#WeAreCrowdStrike and our mission is to stop breaches. As a global leader in cybersecurity, our team changed the game. Since our inception, our market leading cloud-native platform has offered unparalleled protection against the most sophisticated cyberattacks. We're looking for people with limitless passion, a relentless focus on innovation and a fanatical commitment to the customer to join us in shaping the future of cybersecurity. Consistently recognized as a top workplace, CrowdStrike is committed to cultivating an inclusive, remote-first culture that offers people the autonomy and flexibility to balance the needs of work and life while taking their career to the next level. Interested in working for a company that sets the standard and leads with integrity? Join us on a mission that matters - one team, one fight.
About the Role:
We're building the next-generation infrastructure and security platform for CrowdStrike. The OverWatch Labs (OWL) team builds the platform and tools for our analysts on the OverWatch team to process and hunt (identify potentially harmful activity) through trillions of events per day, and growing.
We are looking for an engineer who wants to help move the OWL platform forward as we scale even further. Someone with a broad range of computer skills throughout the software stack and clear communication skills would thrive in this environment. You should love working on large-scale, distributed, cloud-based, highly available systems that can efficiently operate over trillions of events per day.
Team Culture:

  • Stay humble. Stay positive. Stay hungry.
  • Exhaustively passionate: We can't emphasize this enough. We love what we do, and feel our work is making a notable impact and difference on a global and geopolitical scale.
  • Strong work ethic: We work extremely hard, not just smart. It's essential to our success. Be ready to be dedicated and focused.
  • Team player: Our success and failures are shared together. We learn from each other. We help each other to grow and develop. We take constructive criticism gracefully and give credit where credit is due.
  • Learner: Be willing to learn, to seek truth, and understanding. Take the initiative to acquire knowledge and investigate questions you might have.
  • Adaptable/Agile/Flexible: Nothing ever goes according to plan, be prepared to do any task necessary that benefits and contributes to the team success (i.e. low-level data entry to high-level research design and experimentation)
  • We are looking for an engineer to work on building and maintaining scalable data infrastructure/platforms and tools for our team. Someone with foundational knowledge in algorithms, software engineering/development and operational research is highly preferred. In short, someone who has the technical groundwork, ready to gain experience and communicates well with others.

  • Bring research projects into production environments and integrate them with the OWL systems.
  • Work in a devops environment where you (and your team) are responsible for the systems you deploy. This will involve an on-call rota.


  • Be an energetic 'self-starter' with the ability to take ownership and be accountable for deliverables.
  • Have a desire for quality and understand what tools and processes you need to reach that level and help the team reach a higher bar.
  • Be an adaptable and flexible engineer who is constantly learning and enjoys tackling complex and novel challenges.
  • Use and give back to the open source community.
  • Work as part of a distributed team of remote workers across time zones.
