Why we are hiring this role:

As part of the larger security team, we are helping product teams build secure software for both external and internal customers. We do this by being involved in design for larger features, reviewing code, developing threat models, and leading security initiatives.

  • Lead application security initiatives including baking in security automation into CI/CD, improving our code analysis capabilities, and so on

  • Have strong opinions about building APIs and how to test their security
  • Breadth and depth of application security knowledge
  • Experience in web application and mobile pentesting
  • A deep grasp on the importance of baking security into the CI/CD versus bolting it on

You will be successful:
  • If you thrive with complex problems and can untangle and identify key wins that drive effective delivery.
  • By tackling problems quickly, iteratively, and through experimentation with the goal to deliver effective solutions quickly.
  • If you don't let perfect be the enemy of good.
  • By acting with integrity, developing trust, and holding all of us to high standards.
