  • Overview

    SolarWinds is the leading global provider of complete IT management and Automation solutions for Managed Service Providers (MSPs). The award-winning N-central® (powered by N-able) is the industry’s #1 RMM Service Automation Platform and has a proven track record of helping MSPs standardize and automate the setup and delivery of IT services in order to achieve true scalability. We believe that the MSPs who use our products everyday should be excited about them. That's why we put our users first in everything we do and strive to deliver powerful functionality while making their jobs easier.

     

    Our success begins with our engineering team's ability to consistently deliver quality software that is easy to install, easy to use, and that solves our customer's pain points. If you enjoy working in a team of smart people and share the same passion for engineering with them we'd love to talk to you!

    Responsibilities

    What would you do?

     

    You will be working on our next innovative product focused on early detection and mitigation of ransomware from the endpoints of our Customers.

    This is an unusual and unique opportunity to shape how the team, process and technology stack will look like – we are building something which we believe will be the next industry-leading
    anti-ransomware solution.

     

    Since this will be a highly focused team consisting of developers, QA Engineers and Security Researchers we need you to be security-oriented geek who loves smashing the stack for fun and profit but also knows how to talk with people.


    What is the tech stack?

     

    C++, MASM/FASM x86
    Cross-platform skills – Windows, Linux if needed for analysis of samples

    The tools we use on daily basis are IDE of your preference, IDA Pro, Wireshark, WinDbg, OllyDbg, PE, etc. and any other tool which you recommend based on your experience that will help us get stuff done better.

    Qualifications

    What do we expect you to know/have?

    You are skilled in Reverse Engineering malware, ransomware and love that job.
    Ideally you already have previous experience in the security area.
    You will work closely with other researchers and software developers – together you will form a highly-skilled group which will be able to produce research results on world class level.

    Most of all we want you to be a security geek who will enjoy developing great products, just as we do.

     

    The responsibilities:

     

    • Help us to create a team which monitors security industry publications, newsgroups, twitter and trends to identify new or active Ransomware families
    • Collaborate with other researchers, developers and stakeholders to improve the protection capabilities of our products
    • Design, implement and optimize product features and functionality, using various technologies and tools such as advanced behavior monitoring
    • Continuously evaluate our development processes to ensure we’re able to rapidly build/deploy secure, scalable, and highly performant products
    • Bachelor’s or higher degree in computer science, or related field, with 3+ years of experience in security/malware research or analysis
    • Strong windows internals and client-side development knowledge
    • Solid reverse engineering skills – experience with tools like Process Explorer, Wireshark, IDA Pro/WinDbg/OllyDbg
    • Strong object-oriented language programming experience
    • Experience with VMware and security testing
    • Good communication skills and an eye for detail - able to perform well under stress, particularly in emergency response situations


    Also, because you are reading this job description in English we hope you have good written and verbal English skills as we are a multinational company.

    What awaits you besides the top technology and great coworkers?

     

    We promote self-education and support you in learning new things – through conferences, certifications and good, strong coffee. You can also enjoy comfortable office spaces with free and tasty coffee, snacks, game room, soft chairs and PS4, but who would like to do that if you can spend some time doing analysis of most recent malware family.

    However, you can bike to work and find colleagues who do same sports as you do. We provide MultiSport, flexible working hours, private health insurance and fruits in the kitchen. Last but not least among the many benefits are a competitive salary, bonuses, and growth opportunities.
