Objectives

You make CrowdSec as easy to deploy, use and integrate as possible for as many technical stacks as possible.

You help identifying the relevant features and changes based on user feedback, to maximize efficiency and accessibility.

You contribute to team growth and software development.

Missions

  • Package for various targets (Linux distributions, containers etc.)
  • Help integrate CrowdSec on new platforms (K8s, Docker, AWS/GCP etc.)
  • Lead and coordinate integration of CrowdSec into technical stacks: package availability,  common architectures compatibility (including bouncers), scenario relevance
  • Coordinate software changes with other teams to ensure compatibility with given environments and easy update / repackage / recompilation over time
  • Work with the community manager to identify relevant stacks to target
  • Be able to put yourself into a given persona’s shoes to understand usual pain points and reflect on needed changes

What we are up to

We aim to rebalance the global game of cybersecurity through a collaborative approach. Our mission is to deter opportunist and organized Cybercrime, through an Internet scale, real time, security network. This network is powered by thousands of users, sharing with one another the aggression they blocked with our open-source software. By coupling this local behavior analysis (think 2021 fail2ban) and sharing its findings within our community, we create a Crowd Sourced Cyber Threat Intelligence of unprecedented magnitude, that will counter the vast majority of technical hacks. 

Who we are

CrowdSec is a well-financed, human-sized team of experts in cybersecurity. Most of the team works remotely since day 1. Our software is used in a little less than 100 countries worldwide by thousands of users and we intend to get millions of them. By providing collaborative security tools, we will protect everyone. We are animated by a mission: making the Internet a safer place, all together.

What you get

Good wages, stock options, an eye opening, behind-the-curtain, adventure in the field of cyber security, experience sharing with repeat entrepreneurs and a job with a greater purpose. Good chances you could be part of an industry-defining adventure, in its early days.

The role at a glance

At CrowdSec, our priority is to deliver great, robust, and versatile open source software to offer digital protection to the greatest number. Our community is our greatest strength and by growing it, we will outnumber hackers. Eager to tackle the biggest challenge of this decade?

Our mission is to deter opportunist and organized cybercrime, through an Internet scale, real-time security network. This network is powered by thousands of users, sharing with one another the aggression they blocked with our open-source software. By coupling this local behavior analysis (think 2021 fail2ban) and sharing its findings within our community, we create a giant hacker interferometer, a large scale reputation system, a Crowd Sourced Cyber Threat Intelligence of unprecedented magnitude, that will counter the vast majority of technical hacks. 

You’re part of the core team to ensure that CrowdSec can run and be relevant on as many platforms as possible. You own the packaging and technical distribution topic. When being asked “does CrowdSec runs on $tech_stack?”, you will make sure the answer is always “yes”. To achieve this goal this, you’ll either experiment yourself and build reliable designs, or discuss with other team members to agree on necessary changes. You are as well implicated in the automation of the various repositories we provide to our users and are very active in the maintenance of our Hub (see https://hub.crowdsec.net). 

In this mission to bring the product to as many users as possible, you’re not alone. You will team up with our Community manager who identifies user groups needs, using technical solutions that do not yet have access to CrowdSec but would greatly benefit from it. He will discover the need, you will answer it in a timely manner. This could cover compiling for another platform, shipping a customized docker image, assembling a package or developing some line of codes in frequently used languages to facilitate integration. You’re technically versatile, like exploring and automating. User satisfaction is your first concern and taking some days to dive in a new framework or package format is your thing.
