· Work with software development teams to identify security problems and improve the security aspects of their service(s)
· Assess risks that could affect the integrity, availability, or confidentiality of data, systems, or services
· Resolve security events, incidents, or conduct security assessments using penetration tests, ethical hacking tools, or risk mitigation methodologies to evaluate vulnerabilities
· Classify, store, and handle data in accordance with policy or best practices
· Troubleshoot, research the root cause of, and resolve security or risk issues with guidance

Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews.

Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren’t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online.
