About us

While Forcepoint has many products, the focus for this position is working on our User & Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) product, which is responsible for collecting and analyzing the digital exhaust that users produce (web logs, communications, logins, etc) in order to detect illegal, unwanted, or harmful behavior.

The New York City office is conveniently situated near several subway lines, in the Flatiron neighborhood, and is close to many restaurants and stores, and employees in this office are eligible for commuter benefits. Join your fellow co-workers for the occasional game night, bagel Fridays (unless we vote to change to some other food type!), and make use of our video conference rooms to communicate with other offices.

Our User Interface is a very modern JavaScript application (Node, React, Redux, etc), interfacing with RESTful APIs that provide the data and perform the analytics. We enjoy investigating new technologies and are not afraid of change.

What you will be doing

You will be part of a team working on new features and improvements to the User Interface. You will work closely with other teams, based in Baltimore, MD and abroad, that are responsible for the back-end services and analytics. If you want some specifics:

* Actively develop new features or improvements to the product

* Provide feedback on product and design requirements

* Take part in reviewing and testing code changes from other team members

* Work closely with the UX Design team on requirements and use cases

* Assist in prototyping new features and/or investigating new technologies

* Remotely interface with the Engineering Leads and Software Developers in other offices who are responsible for the data and analytic back-ends to work out requirements and planning

The ideal candidate should...

* Have at least 2 years of work experience as a software engineer (any language)

* Have strong experience with server-side and client-side JavaScript libraries and frameworks (like Node.js, React.js, Redux.js, Next.js, GraphQL, Apollo, etc)

* Have strong knowledge of web technologies and concepts (like RESTful APIs, web servers, single sign-on implementations, etc)

* Have experience managing client-side state and knowledge of how to address issues that might arise

* Have a strong work ethic

* Experience working with version control, preferably Git
