At HUMAN, we are all about keeping it human. We are a cybersecurity company that protects enterprises from bot attacks to keep digital experiences human. We have the most advanced Human Verification Engine that protects applications, APIs, and digital media from bot attacks, preventing losses and improving the digital experience for real humans. Today, we verify the humanity of more than 10 trillion interactions per week for some of the largest enterprises and platforms across the internet.

Founded in 2012 in a Brooklyn sci-fi bookstore, our Human Verification Engine protects enterprises from the sophisticated bots that threaten them. It’s an ongoing war that we fight passionately every day. Join our mission to stop bots, disrupt the economics of cybercrime, and keep it human.

The MediaGuard team is a multi-functional team of R&D humans focused primarily on solving the set of problems faced by Ad Tech platforms, agencies and brands in ensuring the delivery of digital advertising to humans. You will be responsible for developing innovative, comprehensive and cost effective solutions that will be integrated into various parts of the Ad Tech ecosystem to analyze, explain and prevent various types of fraudulent and nonstandard activities.

You will look for new ways to uncover fraud and highlight patterns of abuse that only HUMAN can deliver given our history of successfully reducing sophisticated IVT across programmatic advertising.

What you will do:

  • Implement solutions to problems in Golang, possibly in Java and other languages as needed to serve the needs of the MediaGuard customers.
  • Profile, debug, optimize and harden Linux-based software.
  • Support the development and delivery of the MediaGuard product, one of our flagship offerings that handles 1.5 trillion prediction requests a day from some of the largest internet companies in the world.
  • Partner closely with our Platform Engineering teams to find ways to deliver outstanding value to our MediaGuard customers by extending and reusing common platform components.
  • Collaborate with detection researchers (data scientists, malware reversers, threat analysts) to craft and propose new ways to demonstrate the return on investment our customers are realizing as a result of using our software
  • Participate in an agile development cycle, write clear and usable documentation, give lightning talks and mentor others
  • Work with a team of uniquely hardworking engineers who love to learn, experiment, and push the limits of modern technology
  • Participate in building a thoughtful culture that emphasizes lean principles and optimizes for deep work, collaboration and doing the best work of your career

Who you are:

  • You’re either comfortable in Go codebases or open to learning the language given your depth of experience in another low-level/systems programming language such as C++, Rust, or Java. We will teach you Go!
  • You have your share of war stories about distributed architectures and their common pitfalls
  • You constantly aim for correctness and performance, in that order. You are a stickler for following a detailed merge request process and leaving things better than you found them.
  • You look to find new and innovative ways to tackle sophisticated problems through detailed experimentation.
  • You have an open attitude and collaborate well across team boundaries- be they the office hallway or the continental divide.

Benefits & Perks:

  • Unlimited PTO
  • Private medical and dental insurance for all full-time employees
  • Fully paid parental leave
  • Learning & Development fund
  • Phenomenal coaching from senior leaders and challenging development opportunities
  • Monthly internet, phone bill, and meal stipend to support working remotely during COVID-19

An Insider's view of HUMAN

What's something quirky about your company?

HUMAN has a great deal of humor ingrained in our culture! Having fun, generous people to collaborate with is such a force multiplier and makes our office feel less like an org structure and more like friendship. This makes all the difference when solving hard, structural problems like the integrity of the web.

Aaron

Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

I start my day with code reviews then have a standup with my team to go over tasks undertakings. A bit of brainstorming and pair programming with one of the developers which leads to a nice break involving lunch/snacks and/or video gaming/card games with the team and then I'll finish up tasks or carry over the remaining tasks to the following day.

Vane

Backend DevOps Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Exceptional culture and mission can enable us to live meaningfully and accomplish the greatest work of our lives. If I’m spending 1/3 of my waking hours working, I want to solve complex problems and design experiences that make the world a better place with a team that inspires me to be the best version of myself. I discovered part of my ataraxia!

Diana

Manager, UX & Research

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We always encourage team members to experiment with new technologies and explore their use cases in our products. We know that technology is ever changing and never stays the same. If you are not pushing forward then you are probably going backward. That's why we are creating a culture that encourages creativity and innovation
