What we need your help with

As a key part of our product engineering team, you'll be building the back end of Sqreen. Today, our platform analyses billions of security events and metrics sent by our agents, detecting threats and allowing our customers' applications to react in near real time.

Day-to-day you'll:

> Work with security, back-end and agent teams to architect, build, and launch new features
> Maintain and improve our production infrastructure
> Stay close to our users and our developer community via regular conferences and meetups
> Contribute to and improve our engineering standards, tooling, and processes
> Ensure the availability, latency, performance and efficiency of our platform

Who you are

We'd love to hear from you if you have:

> Excellent user empathy
> Great communication skills
> High level of emotional intelligence (EQ)
> A conversational level of English or above (it's our working language)
> Some experience developing, maintaining and running back end applications - whilst not an entry level role, it would suit someone looking for a change from their initial software engineering position
> The desire to work on a Python codebase - most of Sqreen's backend team started working with Python at Sqreen, switching from Ruby, C#, Java and other languages
> A product mindset and enjoy working with people outside your area of expertise - every engineer at Sqreen collaborates daily with Sales, Support and other teams

Working under our Director of Engineering, Beth, this role also comes with the opportunity for 1:1 technical mentoring with Sqreen's Principal Engineer, Benoit.

Sqreeners come from all corners of the globe and all walks of life. Diversity is important to us, so if you're unsure, please apply!

> Ask for any book you like and enjoy a week per quarter to focus on a side project of your choice
