    • Engage in application and domain-specific threat modeling, and attack surface analysis and reduction
    • Work alongside engineers, performing peer review and mentoring as needed
    • Assist in continuous improvement efforts and serve as a resource for more junior members

    • Experience with automated application security tools and technologies (SAST, DAST, SCA etc.)
    • Excellent communication, and the ability to explain sophisticated security topics in simple terms
    • Industry certifications are a plus, including OSCP, GPEN, GWAPT, CISSP, Security+, etc.
Targeted base salary range: $135,000 - $165,000 + bonus eligibility and equity depending on experience.
