The team has 3 other security engineers, and you'll be working closely with the development team to implement security measures into all software development processes.

  • Familiarity with static and dynamic analysis tools like Checkmarx, Fortify, etc

  • 401(k) with 5% matching
  • Unlimited PTO
  • Medical, Dental, Vision insurance
  • Paid professional development
  • Flexible hours
