  • Overview

    Solarwinds MSP is seeking a talented Technical Lead Developer to join our Engineering team to take part in development of our Web Protection product that is a part of Solarwinds MSP RMM family.


    Web Protection is a solution that protects end-users from connecting to malicious or otherwise undesirable websites in order to keep company networks and devices free from potential outbreaks and maintain a productive workforce.


    As part of our layered security offering, Web Protection is the first line of defense for avoiding malware, phishing, adware, botnets and spam. Customers can also monitor their network bandwidth to spot any anomalies that could indicate a compromised workstation or server. With customizable policies, users can choose to avoid certain categories of sites, sites with poor reputations, set their own whitelists and blacklists, schedule access to productivity killing sites to outside of business hours, and view detailed reports of web traffic behavior across their client base.

    Position overview
    As a Technical Lead Developer on the Web Protection project, you will be responsible for maintaining and enhancing the main application that runs on over 300,000 endpoints.

    The Web Protection Agent consists of the follow components that you will need to become familiar with:

    • Windows Service Application (C#)
    • Windows System Tray Application (C#)

    The application must be performant and have a minimal footprint on the end-user’s browsing experience, system memory and CPU, whilst still providing accurate security against malware and other undesirable web traffic.

    As an example, new features could include:

    • Design and implement a better user experience of handling blocked HTTPS sites, which requires knowledge of SSL handshakes and encryption. 
    • Optimize packet inspection and decision making for improved speed and performance
    • Collecting user-centric browsing data and report back through the API.
