Full-Time Python Engineer (All Levels)

Flashpoint – Posted by Flashpoint Anywhere

Job Description

Company Description:

Flashpoint delivers Business Risk Intelligence (BRI) to empower organizations worldwide with meaningful intelligence and information that combats threats and adversaries. The company’s sophisticated technology, advanced data collections, and human-powered analysis uniquely enables large enterprises and the public sector to bolster cybersecurity, confront fraud, detect insider threats and build insider threat programs, enhance corporate and physical security, improve executive protection, and address vendor risk and supply chain integrity. Flashpoint is backed by Georgian Partners, Greycroft Partners, TechOperators, K2 Intelligence, Jump Capital, Leaders Fund, Bloomberg Beta, and Cisco Investments. For more information, visit or follow us on Twitter at @FlashpointIntel.


What you will do:

At Flashpoint, our architecture is a mix of microservices, event sourcing, API protocols, service teams, and product teams. These support a streaming data pipeline, built with the intention of notifying our customers of nascent threats as soon as possible and giving them the tools to investigate those threats. As a Python Engineer, you will deliver applications in this environment and own the full lifecycle of software development. This includes understanding the product requirements, designing a customer-first solution, writing the code, testing the code, documenting the interface, testing the integration, deploying it to production, and monitoring the deployment.

Beyond your role in the software development lifecycle, you will be a collaborative and selfless teammate. As such, you will leave code cleaner than when you found it. You will ask for help when you need it and over-communicate with your team. You will foster empathy with your teammates by being a mentor and coach as well as grow your own skills from other mentors and coaches.

Understanding the purpose of your software is important to creating a successful product. That’s why you will work closely with the product team as well as cyber threat, fraud, and security experts to immerse yourself in the security domain. No matter what part of the architecture you’re working on, you will understand security threats and where they come from along with who our customers are and what problems they want to solve.


What you will bring:

  • We are hiring for multiple positions, requiring from 1+ years of experience as a Software Engineer to 5+ years of experience
  • Proficiency in Python


The Application

We understand no one wants to cater their application for every single job they’re applying to. However, if you do choose to adjust your resume specifically for this application, here are some guidelines:

  • Your resume should tell a story of how you’ve grown. Which roles have you had and what you learned from each of them (especially if you’ve learned from a mistake)? Were you new to a project contributing to and improving unfamiliar code? Did you become an old hat and have to regularly transfer knowledge to new teammates? Were you a mentor or a learner? Did you drive direction or take in requirements and pump out code?
  • It’s helpful to know what technologies you have experience with as well as how much experience.  The best place for this is often in a dedicated section. This way you can focus each job position on your roles and growth and not have to fit in all the languages and databases you used.
  • All resumes are reviewed by a human so you do not need to include extra keywords to get past a “resume scanner”.
  • If you’re a Senior Engineer, perhaps you’ve been involved in recruiting in the past. Think about what information you find helpful on candidates’ resume and be sure to include it.
  • Cover letters are optional. If you decide to write one, let it show off your personality. It should reflect the voice you’ll use day-to-day on our team. Additionally, feel free to mention anything that makes you a unique asset that’s not already covered by your resume. You can even mention if you’ve changed your resume based on these guidelines.


Why Flashpoint is a Great Place to Work:

Flashpoint Engineering supports a culture of experimentation: you are encouraged to leverage new technologies to solve problems and drive its adoption throughout the department. This is supported by a development model that starts with spikes or small proofs-of-concept and iterates on them to build a mature product. We host regularly-scheduled hackathons to provide even greater opportunity to explore new ideas and we often send engineers to conferences throughout the year. Even when you’re not learning a new software pattern or working with a new technology, at Flashpoint, you will always be building software that supports a meaningful vision: a safe and secure world one step ahead of threats and risk.

Additionally, Flashpoint focuses on the following aspects to build a great work environment:

  • Diversity.  Flashpoint is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity, inclusion, belonging, and equity. We recognize that diversity is key to achieving our vision. We believe that every person and their experiences contribute to building a work environment and a product that will change the world.
  • Culture and Belonging.  Our company’s culture isn’t something you join, it’s something you build and shape, and each person’s unique backgrounds and experiences contribute to who Flashpoint is and will become.  You will have ample opportunities to connect with coworkers through various communication channels and company-funded events: dietary & allergy conscious catered lunches, book clubs, happy hours, committees and much more. 
  • Benefits. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package, including unlimited PTO, 401(K), mental health and wellness benefits, commuter benefits, 12 weeks of paid parental leave for primary caregivers, and 6 weeks of paid parental leave for secondary caregivers.
  • Perks. Health and welfare benefits like gym reimbursements and daily meditation, a well-stocked kitchen, cool cultural initiatives and employee events.
  • Career Growth. Flashpoint is invested in the growth of our team members. You will have regular one-on-ones with your manager, performance review twice yearly, learning and development opportunities, and guidance through formalized career paths, whether that be towards being a great manager, being a great individual contributor, or a lateral move to gain breadth of knowledge and experience.
