About the role

Snapdocs is a rapidly growing company backed by investors like Sequoia, Y Combinator, F-Prime and Tiger Global. We're an innovative team taking on the extensive mortgage market, bringing scalable and sophisticated software to a pillar of the US economy that still relies on fax machines and manila envelopes.

We are now looking for a Staff Cybersecurity Engineer who will help us build, implement and architect our cybersecurity environment following NIST 800-53 and NIST 800-171 control frameworks. You will work closely with our Director and CISO designing, documenting and creating new security based solutions as well as mitigating cyber threats Snapdocs, customers and our partners face.  If you are looking for a high impact Cybersecurity position  for a pre IPO unicorn company then we have a position for you…

Reporting to the Director of Cybersecurity, your first priority will be to evaluate our current cybersecurity posture, provide recommendations and any remediation activities. You will work closely with our application and infrastructure teams to conduct proof of concepts and implement production-ready cybersecurity solutions. You will design, build and execute automation frameworks for deployments of cloud environments specifically AWS and help with Data Loss prevention (DLP) solutions. Assist in IT and security audits. Select, build and maintain a new SIEM solution for the company.

Our ideal candidate will have spent the past 5+ years in security architecture, design and implementation. You have a deep understanding of security principals including encryptions and authentication. You will have worked with securing corporate and public cloud (AWS) endpoints. You have experience with NIST 800-53 and NIST 800-171 control frameworks. This role will work across the business to provide guidance for the company's security posture so it will require a high level of professionalism and great communication skills. We are a fully remote team today so any experience working with distributed teams will be beneficial. Bonus points if you have any security certifications or have prior SaaS experience.. 

Colorado applicants: This role pays $150,000 - $175,000 annually plus equity in the company (pay for other locations may vary).



Snapdocs strongly values diversity and drive. We want to work with people of different backgrounds and different paths in life, and we trust our team to make smart decisions. This means we value independent work as well as collaboration. We provide outstanding benefits (listed below) and while we have hubs in both San Francisco and Denver, we're an extremely remote-friendly company with over a third of our staff outside of those two hubs!

Our benefits include (but are not limited to):

  • Excellent health, dental, and vision benefits
  • 401(k) with up to 4% company match
  • 16 weeks paid parental leave (regardless of gender)
  • Flexible time off policy
  • Flexible spending account for healthcare and dependent care
  • Galileo, Modern Health, Urban Sitter, and Northstar Financial memberships
  • Life and disability insurance
  • Commuter benefits
  • 10 year exercise window on your equity (!!)

Why you should join Snapdocs

Snapdocs powers homeownership. Using technology, we’re building the connective tissue for an entire pillar of the U.S. economy: residential real estate.

Today, we’re working to perfect mortgage closings, but that’s only the beginning. If we succeed, more than five million families per year will gain clarity and transparency as they make the biggest financial decision of their lives: buying a home. Before Snapdocs, no one felt responsible or empowered to solve the problems we face every day we come to the office.

It's complex and difficult work, and the result is not an app we brag about at tech industry parties. Instead, we're making a difference and carefully building a team that shares our priorities—pragmatism, respect and empathy for our clients, and building honest products that improve all our users’ lives.
