BitSight is looking for an experienced Big Data Engineer to join our engineering team. We pride ourselves in building exceptional career opportunities and offering outstanding benefits to our team. We have the enthusiasm of a start-up but the structure and solidity of a mature industry leader.
BitSight’s mission is to make the online world a safer place by helping governments, companies and NGOs understand and mitigate their cybersecurity risks. Ours is an internet-scale challenge - we track every IP address, every piece of malware, and a good portion of the world’s internet traffic.
BitSight’s data pipeline is the core of our Security Ratings product. We ingest security-related intelligence data from many sources, feed terabytes of data into a proprietary rating algorithm, and deliver ratings for over 1,000,000 organizations on a daily basis. Built on the highly scalable AWS ecosystem, our pipeline code base meets the highest standards of reliability and scalability to deliver consistent, actionable, intuitive, and responsive ratings to the customer.

Working with a close-knit team across multiple locations, you will help us architect and evolve the pipeline to support even larger volumes via cloud data warehouses.

Collaborating with data science and research teams, you will build trust with BitSight customers in the quality and integrity of our data.
