This early position will be instrumental in shaping engineering culture and promoting StackHawk’s goal of identifying and remediating app vulnerabilities in the CI/CD pipeline and empowering software engineers to take control of their application security.

  • Accountable - Being willing to answer for the outcomes resulting from their own choices, behaviors, and actions. Take ownership of situations that they'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
