  • Work with the Ops and DevSecOps teams to make sure that product features are securely deployed
  • Address the application layer security issues as incidents occur

What you'll bring.

  • 7+ years of application security experience including source code auditing, penetration testing, product assessments, vulnerability research, reverse engineering, etc
  • Strong familiarity with Python and JavaScript web app development frameworks
  • Proven ability to find vulnerabilities beyond the OWASP Top 10.
  • Familiar with vulnerability management and penetration testing tools: Burp, ZAP, Kali Linux, or Metasploit
  • Excellent communication skills: demonstrated ability to explain complex technical issues to lay audiences
  • Strong analytical, organizational, and technical writing skills
  • Strong working knowledge of applied cryptography

Preferred Experience

  • Experience using security monitoring technologies e.g. Splunk, CloudWatch and CloudTrail events
  • Experience deploying using CI/CD pipelines to AWS e.g. Jenkins or AWS CodePipeline
  • Experience working in a regulated environment such as PCI or SO
