Contrast recognized for its innovation in Runtime Security
Contrast Security is the world’s leading provider of security technology that enables software applications to protect themselves against cyberattacks, heralding the new era of self-protecting software. Contrast's patented deep security instrumentation is the breakthrough technology that enables highly accurate assessment and always-on protection of an entire application portfolio without disruptive scanning or expensive security experts. Only Contrast has sensors that work actively inside applications to uncover vulnerabilities, prevent data breaches, and secure the entire enterprise from development to operations to production.
About the Position
Our development stack includes a wide range of technologies, including Java, React, Node and all things AWS. You are not expected to be an expert in them all but hopefully you have touched on the majority. While the role has visibility and influence across a number of core technologies within the platform, this person will focus on an auto scaling cloud infrastructure component, capturing security data and passing it to the dashboard for display and action by our customers. Knowledge of Kubernetes and container management is essential.
Working in Contrast means pursuing a life changing experience in the field of application security and continuous delivery. You will get the opportunity to work on challenging and leading edge areas of the product. We write, test and deploy our code on a continuous basis - true DevOps. We spread knowledge, help mentor junior engineers and reduce operational risk through Pull Requests - you’ll do the same, and quickly learn about all of the code in your product area as a result.
Our engineering team has a strong spirit of entrepreneurship. Every team member has joined us because they want to be part of a high-performing team and go through the startup experience. We look for candidates who share similar goals and beliefs about the work and the team they want to be a part of.

  • Ready to deploy: our engineers work in a fully devops environment - we deploy multiple times a day to our AWS infrastructure.
  • Working with an array of AWS Features and Services.

  • A solid analytical ability to deal with ambiguity and to solve problems independently.

About You:

  • A passion for technology and a high level of personal accountability and ownership for your work.
  • A “self-starter” attitude in order to make progress in ambiguous situations on schedule.

  • You’re a great communicator - whether you’re talking to fellow engineers or to a customer about the latest product features
  • You take pride in the work you produce - your code is clean, your designs are elegant and you are constantly refactoring.
  • Own your work. Whether a nasty bug or an awesome feature, you put your name on every line of code.
  • You’re keen to both teach and learn - There are new colleagues to help get started, and new technologies, frameworks, ways of approaching problems to be considered.
  • We are focused on building a diverse and inclusive workforce. If you’re excited about this role, but do not meet 100% of the qualifications listed above, we encourage you to apply.
