Security Researcher

What we do at Detectify

Detectify was born from the simple idea that the internet is broken. Our founders are some of the best ethical hackers in the world. They have found critical vulnerabilities at tech giants like Google, Facebook, and Dropbox and used their hacker knowledge to build an advanced web application security scanner that is used by companies such as Spotify, Trello, and KING.

In addition to our internal security researchers, we collaborate with a global network of handpicked white-hat hackers to make sure our service is updated with the latest security threats. Based in central Stockholm, Sweden, we are currently a team of 50 employees and growing quickly.

The marketing team

Today, the marketing team consists of six persons and you will also work closely with the sales and tech teams. We are looking for a team player who is ambitious, driven, self-going and who wants to create unique security content that stands out quality-wise and gives ROI.

As a member of this team, you will be expected to serve as the subject matter expert, lead construction of security content, and contribute to the overall direction of the content of our Detectify Labs blog (labs.detectify.com).

Role and responsibilities

Our security content is a key part of our content marketing strategy, and you will work with the marketing coordinator and internal researchers to define the research agenda of our technical blog.

We also expect that you act as an ambassador for our brand and company by representing Detectify at international conferences and security events. Some traveling is required.
