About the Role

The Cybersecurity Group (CG) team within SandboxAQ is building AQtive Guard, an end-to-end, cryptographic management platform that provides a full inventory of existing cryptography use, including vulnerability and compliance analysis, as well as a path to centrally-managed, robust and agile cryptography.

As part of CG’s Sensors team, you will build new capabilities to ingest & analyze cryptographic-related data from the major Cloud Service Providers within our platform. Examples of such data could be coming from cloud Key Management Services, but also about running all our other sensors on applications deployed in such clouds. Capabilities from these sensors are going from dynamic application tracing to network analysis, to which you would also become a valuable contributor.

What You’ll Do

  • Lead the development of dynamic tracing for Cloud Native applications, ensuring high performance and scalability, with additional contributions in similar capabilities for Golang, Rust, and/or Java.
  • Contribute to the ongoing development and optimization of our backend services, focusing on reliability, performance, and security.
  • Analyze and resolve complex performance issues, improving the efficiency of our cybersecurity solutions.
  • Engage in code design and review sessions, promoting best practices in software development within the team.
  • Facilitate the adoption of robust software development practices, enhancing the quality and security of our applications.
  • Mentor and support other developers, aiding in their professional growth and fostering a collaborative team environment.

About You

  • 5-7+ years of experience building software
  • Strong coding skills in several languages
  • In-depth knowledge of cloud architecture, cloud-based file systems 
  • Good understanding of cryptography and PKI ecosystem
  • Experience building, deploying, and maintaining web applications at scale, preferably involving PostgreSQL and GraphQL
  • Motivation to learn about cryptography and how it is used in the industry
  • Familiarity with modern CI/CD practices
  • Ability to translate business requirements into technical solutions
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
