in Sydney, NSW

Job description

The most amazing thinkers—like NASA rocket scientists and Tesla engineers—are coming to us for solutions. We’re in the business of developing software to help teams everywhere get amazing ideas on the ground and into the world. Sound like an exciting place to start your career? You will be encouraged to use your imagination and try new things. You'll be guided (as we are) by our core values, and you'll be supported by some of the best minds in tech. We want you to have everything you need to do amazing work from the get-go.

 

Do you live and breathe security? Want to battle villains every day? Need to work on important problems, your way?

 

We're expanding our security capability and looking for smart people to help us. Does hacking our products and their code sound like your thing? As a new graduate in our security team, you'll be watching over our corporate environment and Atlassian cloud services which host many tens of thousands of customers. Using your skills and experience in various languages and tech stacks you will discover and fix security vulnerabilities within Atlassian products and services, hone your pen testing and Red Team skills by analysing those, participate in architecture and code reviews, threat modeling, and work closely with all the Atlassian engineering groups.

 

We would love for you to be a great developer but more importantly, you must be bright, motivated and have a passion for web app security. You should be comfortable writing code to get things done and not depend on third party products to do your job. You're fluent in OWASP Top 10 issues and know how to exploit those vulnerabilities. You view capture the flag competitions, crack-mes, and "unbreakable" products as challenges to your honour, hacking at them until they yield. If you already have a proven record in finding vulnerabilities, responsible disclosure or bug bounties that would be a great plus.

 

You love to innovate and to build your dreams. Ambitious and driven, you are excited about the opportunity to work with smart people on complex challenges. You’re a natural team player, inquisitive and enjoy dissecting and tackling hard problems (the more challenging the better). You have an interest in technology and think it has the power to change the world for the better. Whilst passionate about your work and delivering amazing quality, you’re still able to go fast, which means great instincts when it comes to the workload and using your time wisely. You’ll learn a lot, but you’ll also need to be able to stand up for your own ideas when the time comes.

 

This role is not eligible for Visa sponsorship.

 

On the first day, you'll expect to have:

  • Bachelors degree or higher in Computer Science / Software Engineering or a related technical field and graduating by January 2020
  • Great skills writing clean, efficient code
  • Deep understanding of data structures, in particular how they are implemented and how to apply them to solve problems
  • Familiarity with the application of common design patterns
  • You view capture the flag competitions, crack-mes, and "unbreakable" products as challenges to your honour, hacking at them until they yield.

It's great, but not required if you have:

  • Real passion for collaborating with colleagues to build technical solutions to hard problems
  • Have a real passion for Security Engineering or Security Intelligence, as demonstrated by previous internships, work experience, projects, or publications
  • If you already have a consistent track record in finding vulnerabilities, responsible disclosure or bug bounties that would be a great plus
