WHAT WE DO MATTERS

We have big plans for continued global growth, and we’re looking for people who are creative, flexible and dedicated to helping us build something great – something that matters.

We give the power to every member of the team when we invite all developers, engineers and researchers to our own internal developer off site hackathon, where they compete to create the next great thing – a functional prototype, related to our technology, that makes our operations better.

Your ideas may become a reality – and even change the future of security.

Principal Software Engineer

Columbia Gateway Drive | Columbia | Maryland | United States | 21046

Your Role:

Do you have a passion for software engineering and desire a high-impact, empowered role to help shape a product at a rapidly growing SaaS company? We're looking for a Principal Software Engineer who is motivated and ready to jump into a fast-paced environment and help us deliver the best web application scanning product we can. We're a small, but growing, team of engineers that build products primarily in Ruby to crawl through, detect and identify vulnerabilities in these apps at scale.  Our system's core architecture is an event driven system that relies on Kafka and we are building new pieces of our engine in Scala. We adhere to DevOps methodology relentlessly and have enabled the team to be fully autonomous.

Your Opportunity:

  • Growth and Development: As part of working on a small team, you'll have a broad scope and an opportunity to grow as a software engineer. You will team up with engineers to drive initiatives, define architecture, and build new features.
  • Collaboration: Work closely with Product Managers, other engineers, designers, and stakeholders to continuously iterate on our Web Application Scanner and Scanning Experience.
  • Creativity: We welcome engineers that are motivated and come up with their own ideas to help us build a better product.
  • Architecture & Design: Help with design decisions and ability to understand and improve our engine performance and stability.

What you'll need:

  • BS/MS in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or related (or equivalent experience)
  • 5+ years of advance coding in one or more languages: Java, Scala, Ruby, Python, or another similar language
  • Development experience with service-oriented architectures/microservices
  • Excellent troubleshooting and problem-solving skills
  • Dev-Ops experience is a bonus

We’re committed to promoting Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) at Tenable - through all equal employment opportunity laws and regulations at the international, federal, state and local levels.
