    About SpiderOak Engineering

    Our Engineering team is comprised of passionate and creative people who are committed to the premise that complexity is the enemy of security. The problem of security will not be solved by layering on more band-aids, e.g. firewalls, packet inspection, two-factor authentication, etc… these actually add complexity by increasing the attack surface. We take a fundamentally different approach by removing the need to trust your infrastructure or your admins through the combination of

    • Zero-trust systems and applied cryptography
    • Distributed ledger

    Our platform and applications – built on Go – enable our customers to collaborate and communicate securely, and we’re looking for growing the team to help us turn this ambitious vision into reality. Our culture is focused on productivity and creativity, and we’re committed to collaboration with our colleagues across the organization.

    Job Description

    Rather than bore you with a long description, let’s cut to chase: your job is to implement distributed services in Go. Some of the specifications will be already written, but others will require you to design new services in partnership with our Security Architects. Additionally, you will iterate over our current codebase to improve it and fix bugs.

    Experience & Skills

    Simply put: you need prior experience in developing in Go. You also should have a desire to work with remote, distributed teams.

    NOTE: Given the nature of our work, candidates must be US Citizens residing in the United States.
