We are looking for a seasoned engineering leader to build and grow the Qualia Security team. The Security team is responsible for application threat modeling, design and oversight of secure development practices, development of tooling for exploit prevention and intrusion detection, and educating the engineering organization on security best practices.

Security engineers need to have broad and deep technical knowledge. Security cannot be reduced down to a static bag of tricks. It requires sophisticated knowledge of how all software works and mature mental models of how to reason about the security of complex systems. Security engineers already possess the knowledge and mental models necessary to be successful in their role and are constantly working to improve them.

  • Develop tools to prevent, detect, investigate, and respond to security threats
  • Educate the engineering organization on security best practices by providing training and acting as a subject matter expert and mentor

The Experience We Are Looking For
