Join us as we pursue our exciting vision to make machine data accessible, usable and valuable to everyone. We are a company filled with people who are passionate about our product and seek to deliver the best experience for our customers. 
 
At Splunk, we believe making machine data accessible, valuable, and usable is essential to creating inclusive products for our customers. Accessible design in our physical world benefits everyone; we’ve all used sidewalk cutouts or sent text messages. We’re bringing that same philosophy into our digital products by making digital accessibility a priority at Splunk. 
It’s crucial to consider all customers in our product suite, including those with permanent, temporary, and situational disabilities. By not considering digital accessibility, we prevent professionals with disabilities from becoming advocates of Splunk.

As a Principal Accessibility Software Engineer, your role will be crucial to growing the efficacy of our digital accessibility program. This role will work closely with our Accessibility Program Manager, Designers, and other cross-functional Engineering teams to set the direction for solving accessibility challenges across all of Splunk’s user experience products.
