We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of people across all industries in 70+ countries save time and money managing their hourly workforce so they can focus on what they do best, and be amazing.

This role is remote for the remainder of 2020, & until it is safe to return to the office.

We are looking for a Senior Security Engineer with a strong background in information security fundamentals to help us expand the Application Security function at Deputy.


Our Trust team is rapidly expanding!
Trust is the team responsible for ensuring that the Deputy platform lives up to the high expectations of the millions of people using it everyday. We work to continually minimise risk, while ensuring that customers have an excellent experience. 
This is your chance to help build the security and privacy team culture you’ve always wanted to work in. We support and encourage Diversity and Inclusion in our hiring process, and welcome a broad variety of skills and experiences into all our roles. 

Like many roles in startups, this is a varied position that will work across internal penetration testing, secure development training and advice, building internal security tooling, auditing compliance with policies and procedures, and more you can ask us about in the interview.


    • You have strong experience in information security fundamentals, you have been working in the industry for a number of years, and are looking to use your skills and experience to build a great AppSec function.
    • You have a background in software development or actively working with software development teams, we are looking for people who can build automated solutions at scale.
    • You are comfortable working with other areas of the business, we are a small team, you’ll need to influence rather than rely on authority.
    • You have strong presentation and written documentation skills, working together requires telling a story everyone can understand.
    • You are comfortable with taking on a “builder” mindset, you are ready to learn, and aren’t afraid to ask questions.


    • Familiar with software architecture, able to work with software engineers to understand their project, and give well reasoned opinions on topics larger than security.
    • Experience with web application development in PHP, Go and Javascript.
    • Experience with source code repositories, CI/CD pipelines, and associated security tooling (e.g., GitHub, GitLab, etc).
    • Secure SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle), DAST (Dynamic Application Security Testing), and SAST (Static Application Security Testing) experience.
    • Demonstrated understanding of web application penetration testing, secure coding and source code analysis. Bug Bounty history or presentations at Security Conferences will be highly regarded!
