About Us:

SentinelOne is defining the future of cybersecurity through our XDR platform that automatically prevents, detects, and responds to threats in real-time. Singularity XDR ingests data and leverages our patented AI models to deliver autonomous protection. With SentinelOne, organizations gain full transparency into everything happening across the network at machine speed – to defeat every attack, at every stage of the threat lifecycle.

We are a values-driven team where names are known, results are rewarded, and friendships are formed. Trust, accountability, relentlessness, ingenuity, and OneSentinel define the pillars of our collaborative and unified global culture. We're looking for people that will drive team success and collaboration across SentinelOne.

What our team does

The EventDB team of 7 as part of the Security Data Lake productline is responsible for SentinelOne's highly scalable columnar database. Ingesting hundreds of billions of events every day, handling billions of objects and enabling search-ability and insight for our customers into their data. With blazing speed, queries returning in milliseconds, and immediate querying of live and historical data at petabyte scale. Born from our acquisition of Scalyr/DataSet in 2021, EventDB is not just a regular database; it is engineered to efficiently scale to exabytes, serving as a critical component in our security and data infrastructure.

Our team solves non-trivial scale and data problems with a unique blending of cloud, distributed systems, and software optimization techniques and services.

We're seeking a seasoned colleague, able to lead features/epics, inspire others as Staff engineer, and lead them technically.

Does this sound like you?

  • You’re passionate about building high-scale elegant and simple distributed systems - and during the past several years you’ve successfully designed & implemented them (using Java or similar), to solve complex problems.
  • You enjoy a collaborative development process using design discussions and code review.
  • You’re looking for a challenge that doesn’t just require you to use technologies like Kafka and Cassandra, but require you to rebuild them because they didn’t meet the project requirements.

It’d be great if / or You’d learn & gain on our team:

  • You possess solid foundation on horizontal scaling, data algorithms and knowledge of modern databases/data stacks such as DynamoDB, Redis, and/or Druid.
  • You have experience with SaaS processing cloud scale data.
  • You can identify relevant algorithms in the literature & bring them into production when they fit.
  • You can discuss CAP theorem tradeoffs and give examples.
  • You enjoy writing modern Java (we love lambdas) and prefer composition to inheritance.
  • Garbage collection doesn’t faze you because you know the JVM like the back of your hand. You can rattle off the available garbage collectors and their tuning parameters.
