About Lacework

Lacework delivers threat/anomaly detection and compliance across multicloud environments, workloads, containers and K8s.

Job Description

Cloud computing is revolutionizing IT and forcing organizations to rethink their approach to cloud security. Lacework is at the forefront of this transformation. We enable security teams to effectively secure public and private clouds – AWS, Azure or collocations – by eliminating repetitive, manual and labor-intensive security tasks. Using Lacework, security teams operate security at the same pace as DevOps, which relies on automated tools to publish daily updates to the cloud.

Lacework is led by an experienced team who have built large scale systems at Google, Paraccel (Amazon Redshift), Pure Storage, Oracle, and Juniper networks. Lacework is well funded by a tier-one VC firm and is based in San Jose, CA.


Our team is growing, and we are looking for a Senior SRE with a passion for automation. You will help support the Lacework service and play a key role in building, operating, and improving the Lacework Cloud Security Platform, the world's best real-time cloud-native threat detection system.

Our team develops and supports services that perform automated operations in order to scale the Lacework infrastructure & service. To do that, we build and support observability tooling and work with engineering to continually build more telemetry and observability into the services. To be successful you will conceive, define develop, deploy and operate internal tooling, APIs, and frameworks which streamline our workflows and automate our infrastructure,

You will provide top tier support for our services and keep them highly available. You know that the only thing that matters is Customer Happiness.

Your Role:
  • Automation. Automation. Automation.
  • Identify problems, develop and maintain solutions and processes that will help drive improvements towards automating Lacework's service and infrastructure.
  • As a senior member of the team, you'll use both technical and relational skills to lead large scale projects to completion
  • Develop in-house services/API's using Python, Go or Java
  • Help in designing and developing frameworks and API's that enable functionality for the entire Engineering organization
  • Drive technology decisions for Lacework infrastructure tooling technology stack
  • Evangelize good code and solid engineering practices
  • 5+ years of experience in an Operations/SRE role or sufficiently senior experience.
  • Several years of coding experience in Python, Go or Java. Experience in one is great, two is awesome and all three would be spectacular!
  • Strong troubleshooting skills to keep our services highly available.
  • A keen eye for identifying technical or process improvements to stop issues before they hit production.
  • An ability to take gaps in the service or gaps in telemetry and augment the system.
  • You have experience deploying and maintaining production services using Kubernetes.
  • You demonstrate knowledge of cloud architecture security, scaling, and management principles and have experience working with AWS, GCE or Azure cloud infrastructures
  • A deep and abiding love of Linux. Or a respectful hatred for it. Either way, you'll need to be able to sed/awk/grep like a pro.
  • Strong experience with large scale Infrastructure, distributed systems, and application performance.
  • You thrive in open environments that encourage education, cooperation, and teamwork.
  • You have a passion for learning and adopting new technologies with a focus on finding the right tool for the job.
  • Desire to "build for lazy" and build systems and computers that reason for us
  • Experience with Java application servers and JVM configuration
  • Experience with monitoring & observability systems like Prometheus or DataDog and tools or frameworks like telegraf and OpenTracing
  • Believe everything should be "as code"
