Does the thought of building scalable, reliable, cloud-native applications excite you?  Have you worked on large complex projects in the past and want to have a larger impact on a smaller, growing team?  Do you love mentoring and training other engineers to level-up their skills and build a dynamic team? Are you interested in building technology that helps organizations detect and respond to cybersecurity threats before they become headline-worthy breaches?  If you answered yes to these questions then we have the job for you!

At Soteria (, we believe there is a massive opportunity to improve the way that organizations approach security operations, and we are building the solution. We often find that folks place too much emphasis on tools and processes that are not grounded in reality or scalable, and are unable to hire, groom or train talent to keep up with the ever-evolving threats. This leads to an endless sea of false positives, reliance on brittle detection logic, and tons of missed intrusions. Soteria is looking to shake up the industry with our managed detection and response (MDR) service using behavior-based rules and analytics approach, human in the loop alerting and validation, top-notch personnel, and interdisciplinary processes.

You will be expected to be proactive in identifying issues and developing solutions, making other engineers and employees better, and learning from the expertise of those working alongside you.
