    • Collaborate with internal teams to understand how products can be improved to better detect malicious activity and protect our customers
    • Validate, risk rank, document, and prioritize remediation for external vulnerability reports and 3rd party security assessments
    • Encourage and train developers in secure coding practices
    • Continuously improve Application Security Program and actively take part influencing its roadmap
    • Participate in Red Team/ Blue Team exercises
    Who you are
    • 4+ years in an information security role
    • Knowledge of web application and code vulnerabilities (e.g. OWASP Top 10)
    • Proficiency in one or more coding languages (Go, Python, Ruby, Java)
    • Ability and desire to operate in a fast paced, hyper growth environment
    • Capable of practically applying and combining security vulnerabilities, simulating real attacks to help communicate risk to business
    • Comfortable operating in a containerized environment and navigating in both Windows and Linux systems
    • Equity stake in a well-funded growth stage company
    • A hybrid in-office approach, allowing you to work remotely a couple of days a week
