Job Description

At ProjectDiscovery, we are on a mission to bring security to everyone.

Our suite of open source tools powers a vibrant community that is among the largest in the infosec community. Our projects have accumulated over 50k stars on Github with monthly active users in the hundreds of thousands and year-over-year growth of over 400%. 8 of our tools recently made the Open Source Security Index, a list of the fastest growing open source security projects on GitHub, which is more than any other startup or corporation. Our tools are trusted by security and engineering teams at top internet companies like HashiCorp, Robinhood, Gitlab, CapitalOne, Fastly, Starbucks and many others.

Our team of 35 is tight-knit, scrappy and passionate about making our digital world more secure. We are globally distributed and encourage our employees to work anywhere in the world. Fresh off $25M of Series A funding, we’re ready to take on the application security market and we’re looking for driven and talented people to join us.
