MATASANO SECURITY - Chicago. New York City. Sunnyvale.

Application Security Consultant

Full-Time, work visa sponsorship available

~-,._.,-~'`^`'~-,._.,-~'`^`'~-,._.,-~'`^`'~-,._.,-~'`^`'~-,._.,-~

What excites you and ignites your muse?

When I was a child I'd often get in trouble for 'breaking' things. Teachers, parents, and other authority figures didn't understand what motivated this behavior, but with the benefit of hindsight I now do. I wasn't breaking things at all, I was exploring them. I was learning how they worked by taking them apart and seeing them laid bare. Sometimes, I'd manage to put them back together and occasionally they'd even work!

Once, when I was about twelve or thirteen, I took apart a mechanical bedside alarm clock, laid all the gears out organized by size and was promptly grounded for 'destroying' it. While serving my punishment, I went to work re-assembling it, with one small change. What had previously been a cheap cardboard clock face was replaced with a piece of translucent contact-paper, with numbers careful stenciled in their proper places. I loved that clock. Every morning I'd wake up, see it, and glance deep into its inner workings. That visual reminder that I'd been curious and unlocked its secrets was how I started mornings throughout my formative years.

Somewhere along the line, I lost track of where that clock ended up. It may be gone, but the spirit it demonstrates remains one of my strongest motivators. I've found no better outlet for this drive to understand the inner workings of things than software security assessment.

At Matasano, we treat our client's applications like I did that clock. We take them apart, examine them piece by piece, and arrive at an understanding of what makes them tick. Only after arriving at this can we find and exploit vulnerabilities. We slap a clear face on those applications, with the numbers carefully identifying any discovered flaws. We take them apart and 'break' them, not to be destructive, but to be constructive through understanding them. Thankfully, we don't even end up grounded. :)

There's no area of computing that draws on as many skills, but programming, debugging, protocol analysis, reverse engineering, systems administration, network engineering and cryptographic analysis aren't what make great AppSec consultants. You need to find what motivates you. For me, being tasked with quickly developing a deep understanding of unfamiliar applications plays right into the mindset that led me to explore that clock.

So, again I'll ask, what excites you?

Chicago, IL or REMOTE - Full Stack Engineer @ Spantree - http://www.spantree.net

    Web Front End: Angular, Backbone, React 
    Web Back End: Spring Boot, Grails
    Data Stores: Elasticsearch, Postgres, MongoDB, Redis, Couchbase, Neo4J
    Clustered Systems: Mesos, Marathon 
    Systems Management: AWS, Docker, Docker Compose (Fig), Vagrant, Puppet 
    Build Automation/CI: Gradle, Grunt, CircleCI, Jenkins, Sonar
    Test Automation: Spock, Selenium, Mocha, Jasmine
Who we are

============

Spantree is a boutique software engineering firm based in Chicago, with some members scattered around the western hemisphere. We're looking for an engineer who's not afraid to tinker and break things. You should enjoy solving tough problems, coming up with novel solutions and delivering a polished product.

We're a small team with a fairly flat organizational structure. Everyone has specialties, but everyone is encourage to work on every aspect of a project.

We love sharing and open source. We constantly hunt for better and smarter ways to do things. And, since we're often pushing our software and our systems, you should feel comfortable communicating with developers in the open source community. Pull requests to open source projects are highly encouraged.

What we work on

==============

Our clients range from small and scrappy startups to large enterprise companies. We have 3-7 projects going at any point in time. We tend to focus on greenfield development, building web applications from the ground up. We also work on integrating the old with the new, bringing technologies like Mesos, Elasticsearch and Drools to large companies. Helping people make better decisions is the central theme of most of our projects. This can take the form of a search engine to help people find interesting stuff to do on a Saturday night, a complex rules-oriented workflow management system for evaluating health insurance claims, helping people find the right doctor, or a matchmaking and scheduling system to help people book face-to-face meetings at conferences. In the next year or two, we also plan to get into product development, taking our experiences solving the same sort of problems for multiple clients and rolling them into a generic framework which we plan to open source and support directly for our clients and the rest of the world.

Contact us

==========

Drop us a line at jobs@spantree.net and tell us a bit about yourself. If you have a resume or CV, feel free to pass that along as well. Github and LinkedIn profiles are also helpful. We're looking forward to hearing from you!
