CrowdStrike (www.crowdstrike.com) is a computer security company founded on the principle that effective computer security cannot be achieved without understanding the goals, tactics, and techniques used by determined attackers who can be expected to purposefully and repeatedly pursue their objectives to the detriment of our customers.
CrowdStrike Falcon Host is a two-component security product. One component is a sensor , which is a lightweight agent installed on client machines that observes system activity and recognizes malicious behavior, then provides on-
box prevention capability and remote telemetry to the Falcon Host cloud. The cloud component aggregates sensor telemetry for each customer’s network, can correlate malicious behavior across multiple machines, and presents our customers’ operations teams with a prioritized summary of the threats detected in their environments.
This is a Software Tools Engineer role in the engineering team that delivers the sensor (lightweight agent) on Linux. The sensor is supported on multiple distributions of Linux and ships frequently to support new kernels.
The Tools Engineer owns production of installers and cloud updates of Linux sensor releases in a timely manner, working closely with the rest of the team.
As a Tools Engineer, you'll use your strong technical ability to drive these releases across many different systems and develop repeatable and scalable processes and tools to keep our releases processes on-
time across all supported distributions.
