Now Hiring: Software Development Manager

Our Company

DeepSurface is changing how companies address risk in their cybersecurity systems by empowering our customers to be radically better at protecting their organizations. We’re a fast-growing, software development company headquartered in Portland, OR.

We’re a team of self-starters with deep expertise. We value pragmatic solutions and being good to each other. We move fast, but with discipline, and rely on team members to listen, think, and then build the best products for our customers. If you love working in collaborative teams, take a high degree of initiative, and have a history of extreme ownership, then we’d love to meet you.

DeepSurface Security has great benefits, a very flexible work environment, and a commitment to hiring diversely.  Our benefits include a generous holiday policy, unlimited PTO, company paid health, dental and life insurance, and a 401(k) plan.  All roles are currently remote, but we plan to go back into our Portland offices part-time after COVID.

Our DeepSurface product provides information security professionals with a clear view of the threats that exist in their networks, systems, and applications.  Our approach revolutionizes vulnerability management and threat modeling by providing visibility, priority, and metrics where none exist.

The Position

We are currently looking for a Software Development Manager to lead our engineering team, which comprises development, DevOps and QA.  The position requires several years of experience in professional software development, with some of that time spent in a leadership role.  Are you a builder and a problem solver?  You just might be the fit we’re looking for.

The ideal candidate will have 6+ years of experience in software development, and at least 3 years in a software development leadership position.  Exemplary communication skills are a necessity.  A background in Linux development and/or cybersecurity/infosec would be beneficial.  Additionally, this candidate would thrive in a collaborative environment with team players, be comfortable taking initiative to produce results, collaborate effectively with a talented team, and have the ability to suggest and carry out practical actions to deal with issues.

We develop both on-prem and SaaS solutions; we expect you to have experience with both.  A working understanding of software and security landscapes in both Linux and Windows will be incredibly helpful.
