TalonX Careers

Senior Software Engineer & Technical Lead

Type of Job

Full Time

About the job

We are an early stage company in the Security Automation space operating in stealth. We are founded and led by experts in security software products and services, with extensive experience at venture-backed startups and decades of security domain experience. We have identified an important gap in the market and are gearing up to fill this gap.

Our solution requires constructing a challenging system from the ground up. This will be a cloud-based SaaS asynchronous system that will eventually need to run at scale.

You’ll be a good match if you relish the opportunity to build a greenfield product that incorporates all that you’ve learned from your past experiences. There are important decisions to make and code to be written, and that’s where you come in. We are looking for a technical leader. We have settled on AWS, Linux and Python but almost everything else will be determined by our early engineers. You’ll be deep into hands-on coding day to day while providing leadership to more junior engineers.

Come shape the first versions of our products and technologies!


You’ll need this background in order to be successful in the role:

  • 8+ years experience overall

  • Significant experience developing Enterprise SaaS systems with high complexity and scale. We want you to take what you’ve learned and leverage it in a ground-up development effort

  • Significant experience in cloud-based development and operation - preferably AWS

  • Several years experience in Java

  • Experience in an early-phase startup. This doesn’t have to be all or even a large part of your career, but we need someone who has startup DNA

  • Leadership ability. We are looking for an engineer who can set direction and create buy-in and passion along the way

  • Excitement at the prospect of building something from the ground up. Comfortable helping set the direction for the company, product and technology

Preferred Requirements

The more of these the better, but none are required:

  • Experience with Python

  • Experience with Machine Learning / AI

  • Experience colloquial with remote teams

  • Experience with security software and systems

  • Experience developing complex schemas to support complex customer and business use cases

  • Experience in a Technical Lead role

  • Experience building from the ground up in a startup environment
