Join the Ocrolus rocket ship!

Ocrolus is the leading intelligent automation platform that helps customers make faster and more accurate decisions. Ocrolus transforms documents into digital data and analytics within minutes. That’s why partners like PayPal, Plaid, and Square work with us. Ocrolus has raised over $100 million in venture capital, backed by Oak HC/FT, FinTech Collective, Bullpen Capital, and QED Investors, among others.

Ocrolus is a fast-growing financial technology organization with many emerging security threats and we are building a world-class security program to keep Ocrolus and our customer’s data secure.  We are looking for a diverse set of security practitioners to help us design, build, and scale security at Ocrolus.  We value critical thinking, creativity, data-driven and intelligence-driven approaches, and offensive experience.  We believe security is a collaborative and open process, where security is a partner to help achieve business goals securely.  We believe in saying “yes, and” instead of “no” when recommending security objectives.  We don’t believe in using fear or penalty for enforcement of security policies and processes, and we will always provide evidence and justification for security controls.
