Backend Engineer (Flask API)
Do you wish application security were more accessible to all developers? Do you want to make the lives of developers easier? Come help us develop the next generation of application security testing!
We are looking for an experienced backend engineer to work on Mayhem, our next-generation autonomous application security testing platform. In this role, you will have a chance to make a large impact on a quickly growing team/product, working on a first class experience built for developers, by developers.
At ForAllSecure, our mission is to make cybersecurity autonomous. We believe that software eats the world, and is often the root cause for most cybersecurity issues. We are building products to fix the cycle between problem/fix so that it happens at machine speed, not human speed. To get there, we are engineering technology and products that are super-accurate, performant and scalable.
Our Engineering team is a small (but growing!), motivated group of developers working together to try to better the state of application security today. We place a large emphasis on personal growth and collaboration, striving to continuously improve and learn as we tackle new challenges together.
What You'll Do
- Hands on design, development and improvement of new and existing features and functionality across Mayhem's CLI, API, and UI
- Follow and contribute best engineering practices, tooling, and processes
- Mentor and train new and existing team members (as needed)\
What You'll Bring
- A strong CS fundamentals background through a current pursuit of Bachelor’s, Master’s, or PhD degree in computer science or related discipline
- Strong backend programming experience required
- Demonstrated experience mentoring junior developers
- Demonstrated drive for continuous improvement and learning
To address the scale needed by the rapid pace of software growth, companies need security tools that are automated and don’t require lengthy manual analysis to sift out false positives. Our focus at ForAllSecure is to build the next-generation of security products that change how companies develop, test and deploy software.
Our tool Mayhem, a fully autonomous cybersecurity system, was built utilizing over 12 years of research out of Carnegie Mellon and developed by a team of some of the best hackers in the world. In 2016, DARPA hosted the Cyber Grand Challenge, the world’s first all-machine hacking tournament, in which Mayhem competed and took first place against industry and the best challengers from academia. Since then, we have been bringing this product to market. The Mayhem solution makes software validation testing radically simpler with a powerful combination of intelligent fuzzing, symbolic execution, and checking of static security indicators.
Mayhem has found vulnerabilities in several open source projects, components in production aircraft, and critical flaws in embedded devices. This is only the beginning as we plan to have Mayhem bring automation, usability and scalability to today’s software security problems.
