Principal Software Development Engineer, CTO – Application Security

Location: At GoDaddy the future of work looks different for each team. Some teams work in the office full-time; others have a hybrid arrangement (they work remotely some days and in the office some days) and some work entirely remotely.

This is a remote position, so you’ll be working remotely from your home. Once we can safely travel, you may occasionally visit a GoDaddy office to meet with your team for events or offsites.

This position may be a hybrid or fully remote position, as decided by your manager. If designated as hybrid, you’ll divide your time between working remotely from your home and an office location, so you should live within commuting distance. If designated as remote, you’ll be working remotely from your home and may occasionally visit a GoDaddy office to meet with your team for events or offsites. Your hiring manager can share more about this role’s hybrid or remote designation.

This position is not eligible to be performed in Alaska, Mississippi, North Dakota, or the Virgin Islands.

We treasure curiosity, communication, a bias towards collaboration and action and the desire to embrace and extend best practices and patterns. If you are the kind of person who can’t see something that isn’t right without a compulsion to make it at least just a little bit better before you put it back, we want to talk to you.

The Application Security Team develops continuous security tools to detect issues early in the development lifecycle & protect our customers’ data.

This security focused position will help write and implement tools to find, fix, prevent, and security issues in our code base. We work with GoDaddy’s software development teams develop more secure architectures while maintaining performance and usability of the product.

  • Strong knowledge of CI/CD tools and best practices (Jenkins, Pipelines)
  • Familiarity with Agile (Scrum) software development, Git/GitHub, and related tools
  • Basic knowledge of Security tools, CVEs and Top OWASP vulnerabilities.
  • Excellent communication skills are required to be able to convey technical issues and details to non-technical users

You might also have…

  • Experience with cloud platforms e.g. AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, etc.
  • Experience with Docker and Kubernetes
  • Experience with Security Development Life Cycle and Security tools

We’ve got your back… Enjoy our many benefits (My Wallet), including paid time off, 401k, equity grants and parental leave. Join one of our employee resource groups (Culture).
