What we do at detectify

Detectify was born from the simple idea that the internet is broken. Our founders are among the best ethical hackers in the world - having hacked tech giants such as Google, Facebook, or Dropbox - and aim to share their findings with the rest of the world in order to make the internet a safer place.  

Built on ethical hacker knowledge, Detectify offers a web application security scanner that automates hacker attacks to help businesses stay safe. We collaborate with over 200 handpicked white-hat hackers to continually help clients like Smartbear, Episerver, Trello, and Spotify make their websites more secure.

US Expansion

We opened our first office outside of Sweden about a year ago and we decided that Boston is the perfect location. Being part of the US team means building a startup within a startup and taking the lead as one of the first members of the Detectify family abroad.

What you’ll get to do

As a Sales Engineer, you will join our Sales team and jump straight into guiding clients on how to improve their web security. Our sales team continuously initiates new dialogues with great companies to help them understand how they can use Detectify to improve their organisation’s security. 

You will:

  • Analyse clients’ technical and organisational needs and guide them into a modern way of working with security. 
  • Solve issues relating to clients’ technical set-up and communicating suggestions to different stakeholders. 

You will have a great opportunity to decide upon your own schedule, set learning frameworks, and constantly evolve the role and its possibilities.

This is not a support position. You would be an extension of our sales representatives by helping clients with your technical knowledge and collecting feedback for our product roadmap. 

Who you are

You have a background in the software industry and a strong interest in tech. You understand technical frameworks and are able to openly speak to their functions in relation to the product. We think you have gained your technical knowledge from past experience from working in similar sales engineering/specialist roles for 1-3 years. Past experience within programming is viewed favourably!

You are also able to juggle multiple dialogues simultaneously and can adapt on the fly to prioritise important tasks.

You are committed, driven, independent and can easily communicate your ideas through presentations, demos and whiteboard sessions. You are a creative person with the ability to manage many things at once and also have excellent communication skills, written and spoken. Additional languages are appreciated.

So, what do you think?

We are proud to foster an inclusive workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better product. This is something we value deeply and we encourage everyone to be a part of changing the way the world thinks about security!
