Your Professional Profile

This role involves heavy coding, along with other SecOps and engineering tasks. You should be very well versed in Python and Go with other languages as well being a plus. You should also feel comfortable running infrastructure in cloud for the code you write and documenting your applications for other ops teams to run with. Relevant skills include:

  • Real-world experience writing security-centric applications in Python and Go. We prefer Python, but actively use both in our stack.
  • Understand how to write and deploy container-based applications in public cloud (GCP, AWS) - especially in ways that can scale out automatically.
  • Have some knowledge in areas such as SecOps, cloud, vulnerability management, application security, or other related fields.
  • A B.S. in Computer Science or equivalent knowledge, however real-world experience is preferred.
