Role Overview

We are looking for a Sr. Product Security Engineer with broad knowledge of software, network, and cloud technologies to provide a powerful combination of leadership, implementation, and operational support to drive the security of our new product offerings. Your focus will be on growing our DevSecOps culture, leveraging OSS security testing tools, developing new custom security testing tools, performing vulnerability analysis (including pentesting of live systems), contributing security minded designs to our product architecture, and leading our internal bug bounty program. All of this work will cover a diverse technology stack from development through production, including the latest big data platforms and technologies (e.g. AWS/GCP/Azure, Kubernetes, Docker, Kafka, Spark, and more).
