  • Mentor others on the team about security and share your knowledge.

We’d love to hear from you even if you don’t have experience or interest in every bullet. There’s no perfect candidate and we want to find the right fit, even if it’s different than we imagine. We especially would like to meet underrepresented/underestimated candidates.

What We’ll Offer:

  • Competitive NYC based Salary (regardless of location, benchmarked annually)
