Data Scientist Full-time

at FIREEYE CYBERSECURITY PVT. LTD. in Banglore (Published at 23-03-2017)

Position Title: Data Scientist

Location: Bangalore, India

The Company:
FireEye has invented a purpose-built, virtual machine-based security platform that provides real-time threat protection to enterprises and governments worldwide against the next generation of cyber-attacks. These highly sophisticated cyber-attacks easily circumvent traditional signature-based defenses, such as next-generation firewalls, IPS, anti-virus, and gateways. The FireEye Threat Prevention Platform provides real-time, dynamic threat protection without the use of signatures to protect an organization across the primary threat vectors and across the different stages of an attack life cycle. The core of the FireEye platform is a virtual execution engine, complemented by dynamic threat intelligence, to identify and block cyber-attacks in real time. FireEye has over 4,000 customers across 67 countries, including more than 650 of the Forbes Global 2000.

The Role:

If you dream of a job working in a field where all of the hard problems are solved and you get to re-use previous research to get your job done, you need not apply. If, however, you are someone who wants to tackle problems that truly are on the cutting edge, then we encourage you to keep reading.
Data Science is an emerging field within cyber security. FireEye is uniquely positioned to enable data scientists to have major impact within our industry, company, and across our customer base. Detecting security breaches through data analytics is an unsolved problem (this isn’t hand writing recognition folks), and has huge potential. If you are someone who wants to be on the cutting edge of a high profile industry, who wants to make an impact by pushing both the field of data science and cyber security forward, you may be the perfect candidate to help us on our mission.


As a Data Scientist in FireEye Labs, you will be performing research in areas that our incident response division identifies as the most in need of data analytics. You will be expected to prove out your ideas by building proof of concepts, working with subject matter experts to refine models, working with software engineers to ensure models are implemented well, and finally following through to ensure the analytics capabilities are functioning as expected. Being able to exchange ideas, ask questions and the ability to work with and communicate clearly to non-data scientists how your research works are all musts.

Experience in applying a wide variety of unsupervised and supervised machine learning techniques, and the ability to turn big data into actionable intelligence.
Polyglot - able to learn and contribute using different languages and technologies
Significant development experience with Python
Strong Linux experience required
Ability to document and explain technical details clearly and concisely
M.S /PhD in Computer Science, or equivalent experience

Additional Qualifications:
Experience in the security space with a basic understanding of the attack surface.
Experience in software for data manipulation and analysis (Tensorflow, Matlab, Theano)
Experience working on Neural networks highly desirable
Experience using relational and non-relational databases
Experience with web frameworks to visualize large datasets.
