About us

While Forcepoint has many products, the focus for this position is working on our User & Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) product, which is responsible for collecting and analyzing the digital exhaust that users produce (web logs, communications, logins, etc) in order to detect illegal, unwanted, or harmful behavior.

The primary functions of the role are to work in a development capacity alongside designers, product owners, other UI developers to add new features to our existing platform as well as assist in investigating new technologies and prototyping new products.

Our User Interface is a very modern JavaScript application (Node, React, Redux, etc), interfacing with RESTful APIs that provide the data and perform the analytics. We enjoy investigating new technologies and are not afraid of change.

  • Provide feedback on product and design requirements
  • Take part in reviewing and testing code changes from other team members
  • Work closely with the UX Design team on requirements and use cases
  • Assist in prototyping new features and/or investigating new technologies
  • Remotely interface with the Engineering Leads and Software Developers in other offices who are responsible for the data and analytic back-ends to work out requirements and planning


The ideal candidate should...

  • Have strong experience with server-side and client-side JavaScript libraries and frameworks (like Node.js, React.js, Redux.js, Next.js, GraphQL, Apollo, etc)
  • Have strong knowledge of web technologies and concepts (like RESTful APIs, web servers, single sign-on implementations, etc)
  • Have experience managing client-side state and knowledge of how to address issues that might arise
