Come Join Our Passionate Team! At Barracuda, we make the world a safer place. We believe every business deserves access to cloud-enabled, enterprise-grade security solutions that are easy to buy, deploy, and use. We protect email, networks, data and applications with innovative solutions that grow and adapt with our customers’ journey.

About the team
Join our Impersonation Protection and Incident Response Engineering team as a Senior Software Engineer, where you'll play a pivotal role in transforming email security amid escalating cyber threats. In 2022, half of all organizations fell prey to social engineering attacks, underscoring the critical need for advanced, proactive defenses.
Our team leads the charge with AI-driven technologies that analyze attack patterns, detect anomalies, and evolve defenses in real-time. We continuously refine email security by leveraging AI to learn from behavioral patterns, significantly reducing false positives.
When email-borne threats breach traditional defenses and reach user inboxes, rapid and accurate response is crucial to mitigate damage and prevent further spread. Manual response methods are time-consuming and inefficient, allowing threats to escalate. Our team automates these processes, swiftly identifying attack vectors, eliminating malicious emails, and executing tailored remediation actions with automated workflows customized to meet specific needs.
Our tech stack is robust, centering on Python and Java, supported by PostgreSQL, DynamoDB, and Redis datastores, orchestrated through Kubernetes on AWS. We harness additional services like Kinesis, SQS, and Lambda to scale our systems effectively.
Join our growing, cross-functional team spanning the US and India, dedicated to developing next-generation solutions that revolutionize email security for billions of mailboxes worldwide. Take the lead in shaping the future of cybersecurity with innovative solutions and proactive defenses.
