Job Description

The Opportunity: 

Abnormal Security’s Posture Management & Knowledge Base team is building a suite of products that will allow customers to more easily view, manage, and respond to cyber-security threats. 

Enterprises have thousands of users, documents, vendors, applications and many other entities, with the total number exceeding millions for the large companies. IT administrators today need to:

  • Ensure all of these entities have the right configurations to avoid security vulnerabilities. 
  • Scan the activity history when there’s an incident that requires investigation. 
  • Navigate complicated relationships to identify the root causes for exposures. 

Today, customers deal with these hurdles by reconciling massive amounts of (incomplete) information from disjointed consoles and using other manual tools, but no solution provides a centralized environment to make the necessary information available and actionable. That’s where we come in...

Our newly-formed team is looking to add an API Engineer, who will influence and advance our Security Posture Management & Knowledge Base team, while leading a team of engineers.

What you will build: 

  • A database that will house millions of records that reflect many types of entities, their activities & relations. 
  • A system to ingest data from various sources, to monitor security configuration, and to highlight  exposed vulnerabilities. 

This position is not: 

  • A management position - although, we believe everyone leads by example. We do not see a direct path to a manager role within 1 year.
  • A stepping stone into a Machine Learning engineer role
  • A contract position (full-time applicants only)


  • 3+ years of backend/web development experience
  • Technical Skills
    • Python - 2+ years
    • REST API development - 1+ years
    • AWS Environment - 1+ years
  • Aligned with our VOICE values

  • Experience working with team members across multiple time zones
  • Preferred, but not required technical skills:
    • Django
    • Celery
    • Postgres
    • Airflow

Tech Stack:

  • Language: Python, Go
  • Platform: AWS (Azure in the future) through Terraform, Docker, ECS
  • Frameworks: Django, Celery 
  • Storage: MySQL, Postgres, Parquet, Redis

We offer you: 

  • The opportunity to be part of a truly special team (we have 4.9 stars on both Glassdoor and Gartner Reviews). Our veteran team has built some of the most enduring machine learning platforms at leading companies including Google, Twitter, Pinterest, Amazon, Microsoft, and Expanse. Our customer base includes multiple Fortune 500 companies. 
  • You can learn more about all of our careers and benefits and what makes Abnormal, well, Abnormal, here

Interview Process: 

Our interview process usually starts with a casual call with one of our recruiters who wants to make sure there is alignment, so don’t worry about trying to be perfect before you apply!
