Posted: Nov 10, 2019
Contrast Security is the world’s leading provider of security technology that enables software applications to protect themselves against cyber-attacks. Contrast's patented deep security instrumentation is the breakthrough technology that enables highly accurate analysis and always-on protection of an entire application portfolio, without disruptive scanning or expensive security experts. Only Contrast has intelligent agents that work actively inside applications to prevent data breaches, defeat hackers and secure the entire enterprise from development, to operations, to production.
About the Position
A revolution is underway in how software is built and deployed. Serverless computing represents that next generation approach to both. At Contrast our goal is to help our customers build and deploy the most robust and secure software imaginable. We believe that not enough is being done in the Serverless space to make Serverless applications secure.
Writing instrumentation agents is a responsibility we take very seriously at Contrast. Our customers trust us enough to run our agents directly in their applications. We're looking for an engineer to exercise that power carefully, to help us build a quality, thoroughly tested agent that our customers run with complete confidence. Serverless presents a very unique problem for our customers, as now our IAST, RASP and OSS capabilities will extend into the compile and deploy process.
An ideal candidate has a passion and excitement around the Serverless Framework, as well as the AWS Lambda and Azure Functions communities. They have professional experience building Serverless applications and have a deep understanding of observability and secure programming.
