About the Position
Contrast is looking for a talented Software Engineer with experience in Ruby to join our team, engineering a world-class instrumentation agent for analyzing the security of Ruby web applications. An ideal candidate is proficient in Ruby. They have 5 years or more experience as a software engineer, with at least a portion of that spent working with Ruby and are looking to deepen their understanding of Ruby’s unique characteristics, examining the internals of the language in order to enhance inherent or introduce novel dataflow analysis.
At Contrast, we take the responsibility of writing instrumentation agents very seriously. Our customers trust us enough to run our agents directly in their applications, oftentimes in their production environments. We're looking for a responsible engineer to exercise that power carefully, to help us build a quality, thoroughly tested agent that our customers run with complete confidence. As a Senior Engineer, you’ll lead the design and development of new features within the agent, our proprietary Gem used to instrument customer applications, sometimes on your own, sometimes leading more junior developers. In addition, you’ll support the team in the maintenance and improvement of the product, adding your own coding standards and practices to ours.
