The Role

We are looking for a Staff/Senior Software Engineer to join our Security team.

As a member of the Security team, you’ll work across a wide range of areas to improve Linktree’s security posture. This ranges from product security work, such as building easy to use and secure authentication methods to platform work to ensure teams have easy-to-use and secure development tools available. If you’re excited by working with different teams and on a wide range of technologies, this role is for you.

What You’ll Own

  • The systems Linktree uses to secure our users’ accounts, incl. Authentication and bot mitigation systems.

  • Partner with our platform teams in securing our development tooling, incl. CI/CD pipelines and infrastructure primitives we make available to our development teams.

  • Partner with product and platform teams in securing our APIs and infrastructure estate.

Who We’re Looking For

  • You care about figuring out how to work backwards from a desired outcome and take pride in building the simplest possible solution to achieve that goal.

  • You care about the users of your systems and actively strive to build solutions that make their lives easier, not harder.

  • You get excited by, and are good at getting familiar with new technologies and existing systems written by others.

  • Experience with our stack is a plus: Typescript, Node.js, PostGreSQL. The rest of our stack includes GraphQL, AWS (S3, EventBridge, SQS, Lambda, ECS, DynamoDB, CDK) and Snowflake. Our monolith consists of a PHP code base.

  • Security experience is a plus.

P.S. If you don’t tick every box in this ad, please don’t rule yourself out. We take pride in inclusion and hiring incredible human beings with great potential over ticking boxes – so if this role resonates with you, hit that apply button!

Where and How We Work

We are a global and diverse group offering a truly flexible and family friendly work environment. Kids, pets, and the occasional delivery person are all actively encouraged to appear on our Zoom screens. All of us at Linktree work either fully remote or a flex hybrid approach.

We offer autonomy and flexibility in how you structure your days and weeks. There will be the need for some collaboration outside of your usual 9-5 being a global company, but we aim to work asynchronously where possible.

How we’ll help you thrive

Our approach to benefits considers the whole person and the unique contributions they bring to Linktree. We want the experience at Linktree to be one that enables people to truly thrive so we can Go Further Together. Some ways we support you:

  • An annual wellbeing allowance to use on things like (but not limited to) fitness memberships, development courses, childcare, travel, charitable donations, pet insurance, home office set up - the choice is yours!

  • 100% coverage (and 80% for your dependents) of your monthly premiums for medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance for US-based employees.

  • Employer contribution towards your retirement.

  • Generous time off for vacation, holidays, parental leave, volunteer time and other categories.

  • Employee Stock Option Program - we want each and every employee to share in the company’s success as we go further together.
