Senior Machine Learning Engineer - Infrastructure Focus
- Austin, TX
Duo Security, now a part of Cisco, is the leading provider of Trusted Access security and multi-factor authentication delivered through the cloud.
Duo’s mission is to make security simple for everyone. We were born from a hacker ethos and a desire to make the Internet a secure place. We believe in empowering people to follow their passions inside and outside of the office and enable every employee to bring their whole self to work.
Our team is our secret weapon. We run the spectrum from artists to analysts, low-key to high energy, and bring together a diversity of skill sets, experiences, and perspectives to solve what we consider to be the world's most pressing geopolitical challenge — transforming the security industry as we know it. Together we build solutions that are easy, effective, trustworthy, and enduring. And that’s why we are the most loved and trusted company in security.
Are you passionate about machine learning and solving hard security problems to help organizations of all sizes? Do you want to work closely with a pragmatic and diverse group of data scientists and security researchers in Duo’s industry-leading security department? Do you have great ideas about what an ideal modern machine learning infrastructure should look like? If yes, then you might be a good fit for this role.
On Duo’s data science team, we use machine learning and statistics to bring new product capabilities and analytical insights to our customers. Our largest project involves proactively detecting anomalous behavior within our customers’ accounts. We sit inside of Duo Labs, an advanced research group that uses deep industry knowledge and innovation to protect customers and the public at large. Spanning security researchers, engineers and data scientists, Labs prototypes new features and products, builds internal tools, and extracts insights from data.
