About the Role

As an Application Security Engineer, you will improve the security of our web applications through threat hunting, vulnerability identification, and remediation guidance. You will work with other professionals across our Product, Engineering, and Design functions in the pursuit of this goal.

You will be a trusted partner across our multifunctional product pods as you bring the application security perspective to conversations and projects. There is an ever-growing breadth of knowledge in the application security space, and it can be a daunting task for product pods to keep up with everything, filter out the irrelevant or non-applicable information, and make effective decisions that promote security. You will help to bridge those gaps by providing actionable insights throughout the software development lifecycle and coach development teams on secure development best practices.

You will be an advocate and ally for our customers and their data as you uncover risk in our web applications. As such, your role will have a crucial impact on our nonprofits by ensuring the ongoing safety of their tenancy within our web applications.

This role reports to the Lead Security & Infrastructure Engineer and joins a small but growing security team; it will be an early contributor to the company's security strategies.

What You Will Do
  • Identify and describe threats and vulnerabilities to our web applications
  • Verify bug bounty reports
  • Work with Engineers across multiple, independent product pods to deliver and test appropriate controls

  • At least 1 year of experience in a web application security or development role
  • Working knowledge of OWASP Top Ten Web Vulnerabilities
  • Experience with static application security testing (SAST)
  • Experience with at least one dynamic application security testing (DAST) tool
  • Working knowledge of standard web application security controls (CSP, TLS, Cookie hygiene)
  • Working knowledge of standard web application authentication and authorization mechanisms (OAuth 2.0, OIDC, SAML, FIDO2)
  • Experience with at least one programming language - web application development is a nice-to-have
  • Experience in security for SaaS applications is a nice-to-have

About You
  • Well-developed communication skills, ability to explain complex problems, and to share and visualize findings with stakeholders in product, marketing, revenue operations, and senior leadership teams
  • Action-oriented, entrepreneurial, flexible and comfortable with ambiguity and managing priorities
  • Passion, humility, humor, integrity, positive attitude, mission-driven and self-directed
  • Committed to supporting a diverse, inclusive, and collaborative work environment

Market Opportunity

Every year, foundations and corporations award nearly $100 billion in grant deployments in the US alone. Such deployments play a major role in addressing some of society's biggest challenges, spanning social justice, pandemic response, environmental protection and everything in between. Yet the impact of this funding remains loosely captured, or at worst, untraceable. Additionally, 60 percent of nonprofit professionals say they don't use data to make decisions and more than one-third of nonprofits say they're incapable of gathering data on the impact of their programs. Resilia aims to close the funding deployment-impact tracking loop and empower nonprofits through data and capacity building through a combination of technology, analytics, and human capital.

Resilia's Formation platform empowers brand-new nonprofits to achieve tax exempt status while enabling annual compliance. Our Nonprofit platform provides capacity building support in fundraising, board management, program management and the collection of data. Finally, our Funder program enables funders to strengthen their grantees through on-demand technical assistance while helping them capture and communicate stories of impact.

With a first-to-market solution and a team of builders with extensive startup, nonprofit, and corporate experiences, Resilia is democratizing technology to solve some of the social good sector's biggest legacy challenges, while re-defining the notion of technology for good.
