We’re looking for builders. People that like to get their hands dirty creating something from scratch. We don’t actually know how many security startups our team members have helped launch, but it’s a lot. RSA, ArcSight, VeriSign, Imperva, Riptech, Solera and Cloudmark are a few you might recognize. We’ve led change initiatives for multinationals. We’ve reinvented whole technologies. And now we’re reinventing security, around Intelligence. Somebody has to — because security-as-usual isn’t working. Join us.
Norse is seeking a Machine Learning/Data Mining developer to be part of our Security Engineering team. Determine and extract the most valuable data for detecting malicious activity across multiple threat vectors. Use machine-learning techniques to train classifiers and methods to keep them tuned. Create and monitor processes that apply classifiers to detect malicious activity and protect customers.

  • Bonus: Network Security

Preferred Skills:
