Back-End Engineer


TruSTAR is an intelligence platform built for security and fraud teams and we have a unique career opportunity for talented engineers like you. At TruSTAR, our mission is to make a hard task simple: help our customers resolve cybersecurity threats. We’ve built an industry-leading intelligence management platform that centralizes and enriches intelligence starting from within.

Working on the engineering team at TruSTAR is a unique mix of working at a fast-moving early-stage startup and an enterprise security company. The enterprise market has historically been saturated with monolithic, poorly designed software solutions that rarely change. At TruSTAR we take the opposite approach—we move fast, iterate quickly, and use cutting-edge technology. If you're interested in learning more about the Engineering team, you can check out our Hired profile.
