Series A

Symmetry is a new kind of security company. We apply machine learning with precision and speed to help our customers better understand and protect their large fleets of data stores and applications. Our goal is to provide visibility and actionability to engineering organizations and security teams globally responsible for managing data and identity management risk. We do all of this without impacting developer productivity, while creating symmetry and balance between Engineering and Security teams.

Engineering at Symmetry Systems

Engineering team and processes

Today our Engineering team is organized into three teams: Web Application, Cloud Security and Machine Learning. In the future, as we grow from a 10-person organization to a 30-50 person organization you will likely see more teams and greater breakdown of responsibilities. Our teams are highly collaborative. As we are iterating on the earliest versions of our product, we practice more of a lean engineering/development approach deploying early and often. We work with our customers and prospects daily for their feedback and perspective. Our work mostly resembles Kanban. We are still improving our internal processes from defining work to deploying features. It's repeatable and reliable...it's certainly timely, but we would like for it to be more predictable.

Technical Challenges

One of the most interesting problems involves working on multiple cloud providers: AWS, Azure and GCP. As we are cloud agnostic (even run in private data centers), it's forced our team to learn everything there is to know about the value propositions of these private clouds. Most developers work on maybe one or two of these cloud infrastructures at a time. It's quite exciting to work on all three at the same time.

In addition, we work with massively large data systems and construct advanced machine learning models to improve the richness and fidelity of the accuracy of the data.
