Our Vision

Heard anything about breaches lately? Every week it seems like there's another story about a company being held for ransom or leaking customer data. How do we solve this issue? Enter Blumira!

Our team has spent decades delivering world-class detection and response. We have the platform, the vision, and the team to turn the tide. We’re democratizing good security by making it simple and affordable. Our mission is to empower smaller organizations that have been neglected, priced-out, or, simply—failed—by existing solutions. In helping them, we help their customers, and, overall, make the Internet a safer place.


As a Sr. Engineer at Blumira, you will apply your experience to author and improve new and existing software for our SaaS security product. You take the lead on directing and implementing solutions to moderately complex, loosely scoped problems that are aligned with your team’s goals. You are equally effective working independently and as a leading member of the team. At Blumira, we solve problems quickly to support our customers; you’ll balance a desire for correct, clean, and performant systems with the need to adapt quickly.

  • Build new and maintain existing scalable API microservices that use the Blumira data processing, storage, and detection mechanisms
  • Support infrastructure issues with your fellow engineers and improve automation around internal issue detection and response
  • Use cloud IaaS and PaaS to speed up development time as well as improve scalability and durability
  • Develop proof-of-concept code for new insights and features
  • Help identify and reduce tech debt within the Blumira environment
  • Deploy containerized applications using industry standard methodologies on Kubernetes
  • Communicate effectively, with a willingness to mentor and guide others
  • Help us grow the engineering team by modeling best practices and a friendly culture


Are you someone who’s excited about jumping into something cool and figuring things out without a lot of direct guidance? You’re the kind of person we’re looking for!
