Backend Lead / Architect

At Balbix, we are building a third-generation cybersecurity platform which uses deep learning and other advanced ML algorithms to help enterprise security teams proactively avoid cyber breaches.

Our product is built around data, lots of it. This is a platform that is capable of ingesting all forms of data from an enterprise. This includes data from traffic, software stack, enterprise policies, log data from infrastructure, event data from security controls among several others. This provides us with an incredibly rich dataset to transform, analyze and convert into prioritized actionable risk information.

We use our expertise in multiple disciplines from AI, machine learning, statistics and probabilistic methods to transform data into actionable intelligence for our customers. 

As a Backend Lead / Architect, you will be expected to take ownership of and build a complex, scalable data storage and processing pipeline. You will need to demonstrate strong leadership and communication skills to successfully execute on the engineering priorities in an agile, high-velocity development environment. We are attracted to people who are curious, quick-learners, self-driven and take immense pride in their work.

Balbix’s workloads are varied and specialized. Our technology and architecture must adapt to the diverse needs of our data applications. The architectures we build should be able to scale to peta-bytes of data serving near real-time as well as massive batch jobs. AI is at the core of our product and we incorporate the latest advances in machine learning and data science such as graph based deep learning on enterprise networks. This requires having a breadth and depth of knowledge of database technologies:

  • Relational databases such as PostgreSQL
  • Key-Value and document store NoSQL databases such as MongoDB, Cassandra
  • Search engine database such as ElasticSearch
  • Time-series databases such as InfluxDB, Druid, Prometheus.
  • In-memory databases
  • Distributed data storage and data warehousing concepts and technologies
  • Cloud-computing based database and storage services on various cloud providers
  • Security best practices and design principles

In addition to the core competency of building database and storage architectures, expertise in the following competencies are highly desired:

  • Containerized applications and scalable micro-services
  • CI/CD
