  • Support the bug bounty program
  • Assist in implementation of security processes and automated tooling that prevent classes of security issues
  • Lead application security reviews and threat modeling, including code review and dynamic testing
  • Develop security training and socialize the material with product development teams

  • Javascript/Typescript coding experience
  • Familiarity with secure coding practices
  • Familiarity with security tools and libraries such as static/dynamic analysis tools and penetration testing tools
  • Familiarity and ability to explain common security flaws and ways to address them (e.g. OWASP Top 10)
