Software Engineer, Security
APPLICATION SECURITY ENGINEER
ABOUT THE ROLE
Stitch Fix is looking for an Application Security Engineer to help build security tooling and implement secure development practices with our engineering partners.
The individual in this role will be part of the Security Engineering Team and work closely with the various Platform and Development teams to threat model new features and design responsive controls. The candidate should have strong experience with building software in a production cloud environment.
Our team members are given a great deal of autonomy in the pursuit of keeping Stitch Fix secure, and the successful candidate will demonstrate strong communication skills. They should be comfortable and productive, working independently, partnering with a larger, highly distributed engineering team.
We’re looking specifically for folks who are interested in usable security and rely on automation where possible. Stitch Fix is a fast-growing company, and our security program needs to be able to keep pace with that growth while not disrupting innovation.
REQUISITE SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
Your skills are broad – building, deploying, and maintaining applications and services in an organization with an emphasis on security. We are open to software engineers, SREs, and others without traditional security titles. We are looking for a mix of the following skills, and don’t expect candidates to be experts in all.
Strong experience programming in Ruby or Go.
Significant experience in a programming language (Ruby, Go, or Python), having contributed to a codebase or project full-time
Experience with Infrastructure as Code like Terraform and CloudFormation.
NICE TO HAVES
Experience building security controls in a DevOps environment or at the application level.
Knowledge of common application security risks.
Understanding of Content Security Policy (CSP).
Experience working with common CI/CD technologies like CircleCI or similar
ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY
Technologies we rely on to pursue solutions to business problems include:
Ruby on Rails
AWS / ECS
AWS / Lambda
Even if you already have experience with these tools, you’ll have the chance to get even better with them. And if you don’t already use at least a few of these tools, we will help you learn and become effective with them.
WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT YOU BECAUSE…
YOU ARE ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT TECHNOLOGY. You will collaborate to build solutions using the appropriate tools and contribute to design and architecture across multiple systems. You want to build on your experience and help us to adopt new technologies. You’ll learn from us, and we’ll learn from you. You care deeply about the experience you are delivering.
YOU HAVE A PRODUCT-FOCUSED MINDSET. Our team works together to deliver projects that use technology to solve real business problems. Your team members and business partners will seek out your opinion on how the product you’re building should work. You aren’t afraid to dig deep and ask the tough questions of our customers, company, and executive team.
YOU ARE INTERESTED IN DEVELOPING YOUR LEADERSHIP QUALITIES. You should believe in what you’re doing and inspire others around you to be their best selves? Do you feel ownership of the projects you are working on?
YOU HAVE DEEP RESPECT FOR YOUR CRAFT. We are dedicated to building software sustainably, using modern techniques. You’re always looking for more and better ways to write software, and enthusiastic about sharing them with your team.
YOU ARE RESPECTFUL, EMPATHETIC, AND HUMBLE. We want you to take your work seriously and be open to personal and professional growth. Successful engineers show everyone respect and consideration.
