Endgame threat research engineer internship

About the team…

Endgame is seeking a Threat Research Engineer intern to begin as soon as January 2018. You will be a part of the Endgame Research and Development team.  Endgame R&D researches emergent security threats and creates capabilities to protect against advanced adversaries.  The team includes data scientists, vulnerability researchers, reverse engineers, adversary experts, seasoned incident responders, threat hunters, and operators.  This diverse team of experts collaborates to produce some of the industry’s most powerful signatureless detection methods, directly powering Endgame’s cybersecurity product.  If you want to perform innovative research and see your creations directly enable Endgame customers to stop attacks, join our team.

About the role…

Join our team for a paid internship through August 2018 in Albuquerque, NM. Through May, we are looking for approximately 20 hours a week shifting to full time for the summer months. Our threat research engineering work is experimental as well as applied, with a focus on collecting and processing massive quantities of data on a continual basis, underpinning and enabling Endgame’s advanced computer security research.  You will develop an understanding of our large-scale data processing architecture, comprised of a combination of commercial, open source, and internally developed tools.   On-site mentorship will be provided, but individuals must be self-motivated and experience with a distributed team is a plus.  If you are eager to understand and enhance large scale data architectures in security, we’d like to hear from you.
