Bugcrowd is the world’s #1 crowdsourced security company. Our award-winning platform combines actionable, contextual intelligence with the skill and experience of the world’s most elite hackers to help leading organizations solve security challenges, protect customers, and make the digitally connected world a safer place.

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our growing Engineering team. You’d join a highly technical group who are well versed in building enterprise-ready and highly secure software systems.

 What you’ll be doing

  • Building a platform that connects hackers around the world with companies to help all of us be more secure.
  • In addition to our external users, you’ll be working on improving our platform for our amazing internal teams, such as the Application Security Engineers who review and test incoming vulnerabilities.
  • Helping design the platform by working with our product team and both internal and external stakeholders to provide an engineering perspective.
  • Working with our designers on our design system which strives for high accessibility and standards compliance: https://bugcrowd.design/

 What you should know

These represent what we are currently using, we'd prefer you have direct experience but would definitely consider equivalents.

  • Ruby on Rails
  • JavaScript, we use React + Redux for our front end
  • PostgreSQL
  • Various AWS services

Skills that are nice to have

  • Containers: Docker, Kubernetes
  • Secure development best practices (OWASP, etc.)
  • Knowledge of networking concepts (DNS, SSL, load balancing).
  • Deep understanding of performance issues in web applications.
  • Understanding of usability and accessibility.


  • We regularly hear from both customers and researchers that Bugcrowd feels like a family, and we strive to maintain that internally as well.
  • Our team consists of a broad range of people: musicians, adventure sports junkies, nature lovers, parents, cereal enthusiasts, night owls, cyclists, artists—you get the point.
  • We use an agile development methodology, but we’re not dogmatic about it. It’s meant to empower, not impose.
  • Dog-friendly!
  • Bugcrowd was founded in Australia, so expect a few Aussies here in SF, as well as our Sydney office. Vegemite’s in the kitchen, but not mandatory.
  • We come from all over though: there are 24 different flags currently hanging in the office representing our countries of origin.  


  • Competitive salary.
  • Features ship to users every single day. We deploy multiple times daily.
  • Catered lunches and breakfasts twice a week.
  • Cool office in one SF’s historic buildings right by the Embarcadero and Exploratorium.
  • Regular Hackathons
  • Opportunities to attend relevant conferences.
