Job Description:

We're seeking a talented and motivated full-time Software Engineer to join our growing team. You will work as part of the engineering team to:

* Develop the (COMPANY NAME) product, contributing to client code and backend services. The codebase is mostly Go, and we're seeking someone who has experience in and enjoys writing code in Go.

* Bring a special focus on developing the security aspects of the product, spanning (COMPANY NAME)'s client apps to backend, and encompassing both product and corporate security.

Because we're an early-stage and fully remote company, we're looking for a motivated individual who can help move the product forward. The ability to think on your feet, collaborate with highly technical teams, and comfort working asynchronously are essential.

Skillsets of interest:

We're looking for several clusters of security-related skills.

* Platform security: Build features into the (COMPANY NAME) client to better protect user keys, and verify the validity of an access request.

* TPMs and secure enclaves for storing credentials and ensuring a chain of trust

* Cryptographic protocols and digital signatures

* Endpoint health and posture checks (e.g., osquery), and interfacing with third party MDM products

* Cloud infrastructure security: (COMPANY NAME) users frequently deploy (COMPANY NAME) to servers in both physical on-prem devices as well as virtual machines running in the cloud.

* Cloud provider secrets storage for virtual machines

* Security group policies in AWS/Azure/GCP

* IaC and deployment tools, e.g., Terraform

* Familiarity with networking, including NAT and firewalls, is a plus.

* Experience with security for open-source projects is a plus.

* Experience implementing cryptographic protocols is a plus.


* Experience developing in Go, used for much of the system. Previous experience in #golang makes ramping up quicker

* Ability to give and process constructive feedback, as well as work independently

* Flexibility to adjust to the dynamic nature of a startup

With the team, you'll succeed with these sorts of goals:

* Work as part of a team of engineers and designers to add features in the (COMPANY NAME) service

* Take a holistic view of the product, from customer needs to client applications to the admin console

* Flexible (and reasonable) working hours-work/life balance is exceptionally important to us

* Competitive compensation, stock options and 401(k) (for United States-based employees)

* Comprehensive medical/dental/vision benefits, and more

* 4 weeks of paid vacation (standard across the company) + 12 company holidays per year

* An allowance for equipment to help you personalize your workspace

This is a full-time position. Our team is spread across Toronto, Montréal, New York City, Seattle, San Francisco, Victoria, Phoenix, and elsewhere. We are looking for someone based in the continental United States or Canada who can maintain several hours a day of overlap with the Eastern timezone.
