WHO WE ARE
Balbix is the world’s first platform to leverage specialized AI and gamification techniques to help organizations understand their exploding attack surface and manage their cybersecurity posture. Balbix predicts where and how breaches are likely to happen, prescribes prioritized mitigating actions, and enables workflows to address the underlying security issues. We enable CISOs and CIOs to reduce enterprise cyber risk by 95% or more, while making security teams 10 times more efficient.
Our rapidly growing customer base includes some of the world's largest organizations. We are backed by John Chambers (the former CEO and Chairman of Cisco), top Silicon Valley VCs and global investors. We have been called magical, and have received raving reviews as well as customer testimonials, numerous industry awards, and recognition by Gartner as a Cool Vendor, and by Frost & Sullivan.
ABOUT THIS ROLE
As an AI/ML Engineer you will get to play with TB-scale data gathered from a multitude of data sources including Balbix proprietary sensors and 3rd party threat feeds. You will leverage a variety of AI techniques including deep learning, probabilistic graphical models, graph learning, recommendation systems, reinforcement learning, NLP, etc. And of course, you will be part of a team building a world-class product addressing one of the grand challenges in the technology industry.
DATA SCIENCE AT BALBIX
At Balbix we believe in using the right algorithms and tools to ensure correctness, performance and deliver an excellent user experience. We draw boldly from the latest in AI/ML research but are unafraid to go beyond bayesian inference and statistical models if the situation demands it. We are generalists, caring as much about storytelling with data, as about bleeding edge techniques, scalable model training and deployment.
We are building a data science culture with equal emphasis on knowing our data, grokking security first principles, caring about customer needs, explaining our model predictions, deploying at scale, communicating our work, and adapting the latest advances.
We look out for each other, enjoy each others’ company, and keep an open channel of communication about all things data and non-data.
