Splunk is looking for a Principal Security Software Engineer to work on significant problems in securing the core Splunk engine.

- You'll collaborate closely with PM and other engineers to understand customer needs and translate them into product features.
- You'll participate in development of project timelines, implementation design specifications, system flow diagrams, documentation, testing and ongoing support of systems.
- You'll guide and mentor other software engineers specially focusing on software design and architecture
- You'll maintain and improve existing code with a pride of ownership.
- You'll lead large projects and be self-driven
- 8+ years total development experience
- Extensive software engineering experience in C++ (Python is a plus)
- Experience in advanced development, especially in distributed systems and large, complex system environments deployed at scale
- Experience in building authentication, authorization, and data security end-to-end products or features
- Some experience working with security technologies (SSL/TLS/X.509/SAML/OAuth/JWT/KMIP/PKCS#11/, etc..)
- Some experience with low level cryptographic mechanisms like (AES/GCM/PBKDF2/HMAC/SHA2/ etc..)
BS, MS or PhD in Computer Science or related engineering discipline, with security emphasis highly preferred.
