About Brave

Brave is on a mission to protect the human right to privacy online. We’ve built a free web browser that blocks creepy ads and trackers by default, a private search engine with a truly independent index, a browser-native crypto wallet, and a private ad network (opt-in!) that directly rewards you for your attention. And we’re just getting started. Already 50 million people have switched to Brave for a faster, more private web. Millions more switch every month.


Brave is hiring a Web Application Security Engineer to help secure Brave’s business-critical web applications, including but not limited to Brave Search ( Your work will directly impact the future of a privacy-first search engine used by millions of people. This is a full-time role on our dedicated security team, although you will work closely with our fast-paced Search team. We welcome remote hires as long as you have some overlap with European time zones.


  • Ongoing security code reviews and security audits of Brave Search
  • Triaging and fixing security issues as needed
  • Participating in security & privacy feature-design and roadmap-planning as part of a cross-functional team


  • Proficiency in JavaScript and Python
  • Deep understanding of the web security model and web privacy threats
  • Extensive experience with securing cloud infrastructure, especially AWS
  • Frontend and backend web application development experience
  • Security auditing experience

Nice to haves

We don’t expect anyone to have all of these additional qualities, but having one or two will probably help you work successfully at Brave:

  • Experience or comfort working in public on an open source project on GitHub
  • Ability to write clear technical documentation & specifications
  • Familiarity with applied cryptography
  • API design experience
  • Passion for privacy, security, & anonymity

Working at Brave

  • Industry-leader in privacy, with a research and engineering team that’s innovating everyday to keep people safer online and beat Big Tech
  • Highly competitive salaries & benefits, and generous home-office stipends
  • Fully remote team (no office, no commute)
  • Welcoming, humble, ridiculously smart teammates, and a truly flat org structure
  • Opportunity to get in early at a hyper-growth company, and revolutionize the web
  • Oh, and did we mention Brendan, our CEO & co-founder, invented JavaScript?
