Do you have that nagging feeling that security can be better but there’s never enough time to innovate? If so, we know how you feel! Modern software development is moving so fast that security teams are often playing catch-up, but that’s not how we see it. Our take is that security is built into everything we do, and we’ll bet that’s how you’d like to work too. Our Product Security team are engineers at heart with a security focus. We collaborate and innovate to ensure that "securely" is just how we do things around here.

So, how would working at Expel look? Well, here’s who we’re hoping to find: You find the speed of development with cloud-native tech exciting rather than daunting. There’s a new challenge every day and you’re prepared to bring a new perspective and the feeling that you've made the bad actors’ job that much harder. You take pride in knowing you’ve helped your colleagues improve their architecture or close that critical exploit that could mean the difference between a breach and a sound sleep. You take a pragmatic approach to security that’s all about balance with your engineering peers ensuring positive relationships and collaborative solutions. You know security is more about building, than preaching, and you embody that every day.

If all this sounds like your cup of tea, we'd love to hear from you.

What Expel Can Do For You

  • Provide the autonomy to define/prioritize problems and propose/implement solutions
  • Deliver never-ending opportunities to try out new tech to address business problems
  • Connect you with security practitioners and business leaders as potential mentors
  • Ensure you get the management support, coaching, and feedback to make you successful

What You Can Do For Expel

  • Understand how our applications and infrastructure are built and help us level up our security game
  • Find opportunities to automate and streamline how security is applied via code to ensure repeatable solutions
  • Stay informed on trends in the DevSecOps industry and consider how they may apply to Expel
  • Advocate for new and different ways to integrate security tools and processes
  • Build and continuously update internal and end-user documentation and standard operating procedures
  • Add more humor to our day to days (we regularly poke fun at our leadership team in creative ways)

What You Should Bring With You

  • The knowledge that security can always be improved and trust in yourself to feel comfortable asking “could this be more secure if we do X?”
  • An interest in explaining things clearly that encourages collaborative problem solving
  • Knowing when to do “just enough” engineering and not over architect solutions
  • An understanding of the software supply chain and how products go from idea to deployment
  • Comfort with cloud-native technologies and a working understanding or experience in securing them
  • Ability to balance a combination of tactical and project level work
  • Outstanding technology problem solving ability and root cause analysis
  • A college degree or credible panache
