Be part of our journey as we reinvent security operations, and help enterprises say goodbye to “swivel chair security. ”Splunk® Mission Control is a unified cloud-based platform that brings together security data, analytics and operations under one common work surface where security teams can holistically detect, handle, investigate, seek, contain and remediate threats — all from one place — resulting in faster, more efficient and more effective security operations.

The Mission Control Engineering team at Splunk in Vancouver is responsible for the Plugins framework which enable extension of Mission control functionality. We are looking for smart, high-energy, and diligent students to join our team. If you want to make a lasting impact on our Development team, this is the internship for you. Over the course of 4 to 8 months, you will receive hands-on experience, be exposed to different facets of the business, learn new technologies, and have fun while doing so. You will also contribute directly to the production codebase by doing development work in new features. If this gets you excited in your bones, apply today.
