Job Description

Ask yourself one question before reading further: Do you dwell on solving mundane issues that have bored the industry for decades, or do you think about redefining the game by solving more strategic problems?

If you're intrigued, on. You *may* be the human we've been trying to find.

Here at, we charge head-first at hard-to-solve, fun-to-fix, and highly rewarding issues facing modern cloud companies. We don't compromise our values: cloud-first, cloud-always, cloud-leading solutions for security and compliance challenges facing every company in the public and private cloud. This company was founded by principals from AWS, Azure, Adobe, and Netflix -- the giants of cloud-industry. The team rallied around solving the problem that plagues companies who embrace cloud and operate at scale: protecting the assets in a company's cloud from the first to the ten-billionth. Scale is part of our blood, and differentiates us from everyone else in the industry. We're the only cloud security company in our space founded by actual practitioners with real-world cloud-scale experience; our team is the best and seeks the best to bolster our ranks. We're even by the best VCs in the business: Google Ventures, Bain Capital Ventures, True Ventures, and Venrock. is well-funded, winning customers at a phenomenal rate, and leave competition in the rear-view mirror.

You'll face all the typical work rigors: write code, tests, documentation, bugfixes, scale/performance enhancements, etc. That's the same no matter where you go. Where we diverge from the norm is our ability to enable our engineers to build cutting-edge research prototypes and take them to production with our world-class product team. The latest Forrester report shows us as the biggest company amongst our competitive set by a huge margin -- this market measurement is a representation of our commitment to the best engineering talent and the winning team culture we've establish.

This particular role will be an individual contributor on our Core Platform Engineering team. The Core Platform is our cloud-scale API and event-stream ingestion engine, delivering data intelligence to our Full Stack and UI/UX teams for computation and rendering to the end-users. It's the nucleus of our platform; are you the nuclear physicist ready to wield its secrets?


* 5-7+ years of Java (Groovy is cool, too).
* Experience with Golang (or strong demonstrated desire to learn)
* Testing with Junit and Spock. (We love tests!)
* Apache Storm or related distributed computing experience is a huge plus!
* Familiarity with large-scale distributed service layers like: Kafka, Zookeeper, etc.
* Motivation to build awesome software without handholding -- we're all adults here.
* Development experience on AWS/GCP/Azure


* Competitive salary & stock incentives in a category leading startup
* Challenging problems to solve with brilliant peers
* Unlimited PTO and flexible working environment (remote/office split)
* Fully-paid health, vision, and dental benefits on a top-tier carrier plan for you and all dependants. We even have gym membership reimbursement!
* Superb office culture where everyone is treated equally and with respect
* The best customers in the world -- if you shop online, at a store, play video games, or watch TV… you're seeing Evident Security Platform without knowing it!
