About Blumira and Our Culture

By making detection and response rapid, simple, and affordable, we can help organizations of all sizes - especially small and medium-sized businesses - which 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. We have a platform, a vision, and a team that can turn the tide. To realize our vision, we're looking for inquisitive and driven teammates, like you! Be part of a friendly and supportive team that embraces who you are and offers you the opportunity to help build and scale the Ann Arbor tech security scene and to learn and grow with experienced SaaS security leaders. You will have the ability to make a big impact in the initial build of Blumira’s Engineering organization and take Blumira to the next level!

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.
