We believe that application security belongs in the hands of the engineers who write code. It should be automated within current workflows, simplifying the process of building secure software.

The Role:

StackHawk’s Engineering team is seeking an experienced Java software engineer to work on StackHawk scanner tech as well as contribute to the ZAP OpenSource project. In this role, you will work directly with the Product teams to design and implement core DAST scanner features as well as deliver functionality and improvements to the open source parent project. You’ll be a key member of a small growing team that will revolutionize application security by reducing complexity, providing actionable recommendations, and empowering software engineers to take control of their application security. If you enjoy the challenge of designing and creating all new product features and contributing to OSS, this is the role for you.

What You'll Do

  • Work with stakeholders, making key technology decisions.
  • Help design and deliver improvements in both functionality and speed to the core StackHawk scanning product.
  • Contribute to support OSS ZAP projects, by implementing and improving core and add-on features to ZAP.
  • Help customers achieve data rich scans by supporting them with YAML configuration, authentication and API scanning
  • We’re an agile, fast growing company and this job description isn’t meant to be a complete list of your qualifications or all the things you’ll do.

About You

  • 5+ years of experience in SaaS software development and design
  • Happy to have public domain feedback and eyes on your code
  • Proficient in either Java/Koltin/JVM
  • Experience with Maven/Gradle project management and build tools
  • Proficient in REST API design principles and tooling such as Swagger and Postman
  • Experience with backend web application frameworks (Spring, Play, Express.js, etc…)
  • Experience with automated build and deployment tools such as Jenkins, TravisCI, Maven, Gradle, etc..
  • Obsessive about automation
  • Persuasive – Bring others to their point of view using logic, data, and emotion. Have a formal process and framework by which to make qualitative and quantitative points, not just using emotional appeals
  • Accountable – Being willing to answer for the outcomes resulting from their own choices, behaviors, and actions. Take ownership of situations that you’re involved in
  • Self Motivated – Motivated to do or achieve something because of one’s own enthusiasm or interest, without needing pressure from others
  • Focused – Achieve what they set out to do before launching new initiatives. Complete company-linked goals and tasks, not simply to be busy and active

The Goods

  • Competitive Compensation: Earn a competitive salary and get an equity stake in the company that we are building together. 
  • Solid Benefits: Health, dental, and vision insurance 100% paid for employees and dependents. Other benefits include life insurance, AD&D, and 401K.
  • Time to Recharge Encouraged: Take what you need vacation plus ten paid holidays! Unplug, recharge, and come back refreshed. 
  • Fun Team and Perks: We do great work and have fun doing it! Get a great at home equipment setup, a fun team to collaborate with, and other great perks.
  • Place Where Your Work Matters and You Grow: As a seed stage company, your work shapes the product that we are building. Nothing beats arriving at work every day knowing that your work deeply matters, and there is no better opportunity to grow in your career.
