A word from the hiring managers
My vision of the Security Engineering team is to focus on automation and partnership with our Product teams that allow us to enable our developers to self service security as we continue to scale. My goal is to continue to build a team of engineers from a variety of different backgrounds and perspectives that are able to support any kind of project that comes our way from breaking out the monolith into microservices, re-architecting our permissioning model to designing self-service security controls for our customers.
If you are looking for an opportunity to continue to build your technical chops and have direct influence over the direction of our security program as well the direction of our product then this would be a great fit.
Head of Security Engineering
My goal at Benchling is to build a Security Operations team that automates away those time consuming tasks and focuses their time on challenging detection/engineering problems. To achieve this goal I am looking for engineers who are eager to lean on their varied perspectives and experience to influence the Security Operations program.
If you’re passionate about building scalable solutions whether that is architecting logging pipelines, deploying detections for our customers, or automating response actions this might be the right opportunity for you.

Find out why talented people are joining Benchling
I joined Benchling because I felt I would not be side-lined or ignored. My tendency to be pragmatic about security matched closely with how the company already worked. In terms of career growth, I saw an opportunity to gain experience leading, creating, and maturing practical security policies and processes.
I was part of two other startups in my career. Benchling is in way better shape than either of those. Everyone is eager and excited to do the right thing and have a conversation about it. This isn’t your regular silicon-valley tech startup: it has real purpose and real customers!
Being Genderqueer, finding an empathetic place of work is incredibly important. The fact that LGBTQ+, Women, and BIPoC can openly organize, and have conversations with the rest of the company, was a major positive signal. Everyone is great about my they/them pronouns, which is one less thing to worry about.
