Senior Application Security Engineer

Remote or Vancouver, BC
We're looking for a formidable Application Security Engineer to help us secure billion-dollar marketplaces, help design security controls for blockchain payment systems, and solve other novel security challenges in a nascent industry.

The ideal candidate knows the OAuth2 standard inside-out and can tell you exactly why you should or should not spin your own token auth system instead, given the constraints.
What we’ll accomplish together:
  • Partner with engineering teams to build new security features across several products.
  • Design and implement automatic monitoring and detection systems for emerging threats across our codebases.
  • Test and push our systems to the limits, digging for weaknesses in a highly dynamic distributed systems environment.
A little about you:
  • Comfortable in highly distributed and eventually consistent systems, working across trust boundaries and reasoning about long-running actions.
  • Familiarity with several kinds of auth. Know all the gotchas in validating an OAuth2 bearer token.
  • Know your crypto primitives—public-private keys, hashes, cipher suites—like the back of your hand and can explain when and why you'd use ECC over RSA.
  • Experience in our development languages: mostly Go, with some Node.
  • You are capable of applying your skills across a variety of use cases; inflexible specialists need not apply.
  • We believe in processes and the power of planning, but you will often have to roll with the punches and prioritize the most impactful tasks on the fly.
