About the Role

Twitch is looking for a Software Engineer to join our Security Development (SecDev) group. The team designs security software and tools that empower teams to keep Twitch secure. We create the building blocks that other teams use in their everyday development. We believe the best type of security software is an easy to use security software. We're looking for a person that wants to participate in a positive, encouraging team that cares about the people it protects. Does that sound like you, or like someone you want to be? Cool.
