About JASK

JASK was founded in 2015 and is headed by industry leaders with decades of experience solving real-world security operations center (SOC) issues.

The JASK team is dedicated to modernizing security operations to reduce organizational risk and improve human efficiency. Through technology consolidation, enhanced AI and machine learning, the JASK Autonomous Security Operations Center (ASOC) platform automates the correlation and analysis of threat alerts, helping SOC analysts focus on highest-priority threats, streamlining investigations and delivering faster response times.

Backed by Kleiner Perkins, Dell Technologies Capital and TenEleven Ventures, JASK is dual-headquartered in San Francisco and Austin.


At JASK, we are building a data platform designed to power the analytics and investigations that are common in the Security Operation Centers of large enterprises. It is designed to accept hundreds of billions of events from security-relevant data sources (detection products, network sensors, log shippers, inventory systems) per day. It is cloud-native, with no plan to support an on-premise deployment. It is multi-tenant, and is designed to simultaneously process events from thousands of our customers. And, it is security-focused — it is designed to perform the kinds of stateful analyses that security analysts demand.

We are building this platform the way startups should — with ruthless prioritization, and with a live and demanding customer base. By joining as a Data Engineer, you have the opportunity to make our vision a reality, one feature at a time.

What You Will be Doing

  • Building, improving, maintaining, and scaling stream processing services.
  • Writing code. Reviewing code. Revising code.
  • Giving feedback on our standards. Holding your team mates to them.
  • Collaborating with teammates on major feature designs. Sometimes, you will own features, sometimes others will.
  • Helping our team grow organically. We value referrals. We value your feedback on candidates.

Who You Are

  • You are a software engineer. (We treat our data systems as software systems, and engineer them accordingly.)
  • You love working with data. (Small data. Big data. All the data.)
  • You are excited to optimize for events per second (not requests per second).
  • You have experience working with (or, at minimum a desire to work with) the technologies we use: Kafka, RocksDB, ElasticSearch, JanusGraph, Postgres, Spark, HBase.
  • You know (and want to write software in) Scala.
  • You love collecting data about your software as much as writing software that collects data. We measure everything. We make data-driven decisions.
  • You are collaborative. Nothing this hard can be accomplished by working alone. We work as a team.


At JASK, we are dedicated to transforming the way organizations manage security operations with legacy solutions. Through innovation, collaboration and teamwork we will drive innovation in autonomous SOC technology.

Our Company Values:

Results. Above all else, we expect results. We honor our commitments. We say what we do and do what we say. We value quantitative measurements over qualitative ones. We deliver results.

Perseverance. We get up after we fall down or get pushed. We never, ever, ever quit.

Collaboration. Consensus building and collaborative planning. All voices should be heard and considered. Only then will decisions be made and acted upon.

Integrity and Respect. Ethics and morals. Respect people of differing ethnicities, cultures, languages, backgrounds, educations, lifestyles, ideas and experiences. We assume positive intent from everyone.

Excellence. Each person should seek excellence in everything they do, every day. Consciously challenge each other to exert their best in their role to advance the company mission.

JASK is most decidedly an equal opportunity employer. We want applicants of diverse background and hire without regard to color, gender, religion, national origin, citizenship, disability, age, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by law
