Who's Secure Code Warrior?

Secure Code Warrior is the developer-chosen solution for secure coding. Secure Code Warrior makes the world safer by making secure coding a positive and engaging experience for developers. We succeed with a human approach that uncovers the secure developer inside every coder, helping development teams ship quality code faster so they can focus on creating amazing, safe software for our world. We care about the impact insecure coding has on the world and are driven to make learning secure coding a positive experience, by proudly bringing our unique style of creativity, approachability and fun to this crusade. 

Our people are the heart of Secure Code Warrior. We’d be best described as an eclectic and enlightened bunch of people who provide a variety of voices and viewpoints. We pride ourselves on celebrating people for who they are and what they contribute. We are all life-long learners, endlessly curious, with a hunger and spark to grow our company to make a big impact in software safety. You won’t find us overdressed and uninspired (flip-flops are welcome) and we like to put a little fun and cheekiness into everything we do.

Our engineering team needs someone who is a leader who inspires the team to grow and improve. While re-architecting the code/system for scale and performance, we also need to deliver incremental customer & business value quickly in order to maintain our status as a market-leader with a best-of-breed product.
You will be able to hire talent that can technically coach/support the engineers and work in close partnership with your peers in Product, to create an Engineering-Product-Design trio.  
As a member of the senior leadership team, you will collaboratively contribute to strategy sessions, OKRs, managing people and maintaining your P&L/OpEx.

We're looking for someone to help us:

  • Be a credible leader and an enjoyable person to work with, who lives and breathes our Warrior Code (values)
  • Continuously improve the engineering team’s capabilities, its capacity to economies of scale, its confidence in the engineering pipeline and in changes to the product, and the overall time to value
  • Partner with Product & Design in a feedback-driven approach to deliver what’s needed and refine how it’s delivered
  • Encourage collaboration and consensus within the engineering team and with other functions in the company
  • Work with compliance, security, and legal stakeholders to set service expectations and to ensure the service being delivered meets those expectations
  • What we're looking for:

  • A network of excellent software professionals to draw on, and an ability to attract the best available talent into the team
  • A passion for software development and building things that can give software developers superpowers
  •  An understanding of security and how it impacts developers
  • Strategic problem solver and ability to work across functions and teams
  • Motivating and inspiring leadership, using demonstrable credibility rather than authority, building trust by enabling team members to thrive & excel at their Engineering craft
  • Why Work at Secure Code Warrior
