Gusto processes billions of dollars in payroll for hundreds of thousands of employees.

  • Automate and integrate security into CI/CD pipelines, such as static code analysis and dynamic code analysis.
  • Run internal red team exercises.
  • Coordinate and manage 3rd party pen-testers and bug bounty programs.
  • Ensure proper management, encryption, and separation of secrets and keys.
  • Share our security learnings and best practices with the outside world, so we can make the world more secure.

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • 7+ years experience in an application security role.
  • Familiarity with cloud environments like AWS.
  • Familiarity with dynamic languages and modern web development frameworks. We use Ruby, Javascript, Rails, and React.
  • A hands-on engineer who cares deeply about both the technological and social aspects of building a secure organization
  • Ability to partner well with cross-functional stakeholders.
  • Always thinking about attack vectors in which PII and PHI can be compromised.
