You will communicate and collaborate across the organization to design and implement impactful company-wide security processes. You'll have a large degree of autonomy and the ability to drive change and adoption across the organization with well-researched security solutions. 

You will be highly valuable to our organization as this is a critical role, as such, an above-market compensation package is on offer.

Your Impact

  • Oversee our entire security plan while influencing and driving adoption across the team
  • Partner closely with our founders and engineering team to develop, design and implement security solutions
  • Lead our risk program and establish best practices that will impact the security and long term success of Chainlink
  • Create independently, or collaborate with the engineering team, to write and ship security features
  • Research, document, and implement solutions that will ensure long term success of the Chainlink ecosystem

Our stack: Golang, TypeScript, Solidity, Postgres, Terraform, AWS

Job requirements

  • Software engineering background (CS/SE degree or equivalent experience)
  • 5 years of working experience in software engineering
  • 3 years of working experience in a related cybersecurity role
  • Experience with developing security plans, processes and controls
  • Experience with discovering vulnerabilities at design/system level
  • Experience across common vulnerability classes relevant to our tech stack
  • Proven ability to communicate across roles to drive security mindset across the company
  • Good knowledge of operational security
  • Experience with monitoring and alerting
  • Experience working in an early growth-stage company
  • Focus on improving real-world security, not compliance
  • Blockchain/cryptocurrency experience is a plus but not necessary

POI: This role is location-agnostic, and we employ engineers worldwide. However, we ask that some of your working hours overlap with Eastern Standard Time (EST).
