Senior Security Engineer

We're large enough to make a difference but small enough for your voice to be heard. This means that we are an organization where every person matters. You are part of the success of our business and that of our customers regardless of where you sit in our organization. A human touch in a digital world.

Digital currency can transform the way we conduct business and brings new benefits to both the corporate world and consumers globally. We're on a mission to help people everywhere understand and use the power of digital currencies as a delightful medium-of-exchange, and be accessible anywhere in the world, so everyone has a fair chance for financial prosperity.

From analyst to engineers, from sales and marketing to client services experts, we're hiring to support your growth and ours.

Maintaining a high security bar has earned us the trust of millions of customers. The Security team works across the organization, architecting, advising, and building solutions that make the engineering platform secure. This role will touch all facets of the engineering pipeline, from development and deployment, to core infrastructure and configuration, to the cross between SRE and Security.

Successful candidates will come from a technical background with hands-on experience in developing cloud systems at scale, have a solid understanding of security controls in the digital currency space, know how to design enterprise systems for security, possess strong threat modeling experience, have experience building and documenting reliable and scalable distributed systems, and collaborate with others to drive initiatives forward.
