About the company

Robinhood is democratizing finance for all. With customers at the heart of our decisions, Robinhood is lowering barriers, removing fees, and providing greater access to financial information. Together, we are building products and services that help create a financial system everyone can participate in.

Robinhood is a fast-growing company and was recognized as a CNBC Disruptor 50 and a LinkedIn Top Startup in 2019. We’re continuing to grow and are looking for incredible talent that can help us achieve our mission.

Robinhood is headquartered in Menlo Park, California, with offices in Lake Mary, Florida, Denver, Colorado, and London, UK.

About the role

Robinhood is seeking to hire a Senior Security Engineer to join our Security Team.

Your day-to-day will involve:

  • Working with engineers to build security into every step of the software development lifecycle
  • Looking beyond the OWASP Top 10 to find bugs in the complex business logic that keeps Robinhood running
  • Automating the boring parts of application security to save our team from burning out on repetitive work
  • Collaboration with external penetration testers and the bug bounty community to discover and fix new vulnerabilities in Robinhood’s systems

Some things we consider critical for this role:

  • 5+ years of experience as a Security Engineer or similar role
  • Strong foundation in computer and network security, authentication, security protocols and applied cryptography
  • Experience in web app security, vulnerability research, and penetration testing
  • Knowledge of network-based and system-level attacks and mitigation methods
  • Strong knowledge of at least one programming language

Feeling ready to give 100% to democratizing finance for all? We’d love to have you apply, even if you feel unsure about whether you meet every single requirement in this posting. At Robinhood, we’re looking for people invigorated by our mission, not just those who simply check off all the boxes.
