Sr. Software Engineer, Java

Proofpoint is looking for a talented, self-driven individual to play a major role developing our next generation Threat Protection services that focus on detecting, blocking, and tracking highly-sophisticated spam and malware attacks against enterprise organizations. As the volume and ingenuity of these kinds of cyber-attacks increase around the world, the associated hard-costs for successful attacks against organizations/governments have continued to sky-rocket as well (e.g. analysts estimate that the average cost for one successful spear-phishing email is currently $7.2M+). Stopping these kinds of attacks is no small feat, you literally have to be able to find needles within oceans of needles – which our Targeted Attack Protection product does. This product has been selling extremely well and Proofpoint’s leadership in this market is being recognized by analysts and, more importantly, our customers. In this role you will have an important opportunity to help the largest, most well-known enterprises in the world protect their data and play a key role in improving email security globally.
