  • Strong understanding of open-source software development and packaged software.

  • Familiarity with git and other version control software.

  • Be able to provide two technical writing samples with your application. One sample must address software and code. If possible, a writing sample addressing software security and vulnerabilities should also be provided.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience in the field of information security, system administration, or open-source software maintenance.

  • Proficiency in one or more modern programming languages and their associated packaging ecosystems, such as JavaScript/npm, Java/Maven, Python/PyPI.

  • Familiarity with vulnerability analysis, vulnerability trends, and using common vulnerability metrics (CVSS, CWE).

  • Familiarity with evaluating the risk, impact, and severity of a vulnerability.

  • Experience performing code reviews.

  • Previous experience using open-source software and a strong interest in open-source security.
