Senior Software Engineer Backend at Havoc Shield

Hello from Havoc Shield! 

We’re A Small Team of Passionate Technologists, Entrepreneurs, and Democratizers making a professional cybersecurity program accessible to small and vulnerable companies. It’s kind of like TurboTax for small business cybersecurity in that we take the ocean of complexity that is risk mitigation, vendor management, policies, recovery, and orchestration and we bake it into a step by step action plan that non-experts can execute on.

At Havoc Shield, we know that the workplace dynamic is changing and we have changed with it. Your day will not be broken up into countless meetings, distractions that could wait and unnecessary fire-drills. We believe in small teams. Small teams are fast and nimble. Small teams mean less bureaucracy and less management and more getting things done.

We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer who has at least 6 years experience in backend web development, with at least two of those years working for a startup. You’ll ultimately own several software components, and you’ll participate in product planning and testing. 

Tech Stack: Our platform uses the PHP framework Laravel and the Javascript framework Vue tied together with the InertiaJS library for a SPA-like experience without the maintenance overhead. Our platform is backed by a MySQL database and relies on the N8N workflow engine and the RPA framework via Robocorp for out-of-band tasks. All of our servers are hosted on AWS, and our code is hosted on GitHub. Although we're currently a small team, we use modern methodologies, local environments coordinated by Docker, code reviews, continuous integration, etc. for software development. 


About You 

You love building. You have at least six years of experience as a Software Engineer building scalable web-applications, with at least two of those years working for a startup. 

You excel working on a team and mentoring others. You enjoy being part of a team that solves problems together, collaborating on ideas and working to meet team goals. You like pairing up with teammates when someone gets blocked. You give and accept feedback professionally and don’t let ego get in the way of delivering the best solution for the customer. You can summarize technical concepts effectively as you work with people from disciplines outside of engineering.

You love shipping to customers. Nothing we build matters if it isn’t meeting customers’ needs. You’ll also learn to empathize with Havoc Shield’s end users and add capabilities to the Platform that enable Havoc Shield to offer new products. 

You love learning. Engineering is an ever-evolving world. You enjoy exploring areas that you might not have experience with yet. You have a balanced approach to adopting new tech vs using well-understood patterns.


Things You Might Do

  • Participate in product planning and testing; develop mostly backend software across infrastructure

  • Own several infrastructure component areas and supports all others

  • Operate and scale the systems you and your team build.

  • Dig into bugs and feature requests 

  • Work and collaborate with colleagues to help them deliver value to customers in new and exciting ways


More about Havoc Shield:

Pay Transparency

Havoc Shield strives to create transparency in compensation across our team in the pursuit of ensuring pay equality and trust. We’re working on published pay bands for each role that will be available to all team members. We expect those pay bands to be published within Q4 2022. In the meantime, we highlight to employees that it is their right to discuss their compensation with others and always welcome conversations about the topic. We re-evaluate pay bands on an at least annual basis and perform individual compensation reviews bi-annually.

Equity

We’re a growth-stage startup, and one that prizes the careful use of funds to protect our team members. We know we can’t pay the same as a large tech company can, but we do reward employees who want to truly own what they’re working on with significant equity. All full time team members receive equity options. These options are tied to what we can pay in cash and where the market is in terms of total compensation above that. We fill the gap with equity options valued at our last fundraising round’s post-money valuation, of which value we strive to grow year over year. We regularly evaluate our equity option plan to introduce mechanisms and offerings to make understanding, exercising, and benefiting from your options. We know equity is a bet on the company, and so we’re doing everything we can to make sure that bet pays off. Ask us for more details - we’ll be happy to talk about them.
