About Riskatto:

Riskatto is Ransomware Readiness Software. We help organizations prepare and lessen the impact from significant malware events in their network. Specifically, our goal is to help customers answer the question, "how bad would it be if ransomware executed in my network?". With this information, CISOs and their boards can make more accurate strategic decisions surrounding cyber insurance policies and investments in IT security. Similarly, information security teams can use this information to implement additional security controls to reduce their internal attack surface.

Riskatto was born out of FortyNorth Security, a penetration testing and red teaming company. We're a small team of security engineers and you'd be our first full-time software engineer hire. We're not looking for you to lead product development, but this isn't a typical Software Engineer I role on a large team. You'll be expected to operate independently with little oversight and lots of discretion to make design decisions.

About the Role:

We are looking for an experienced Full Stack Django Engineer who will help us develop and enhance our Django-based web application and APIs. You should have 1-3 years minimum experience with each of the following technologies: Django, the Django Rest Framework (DRF), Celery, JavaScript, Docker, Django ORM and AWS.

The first two months will largely be focused on getting our MVP production-ready and then you'll transition to a dual-hatted role: (1) bug squashing (as required) and (2) new feature development. Security is a top priority, so our ideal candidate will be fluent in topics like the OWASP Top 10 and have opened up Burp Suite before.

Wondering if you should apply if you're not a Django expert? While we appreciate your interest, we really need someone with significant Django experience that will not need any ramp-up time to understand the nuances of Django, Django's ORM, DRF, etc.

You'll report to our Head of Product, but we're a small team, so you'll have full visibility into the entire business and be able to work with cross-functional groups. Also, we're very much at the MVP stage of product development, so if you'll have plenty of opportunities to voice your opinions on new features and play an active role in the product roadmap. We see the ideal candidate as an engineer that has put their time in as a level I or II engineer and is looking to gain experience to progress into a team lead role.
