Head of Detectify Crowdsource
Product and Technology – Stockholm
Who we are
At Detectify we believe that the internet is broken from a security point of view, and we're working on making it more secure. Our founders are some of the best white hat hackers in the world and they've legally hacked tech giants like Google and Facebook. With this experience, we've built a cutting-edge automated website vulnerability scanner to help customers secure their web applications and fix vulnerabilities before they are discovered by malicious hackers. We want organisations and developers to learn about the security risks in their own code and improve it, while getting more time to do what they love; build awesome products.
In addition to our internal security research team, we collaborate with 150+ handpicked white-hat hackers. We automate this knowledge through our tool to ensure it is the most up-to-date security service in the world. We are trusted by some of the biggest and most widely known companies in the world, such as King, Trello and Spotify. We believe this takes us one step closer to making the internet a more secure place for all its users.
Our vision for Detectify Crowdsource
It all started with an idea that sounded really cool. The idea was to collect the knowledge of the world’s best white-hat hackers and make it available to everyone. This turned into a Crowdsource platform where we initially sent out a small amount of invitations to a couple of handpicked security researchers. Today, the Detectify Crowdsource platform has over 150 of the best white-hat hackers in the whole world as members. They work together with us to provides valuable security research that we transform into knowledge in our scanner which in turn helps to protect our customers' solutions, apps and web pages.
It’s now time to scale up. To be able to do this we need to find a brilliant person that wants to take on the role as Head of Detectify Crowdsource. This means that you are responsible for helping us further establish and grow what is today the biggest platform for white-hat crowdsourced vulnerability information in the world. Doing that and at the same time making sure that we focus on bringing business value to our customers.
We believe that our next Head of Detectify Crowdsource has a background in project management including both resource and finance responsibilities. In your new role, you will be managing a variety of both internal and external tasks related to the Crowdsource community. This can mean growing the number of active members and submissions, organizing events for hackers in the community and spread the power of Crowdsource to our clients. It also means that you manage our internal Crowdsource team by helping them to prioritize which vulnerability research that should be built into features and optimizing the implementation lead time of new functionality. Previous experience as a team lead is ideal.
We also find it beneficial if you like public speaking since you’ll be the person reaching out to both hackers and clients about the brilliance of Detectify Crowdsource in event, lectures and promotion material.
