Job Description:

Western Digital--

THIS POSITION IS REMOTE OR IN THE BAY AREA.What You Should Know About Western DigitalYou might know Western Digital as a Fortune 150 company, or as the world's largest maker of hard drives and memory products (we are both of those things). What you may not know is that Western Digital designs, builds, and ships software that reaches over 300 million people every year. That's a lot of people!
Increasingly software is how people experience hardware. Think about the hardware devices you use; software is likely how you interact with that hardware. We get this. This is why software development is so important at Western Digital. We strive to deliver an amazing hardware and software experience to hundreds of millions of consumers every year; one that is fast, easy-to-use, and most importantly, secure.What You'll Be DoingAs a Technologist in the Product Security Engineering team at Western Digital, you will work on core software that protects the security of our customers' most important data.
In the Content Solutions Business Unit, we're developing products and services that help individuals and organizations encrypt and manage their data across their entire workflow. We know that the largest barrier to an end-to-end encrypted world is ease of use, and we're creating exciting new technologies that will help more people than ever before keep their data safe at all times. Your contributions might help safeguard the next big Hollywood movie, a photojournalist's hard-hitting expos--, archives of sensitive medical and financial data, or someone's next big idea.
As part of a small and dynamic team, the projects that we work on and the tools we use will vary over time. You will have the opportunity to be exposed to all phases of product development, from hardware design to post-launch support.

You should be prepared to learn about new tools, technologies, frameworks, languages, and domains, and rapidly translate your learning into results. To illustrate this, some examples of technologies and tools we're developing or using include:

  • Embedded development for ARM microcontrollers in Java, Kotlin, and Rust
  • Cryptographic protocol implementation in Java, Kotlin, C#, and Swift
  • Formal modeling of cryptographic protocols using Proverif
  • High-assurance implementations of standard cryptographic primitives including elliptic curve cryptography
  • Secure product manufacturing fixtures using FIPS 140-2 HSMs for product key signing

    The systems we're building and the software we're writing are unlike any we've created before. We want to bring the same level of robustness and design assurance to an even more challenging set of product requirements. While the technologies and tools we use will differ depending on the requirements of the system, these examples should provide some guidance on what you might be working on in the secure platform team.
    At Western Digital, we have the challenge and the responsibility to help users around the world manage, organize, and protect their most precious memories, data, and information. We want to provide you with the opportunity to help us make good on that responsibility in a diverse, supportive, and high-impact environment. Are you up for it?Your Key Responsibilities Will Include

    • Develop software in multiple languages and for multiple target environments, such as assembly, C, Rust, Java, and Kotlin.
    • Participate in the creation of requirement and design documentation for system components.
    • Foster and grow a culture of continuous improvement in software methodology, and help hold the group accountable for our stated principles, including with regard to documentation, testing, verification, and continuous integration.
    • Drive the technical strategy for integration of secure wireless communication with embedded SoC design, and help specify requirements and approach to enable this integration.

      What You'll Need To Be SuccessfulIf you feel that your background and experience has led you to the point where you want to take on this challenge and responsibility, and you believe you can be successful with the support and mentorship of our leadership, you should apply for this position regardless of your formal qualifications.

      • You should have the ability and inclination to take in new information, learn new concepts, and always seek out opportunities for growth and change.
      • You will need a strong background in mathematical reasoning. To support this, a BS in mathematics, Computer Science, or a related area is strongly preferred, and a higher degree is helpful.
      • A background in programming language theory, compiler design, software security, or software engineering and testing is often helpful.
      • You should have an ability to see a system from an attacker's perspective, and to understand what is possible or not possible with the information available to an attacker.
      • And finally, you should understand that you are not working alone, and be able to reach out to others for support and guidance when you need it.
