< See all openings ClickUp is on a mission to make the world more productive. We're saving thousands of individuals one day a week with the fastest growing productivity app of 2020. We're the breakout momentum leader in every G2 category we're in and ready to take off!

ClickUp was an entirely product-led growth company for our first 2,000,000 users; spending $0 on marketing and growing from the viral nature of people sharing and using the platform. ClickUp is now the fastest growing productivity app at over 800,000+ teams and a $1 billion 🦄 valuation in under 3 years. Our team makes the world more productive, and finding exceptional people to solve challenging problems is a top priority as we execute on this vision.

We're looking for a Security Engineer for a brand-new, engineering-focused security team. We partner with and embed inside of existing product and infrastructure platform teams at ClickUp. The security team at ClickUp works to build and share technology including defensive security features and functionality, secure infrastructure and operational tools, security response tooling and processes, and security guidelines and guardrails.

You will work to build a culture of security enablement. Your focus on our infrastructure and product engineers will allow them to build and ship secure products based on Angular, Node.js, and PostgresSQL, all hosted in AWS.

You'll be a strategic partner working directly with various engineering teams across customer support, products and infrastructure, DevOps, security, and business leaders. We're scaling quickly, and are looking for Security Engineers who aren't afraid of this challenge!
The Role:
Perform some or all of the following, depending on skill-set:
  • - Design and build security features and defenses that protect the entire scope of the ClickUp platform, from applications through to infrastructure.
  • - Design and build tools to help with all stages in security prevention, detection, and response; across the full SDLC from code and test, through to deploy and operate.
  • - Embed yourself into existing engineering and product teams, acting as a "security player-coach".
  • - Perform threat models, implementation reviews, and security testing; review requirements and designs.
  • - Build security automation for and into the ClickUp platform; design and build secure-by-default infrastructure and applications.
  • - Monitor and analyze production security events and, as needed, provide in-depth incident analysis.
  • - Build relationships with other engineers, product managers, data engineers, operators, and security team members to enable shipping a secure product.
  • - Participate in incident response on-call rotations.
Qualifications:
  • - 4+ of experience in technology / software development.
  • - An ability to identify and provide a basic assessment of security threats.
  • - An understanding of security problems, paired with an ability to suggest solutions to software design problems.
  • - Cloud and SaaS experience.
  • - Ability to mentor others on technical topics, including security.
Desirable:
  • - Past experience with pushing technical initiatives; team, project, or indirect management of technology.
  • - Can facilitate a conversation rather than dictate it.
  • - 5+ years of software development experience and 1+ year of security-specific experience.
  • - Experience with Angular, Node.js, and PostgresSQL; or similar technologies.
  • - 2 years of AWS experience; Elastic Beanstalk, CloudFormation, IAM and least-privilege architectures.
  • - Experience with security tools; SAST, DAST, RASP, dependency checkers, SIEM.
  • - If you are a software engineer who is only starting on learning security, please do apply!
