Senior Software Engineer, Security

| Greater LA Area
At GOAT Group, the Engineering team is an integral part of our dynamic company. By joining the team, your skills will be front and center, working alongside other passionate individuals to solve problems and build software. From launching compelling new consumer experiences, tackling global logistics challenges to scaling infrastructure to facilitate our rapid growth – technology is essential to driving our vision forward. The work you do will change the way the world shops, while also empowering entrepreneurs, including individual sellers, brands and boutiques.
As an engineer focused on security, you’ll be critical in providing the core authentication and authorization services and frameworks that GOAT product engineers leverage consistently across the organization. By abstracting away complexity and enforcing security guarantees, you will enable developers to iterate quickly and focus on building while ensuring no compromises on security are made. 
We’re looking for a senior engineer with a strong background or interest in security and building well-designed abstractions. You should be comfortable in dealing with lots of moving pieces, have exquisite attention to detail, and adept at communicating and working cross-functionally.

In this role you will:

  • Work with a wide range of systems, processes and technologies to solve problems at scale from end-to-end.
  • Build new services and frameworks for GOAT product teams 
  • Serve as a role model for our high engineering standards and bring consistency to the many codebases and processes you will encounter
  • Collaborate with stakeholders across the organization such as product, application security, and infrastructure 
  • Have an opportunity to integrate and further develop your security expertise

You may be a fit for this role if you:

  • Have a strong technical background, including 8+ years of experience building impactful products or systems.
  • Enjoy doing anything it takes to solve problems, and seeing projects through to completion
  • Take delight in crafting great, easy-to-use security abstractions and find innovative ways of increasing adoption of these tools
  • Take pride in designing, building, and maintaining APIs, services, and systems at scale
  • Reason clearly about security and product tradeoffs, while also balancing such priorities and decisions
  • Find improving engineering standards, tooling, and processes rewarding
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts
  • Uphold best practices in engineering, security, and design
