Unqork is an enterprise software company with a no-code platform that digitizes the entire client lifecycle and eliminates dependence on paper for financial services and insurance companies. The company’s patent-pending technology uses AI and machine transcription for risk assessment and digitization, utilizing each client’s existing product and underwriting rules, layered on top of legacy IT systems. The software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology creates custom client onboarding and servicing forms using a drag-and-drop interface which can be implemented within weeks instead of months – unlike most hard-coded technology builds. The result is an easy to use and streamlined front-end agent and consumer experience that significantly reduces operational costs and eliminates errors while accelerating sales and business growth.

Some of the world’s largest insurance and financial companies use Unqork to define new business rules and deploy products/applications seamlessly and effortlessly without relying on costly development and maintenance of a code base. Gary Hoberman, former CIO of Metlife, founded Unqork in 2017 with a team of hand-picked industry professionals and has created an ‘elegant paradigm shift’ in the way insurance and financial companies are able to operate.

The Opportunity:

The Information Security team at Unqork is committed to making our organization, products, and services as secure as possible. Product (Application) Security plays an integral role in defining the security narrative for the Product and Engineering teams, ensuring security is embedded into existing and new services Unqork launches. Product Security engineers use a pragmatic, empathetic, and timely approach to provide actionable advice while also considering the challenges in delivering high-quality products and services. Our mission is to enable Unqork's technology teams to safely and securely launch new initiatives and services promptly.

As the Lead Product Security Engineer, you will deeply understand the technology stack used at Unqork, and proactively identify and eliminate security vulnerabilities. Your focus is forward-facing, building tools and services that ensure the safety of the Unqork platform and its valued client data against commonly known attacks. You will lead within the Information Security team by scoping and reviewing enhancements and bug fix requests for potential security risks and testing services while mentoring your teammates to ensure they are delivering in line with our team culture and practices.

  • Act as the technical security resource and within engineering and product teams
  • Perform application threat modeling
  • Create the ongoing application security documentation and guidelines for product engineers
  • Coordinate and perform manual and automated code tests
  • Assist and participate in application penetration tests and dynamic and static code scanning
  • Perform ad-hoc application and code security scans
  • Analyze, document, and educate the team on root causes of common security issues within the codebase, and how to avoid them

What we’re looking for:

  • 7+ years of relevant work experience on an internal security team, working either on the offensive or defensive sides of security
  • Deep knowledge and experience focused on cloud technologies and hosting environments including AWS, Azure, and GCP
  • Experience working with Veracode Security tools, Metasploit, Burp Suite, fuzzing, and Jenkins strongly preferred
  • You're an engineer by trade, and have previous experience working within modern web development languages/frameworks: AngularJS, ReactJS, Python, MVC frameworks, microservices, and event-driven architectures
  • You have a demonstrated ability to understand and discover attack surfaces, navigate the source code comfortably, and keep your finger on the pulse of commonly known attacks such as cross-site scripting (XSS) and remote code execution (RCE)
  • Deep knowledge of cryptographic and ability to guide the organizational do's and don’ts
  • Experience implementing security tooling and solutions in the product lifecycle, including security tooling for the CI/CD pipeline

Unqork is an equal opportunity employer, and proud to be committed to diversity and inclusiveness. We will consider all qualified applicants without regard to race, color, nationality, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, disability or age.
