About the team:

Flashpoint Compromised Credentials Monitoring (CCM) allows users to monitor exposure of compromised credentials for their enterprise domains and customer email addresses to take action after breaches to mitigate risk of account takeover (ATO). Flashpoint’s advanced technology quickly collects and processes data and credentials, allowing for organizations to access the most up-to-date breach data and receive notification as soon as credentials have been identified.

Our best engineers are collaborative and selfless. They enjoy writing code but they prioritize mentoring and supporting others. They leave code cleaner than when they found it but don’t insist on particular patterns. They optimize for simplicity and readability. They are involved in the full lifecycle of software development: understanding the requirements, designing the solution, writing the code, testing the code, testing the integration, deploying it to production, and monitoring the deployment. They are fully engaged in the problem domain.

  • Improve our tooling for monitoring the health and efficiency of our systems
