Compiler Developer United States

Company: CrowdStrike

We're looking for a talented colleague to join our small language and data tools team. The ontology team at Crowdstrike researches, develops, and maintains tooling central to the data model used throughout our engineering department, including custom languages and compiler environments. Our team actively collaborates with most other groups on major initiatives within engineering, including the sensor and cloud teams.

Our team is highly distributed with most people working remotely on flexible hours, though coordination with other team members is expected. Occasional travel required. The Ontology team’ core office is in Minneapolis MN, and Crowdstrike also has engineering offices in Kirkland WA, Sunnyvale CA, Irvine CA, and Arlington VA, for those who prefer office life.

CrowdStrike is a computer security company, but we do not expect candidates for this role to have prior security industry experience. We will mentor/train in aspects of the security world as required. We do expect a strong interest in CrowdStrike's mission and a willingness to grow into a position consulting on system design decisions and coordinating with other teams across the company.
