      • Substantial experience in software engineering, DevOps, or application security roles
      • Strong understanding of application security assessment techniques (e.g., SAST, DAST, penetration testing, etc.) and steps to remediate findings
      • Knowledge of secure development practices for web and mobile applications (e.g., OWASP Top 10, MAS)
      • Familiarity with auto-scaling cloud microservices and associated technologies (e.g., containerization, Kubernetes, infrastructure as code, etc.)
      • Experience with implementing security scanning in CI/CD pipelines with orchestration tools (e.g., GitHub Actions, Jenkins, GitLab, etc.) is a plus
      • Experience with web and mobile application development is a plus
      • Excellent organizational, interpersonal communication, cross-functional collaboration, and leadership skills
      • High attention to detail Please consider applying even if you don't meet 100% of the qualifications. Research shows you can still be considered for a position if you meet some of the requirements. At MyFitnessPal, we're building a fitness product for everyone and believe our team should reflect that.
