Role Overview :

The TunnelBear Engineering team is looking for an experienced full-time versatile Software Engineer, with a passion for data engineering, to join the Direct Business team and help us build private and secure apps that are used by over 35M people around the world.

Company Overview

TunnelBear, a McAfee company, believes the world is a better place when everyone has open access to information. Our powerful security apps provide a simple way for people to browse the internet privately, wherever they are.

As the only consumer VPN to perform annual, independent, 3rd party security audits, our users can trust us to keep their connection secure.

Our main office is in beautiful Toronto, Canada, but our sleuth is global.

From device to cloud, McAfee provides market-leading cybersecurity solutions for both business and consumers. We help businesses orchestrate cyber environments that are truly integrated, where protection, detection, and correction of security threats happen simultaneously.

For consumers, McAfee secures your devices against viruses, malware, and other threats, both at home and away. We want to continue to shape the future of cybersecurity by working together to build best in class products and solutions.

About the job :

  • You will work with back-end, client, data, and security specialists to create experiences that keep our users secure, private, and more confident online
  • You will get exposure to building the software that runs on a network of VPN servers distributed in 20+ countries
  • Your work will draw on development, data engineering, security, networking, and configuration experience, and as a result, you can expect to grow into a sharper, more flexible, and versatile programmer.
  • You can also count on being surrounded by an inclusive, helpful team to support and solve challenges alongside you. We are a small company, so naturally the kind of people who tend to succeed in our team are generalists.
  • You will dabble with all forms of development, such as occasionally tweaking our client SDK
  • About the team :

    You will join a tight-knit team of easy going individuals who enjoy having fun together. Expect to be pestered into joining one of the many clubs we hold dear from board games to winter sports and more.

    Our team members are often found discussing the latest video game releases or giving a presentation on managing your personal finances (and somehow making it very fun).

    You should enjoy contributing to a team where the result is greater than the sum of its parts.

    About You :

  • You have 3+ years of experience with Scala and functional programming languages
  • You have a strong understanding of SQL, and star schemas / dimensional database design
  • You are well versed in network fundamentals like TLS, sub-netting, routing.
  • You have experience building development systems on the cloud (AWS experience is a plus).
  • You care about collecting data in order to make decisions, while maintaining the user's anonymity and security (note : we have never collected user browsing behavior and never intend to)
  • You have demonstrated ownership and pride over your projects and are able to work outside of your usual comfort zone.
  • You don't mind authoring the occasional bear-themed pun (optional... sort of)
  • You feel right at home in the terminal, comfortable with Linux or macOS.
  • You get bonus points for knowledge of anti-censorship technologies
  • Company Benefits and Perks :

    We work hard to embrace diversity and inclusion and encourage everyone at McAfee to bring their authentic selves to work every day.

    We offer a variety of social programs, flexible work hours and family-friendly benefits to all of our employees.

  • Pension and Retirement Plans
  • Medical, Dental and Vision Coverage
  • Paid Time Off
  • Paid Parental Leave
  • Support for Community Involvement
  • We're serious about our commitment to diversity which is why McAfee prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, marital status, pregnancy, gender expression or identity, sexual orientation or any other legally protected status.
