fluent English

  • interest in cybersecurity and/or computer networking

  • passion, self-improvement mindset, and hardworking attitude

  • Scala, Spark, Flink Samza, Kafka, ... knowledge is a plus

  • Nice to have a running knowledge of basic UNIX utilities, SSH and Git


We expect:

  • Strong experience with coding - You speak better Java/Scala/Python than your native language

  • Analytical skills and mathematical reasoning - You can't sleep, so you prototype the model over the weekend, deploy it on a server, and explain everything to your mom the next day.

  • Willingness to work hard - You will be solving complex problems, often in a unique/novel way. It will be challenging to come up with a solution, it will take time, and you might iterate the approach multiple times. We expect you to understand this and be willing to push your knowledge and work hard to solve these problems. However, in the end, that's where your motivation and satisfaction come from.


In return, we offer:

  • a motivated and friendly team full of highly qualified experts

  • motivational financial evaluation and career growth
