Application Security Engineer


A little flex time

Dog friendly

What do we do?

Paddle offers SaaS companies a completely different approach to their payments infrastructure. Instead of assembling and maintaining a complex stack of payments-related apps and services, we’re a Merchant of Record for our customers, taking away 100% of the pain of payments fragmentation. It’s faster, safer, cheaper, and, above all, way better.

In May 2022, we joined forces with ProfitWell. ProfitWell provides BI solutions that improve retention and monetization automatically through unmatched subscription intelligence. As one team and one platform, we offer the "done for you" approach to SaaS payments, billing, and growth.

We’re backed by investors including KKR, FTV Capital, Kindred, Notion, and 83North and serve over 3000 software sellers in 245 territories globally.

The role

Working as part of Paddle’s InfoSec team, you will drive and implement security best practices across the organisation.

As a Security Engineer, you will work across all of Paddle’s products and enterprise IT estate, identifying security issues and opportunities for improvement to help defend Paddle from cybersecurity threats. You will identify security vulnerabilities and opportunities for improvement across Paddle, and advise or implement fixes for issues found.

What you'll do

  • Perform code reviews to identify security issues, and propose or implement solutions
  • Assist with management of our vulnerability disclosure program
  • Use and manage tools including Snyk and Lacework to drive security automation across our products
  • Instrument the Paddle environment to enhance our SIEM capability to drive actionable events and intelligence
  • Provide training and coaching to engineering colleagues on secure coding
  • Gain a broad knowledge of Paddle’s platform and identify opportunities to improve security within code and cloud infrastructure
  • Keep your finger on the pulse with the ever-changing cybersecurity landscape, and guide Paddle to stay ahead of emerging threats

We'd love to hear from you if you are:

  • Are passionate about IT security, and can leverage your software development skills to assist with identifying and resolving security issues across the tech stack
  • Can work collaboratively as part of a team, and autonomously with high level direction
  • Have experience with OWASP and security tooling
  • Are familiar with AWS and have awareness of how to harden application deployments in the cloud
