Technical Lead

What is your role at VMRay?

I was one of the first employees at VMRay and had many different tasks in the beginning. At the moment, I am head of the “Detection” team: we develop our VTI engine and are responsible for detecting malware behavior patterns. In addition, we prepare the analysis results and associated graphics so that they can be made available to the user in an understandable and intuitive way.

What does a typical working day look like for you?

My day usually starts with breakfast together with colleagues in the office. I usually work on my Scrum tickets, mainly implementing new features for malware analysis. From time to time there are also meetings, where we discuss new projects or existing problems and see how they can be solved. After work, some of us regularly play foosball or darts in our social room.

Describe your team.

I work with different teams here: for example, I spend one week with a colleague where we’re trying to solve a problem with a specific type of malware then I spend the following week with another colleague where we work together to design a new feature for our software. It’s all very dynamic and challenging at the same time, because the malware authors keep coming up with something new.

  • We help create blog posts, videos and presentations for our website

Threat Researcher

What is your role at VMRay?

I am a malware analyst at VMRay, i.e. I look at current malware and try to improve the analysis capabilities of our solution if necessary. For example, if there are problems with the investigation of a specific malware file, I get to the bottom of the matter and identify the cause. If this is in our software, I contact the development team and suggest improvements.

What has been your most exciting project so far?

There are several. Most people are familiar with WannaCry – a Ransomware that infected Deutsche Bahn, among other companies. It was exciting for me that I could examine this attack in detail and see exactly how it works; determine if new techniques were used and find out if this was something we had already seen. My job was to dismantle it into its components and look closely at each one of them.

Why did you start working at VMRay?

I applied because I think the technology and the working environment here are really exciting. What motivates me at work is how the time seems to fly when I am engaged on a new and exciting project. This is a perfect example where VMRay allows for me to customize my role to fit my work personality.
