Cedar has built a category defining platform that combines data science and machine learning to connect patients with healthcare providers in a way that helps solve the critical challenges of patient billing and payment. Our technologies improve the overall experience of patient billing and engagement, enabling patients to help manage the cost and payment of their care while ensuring providers can thrive in a rapidly changing environment. Patients, providers, and payors put their trust in Cedar's platform, making security and availability an integral part of what we do.

As an Application Security Engineer, you will help expand the application security program, working across the whole product lifecycle: from input on architecture through the release process as well as ongoing assessment, triage and remediation of application vulnerabilities. As a fast-growing startup, security cannot be reactive, and so you will partner closely with our engineering teams and be hands-on with our codebase: helping teams design and implement services that are secure by default, building tools and automation where necessary so that releasing secure software is the easy and obvious path for the rest of our maker community. 

Security is not a field with a clear career path – so even if these qualifications and levels don't fit your security background perfectly, we'd still encourage you to apply.

  • Support and execute assessment activities, and collaborate cross-functionally to resolve vulnerabilities (and kill bug classes)

  • Develop security primitives that provide guardrails for our engineers

  • Proficient in a few general purpose programming languages (ideally Python & Javascript)
