Senior Data Engineer

017425 Requisition #


The Akamai Carrier Business Unit provide advanced applications for major ISPs around the world that enforce Security at the DNS layer, deployments of DNS, and especially for Security Applications (Akamai SPS) that provide ISPs innovative network-based security products (security, content filtering, messaging). The business has four major data science tasks:

1. Analyze petabytes of DNS/Proxy data that are shared from our ISP customers and constitute the equivalent of a massive honey pot of network-based data to find attacks (on the network (DDOS), phishing, malware).
2. Choose and analyze security feeds and/or content feeds from over 100 partners.
3. Work with other teams at Akamai to incorporate information from our security products into the Carrier products.
4. Work with product management and customers to demonstrate that our products are effective, show value from our 1st party data, find new threats in the data.

In order to deliver on these tasks, we need to develop and deploy an innovative data ingest and data analytics capabilities. Today this consists of using Hadoop/Spark/streaming analysis of the DNS data above, other sources of security information (e.g. VirusTotal data, information from web-crawling suspect domains, etc.), and implementing special purpose Machine Learning algorithms to discover new and evolving threats. Handling the scale of this data and building out these components is a major challenge. This role bridges the gap between our data science team and the real-world application of these algorithms to real production data. This role is for an experienced software engineer who also has experience improving algorithms for machine learning and developing/deploying these algorithms in a cloud environment.

We are looking for self driven engineers who can come up to speed on our technology and build on top of this infrastructure to expand and evolve these services.
