Position: Senior Software Engineer (Networking) - Emerging Technology

Location: Chandigarh, India   

The Senior Software Engineer will work on building the next generation Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) product and Shift product in the Emerging Technology group. 

The Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) service enables organizations to provide access to internal applications and services while ensuring the security of their networks. ZPA is an easier to deploy, more cost-effective, and more secure alternative to VPNs. Unlike VPNs, which require users to connect to your network to access your enterprise applications, ZPA allows you to give users policy-based secure access only to the internal apps they need to get their work done. With ZPA, application access does not require network access.

The Zscaler Shift is an easy-to-use, cloud service that provides carrier-grade security and compliance for your organization's network. It can be configured in minutes by setting Domain Name Service (DNS) to Shift. From there, Shift intelligently routes all suspicious traffic to the Zscaler cloud security platform for full in-line content inspection. This offers multiple security features including content filtering, threat security, Safe Search, and SSL inspection. In addition, Zscaler's Advanced Threat Protection blocks malicious active content, such as browser exploits, vulnerable ActiveX controls, malicious JavaScript, and cross-site scripting. 

Many organizations are just beginning to realize the amazing power and efficiencies enabled by the cloud. But our teams have been there for years, and our Emerging Technologies team has been at the forefront of cloud technology, developing innovative tools and systems that are giving customers better visibility and security than they’ve ever had.
