Software Engineer II - Data Engineering Team

020729 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 Data Engineer you will be:

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

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

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

* Improving existing tools by means of performance and resource footprint.

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 bridges the gap between our data science team and the real-world application of these algorithms to real production data. 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.

* Strong written and verbal communication skills.

What might be a plus:

* Degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering or its equivalent.

* Experience in working with data researchers to translate high-level algorithms into scalable, production code.

* Experience with cloud-based deployment techniques (e.g. Docker, Kubernetes, Teraform, etc.).

* Understanding of data modeling and machine learning techniques.

* Strong understanding of how distributed systems are written and work.
