Senior Full Stack Engineer at Elevate Security
Berkeley, CA, US

Here at Elevate Security, we’re building the first-ever truly people-centric solution that’s focused on the human element as a core defense strategy for protecting organizations. By combining the powers of behavioral psychology and data science, we are creating a world where every employee becomes an organization's strongest security advocate.

We’re looking for exceptional and passionate people to help us build this future and redefine the burgeoning security landscape.

 

WHAT YOU'D WORK ON

There are few times when life shows up in your inbox with a golden ticket. This is one of those times! As co-founders of Elevate Security, we are looking for the most incredible people to join us on our journey.

We’re looking for phenomenal full-stack engineers to help architect and build out engaging experiences with greenfield technology — products you get to build from the ground up. It’s an excellent opportunity to get in from the beginning and help guide architecture and technology decisions while also growing with the company.

Our tech stack is a mix of Python, Django, Redis, Postgres, React, Docker, AWS, and more.

 

EXPERIENCE

You’ll definitely have very strong Python, Django, and Javascript experience and be comfortable with JS frameworks like React. We’re early enough that you’ll have a ton of input on the technical direction though. You should be very comfortable picking up new technologies quickly. We value engineers that have strong product sense and care deeply about the impact of the software they build.

Ideally, you’d have experience with migrating to AWS and quite a few of their cloud services, as well as microservice architectures.

 

WHY WORK FOR US

We’re a mission-driven startup that values individual diversity and skills. Here are some of our values. Hopefully, they resonate with you:

  • The best perk any company can have is great people
  • Embracing our diversity makes us stronger
  • Work when and where you work best
  • Do the right thing, even if it’s not easy
  • Learn from every opportunity
  • Choose to be transparent
  • Be genuine and optimistic
  • Listen, listen, listen and then get stuff done
  • Know that your expectation of yourself is higher than anyone else’s
  • Customer > Company > Team > Me

WHAT MAKES ELEVATE SECURITY A GREAT PLACE TO WORK?

  • We care about your career. At Elevate Security we encourage each other to constantly grow and expand our skills and knowledge. Mentorship is part of our culture as you work side by side with some of the brightest possible talent.
  • At such a small, tight-knit startup, you matter tremendously and your contributions make an immediate impact.
  • We have fun! No matter how fast we grow or how busy we are, we always remember to laugh and enjoy each other and our clients.
  • Balancing our careers and personal lives is important to us. We want you to work where and when you work best.
  • We have offices in Berkeley, California, USA and Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Our Berkeley HQ is close to BART with an easy commute.
  • Embracing our culture of diversity, constant learning, and collaboration makes us a better team and helps us build a better product.
  • We are mission driven. We never lose sight of why we do what we do.
  • We’re genuinely nice, optimistic, inclusive, and empathetic people. We won’t hire jerks.
