  • Establish company-wide web security standards
  • Work with developers to create automated processes to assess & enforce standards
  • Develop policies & guidelines to make it easier for the team to remain secure
  • Manage bug bounty programs and collaborate with 3rd-party security researchers

Hard requirements:

  • Good understanding of cloud security (AWS, GCP, Azure)

  • Great understanding of broader security market and security products landscape
  • Borderline obsessive about possible attack vectors and security loopholes

Bonus points for:

  • Deep experience with Solana’s programming model
  • Deep insight into AWS and its security best-practices
  • Experience with any combination of the following: mobile security, secure coding, identity management and authentication, system administration and network security
  • Auditing experience, in Solana in particular
  • Experience hiring and running a security engineering team (you won’t be doing this immediately, but over time)

What you’ll get:

  • Generous ownership & stake in the company. We’re looking for owners 🤝
  • A fast-paced, no-BS environment
  • Flexible working hours & hybrid schedule
  • Top-of-the-line M3 Macbook Pro and peripherals

Our stack is Rust (protocol) / TypeScript (back-end & front-end), React/NextJS, AWS, Kubernetes and a bunch of distributed data systems (Kafka, RDS/Postgres, ElasticSearch).


We’re remote-first. The founding team is in Toronto, and you’re welcome to join us there, but you don’t have to.
