About Commure

Commure is building a system to accelerate healthcare software innovation.

Job Description

Medicine and our understanding of human health has experienced dramatic advances in the last 20 years. At the same time, health software innovation has been held back. At Commure, we are building a technology platform based on open standards that is transforming how innovators build modern health software to improve the quality of care and its efficiency of delivery.
We are seeking talented Security Engineers to join our growing Security team. This position will provide expertise in the analysis, assessment and development of code and infrastructure to ensure secure applications, systems and networks. If you enjoy analyzing system services, networks and applications from a security perspective, and you are skilled at discovering security issues that appear under new threat scenarios, this position will provide you with a challenging opportunity.  
At Commure, engineers work side by side with physicians within our company as well as our healthcare partners to design, implement, and maintain solutions that meet the concrete needs of providers. We are a welcoming and diverse team with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. We pride ourselves on building robust, high-quality software based on open standards using a modern tech stack that includes Rust, TypeScript, and Kubernetes. If you share our commitment to improving healthcare innovation and value close partnerships between developers and doctors, come work with us!

As a Security Engineer at Commure, you will:

    • Translate security and technical requirements into business requirements and communicate security risks to different audiences and stakeholders
    • Stay current on emerging security threats, vulnerabilities and controls
    • Provide security architecture and systems engineering expertise to applications, operations and other business teams
    • Evaluate new technologies against established requirements and validate the security of the technology through risk assessments
    • Work to ensure we build and ship secure, enterprise-grade software
    • Ensure vulnerabilities are identified and managed across the enterprise
    • Consult on a variety of projects, including both design and code reviews
    • Work with full-stack engineers to triage and resolve findings from penetration tests, internal audits, and external bug reports
    • Participate in incident handling
    • Identify and implement new security technologies and best practices into Commure’s offerings
    • Evangelize security best practices across the company
    • Work with cutting-edge technologies such as Rust, TypeScript, React, and Kubernetes
    • Join our collaborative Engineering, Product, and Design team and provide a valued voice as we scale our team and culture

You might be right for this role if you:

    • Are inspired by our mission to improve health software and reduce burnout among providers
    • Can apply security first principles to solve complex technical challenges
    • Possess deep domain knowledge in web application security and/or cloud infrastructure security. Experience securing Kubernetes environments is a plus!
    • Able to demonstrate clear understanding of threats to cloud native environments
    • Security certifications desirable
    • Exhibit grit, high integrity, a team mindset, and an affinity for continuous learning
    • Enjoy wrangling real-world complexity into deceivingly simple solutions
    • Demonstrated an ability to take the initiative and accountability for achieving results
    • Thrive in a collaborative, diverse environment
    • Have 3+ years of experience
    • This role can be based out of San Francisco, CA or Cambridge, MA
