Software Engineer (Full Time)

 

Who We Are

Cylera is a VC-backed stealth startup creating a network-level cybersecurity solution to manage and protect connected medical devices, such as infusion pumps and CT machines. Our problem space is at the intersection of the virtual and physical, where insecure medical equipment serves as the interface between patients and the hospital network, and where a single device compromise could have potentially life-threatening consequences.

 

Job Description

We are looking for a software engineer who enjoys diving deep into technical problems at all levels of the stack, from low-level network processing and kernel hacking to cloud architecture and security.
