About Netskope

Today, there’s more data and users outside the enterprise than inside, causing the network perimeter as we know it to dissolve. We realized a new perimeter was needed, one that is built in the cloud and follows and protects data wherever it goes, so we started Netskope to redefine Cloud, Network and Data Security. 

Since 2012, we have built the market-leading cloud security company and an award-winning culture powered by hundreds of employees spread across offices in Santa Clara, San Francisco, Seattle, Bangalore, London, Melbourne, and Tokyo. Our core values are openness, honesty, and transparency, and we purposely developed our open desk layouts and large meeting spaces to support and promote partnerships, collaboration, and teamwork. From catered lunches and office celebrations to employee recognition events and social professional groups such as the Awesome Women of Netskope (AWON), we strive to keep work fun, supportive and interactive.  Visit us at and follow us on Twitter @Netskope and Facebook.

We are looking for a Staff Software Engineer to join the Netskope Labs Advanced Development group to help accelerate growth through innovation. This Advanced Development group is responsible for the research and development of new technologies and architectures for key strategic initiatives. You will be well suited to this role if you are a passionate engineer who takes pride in driving new features from inception through release and is excited about tackling complex distributed systems problems at massive scale.


  • Architect and implement critical software infrastructure for distributed large-scale multi-cloud environments.
  • Review architectures and designs across the organization to help guide other engineers to build scalable cloud services.
  • Provide technical leadership and strategic direction for large-scale distributed cloud-native solutions.
  • Be a catalyst for improving engineering processes and ownership.
  • Research, incubate, and drive new technologies to ensure we are leveraging the latest innovations.


  • 8+ years of experience in the field of software development
  • Experience building and delivering cloud microservices at scale
  • Expert understanding of distributed systems, data structures, and algorithms
  • A skilled problem solver well-versed in considering and making technical tradeoffs
  • A strong communicator who can quickly pick up new concepts and domains
  • Golang knowledge is a bonus, as is experience with TypeScript, Javascript and Node.js


  • BS or MS in Computer Science or equivalent technical degree (MS Preferred)
