Security Engineer at Earnest
San Francisco, CA, US
Want to revolutionize finance?

Earnest is a next-generation financial technology company disrupting consumer lending. We are a quickly growing team of math nerds, designers, computer geeks and relentless innovators going after a huge market by creating a company built on flawless design, powerful software advanced data science and an incredible client experience. We believe that if we fundamentally re-engineered banking it would look and feel completely different to how it does today – and that is what we have set out to do.

Our team is made up of people who are both inspired innovators and results driven -- individuals who are prepared to roll up their sleeves, to challenge the status quo, to venture far beyond what's comfortable, and who are able to fail and get back up again.

The Role:

We're looking for an experienced Security Engineer to help build tools and processes to protect our data and infrastructure. You will put in place monitoring systems, build security tools and define procedures. You’ve got a penchant for keeping security as painless as possible while raising the bar throughout the company.

Our teams decide how they work best. This allows people to take greater ownership and approach problems creatively. We find value in code reviews, pair programming and paying down technical debt. Every day we deploy code and launch features with few internal bureaucratic barriers to get closer to our vision of a better, more just bank. We value a diversity of perspective and evaluate ideas on merits.

Our Ideal Candidate:

5+ years of experience as a software or systems engineer.
Has primarily focused on security for at least 2 years
Is strong in at least one modern scripting language (ex. Python, Node.js, Ruby) and Unix Shell scripting
Enjoys writing readable and maintainable code
Has a solid understanding of web application architecture
Wants to automate everything
Familiarity with directory services and centralized login systems (OneLogin, Okta)
Qualified applicants with criminal histories will be considered for the position in a manner consistent with the Fair Chance Ordinance.
