Application Security Engineer
- Austin, TX
Atlassian is continuing to hire for all open roles with all interviewing and on-boarding done virtually due to COVID-19. Everyone new to the team, along with our current staff, will temporarily work from home until it is safe to return to our offices.
The Product Security team is responsible for making sure Atlassian products and services are safe and secure. We are looking for an Application Security Engineer who thrives on working with development teams to secure their products across the entire software development lifecycle.
Your responsibilities will include source code auditing, performing threat models, reviewing new features and architectural designs, and finding ways to empower engineering teams to build secure software by default. You must have a strong ability to work with colleagues to understand our products and then come up with ways to improve existing security infrastructure.
Since we work closely with our product engineering teams, the ability to read and understand code is very important. Our products are built using a number of different languages but Java, Go, and Python are the most common. As part of the focus on learning at Atlassian, you'll be able to spend up to 20% of your time on independent research.
On your first day, we'll expect you to have:
- 2+ years working in security
- Solid understanding of web application security
- Experience in cloud security architecture and infrastructure
- Experience coding in Java, Python, or Go, and at least one scripting language
- An ability to reason about security decisions
- An ability to communicate ideas clearly and effectively to engineers who know way more than you about their code
It's great, but not required, if you have:
- Published contributions to the security community
- Presentation experience at industry events
- Experience working with compliance, privacy, IT, networking or related functions
