Are you interested in being part of a small team tasked to build the next-generation industry-leading platform for machine data? Splunk is looking for Software Engineers in Test to join the effort to define, build, and test the future of Splunk. You will be joining a team that's developing and driving the security of Splunk in all the environments it is used in, so that our customers can trust us with their data. Your focus will be on ensuring that we continue to ship with high quality, with an emphasis on automated testing.

We give our engineers an environment in which they can contribute from day one while also providing opportunities for learning and growth. You'll learn how our entire stack works - from data ingestion and storage to searching, reporting and building dashboards – all in distributed environments. The work you’ll do will directly impact the experience of our customers.

We are an engineering- and product-focused company. Our engineers take a leading role in designing, architecting, building and testing our product. Engineers at Splunk have a wide impact, from developing new capabilities like metrics ingestion and analysis to working with customers to see their work be used to solve real-world problems.

What we provide:

  • Leadership. You will teach our teams how to develop securely and get into the security mindset by driving our architecture, reviewing new features and capabilities and mentoring engineers.
  • Opportunities to develop and grow as an engineer. We are the forefront of our industry, always expanding into new areas, and working with open source and new technologies.
  • A set of talented and dedicated peers, all the way from engineering and QA to product management and customer support.
  • Breadth and depth. We take the security of our product seriously, and you will be able to help drive a security mindset in many areas. You will develop major authentication and authorization capabilities, secure our data storage and more.
  • Growth and mentorship. We believe in growing engineers through ownership and leadership opportunities. We also believe mentors help both sides of the equation.
  • A stable, collaborative and supportive work environment. We work in an open environment, have a shared kitchen and sit down for a quick sync every morning.
  • Balance. We don't expect people to work 12 hour days. We want you to have a successful time outside of work too. Want to work from home sometimes? No problem. We trust our colleagues to be responsible with their time and commitment, and believe that balance helps cultivate a positive environment.

What you provide:

  • Desire to Learn and Adapt. We have a lot of projects going on at once, and you'll have to learn to navigate the code and features. You'll constantly be learning new areas and new technologies.
  • Passion. Our customers are passionate about Splunk and we want the same from our engineers. We want you to actively own your work and be excited about your projects.
  • Understanding of Systems Programming. Examples of area you may be knowledgeable in may include how threads work, understanding of filesystems, server and kernel architectures, good grasp of data structures and algorithms, etc. You don't need to be an expert, but you should have foundation to build on.
  • Experience with Security. For this role we are looking to up our security game and bring in the engineers who can do that. You have interest in technologies such as SSL/TLS, SAML, X.509, JWT, AES, HMAC and others. You’re familiar with end-to-end security features and products such as authentication/authorization systems.
  • Ability to work with multiple programming languages. We have code in several languages, ranging from Python to C/C++ and Go. Experience with Python is necessary, and you should feel comfortable working in others when the need arises.
