Insights – Engineering & Culture @ Secure Code Warrior

Who is Secure Code Warrior?

As a hyper-growth cybersecurity company, we’re driven by our purpose of making the world’s coders more secure.

With our online platform, we train and equip software developers to be the first line of defence for their organisations, empowering them to think and act with a security mindset every day. They want to ship secure code with confidence, and we give them the skills, knowledge, and tools to do it!

 

What are the exciting developments and challenges that are driving us?  

We’re a company born from forward-thinking, and with more organisations and people becoming increasingly reliant on technology, we’re ramping up to support our large-scale growth plans. Our team is primed to continue to disrupt the software security space, underpinned by a collaborative focus on solving the root cause of the software security problem; empowering developers to write secure code from the start.

What are our key markets for growth?

With even the most traditional of industries and companies undergoing digital transformation and therefore the need to be more secure, the possibilities for us are endless. Cybersecurity is a growing focus for many organisations, and we continue to experience steady growth globally across industries including technology, banking, finance, insurance, automotive, retail, e-commerce, and telecommunications.

 

In which areas are we expanding our team?

With a recently secured US $45 million in Series B funding and fuelled by a successful product utilised by 18 of the top 100 global banks, 1 of the top 3 telecom providers, 2 of the top 5 credit card processors and 8 of 10 Australian banks, we’re now looking for the Marios to our Luigis, the pepper to our salt, and the Chewbaccas to our Han Solos to join our global team of Warriors. 

We’re focused on growing our engineering and product teams based in Bruges (Belgium), and Sydney, and also hiring across Customer Success, Marketing and Sales in Singapore, USA, UK, and Australia.

How is our culture unique compared to the myriad of scaling tech companies Sydney has to offer?

We may be scaling at lightning speed but we’re laser-focused on creating an environment that allows individuals to carve their own path supported by a dynamic team. Our autonomous teams and strong remote workforce are trusted and given the freedom to learn, experiment, do great work, and ultimately leave a mark on our industry.  

Across all of our teams there’s vast scope to tackle a multitude of challenges and projects, and as an organisation that’s seamlessly transitioned from start-up to scale-up, we’ve ensured we have a strong framework to sustain success.  

From the outset our leaders have invested heavily in People and Culture which sees our values of diversity, individual thought-leadership, respect, tenacity, courage, and collaboration reflected company-wide. We boast some of the best tech talent in the world and empower those with big ideas the opportunity and support to bring them to life. 

“We are on our way to becoming a leader in DevSec bridging the traditional gaps between IT and security while ensuring fast, safe delivery of code, and this is thanks to the inherent passion and drive of each and every Secure Code Warrior.”

 

What does the future look like?  

We’re on a mission to liberate the approximately 24 million developers around the world from spending time fixing common security bugs and more time writing great code. Led by our CEO, a globally recognised cybersecurity expert,  we’re doubling our staff size over the next five years and expanding our reach across more international markets including India and Singapore.
