About the role

At komoot we believe that security is an enabler for building a great B2C product. Our users trust us to store their sensitive information securely – anything from location data to photos of their family. In the role of (offensive) security engineer, you’ll join our small but growing security team, getting the opportunity to help us pioneer excellent security practices at komoot. Your challenge will be to find vulnerabilities in our AWS infrastructure, java/javascript applications and mobile apps, and fix them in priority order, in collaboration with komoot’s development teams.

Ready for your next adventure?

What you will do

  • Develop emergency plans and exercises for security incidents
  • Lead internal penetration testing and triage external bug bounty submissions
  • Prioritise vulnerabilities by impact and probability, and mitigate them
  • Identify and implement measures for early attack detection
  • Continuously harden our CI/CD process and cloud infrastructure
  • Plan and implement spam & fraud countermeasures
  • Think like an attacker to remain one step ahead at all times
  • Confidently communicate security vulnerabilities, and their severity with product owners

Why you will love it

  • You’ll work with a truly inspiring product that brings real-life value to our users and empowers them to explore more of the great outdoors.
  • We strive for honest security and enable our colleagues to do their best work.
  • We strive for a modern tech stack to stay productive and face scaling challenges.
  • We are a tech company with little organisational overhead, focusing on ownership and responsibility instead of micro-management and hierarchies.
  • This is a remote role – you’re free to work from anywhere that lies between the time zones UTC-1 and UTC+3. Beach? The mountains? Or a co-working space (covered by us)?
  • You’ll become part of a diverse, international team and you’ll travel with us (when safe) for team gatherings in amazing locations several times a year. Check out this playlist ( to find out more about how we stay close while being remote.


You will be successful in this position if you

  • Are highly self-driven, responsible and keen to learn and improve.
  • Have 3+ years of professional experience in security engineering, penetration testing and/or red/blue teaming.
  • Have experience with offensive security.
  • Have experience with the security offerings of AWS. Google Cloud is a plus.
  • See yourself and security in general as an enabler and not as a blocker.
  • Have been responsible for security of a B2C product (web or mobile).
  • Are a great communicator in a diverse team.
  • Can find and mitigate vulnerabilities in Java, Python and Javascript code. You are fluent in one of these languages.
