A word from the hiring manager

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.


A word from the hiring manager

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.

Take a look at why talented security professionals are joining Benchling.

"I joined Benchling primarily because I felt my security skills would be put to good use for an incredibly important cause and, most importantly, that I would not be side-lined or ignored. I felt that my tendency to be pragmatic about security matched closely with how the company already worked. In terms of career growth, I saw the opportunity inherent in being on a brand new security team: a way to gain the experience of leading, creating, and maturing practical security policies and processes."

"I was part of two other startups in my career. I think Benchling is in way better shape than either of those. Not just in the general business sense (wow that retention!), but also for who we get to work on security with: everyone is eager and excited to do the right thing and have a conversation about it. Unlike in a public or mature private company, we can move fast and make as many changes as necessary to be great at security. Plus, this isn’t you’re regular silicon-valley tech startup: it has real purpose and real customers."

"Since I’m openly Genderqueer, being able to find a place of work with empathy and belonging is incredibly important. The fact that LGBTQ+, Women, and BIPoC can openly organize, and invite the rest of the company in for conversation, was a major positive signal and heavily influenced my choice to join Benchling. Everyone is generally great about my they/them pronouns, which is one less distraction I have to worry about while I’m focused on security."
