With our recent round of funding, we have opened up numerous API security career opportunities around the world, both in-office (Sunnyvale, CA and Cincinnati OH) and remote. You can review the available API security openings here. But before you do, I thought I would update my 2018 blog on what it’s like to work here.
Obviously, the biggest change between 2018 and now is the notion of “office or not.” We have always embraced remote working, although not as a formal policy. With the pandemic, we have formally embraced it – how many organizations can tell you that they have customer success engineers in both Anchorage, Alaska, AND Newfoundland, Canada?
The other significant change since 2018 is we have added API discovery, inventory tracking, risk analysis, and remediation to our existing ML-based API threat protection, bringing to market the most comprehensive API Security Platform on the market. Why? Today, everything we do relies on APIs. Modern cars, your favorite mobile app, frequently used shopping site, and finance management all use APIs as their underlying connective tissue to deliver an engaging end-user experience. For these same reasons, threat actors love APIs, with Gartner predicting that by 2022 API attacks will become the most-frequent attack vector, causing data breaches for enterprise web applications.
The expansion was easy for us – we have been protecting APIs for our F500 customers for years now, using patented, ML-based behavioral fingerprinting to natively detect and mitigate attacks and vulnerabilities hiding in plain sight among legitimate traffic. With our API Security Platform, customers can deploy runtime protection while also analyzing their APIs to uncover and remediate developer errors before they are exposed. Something we call Shielding Right While Shifting Left.
API Security is exploding and we are hiring staff for significant growth over the next few years. We are looking for talented individuals, working anywhere, who want to join a fast-paced organization to deliver and support the most comprehensive API security solution on the market. If the mission and culture I discuss below are a fit, then slip on over to the API Security careers…
