Senior Product Security Engineer - Javascript

Reporting to the head of security, the Senior Product Security Engineer will be responsible for secure code reviews of teams using Javascript, front-end frameworks like React, building internal libraries that enable developers, setting up static code analysis, and partnering with Platform Security Engineers building shared tooling used across all Engineering.

You'll join a highly-distributed team that’s building a paved security path so our team of more than 130 engineers can focus on their core competencies and worry less about security issues. You'll write sustainable, resilient code as part of an engineering organization that values collaboration, trust, and learning. You’ll be part of a team at the heart of CircleCI’s business responsible for build environments used by thousands of development teams every day.

What You’ll Do:

  • Consult as the Javascript security subject matter expert in standup, sprint planning and OKR meetings with Growth and Front End development teams.
  • Participate in bi-monthly third-party penetration tests.
  • Write and maintain sustainable, high-quality, high-performance code.
  • Identify and build user-friendly tools to create a paved path for secure Javascript development.
  • Participate in the Security Team’s on-call incident rotation.
  • Respond to bug emails submitted by security researchers and work on remediation.
  • Backlog grooming and chipping away at technical debt.
  • Be a leader on third-party library security.
  • Write blog posts, lead internal workshops and education efforts.

What We're Looking For:

Process makes you feel good. Mentoring is a primary reason why you love your profession. Learning something new every day is essential to your happiness. You are compassionate and genuinely like people. Javascript is the best or worst thing in your world depending on the day. Leftpad is never far from your mind.

Does that sound like you? If so, here’s the experience we’re looking for:

  • Security mindset.
  • Strong analytical skills.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Calm under high-pressure situations.
  • Five years experience as a Javascript developer and operating production micro-services.
  • Deep knowledge of Node.js, NPM, Yarn and React.js.
  • Web penetration testing and OWASP Top 10 experience.
  • Experience conducting secure code reviews of Javascript projects and packages
  • Experience working in a modern cloud company with Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, Helm, AWS, and GCP.
  • A willingness to learn Clojure and new languages.
  • A focus on delivering high-quality code through strong testing practices.
  • Ability to manage customer demands and work with internal stakeholders to solve them.
  • Demonstrated ability to lead multiple, complex projects simultaneously.
