Criminal hackers are getting smarter every day. To combat them, this organization is building a Security Review Environment that makes the work of security analysts 10 times faster by automating mundane analysis tasks.

The Security Review Environment (SRE) is for a security analyst, what an IDE is for software engineers. Most security analysts use an IDE for software analysis, even though it’s made for software development. Instead, the environment they are building is tailor made for security analysis: it has features ranging from keeping track what is reviewed to symbiotic taint analysis. With your feedback, they will improve the environment even further. Subsequently, they will supply the environment to thousands of other security analysts worldwide, to superpower all the ethical hackers out there.

They are looking for a software security analyst who shares their vision that a security analysis that leverages source code, enables you to find the most vulnerabilities. Obviously, you will have access to a penetration testing environment or testing build to verify any vulnerabilities. Moreover, they do require (or train you with) a hacker mindset, so you can always validate the vulnerabilities in a real environment. Projects range from old school Java web servers (or new using Kotlin) to state of the art Zero Knowledge Proof protocols build on a blockchain.

You will start as one of the first employees in the core team (a team of 5 right now), but prepare to be one of the 20 employees after 3 years. Because they are working hard to become a tech leader in software security.

• Fair startup salary (and a stock option plan at the end of 2022)
• They supply you with a top-notch laptop and other gear (screen/keyboard/mouse/etc.) to work smooth and efficient. And leave it up to you to go for Mac, Windows or Linux (the order of this list is truly random)
