#WeAreCrowdStrike and our mission is to stop breaches. As a global leader in cybersecurity, our team changed the game.

We are looking for a passionate Software Engineer to join our Discover Cloud Team!

Falcon Discover is CrowdStrike's IT visibility & hygiene product, providing a single pane of glass for IT and security professionals to deep-dive into a rich data set consisting of host, user and application data. We're dealing with an ever increasing volume of data - hundreds of TB of information - which needs to be served in real time. Find out more about the Falcon Discover -

Discover is more than just a product though - it's also becoming a platform that aims to provide a unified experience for visibility data spread across multiple modules of the Falcon Console. The challenge here is huge - correlating information from different data sources and deriving actionable insights is very interesting at this scale. This is where you come into play - we're looking for a very passionate engineer to join us on the road to making Discover the platform of choice for both customers and other product teams wanting to leverage the massive data set that we collect.
