Company: Elastic

At Elastic, we have a simple goal: to solve the world's data problems with products that delight and inspire. As the company behind the popular open source projects — Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats — we help people around the world do great things with their data. From stock quotes to Twitter streams, Apache logs to WordPress blogs, our products are extending what's possible with data, delivering on the promise that good things come from connecting the dots. We unite Elasticians across 30+ countries (and counting!), 18 timezones and 30 different languages into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.

Thanks to our ongoing expansion we have the opportunity to grow our Cloud Security team.

We're a part of the Elastic Cloud team with a focus on finding security flaws in complex distributed systems and coming up with creative and approachable solutions that enable developers to ship secure code.

We’re looking for people who are just as passionate about uncovering an obscure security vulnerability as they are about educating developers on how to fix it. Would you like to focus on building and maintaining an Application Security program that will be used as the benchmark for our industry?

What you will be doing:
  • Take ownership for the offensive security program for Elastic Cloud.
  • Work with security researchers and developers to resolve security issues in our stack.
  • Vulnerability research and proof of concept exploit code development.
  • Demonstrate and promote security development practices.
What you bring along:
  • A history of uncovering, exploiting, and remediating application or system security flaws.
  • A deep understanding of coding and scripting languages such as Java and Python and can easily switch between a variety of languages quickly.
  • Knowledge of and experience with manipulating protocols and libraries in order to compromise the security of a set of systems or code.
  • Previous experience working on a large code base
Bonus Points:
  • You have hands on experience in both using and securing Linux based systems and containers.
  • You've worked on open source projects before and are familiar with different styles of source control workflow and continuous integration.
