Censys is building the next generation attack surface management (ASM) platform fueled by our founding technology: the ground truth for Internet data. Our data provides the best and most credible visibility into every asset connected to the internet, which reveals exposure by uncovering assets and providing risk insights.

As more companies adopt cloud solutions like AWS, Azure, and GCP, they need tools to help them identify and protect their assets in the cloud. Censys is seeking a front-end engineer to join our cloud security team to build a web application that helps security professionals to have a full picture of their cloud assets using Censys data. You’ll be working on our single-page web application that customers use to understand the makeup of their cloud infrastructure so they can protect it from attacks.

Our frontend is built in TypeScript on React and Redux on a mostly NodeJS backend. We’re looking for engineers with an eye towards delivery, who are eager to debug systems they haven’t seen before, and can work iteratively and cross-functionally towards shipping a product.

We expect all of our employees to consider customer happiness as our primary goal and a willingness to come to work everyday with a great attitude, both eager to learn and educate, which helps to make us a better organization every day.

This job is a good fit if you:

  • Thrive in an environment of collaborating with colleagues to meet sprint goals and business objectives
  • Enjoy picking up and using new technologies.  Across the business Censys use a wide range of languages, frameworks, data storage and messaging technologies.
  • Working in a responsive environment where delivering on the most important customer needs will help us deliver a best-in-class product
  • Are excited to research and build solutions to unsolved problems for our customers
  • Have a desire to gain experience and understanding of cloud infrastructure technologies and security

This job is not good fit if you:

  • Think engineering’s job is done after the code is delivered
  • You are more motivated by technology than understanding customer problems.
  • Don’t enjoy helping and mentoring your colleagues around you

What you will bring:

  • 4+ years experience in building frontend applications professionally
  • Experience with building features into a React / Redux application
  • A deep understanding of JavaScript and CSS
  • Solid grasp of frontend best practices
  • Experience with TypeScript or excitement to learn
  • You write understandable, testable code with an eye towards maintainability
  • You are familiar with REST APIs and have written applications that consume them
  • Curiosity and willingness to dig into areas outside of your usual stack 
  • You are a strong communicator. Explaining complex technical concepts to other engineers, designers, sales people, and content marketers is no problem for you
  • A BS in Computer Science or related field, or equivalent professional experience

What you will do:

  • Develop customer-facing web applications in TypeScript using React / Redux
  • Lead research to identify the best technical solutions to solve problems for our customers
  • Partner with product, design, and data engineering to translate Censys data into a new product features
  • Build dashboards and visualizations that leverage Censys data to expose security-relevant information about a customer’s cloud infrastructure
  • Mentor other engineers in frontend best practices to ensure a readable and maintainable codebase

We value diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. Censys is an equal opportunity employer.
