The Role: At Nitro we are looking to hire a Senior Security Engineer to join us to help build, lead and champion our Application Security Program and participate in the continued evolution of our overall Security strategy.

We are looking for a motivated, self-sufficient and talented Security Engineer who can help build out a nascent shift-left Product Security initiative. We are looking for an engineer who strives to continuously iterate, improve and learn. The Security team at Nitro focuses on partnering with development groups throughout the company to create and deliver applications and services that are secure. Our work includes audits such as code reviews, threat models and penetration testing assessments. We also build partnerships with engineering teams in defining security-related requirements and providing input on design proposals. This role will also manage tools and create practices which will allow us to scale our work to cover a diverse and complex set of code bases across the broader organization. 

What you'll be doing:

  • Assess the current state of Product Security and help evolve a scalable, developer-focused Security Development Lifecycle (SDLC)
  • Select and/or design and build security tools to be integrated within the CICD pipeline
  • Perform reviews ranging from architectural design to threat modeling, providing actionable recommendations to make Nitro’s products and services more secure
  • Collaborate closely with engineering on the implementation of security best practices in essential systems across the company
  • Triage and respond to vulnerability reports and potential incidents
  • Manage and/or write tools to help identify application security flaws and work with engineering teams to make sure that issues are remediated
  • Help coordinate penetration testing of Nitro products and services
  • Lead and further develop a Security Champion program
  • Be capable of prioritizing security efforts in the broader business context, as well as helping teams understand the prioritization of security mitigation work 

What we're looking for:

  • Five + years of experience in the application security space helping to secure complex web, desktop and mobile applications and their architectures (experience with Scala, GoLang and/or C/C++ a plus)
  • A history of independently finding security vulnerabilities in applications
  • A track record of contributing to projects from design to implementation and through maintenance
  • A broad and practical understanding of security fundamentals and their application in real world environments
  • Experience with static, dynamic and SCA security tools
  • Practical knowledge and experience working in public cloud environments (AWS, Azure, etc.)  

What would be awesome to also have:

  • Contributions to the security community (conference talks, Open Source projects, viral memes, etc) 
  • Successful bug bounty or CTF experience 
  • Experience with GitHub actions, Dependabot, Datadog, argocd and Kubernetes 
  • Infrastructure as Code experience 

Please note, this role can be hired remotely in Ireland and some other European countries. 

How We Work: 
Our mission is to help create, develop, and support an environment where great people come to do their best work. We believe there is a balance to strike between “work hard, play hard,” and we strive to improve in both areas every day. 
We put our customers, employees, and communities at the center of everything we do. It all comes back to our core values:    

  • Be Good - Nitronauts are good humans with big hearts that are respectful and supportive of each other. We celebrate individuality and diversity and strive to foster an environment where people can be themselves and do their best work.     
  • Performance First - We like to challenge ourselves. We’re passionate about exceeding expectations and stepping outside our comfort zones to get to the next level. It’s our ambition that pushes us to work hard and deliver strong results.   
  • No B.S. - This one is self-explanatory, but we’re all about transparency, honesty, and authenticity here. We don’t beat around the bush; we tell it like it is.
