  • Collaborate with our security analysts in demanding security investigations.
  • Own technical aspects of integration (configuration, debugging, documentation, testing, go-live) of our internal security tooling.
  • Identify new standards and technologies that could impact our security products accuracy.

What we are looking for:

  • Hands-on experience and proficiency in API test automation and standardization is a great plus.
  • Experience in bug bounty programs and your own public CVEs/research related to web applications is a great plus.
  • Exposure to modern web browser security design, web architecture, network protocols and web automation frameworks.
