Applications Security Engineer - International Remote - Contract

full-time Bugcrowd Prague

An innovator in crowdsourced security testing for the enterprise, Bugcrowd harnesses the power of more than 60,000 security researchers to surface critical software vulnerabilities. Bugcrowd provides a range of vulnerability disclosure and bug bounty programs that allow organizations to commission a customized security testing program that fits their needs.

Application Security Engineer

At Bugcrowd, we handle application security assessment at an epic scale. As an Application Security Engineer (ASE) you will curate and manage the incoming security vulnerability submissions to some of the world’s biggest companies’ bug bounty programs. Here are just a few of the reasons why we are the best:

  • A tenure at Bugcrowd often means you have worked on not only one company’s security program but potentially on hundreds.
  • As an ASE at Bugcrowd you will be exposed to the Internet’s best security researchers and their cutting-edge security testing methodologies. Our ASEs quickly become technically fluent in obscure/complex XSS, SQLi, XXE, IDOR, SSTI, SSRF, and many other vulnerability types. There is no other organization that offers the learning opportunity that Bugcrowd does.
  • You will be exposed to things outside of your comfort zone. We routinely run security programs for cars, IoT devices, embedded systems, mobile applications, and more!
  • We have an awesome team and tons of perks. We’ve even been selected as one of “The 10 Coolest Security Startups Of 2016” by crn.com.

ASE Responsibilities:

An ASE is responsible for the ongoing triage and validation services of Bugcrowd managed programs. Under the direction of the Director of Technical Operations, you will take incoming submission data and curate it for validity, accuracy, and severity as well as communicate directly with Bugcrowd’s clients or researchers when additional information is required. ASEs also handle Incident Response – escalating and communicating about the highest severity bugs to clients. ASEs need to have strong knowledge of OWASP Top Ten type vulnerabilities. They also usually require a strong skill set in one scripting/development language, often to assist with the design or development of tooling for improving the triage/validation process. The ASE position is perfect for security professionals looking to take their skills to the next level.

Required Skills:

  • Bachelor’s degree or previous security consulting experience
  • Published and demonstrated passion for security assessment research
  • High proficiency with Burp Suite (or any other interception proxy) and a working level of experience with other industry standard tools (nmap, sqlmap, anything included in Kali Linux)
  • Ability to execute on individual projects but still contribute to the team
  • Ability to complete tasks on time
  • Strong organization, influencing, and communication skills
