Why You Matter
We're looking for an experienced Rust engineer with Linux development experience to join the Red Canary engineering team. You will build highly reliable software that collects high volume security telemetry from Linux servers, generating rich security telemetry that we use to identify and stop threats affecting our customers.
We use Rust as the principal language for developing our security telemetry collection software because it provides a safe and modern toolchain for producing high-quality software.

As a Senior engineer on our endpoint telemetry collection team, you will design and implement features to support telemetry collection and new detection capabilities. You'll have the opportunity to interface directly with customers, helping them troubleshoot issues and working on designing features that meet their needs. In this role, you may work from our Denver office or remote.
Please note, different companies have different philosophies on titles and levels. If your title is/was Staff or Principal, you may still be a good fit for this role.

An Insider's view of Red Canary

What's something quirky about your company?

There’s a thing we do at Red Canary called BEASTMODE. On a quarterly basis, everyone comes to Denver and we spend three intense days together.The reason it’s called BEASTMODE is that in the very early days of the company, we’d spend endless hours in a single room, fueled by ample amounts of caffeine, building a company of which we could be proud.

Dave

Director, Customer Success

What projects are you most excited about?

The Cyber Incident Response Team (CIRT) reached the milestone of 10,000 spec/unit tests to validate our detection logic, an indicator of how diligently we maintain our detectors. Continued validation that everything is working as anticipated is key to ensuring a successful security program.

Joe

VP, Customer Security Operations

What makes someone successful on your team?

Providing such an exceptional level of support and care that our customers renew and expand their commitment to partnering with us. I hope that the Red Canary level of post-sale support becomes the model our competitors and partners are chasing.

Stacie

VP, Customer Care

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As we continue to grow and add specialized focus across digital media, video, and an even more robust content program, I want the team to be able to take all the great insights and educational pieces and recommendations and make it easy for people to find them, understand them, and implement them. To be able to use what we’re doing in marketing in

Brianne

Director, Marketing

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I am most proud of the fact that the culture of the team has not only stayed in tact, but has matured and elevated, despite the rapid growth. Senior team members constantly go out of their way to ensure that new CSEs are welcomed, growing, and set up for success. Success is rooted in team dynamics and culture.
