At Palo Alto Networks® everything starts and ends with our mission:
Being the cybersecurity partner of choice, protecting our digital way of life.
We have the vision of a world where each day is safer and more secure than the one before. These aren’t easy goals to accomplish – but we’re not here for easy. We’re here for better. We are a company built on the foundation of challenging and disrupting the way things are done, and we’re looking for innovators who are as committed to shaping the future of cybersecurity as we are.
We are looking for a motivated, intelligent, hardworking and creative candidate to join the Cortex XSOAR (formerly Demisto) team as a Software Engineer. As a Software Engineer, you will be part of a team that helps our Content group succeed by building on top of the Cortex XSOAR platform. This is a highly technical, hands-on role where you’ll be coding and into the bits and bytes on a daily basis. And this is a cross functional role; you’ll be working with Business Development, Product Management, Customer Success, Engineering, Security Architecture, Marketing, and others. You’ll report into the Engineering organization. This is a super opportunity to get deeper in the cybersecurity space, learn new technologies, network and build a huge list of contacts in the space, and see how a successful ~$4B company operates.
This is an externally-facing role: you’ll work directly with hundreds of current, cutting-edge cybersecurity vendors – from startups to giants – to define relevant use cases, scope and build a Cortex XSOAR integration, guide them through our engineering process and be their primary contact for technical questions.
Involved in the full development lifecycle: review architecture design documents, assist in build and test, and support content being pushed out to hundreds of customers.
Work directly with Technology Vendors (partners) on product use cases, API documentation questions, instance setup requests. Learn their product and discuss potential integration points.
Work directly with customers/prospects to validate use cases and integration requests.
Define how customers will use our partner integrations.
Develop information security and incident response workflows, procedures and best practices and publish them as playbooks.
Create new processes to streamline your job and/or the partner’s experience.
Advocate and interact with product management and research regularly.
B.Sc in Computer Science or an equivalent degree
Be familiar with Hands-on programming skills in Python. This is a highly-technical hands-on role.
Be familiar with GitHub including Issues, Pull Requests, branches, forking, etc.
Basic cybersecurity market and/or products experience (such as SIEM, FW, EDR, sandboxes, Vulnerability Management, etc.) – An advantage
High energy and the ability to work in a fast-paced environment
Organized and methodical – we are literally working and tracking ~50 different partners at a time
Self starter and can work independently – we are a distributed global team so you need to work independently, know when you need help and speak up
Strong collaboration and communication skills – you will represent Palo Alto Networks with dozens of vendors in the cybersecurity space.
This is an Early in Career role and is aimed at candidates who have recently completed their studies.
Our engineering team is at the core of our products and connected directly to the mission of preventing cyber attacks. We are constantly innovating — challenging the way we, and the industry, think about cybersecurity. Our engineers don’t shy away from building products to solve problems no one has pursued before. We define the industry instead of waiting for directions. We need individuals who feel comfortable in ambiguity, excited by the prospect of a challenge, and empowered by the unknown risks facing our everyday lives that are only enabled by a secure digital environment.
