Job Description

The Role

You will be joining at an exciting time, as the team prepares to scale the Tessian product following the Proofpoint acquisition. Tessian protects every business’s mission by securing the human layer.

We’re building intelligent security that works for human beings as they are, not how security policies would like them to be. The Tessian Cloud Email Security platform helps enterprises defend against email attacks, protect against data loss, and respond to security incidents more efficiently.

Using machine learning technology, Tessian automatically predicts and eliminates advanced threats on email caused by human error, such as data exfiltration, accidental data loss, business email compromise, and phishing attacks .

We’re growing and are looking for new team members to help us build something special. Having found exceptional product/market fit for our category-defining Human Layer Security software platform, we’re looking to capitalize on the huge demand for our product.

Your day-to-day

We‘re looking for a Staff Engineer to join one of the key teams behind Tessian Defender, protecting our customers from the full spectrum of inbound email attacks. In this role, you will work cross-functionally to deliver:

  • Engage with the world of Python 3 and AWS, architecting robust distributed systems designed to manage immense volumes of data with exceptional speed.
  • Collaborate across various functions, harnessing team synergy to deliver premium solutions and outcomes for our esteemed customers.
  • Apply your keen product mindset and tech savvy to help shape Defender's future, contributing to our progressive vision.
  • Cultivate a supportive environment by providing thoughtful, actionable feedback, fostering growth and development among team members.
  • Embrace the responsibility of maintaining and supporting our essential business systems, always mindful of the interplay between scale, latency, and cost.
  • Take on the complex task of processing highly sensitive data, a challenge that will refine your skills in data security and handling.

What you bring to the team

  • Extensive Python and AWS experience
  • You will bring experience of working at scale, and having seen and solved diverse technical challenges in your career
  • A product focus: you understand deeply how customers and the wider org are impacted by your decisions, and the work of those you influence
  • Someone who is able to “see around corners” and proactively identify problems before they slow us down
  • An excellent communicator, able to empathetically communicate and constructively challenge in both technical and non-technical contexts to a diverse audience

Why Proofpoint

Protecting people is at the heart of our award-winning cybersecurity solutions, and the people who work here are the key to our success. We’re a customer-focused and driven-to-win organisation with leading-edge products. We are an inclusive, diverse, multinational company that believes in culture fit, but more importantly ‘culture-add’, and we strongly encourage people from all walks of life to apply.
