About the Role

 

We are looking for a senior software engineer to join our Product Security team. This role will initially be focused on authentication and authorization improvements, but the security team also has the unique opportunity to prioritize bold engineering projects across the company to better protect our customers.

 

The Product Security team helps Gusto move faster, securely. We’re a team of engineers who work to enable other teams to build products as quickly as possible while continuing to protect our customers. We help developers ship secure code by building security tools and services, providing security training and expertise, and advocating for best practices in authentication, authorization, and safe data handling across the company.

 

Here’s what you’ll do day-to-day:

  • Bolster security in core systems such as authentication, authorization, sensitive data storage, API design, and more.
  • Build software to keep our customers and company safe and secure.
  • Work on impactful engineering problems across Gusto.
  • Provide leadership in promoting security and software engineering excellence.

Here’s what we're looking for:

  • 8+ years of experience building software.
  • Experience with and understanding of authentication-related topics such as OAuth, multi-factor authentication, mutual TLS, and PKI.
  • Experience with and understanding of authorization strategies such as role-based authorization and attribute-based authorization.
  • Experience with any of these technologies is a plus: CanCan, Open Policy Agent, Doorkeeper, Keycloak, Devise, GraphQL.
  • We mainly use Ruby, JavaScript, and Kotlin.

 

Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm for small businesses, you will find a home at Gusto.
