Security Roots Ltd

Product Designer

  • Contract: Full-time

Job Description

First things first, please have a read at The Unnecessary Fragmentation of Design Jobs and keep going if it resonates with you, we might be into something!

Product designers at Security Roots are always working on different things. You may be working on polishing up an existing feature, pitching and designing something brand new, or fundamentally rethinking how we do something.

What we offer and what we are looking for:

You'll be a trusted and key member of our team, and this is (some of) what you'll end up doing on a day-to-day basis:

  • You must write well-structured HTML/CSS. Basic Javascript or Rails skills are a plus, but not required.
  • You will design and craft, implement and contribute your changes working closely with the rest of our great team.
  • We are a small team that creates a product that's used by 1,000s of IT Security professionals around the world every day. Your impact will be felt. You'll help us improve our product, and in doing so, will be making the lifes of all of our users better.
  • You'll have a chance to rethink our basic assumptions and of exploring new concepts. Your creativity, input and direction is welcomed and appreciated.
  • You'll become an expert in how IT Security (i.e. ethical hacking) teams work and how our product can help them (btw, if you know where the "Dradis" name comes from, this may just be the perfect job for you!).
  • This is a full-time position for the right candidate and it has an immediate start date. Work 100% remotely.

Skill Requirements

  • Ideally you've held a remote position before, or you've held a similar product designer role in a traditional organisation but now are looking to improve your work-life balance.

  • Comfortable communicating with others verbally and in writing. You're a doer, not a dreamer and are very results oriented.

  • You don't think of yourself as a "UI Designer", or a "Web Designer" or a "Front End person". You're just a well rounded individual that can bring it together. Someone that loves Getting Real.

  • You are organized, like to be on top of your responsibilities and don't let things slip through the cracks. You will be sure to include a quote from your favourite movie as part of your application.

About the Company

In short, Security Roots helps make the Internet safer. We work with IT security professionals and ethical hackers to help them find security holes and vulnerabilities in systems before the bad guys do.

There is a lot of creativity and innovation involved in findings those holes. Unfortunately, it’s not all fun and games, in order for their “findings” to be useful, they need to document their results, track progress, notify stakeholders, review mitigations implemented, verify, re-test, etc. There is a lot of overhead involved in the process.

Surprising no one, IT Security experts like the fun and games but don’t like the overhead/ back-office stuff. That’s where we come in, we exist to make the life of IT Security professionals easier, better, more enjoyable by making all of these overhead tasks easier and more painless.

We've been in business for 5 years, completely self-funded and profitable. Today, we serve over 440 Infosecurity teams across 37 different countries.
