This job is no longer accepting applications.

The Company

Swan is the leading education focused Bitcoin-only onramp for retail customers, high net worth individuals and corporations looking to save in Bitcoin for the long term. We hire passionate Bitcoiners who want to work with a self-motivated and fully distributed startup team.

The Role

Swan is hiring a Director of Security. You’ll be working hands on with everything security related, from developing and auditing NodeJS code to ensuring best practices for security in AWS, to looking at internal tools and procedures, setting up, tuning, and monitoring security perimeter tooling, and working with third party teams for audits.

A deep expertise in at least one of the following areas is required, with broad experience across the other areas that will help you succeed in building a team and leveraging existing team members to level up our efforts.

Here are some things that will help you succeed here:

  • Deep knowledge of application security best practices
  • AWS security principles, OWASP, CIS Benchmarks, etc
  • Pen-testing / red-team experience and adversarial thinking
  • Experience in a fast-paced, ownership driven startup environment.
  • If you geek out on everything security related and like working on a passionate team of Bitcoiners that only care about doing what’s right for Bitcoin, you’ll be at home here.

Here's a bit about our culture:

  • We’re a small but growing team: Fully distributed across the world, Slack and video conferencing are huge here.
  • We’re very flat: Leadership is desired and encouraged, we hire people who care about the product they are working on.
  • We’re Bitcoiners: We find solutions that encourage Bitcoin principles. Many of us pull double duty alongside our main job, produce content for the Swan Signal blog or live show, and spend some of the day on Twitter educating the masses. We love Bitcoin, and it comes through in our daily chats, meetings, and actions.
