In this role, you will work directly with the Product teams to design and implement core DAST scanner features as well as deliver functionality and improvements to the open source parent project. You’ll be a key member of a small growing team that will revolutionize application security by reducing complexity, providing actionable recommendations, and empowering software engineers to take control of their application security. If you enjoy the challenge of designing and creating all new product features and contributing to OSS, this is the role for you.

What You'll Do

  • Work with stakeholders, making key technology decisions.
  • Help design and deliver improvements in both functionality and speed to the core StackHawk scanning product.
  • Contribute to support OSS ZAP projects, by implementing and improving core and add-on features to ZAP.
