About the role

The Product Security organization oversees engineering security practices across the entire product organization and therefore the securing of multiple products (both on-prem builds and SaaS). Product Security is multi-faceted with respect to the counterparts it is interacting with: engineering teams, product management, product marketing, legal and external customers; it is at the cross-road of everything we build. You will be involved in a vast array of endeavors to build our security program. Your primary task will be to automate and integrate a variety of systems and tools to come up with a state-of-the-art security pipeline and help teams identify, mitigating and sometimes fixing security vulnerabilities inherent to our products . You will also lean on other engineering endeavors for our compliance program, work on the application security pipeline, drive cloud security practices, Docker and Kubernetes security, vulnerability management, educating our engineering workforce, and harden our software supply chain. Location / TimeZone: our preferred team member will work CEST / GMT or EST working hours. We fully embrace remote and asynchronous working but recognize the demands of time-zones on all staff. We use remote tools extensively, including Slack, GitHub and Google Docs.

  • Help raise the profile of security across engineering:
  • Educate and evangelize security engineering throughout the organization. 
  • Re-engineer processes as needed in collaboration with the teams.

Role requirements

  • The hacker mentality of doing whatever it takes to figure out and solve a problem. 
  • There is no lie in saying we will be asking for a lot 
  • Prior experience (5+ years) as an appsec engineer, including: 
  • Risk Assessment / Threat Modeling / Risk Mitigation 
  • Security reviews (incl. active vulnerability research) 
  • Automation 
  • Secure SDLC
  • Understand, explain and assess software security vulnerabilities
  • Prior experience (2+ years) working with Product teams, directly interacting with software development and operations teams. 
  • Proficiency using CI/CD tools to create and manage automated pipelines (e.g. Jenkins pipelines, or any other of our competition)
  • Strong proficiency in scripting and / or software development (Golang, Python, Java/Groovy preferred)
  • Experience with authentication / authorization protocols such as OAuth, OIDC, SAML. 
  • Experience in the OWASP Top Ten (web, API) security risks and how to mitigate them. 
  • Infrastructure level experience with Google Cloud, Kubernetes (GKE), Terraform and Helm charts is nice to have. 
  • Passion for automating all the things, while keeping security in mind at all times.
