New Context is a rapidly growing consulting company in the heart of downtown San Francisco. We specialize in Lean Security: an approach that leads organizations to build better, safer software through hands-on technical and management consulting. We are a group of engineers who live and breathe Agile Infrastructure, Systems Automation, Cloud Orchestration, and Information & Application Security.
Our team members are expected to be able to work with customers as a trusted adviser for all aspects of security, but especially in translating customer security assessment requirements to plain language that can guide their teams through meeting those requirements. We're looking for security generalists with application security expertise, as well as development skills - people who can think in security, communicate that thinking to our clients in plain English, and who are also comfortable in an active Agile software development role.
You will work with our clients and other New Context team members while working from your home or New Context office, and occasionally client sites. We foster a tight-knit, highly-supportive environment where you will receive respect and be included. Even if you may not know the answer to a question immediately, you'll have the entire company supporting you via Slack, Zoom, or in-person. We also host a daily, all-company stand-up via Zoom, and a weekly company Retro, so you won't just be a name on an email.
At New Context, our core values are Humility, Integrity, Quality & Passion! Our employees live these values every single day.
