NYDIG is building an inclusive financial system that makes Bitcoin a universal option for billions of people worldwide. We fuse high tech with institutional-grade finance to build technology that makes it easy for partners to white label our solutions and create their own products like bitcoin accounts, rewards, and loyalty programs. Our team is a group of proven innovators with deep domain expertise across finance and technology. We look for passionate, low-ego, excellence-driven people who want to work together on creating technology that will impact the future of finance.


You’ll be trusted to conduct security assessments from start to finish with minimal assistance. Depending on the project, you may perform white, black, or grey box assessments and may develop proof of concept code to demonstrate the severity of findings. You'll tap into your "security instincts" to find vulnerabilities and break down complicated technical issues and the risks they pose to programmers, network engineers, system administrators, and management. The Product Security engineer collaborates with those teams to ensure correct design, development, and implementation of internal and customer facing projects. You’ll also play a big part in securing our cloud infrastructure, contributing to technical design choices in a cloud native AWS environment, helping us secure container set-ups and architect secure CI/CD pipelines.

While deep technical skills are critical to success with us, we're also looking for fast learners who are passionate about security and are constantly researching to stay ahead of the newest threats. You should be analytical and love to problem solve. Teamwork is key so it's important that you know how to collaborate and be a great teammate.

  • 5+ years of experience with programming and scripting languages and experience working on a software engineering team or closely with one.
  • A consistent record of discovering, analyzing, and exploiting application vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in software, on Windows and Linux platforms, or in common container orchestration platforms such as Docker and Kubernetes.
  • A track record in helping to secure AWS Cloud environments by shifting the security left towards the developers (secure CI/CD pipelines etc.)
  • The ability to work with stakeholders throughout the vulnerability lifecycle to communicate issues and provide remediation guidance
  • Proficiency in reading, writing, and auditing source code in both unmanaged and managed languages and the ability to pick up new languages/technologies
  • Experience developing custom tools when necessary

We'd Love to See

  • Experience with infrastructure automation (Cloudformation, Terraform) and configuration management tools (Ansible, Chef, Puppet, and similar) preferred.
  • Experience securing containerized applications and their deployments with common orchestration technologies such as Kubernetes, Mesos, or redshift.
  • Prefer hands-on experience with DevOps deployment strategies and tools (Jenkins, CircleCI, Github Actions)
  • Take a leadership role in defining tools, techniques and technologies used to secure and monitor NYDIG’s infrastructure
