What You'll Be Building
InsightIDR is a cloud-based, microservice-designed architecture built with the mandate to ingest, monitor, and review log data from an organization's environment in real time in order to raise the alarm if and when attackers hack their way into their network. In security terms, we are committed to providing Blue Team defenders the best tools in the industry to detect and respond to attacks. We've achieved a lot - InsightIDR is already acknowledged as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for our industry - but the threat landscape is always evolving, and we must continue to grow and improve our product along with it.
Our microservices are built on top of AWS technology designed to scale horizontally as our data processing requirements continue to grow. You'll be working at scale from the start. We are a successful product with heavy adoption, so any code we deploy will immediately be responsible for handling massive amounts of data from the moment it is turned on. And you'll be deploying a lot: our CI/CD tools deliver new features into production multiple times a day; our Slack channel for release notifications is never quiet.
Our Terraform-described stack is mostly Java-based built over various data persistence and queue technologies, such as SNS/SQS, Kafka, ElasticSearch, ElastiCache, MySQL-flavored RDS, and Cassandra.
