Company Description

Etsy is the global marketplace for unique and creative goods. We build, power, and evolve the tools and technologies that connect entrepreneurs with buyers around the world. Etsy, Inc.'s 'house of brands' portfolio has expanded to now include four individually distinct ecommerce brands – Etsy, fashion resale marketplace Depop, musical instrument marketplace Reverb, and Brazil-based handmade goods marketplace Elo7. As an Etsy employee, you’ll tackle unique problems alongside talented coworkers committed to Keeping Commerce Human. We're large enough that you'll focus on meaningful, complex challenges, but small enough that you can make a rewarding impact.

Etsy Security seeks a senior engineer to join the Application Security team. As part of the larger security team, we help product teams build secure software, and we also develop and maintain security-critical parts of our web application. We do this by being involved in design for larger features, reviewing code, developing threat models, and leading security initiatives.

This role is a great opportunity for a strong developer interested in application security since you’ll be designing and implementing security-critical features. You’ll use threat models and penetration testing results to drive and prioritize development projects. 

What’s it like working at Etsy? Etsy’s company mission is to “Keep commerce human” and this focus on personal connection informs everything we do. You’ll be collaborating with peers who prize resourcefulness and experimentation as paramount in an environment that affords a rich benefits package and ample career growth.  If this appeals to you, we would love to speak further about your future on Etsy Security.

This is a full-time role located in Brooklyn, NY, and open to remote candidates. Etsy offers three different work modes to meet the variety of needs and preferences of our team: Flex mode for candidates who are comfortable traveling to an office location 2+ times per week, Remote mode, and Office-based mode.
