ABOUT VTS
VTS is the fastest-growing Proptech company in the history of commercial real estate (CRE). We have transformed a $15 trillion dollar industry with our award-winning platform which is used by more than 750 of the world’s leading landlords to manage their assets, tenants, and leasing processes. We’re continuing to expand our product offerings and are building the industry’s first and only end-to-end leasing marketplace, truva.com. Truva will enable landlords to market their available spaces more effectively, and help tenant rep brokers and their tenants easily find and lease space online – a process that has traditionally been offline and difficult.
It’s an exciting time to join the VTS team – we recently reached unicorn status after raising $90 million in series D funding led by our clients (believed to be the largest venture financing in the history of commercial real estate software), we recently made the Forbes Cloud 100 list of the hottest private cloud companies, and were named one of Crain's best places to work!
Our headquarters are in NYC, but we have hubs in other major US cities, Toronto, CA and London, UK.

We're growing at an incredible pace and are looking for an experienced Application Security Engineer to help make VTS a more secure application and protect our customers against security threats.
You will work closely with our engineering teams to ensure security is part of VTS technology design and development workflows. Code reviews, security architecture reviews, and mentorship of engineers will be some of the tools you can wield to accomplish this.
Additionally, you will assist with research and development of projects that we could implement in-house to push the state of the art of application security that will be built into our products.

  • Perform application security software and configuration reviews spanning a wide range of digital technologies (web, mobile, embedded)
  • Perform cloud infrastructure reviews to ensure we build in a safe-by-default manner, minimizing access risks
  • Support third-party audits of our application, including SOC2 and Pen Tests
  • Empower developers to do their job securely without creating unnecessary friction
  • Educate your fellow engineers about security in application code and infrastructure
  • Promote security within VTS
  • Recommend new security products and technologies
  • Advance your personal knowledge of application security to stay on the bleeding edge

What Makes You Awesome for this Role:

  • 3+ years of experience and knowledge of network and web related protocols (e.g., TCP/IP, UDP, IPSEC, HTTP and BGP)
  • Experience protecting against and mitigating real-world attacks (DDoS, XSS, session-hijacking, SQL injection, CSRF, etc)
  • Diverse range of security experience at the enterprise level (information, application, network, and IT)
  • Knowledge of modern development and deployment processes used by consumer technology organizations
  • Solid understanding of web, mobile, and embedded systems software development
  • Solid understanding of modern developer platform and CI/CD practices
  • Solid experience with web, mobile, and embedded systems application pentesting
  • Experience reviewing source code (Rails/Java/ObjC/PHP/NodeJS/JS/etc)
  • Experience reviewing cloud provider configs and deployment
  • Solid experience using a scripting language such as Python, Ruby, etc.
  • Solid understanding of Linux architecture and security
  • You want to crush entire bug classes, not play whack-a-mole
  • You want to work in a fast-paced, high-growth startup environment that respects its engineers and customers

An Insider's view of VTS

What are some social events your company does?

I spend a large part of my week at work, so being around great people is very important. The vibe at VTS is very friendly, and there are plenty of opportunities to share knowledge and to socialize, including brown bags, catered lunches, happy hours, team outings, and other events.

Rafael

Staff Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I collaborate with other teams on the company when there’s a piece of code that I’m working on that relates to another topic or domain expertise, I’ll ask for help. Everyone’s really into the idea of collaborating because we know that it’ll create a better product!

Anisha

Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

VTS has a culture of constant learning--the most seasoned members of our team are still humble and curious. I’m challenged daily to keep reading, trying new things, and sharing my experience. VTS brings in experts to keep us learning, and I’m given coaching and access to resources that help me grow. I feel like everyone here wants me to succeed.

Chrissy

Director, Product

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

A creative environment is critical for great marketing! The main way I try to do this is encourage everyone's ideas - and recognize that while I may have more experience, this is the first time for all of us at this company, so my job is to guide the team towards great ideas, not be the source of all of them.

Amy

Chief Marketing Officer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

This year we completely redesigned our product strategy process. Several cross-functional forums provide an avenue where anyone in the company can suggest projects and influence prioritization. Feedback on the new process has been incredibly positive. It’s helping to keep the whole company aligned on our most promising and impactful initiatives.

Niall
