Senior Software Development Engineer in Test

Quality Assurance
020731 Requisition #


The Akamai Carrier Business Unit provides 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 (botnet id, phishing, malware, security, content filtering, messaging). 

As a Senior Software Development Engineer in Test you will be:

• Working as a Testing Expert, which includes:

o Developing test frameworks for existing and new software.

o Measuring performance of applications and suggesting improvements.

Ensuring quality of software developed by Data Engineering Team.

• Working in a team of Data Engineers, which includes:

Working with our data science team to design the best-in-breed threat detection systems (rule-base system, anomaly detection…)

o Implementing automation around attacks detection (DDOS, phishing, malware) which work on petabytes of DNS/Proxy data shared from our ISP customers.

o Contributing to existing tools to extend them with new functions. 

We 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 is suited for individuals with strong data engineering skills, who want to be more focused on ensuring stability, performance and reliability of produced software. We are looking for self-driven engineers who can come up to speed on our technology and help us in building even better software on top of this infrastructure.
