Our mission and where you fit in

Our ambitious team at Employment Hero is on a quest to transform employment, making it easier and more valuable for everyone. Our world-class software is the easiest way for small and medium-sized businesses to manage HR, payroll, employee engagement, and benefits.

Since our inception in 2014, we've had enormous growth (100% YoY), now serving 300,000 businesses globally, with 2 million+ users on the platform, reaching unicorn status in 2022 - and we have no plans of slowing down.

There’s never been a more exciting time to join one of the fastest-growing global unicorns, so let’s see if we could be a match!

In your role, you'll be focused on…

We are looking for experienced software development engineers (Intermediate/Senior) with a focus on software security, or former security experience. You will take ownership of detecting and remediating security vulnerabilities within our applications, through a combination of automated tooling and manual detection. You will have the opportunity to work on a diverse range of products, across Ruby on Rails, TypeScript, .NET, and ReactJS. You will work closely with the engineering teams, platform teams, and security teams to ensure a good security posture across all of our applications.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Review security vulnerabilities found in automated tooling, such as SonarCloud, and rule out false positives and prioritise actual issues.
  • Manually inspect the code and test the running applications to detect additional security vulnerabilities.
  • Working primarily in Ruby on Rails, either fix the issues directly or work with respective code owners to prioritise the resolution of the issue.
  • Ensuring both a tactical and strategic approach to security across an engineering department of over 300 engineers.
  • Drive continuous improvement through the evaluation and adoption of new technologies, tools, and methodologies.
  • Collaborate with highly respected Software Development Engineers in a high performing and supportive environment.
  • Demonstrate your passion for secure development across technically challenging development projects.
