Product Security Software Engineer at Atlassian
Atlassian can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity. Assuming you have eligible working rights and a sufficient time zone overlap with your team, you can choose to work remotely or return to an office as they reopen (unless it's necessary for your role to be performed in the office). Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.
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 working to improve our vulnerability management program, building automated tools (primarily in Go), 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 current vulnerability management processes as it applies to our products and suggest / implement enhancements on our 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 software development
- 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
Our perks & benefits
To support you at work and play, our perks and benefits include ample time off, an annual education budget, paid volunteer days, and so much more.
