Head of Security

Back to all positions

As our Head of Security, you will lead all aspects of StarkWare’s security practices, implementation and operations, including product security, cloud security, IT security, data protection, CI/CD security, key management, vulnerability management, threat modeling and IAM.

Initially, this is a one-person-show, so we’re looking for a hands-on expert who can not only define what’s needed (review processes, training, etc.), but also perform much of the above themself. In addition, you will guide and coordinate others - both inside and outside of StarkWare - in doing the rest. The position will likely grow to a team over time.


The right candidate:

  • Is a university graduate in Computer Science (with a high GPA).
  • Has at least 5 years of experience in software development.
  • Has at least 3 years of hands-on security experience.
  • Has experience in defining and leading security practices for a significant company/product/operation.
  • Has good personal relations and communication skills.
  • Is curious by nature and a quick learner.

Ideally experienced with:

  • Penetration testing.
  • Blockchain technologies and applications.
  • Cryptography - primitives and protocols.
  • Linux operating system and its ecosystem.
  • CI/CD and CI/CD security.
  • Cloud security.
  • SSDLC.
  • Working in a startup environment.

If that’s you - we’d love to hear from you.
