More about SecOps

The Elastic SecOps team is building a new solution that will become the center of the Elastic security analytics offerings. The Elastic stack is already very popular among the security analyst community, and the SecOps team has the opportunity to significantly improve the user experience and workflows of security analysts. Challenges include collecting all the relevant data, aggregating and visualising it, detecting and alerting on suspicious events, as well as supporting the investigation phase.

The SecOps team is diverse and distributed. You will be working remotely with people from Germany, Spain, United States, UK, and more. We meet via Zoom, brainstorm in Google docs, discuss in open GitHub issues, and chat on Slack.

  • Write and maintain high-quality Golang code.
  • Expand the Beats open source projects (especially Auditbeat and Winlogbeat) to collect security relevant data from the Windows platform.
  • Use operating system APIs to get data about processes, containers, sockets, etc.
  • Work with our support team to help customers and answer community questions.

Required skills:

  • Experience with developing and maintaining reasonably complex software projects with high quality and over multiple years.
  • Very good familiarity with the Windows environment in general.
  • Experience programming with the Windows APIs.
  • Experience with system level programming and APIs, ideally in Golang.
  • Interest and experience in various types of automatic testing.
  • Experience in the security space is a plus.
  • Ability to work in a distributed team throughout the world.
