About Anyscale:
At Anyscale, we're on a mission to democratize distributed computing and make it accessible to software developers of all skill levels. We’re commercializing Ray, a popular open-source project that's creating an ecosystem of libraries for scalable machine learning. Companies like OpenAI, Uber, Spotify, Instacart, Cruise, and many more, have Ray in their tech stacks to accelerate the progress of AI applications out into the real world.
With Anyscale, we’re building the best place to run Ray, so that any developer or data scientist can scale an ML application from their laptop to the cluster without needing to be a distributed systems expert.
Proud to be backed by Andreessen Horowitz, NEA, and Addition with $250+ million raised to date.

About the role:
As a Product Security Engineer on our team, you’ll be in charge of architecting and building secure products that will be used to run mission-critical applications as well as in charge of establishing and implementing security best practices and policies throughout the company.
Our goal is to enable many more developers to take advantage of distributed computing and machine learning to tackle harder problems without needing to think about systems and infrastructure and instead to just focus on the problems that they are solving.
