Given our exceptional growth, we are expanding and hiring a Senior Software Engineer to join us on this exciting journey. Do you fancy yourself a polyglot but have a passion for modern languages such as Go and Terraform? Are self-motivation and dedication two attributes that shine brightly in you as a professional? At Bishop Fox, you will work with a team of brilliant technologists to develop the most innovative offensive SaaS (Software as a Service) platform on the market. Flexibility will be an asset to you in this role, as will some amount of creativity since you will need to think on your feet quite often. Each day will bring new challenges and unfamiliar problems for you to solve. Most importantly, you will look at what we are doing and fill in the gaps where we might be missing a crucial thing or two. Furthermore, you are more than capable of knocking out things quickly as well – and not sacrificing quality in the process.
