  • Participate and contribute to upstream open-source communities



  • You have managed a team of software engineers
  • You have significant systems programming experience in one or more languages
  • You have mastered Linux, from the system to the libs to the common apps
  • You have a BS/MS/PhD in a scientific field or equivalent experience


Bonus points:

  • You have designed and shipped security products
  • You are a master at C or Go
  • You have used and developed tools using eBPF
