Job Description

Software Engineer

Blue Hexagon is looking for a full stack systems software engineer to build and deploy cutting edge security applications at scale.

You are excited by the prospect of working in a high-energy environment at a premier VC-backed early stage startup. You have strong algorithms and data structures knowledge, and enjoy taking on and solving challenging technical problems. You do not hesitate to cut across layers of the software stack, be it to do root cause analysis or to implement an efficient solution to a hard problem. If a problem is best solved by writing a linux kernel module, that’s what you will do (with the glad assistance of your teammates). If a problem is best solved by writing a web cache in javascript, that’s what you will do (again, with the glad assistance of your teammates). You think of software engineering as an art, and take pride in the quality of your code from its inception to deployment to user feedback and iteration.

Blue Hexagon is a premier VC-backed early stage startup and offers competitive equity and pay packages as well as medical, dental, vision, 401k, flex hours, company outings, munchies and amazing teammates. Your teammates have worked at Amazon, Intel, Microsoft, Cisco, Palo Alto Networks and Qualcomm and studied at schools like Stanford, Princeton, CMU, MIT, Georgia Tech, Purdue and Berkeley.

You must have the passion and ability to take complete ownership of tasks, become the subject matter expert in the team, and be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment at an early stage company.
