Contrast Security named to Inc.'s “Best Workplaces of 2020”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 PositionThe Contrast Engineering team is growing leaps and bounds. We've created an opportunity for a team of mainly internally focused full stack developers providing application development support to our language agent teams. As a member of this team, you will get the opportunity and exposure to work across our five current languages of Java, .Net, NodeJS, Python and Ruby. As new languages are brought into our eco-system, you will evaluate and develop within those languages as well.This team is tasked with the unique opportunity to build engaging and demonstrable applications that are both vulnerable and non-vulnerable, but also support multiple frameworks and runtimes within each language. Developers on this team will receive exposure to a foundation of advanced application security topics working side by side with our software agent and security research teams. Many of the applications you build will be made accessible in our public GitHub repository and will be shared with our community of practice.The goal of this team is to build and curate functional applications within our compatibility matrix of web applications we support for each language. The team will build many combinations of applications based on framework, runtime, data store (relational or NoSQL). These applications will be vulnerable and non-vulnerable. They will be used for acceptance testing our software agents. Ultimately, this team will provide support to our product to ensure the greatest amount of accuracy in our findings, reliability in service with a running agent and ease of use of our integrations and capabilities.Traveling to an off-site event may be happen on an annual basis but this can be a fully remote position anywhere in the U.S.
