Developer Advocate at StackHawk

DevRelX Jobs


We are hiring a developer advocate who will help evangelize the message of developer-centric application security testing throughout developer communities.

Application security is shifting left, with software engineering teams taking ownership over the security of their applications. StackHawk is an application security testing company built for software developers and automation in CI/CD. We are hiring a developer advocate who will help evangelize the message of developer-centric application security testing throughout developer communities.
You will engage with developer communities in a variety of ways, including online discussion, content creation, and speaking at events. You should be comfortable flexing between the high level reasons why and the nitty gritty technical details of how it all works.

This is a rare opportunity to be the public face of a fast growing developer tool that is shifting how engineering teams are delivering secure applications.

Engage in Community Discussion. Be a part of the conversation where it is happening, and help create conversation in relevant communities. Twitter, online forums, Slack channels, and more. Get out there to join and create conversation.
Speak at Events. Become part of the speaker circuit for developer, DevOps, and security events. Build compelling talks and deliver them at events around the world.
Build Content. Build blogs, videos, webinars, docs, sample applications, and more. Share why application security is shifting left and how to make it happen. These should vary from high level to technical details.
Share Learnings into StackHawk. Bring your learnings from the community back into StackHawk to help shape where the product and company are headed.
