Application Security Engineer

| New York

Overview

Our mission is to serve cancer patients and our customers by dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research. Our team is building a disruptive, oncology-specific software platform that connects cancer centers across the world on a common technology infrastructure to address key healthcare challenges.

Today, the Flatiron Health OncologyCloud™ platform includes the industry-leading electronic medical record for oncology, a first-of-its-kind analytics tool, patient portal, and integrated billing management. Our goal is to help cancer centers and life science companies leverage real-world oncology data at a scale and clinical depth never before seen, to advance cancer care and accelerate research.

Our security team embodies a collaborative, efficient, and flexible working environment. While responsibilities are clearly defined, we share a common purpose and goal: employing all measures to protect against threats to our business, because our technology governs the treatment of millions of cancer patients. For us, application security is way more than just code reviews and penetration testing. It's about the complete development workflows, defining a security culture, and advocating for security features (like 2FA) in systems. We are always looking for new ideas and trying to make sure the best ideas rise to the top of the heap. We focus on results and not just debate, in fact we are often architects, designers and engineers, not just advisors. 

Responsibilities

  • See our architectures, read our code, break the apps, and find the problems before the bad guys do (through penetration testing, ethical hacking, etc.).
  • Build frameworks, APIs, processes, and whatever else is necessary to keep our web applications secure.
  • Stay on the leading edge of security research and make sure the company responds to new things quickly.
  • Build application security champions. Teach engineers how to code secure.
  • Own the responsibility of securing our products!

About you

  • Have a strong foundation in and in-depth technical knowledge of application security, particularly web application security.
  • Sympathize with the complexity of being a developer and want to help make writing secure code easier.
  • Can read code like a book, and write enough code to get by (our tech stack is a diverse set of technologies running across both Windows and Unix platforms in the cloud).
  • Able to deal with the ambiguity associated with working in a fast paced and changing environment; self motivated and results oriented.
  • Have at least 2 years relevant work experience.
  • Have excellent interpersonal communication skills.

Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The most exciting part of being in my company is solving a real problem at scale through serious collaboration. Oncologists, software engineers, statisticians, business folks, etc. all have to come to the table together, as equals, to figure this one out. And we are doing it.

Amy

Chief medical Officer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

An engineer and oncologist work together over several weeks to build an algorithm from a naive prototype to a highly specialized and flexible rule set that can accurately represent the lines of therapy for 95% of patients within a specific disease subset.

How does the company support your career growth?

As engineering manager, I am invested in the professional development of the people I work with. I train team members by pulling them out of their comfort zones to the uncomfortable territory. At Flatiron, it is one of our values - greatness and comfort rarely co-exist.

Kevin

Software Engineering

At Flatiron, we believe that learning from the experience of every cancer patient is an imperative — it is the key to accelerating research and continuing to improve the quality of care. Our mission is to serve cancer patients and our customers by dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research.

Zach Weinberg

Co-Founder, President and COO

Instead of studying the cells, I now have the opportunity to write about the patients. I can tell their stories through the research lens and enable them to advance clinical cancer research through their experiences. I certainly never lose sight of the human behind the cell anymore.
