GuardRails provides continuous security feedback that empowers developers to find, fix, and prevent vulnerabilities and enables teams to create web and mobile applications securely, without needing external expertise.
With GuardRails, the objective is not to try to remove all potential vulnerabilities, but to remove the most obvious ones; those that would be easiest to exploit and cause the highest damage: "there are so many vulnerabilities and attack vectors... Especially, if we limit ourselves to the Top 10 in the OWASP ranking, there has not been much evolution over the last 10 years".
GuardRails is designed as a platform to make open source security tools easily accessible, by initially integrating them with GitHub pull requests; Support for GitLab and BitBucket will be added later. The platform performs static analysis of the source code to detect potential vulnerabilities, including unsecured use of SQL queries, regular expressions, dangerous functions, poorly managed authentication, file management or dangerous configuration, etc. Dependencies are also analysed for known vulnerabilities. The platform also tracks hard-coded secrets.
As GuardRails and our core product continues to grow, we are building a dedicated team that will own key parts of our platform. This team will have the autonomy needed to ship value to our users and customers.
As part of this team, you'll work with modern technologies to continue advancing our core product as we pursue our vision to make application security a commodity and empower all development teams around the globe to move fast and be safe.
We’re looking for driven, autonomous and experienced full stack engineers that are keen to take ownership in helping to evolve what GuardRails has to offer.
You'll code and build features in cross-functional feature teams, that are powered by a full CI/CD environment.
5+ years of experience designing and building a production-level web application, including:
Deep architectural understanding of web applications
Understanding of website lifecycle from a performance point of view
Great creative and innovative problem-solving skills
Initiative and the ability to work independently and in a team
Interest to learn more about new technologies (such as languages and frameworks)
If you have some of these skills, even better:
Experience with monitoring techniques and tools.
Experience with continuous delivery for production environments.
Experience with agile software development methodologies like Kanban or Scrum
You are a great fit if:
You are no stranger to delivering SaaS web applications
You enjoy to move quickly and iteratively and believe that shipping early is best
You're are confident with Git, GitHub and Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment workflows
You enjoy working in teams and are a proactive communicator
You like to start new things, see them through to production, and learn from your mistakes
You're interested in security and developer tooling
Besides being a key contributor to our platform, as part of our engineering team, we have a weekly on-call rotation. You'll take part in the rotation for a week every couple of sprints. You will start your rotation with an experienced team member as your backup.
Our users and customers are the heart of GuardRails and as such everyone on the team takes part in customer support, guided by our more senior members. The feedback loop is crucial to improve GuardRails and incorporating the requirements into our roadmap.
