Job Description

Would you like to be part of a company where the machine learning is at the core of its product offerings? Do you want to build (not analyze or support or A/B test) machine learning based product features from scratch? Are you interested in applying ML to a dataset that no other company in the world has? Can you innovate in a greenfield machine learning application that has rarely been researched in academia? Then come and join a collaborative team that builds solutions which provide deep performance insights, behavioral security analyses, and drive business analytics? Keep reading.

The ExtraHop platform is a novel approach to processing vast amounts of wire data in real-time. It provides unparalleled visibility into every transaction and behavior for every single entity within an enterprise network. This complete visibility allows our customers to proactively detect and remediate IT performance issues and cyber attacks in real time. As part of the data science team, you will be responsible for end-to-end delivery and operation of all machine learning capabilities across ExtraHop products.

We have a global and diverse user base-we believe in actively investing in a diverse engineering organization. We are seeking technically-qualified people from all backgrounds, who offer dynamic perspectives, influences, and experiences. Are you as passionate as we are about positive culture and amazing technology? If you are, we can't wait to chat with you.

Are you looking to make an impact? Do you love seeing your work implemented and hearing how your contributions have made a difference? ExtraHop offers an exciting, high energy, and versatile environment in which people are encouraged and supported to collaborate on industry-leading technology while they develop and enrich their individual growth.
