Wanted: Senior Software Engineer (Back-End) [Manila]

Title: Senior Software Engineer / Lead

Location: Manila

Languages: English


Who we are

GlobalSign was formed in 1996 as one of the Internet’s original trust service providers (you probably know us as a Certificate Authority). Over the years we have issued millions of digital certificates that have been used to secure commerce and communication on the Internet. Our solutions take the pain out of using cryptography and help organizations solve complex problems with increased productivity and peace of mind.


What we’re going to do

The web has changed a lot since 1996 but how we bootstrap trust on it has not changed much – we are going to fix that.


Who we’re looking for

We are building a small engineering team here in the Seattle area and another in Manila and need senior developers who are passionate about security and building technology for the modern web.

In this role you’ll write high-performance web services, core security subsystems, key management solutions, architect new solutions that make certificate and key management a breeze and interact with the open source community.

Most importantly, you’ll be a leader – writing groundbreaking code that continually changes and influences the industry.

  • Experience designing highly interactive web applications with performance, scalability, usability, and security in mind.
  • Experience developing software on Unix/Linux.
  • Love your version control (Git preferably).
  • Understanding of security risks and secure software development.
