Only Contrast has sensors that work actively inside applications to uncover vulnerabilities, prevent data breaches, and secure the entire enterprise from development to operations to production.

About the Position
Contrast is looking for a senior application developer to join our growing engineering team (remote position in Germany).

Our development stack includes a wide range of technologies, including Java, React, Node, Python, and all things AWS. While the role has visibility and influence across several core technologies within the platform, this person will focus on an auto-scaling cloud infrastructure component, capturing security data and passing it to the dashboard for display and action by our customers. Knowledge of Kubernetes and container management is essential.

Working at Contrast means pursuing a life-changing experience in application security and continuous delivery. We are an exciting, young team - growing leaps and bounds each month.  We write a lot of GraphQL to interact with our REST layer to improve performance and data interaction. You would get the opportunity to work on challenging and leading-edge areas of the product. We write, test and deploy our code continuously - true DevOps. We spread knowledge, help mentor younger engineers and reduce operational risk through Pull Requests - you’ll do the same and quickly learn about the code in your product area.

Our engineering team has a strong spirit of entrepreneurship. Every member has joined because they want to be part of a high-performing team and go through the scale-up experience. We look for candidates with similar goals and beliefs about the work and the team they want to be a part of.


    • A passion for technology and a high level of personal accountability and ownership for your work
    • A “self-starter” attitude to make progress in ambiguous situations on schedule
    • Willingness to work within the engineering team - with design, product, and support colleagues to build and support new features.
    • Own your work. Whether a nasty bug or an awesome feature, you put your name on every line of code
    • A solid analytical ability to deal with ambiguity and solve problems independently
    • You’re a great communicator - whether talking to fellow engineers about the inner workings of instrumenting the JVM or a customer about the latest product features
    • Someone who gives back to the Open Source Community whenever possible
    • Ready to deploy: our engineers work in a fully DevOps environment - we deploy multiple times daily to our AWS infrastructure


    • Must have strong communication skills ability to ask questions and let others know when you need help
    • Must be a problem solver with a strong belief that the best work results from finding the simplest solution to complex challenges
    • A high level of pride in the work you produce - your code is clean, your designs are elegant, and you are constantly refactoring
    • An open mindset to teach and learn - every day is a school day in Contrast. There are new colleagues to mentor and new technologies, frameworks, and ways of approaching problems to be considered
    • Advanced Knowledge of AWS Features and Services

    • We are focused on building a diverse and inclusive workforce. We encourage you to apply if you’re excited about this role but do not meet 100% of the qualifications listed above.

What We Offer

    • Competitive compensation package (salary + equity)
    • A fun and dynamic environment where you work with other like minded people on products which make a real difference to the security of our customers
    • Healthcare packages
