Contrast Security is the world’s leading provider of security technology that enables software applications to protect themselves against cyber-attacks. Contrast's patented deep security instrumentation is the breakthrough technology that enables highly accurate analysis and always-on protection of an entire application portfolio, without disruptive scanning or expensive security experts. Only Contrast has intelligent agents that work actively inside applications to prevent data breaches, defeat hackers and secure the entire enterprise from development, to operations, to production.
We've been working with GoLang for a little over two years now. Most of our work thus far has been building our communication layer for dynamic agents to talk with our TeamServer. In the last year, we've spent a lot of time prototyping instrumentation within Go. Now's the time to build our first IAST and RASP agent, dedicated to the GoLang community.
Writing instrumentation agents is a responsibility we take very seriously at Contrast. Our customers trust us enough to run our agents directly in their applications. We're looking for an engineer to exercise that power carefully, to help us build a quality, thoroughly tested agent that our customers run with complete confidence. Go presents a more unique situation in which our customers will have to include our agent within their compile process.
An ideal candidate has a passion and excitement around the GoLang community. They likely have professional C experience, including some experience contributing to open source frameworks and/or libraries, this could be a great opportunity for you to deepen your understanding of GoLang's unique characteristics. You like to reverse engineer code, making it better with each iteration.
