VP Engineering

What we do at Detectify

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

We also collaborate with a global network of handpicked white-hat hackers who continuously provide us with valuable security research. Our crowd-based security network allows us to bring in the best independent security researchers in the world and automate their findings into our tool.

Today we are one of Stockholm’s fastest growing startups which just secured €21 million in a Series B round, together with Balderton Capital. 

What you’ll get to do

The Engineering Department at Detectify consists of a diverse cross-functional mix of people and technical competencies. In your role as VP of Engineering, you’ll be responsible for the development of the Engineering Department and its members.

Who you are

You are someone with an interest in complex technology, as well as in people.
