At ReversingLabs, our application security and threat intelligence solutions have become essential to advance cybersecurity around the globe. Funded by our recent Series B investment, we're now on a journey to expand adoption and accelerate growth, as well as to hire top talent across the security industry.

This is a game-changing opportunity. We know every application threatens businesses with new supply chain risks. ReversingLabs is the only company that can dissect any binary at the level of speed, scale, and explainability necessary to protect the enterprise end-to-end.

We are on a mission to help IT professionals concerned with securing their code from supply chain threats.

Sounds interesting?

If you wondered what that fuss about malware attacking developers in the news was all about, you can be part of our solution that secures the software release process for publishers and manages third-party risk for software buyers.

We are seeking extraordinary talent to help forge this transformational journey at ReversingLabs. We believe that your future role as a software threat researcher is extremely important to the success of our solution - the secure.software platform for software assurance.

To be comfortable in this role, you must love researching and writing about cybersecurity and software development. Also, you should be able to navigate through various developer communities and find various (and possibly dangerous) stuff, such as software supply chain attacks in packages. It is okay if you’re not exactly a world-class NPM or PyPI guru, as long as you know how to use software package managers in real life and are willing to learn a few new things along the way.

The good news is that you’re going to have plenty of top experts to learn from. You will be working closely with our product team, including other security researchers, developers, QA, product and program managers. Doing plenty of research in the developer communities and the software assurance field will be required for creating content, and also a great way for you to learn.

Near-native proficiency in spoken and written English is a must. You will be working with a lot of people from all around the world, including our team in the US and worldwide tech communities. You will create content for a general audience and for security experts alike, so you should know how to adapt it to clearly relay information. If you can explain complex concepts in easy-to-understand language - that’s great and it's a really important skill to truly excel in this role.

With time, we’ll expect you to come up with content ideas of your own. We highly value proactivity and creativity, and we know how to reward it properly while giving you all the support you need to be at the top of your game.
