We are looking for an exceptional Full Stack Software Engineer to join our new growth team.
TryHackMe is an online platform that teaches cyber security through short, gamified real-world labs. We have content for both complete beginners and seasoned hackers, incorporation guides and challenges to cater for different learning styles.
TryHackMe was started in 2018 by two cyber security enthusiasts, Ashu Savani and Ben Spring, who met at a summer internship. When getting started in the field, they found learning security to be a fragmented, inaccessible and difficult experience; often being given a vulnerable machine's IP with no additional resources is not the most efficient way to learn, especially when you don't have any prior knowledge. When Ben returned back to University he created a way to deploy machines and sent it to Ashu, who suggested uploading all the notes they'd made over the summer onto a centralised platform for others to learn, for free.
To allow users to share their knowledge, TryHackMe allows other users (at no charge) to create a virtual room, which contains a combination of theoretical and practical learning components.. In early 2019, Jon Peters started creating rooms and suggested the platform build up a community, a task he took on and succeeded in.
The platform has never raised any capital and is entirely bootstrapped.
As a Software Engineer in the Growth Team, you will need to break down metrics gathered by the Product Manager and Data Analyst into stages of a funnel.
You will work within the Software Engineering department and specifically with the rest of the growth team using agile methodologies (Scrum). This role is fast-paced and varied and there is space for you to help define this with your own expertise.
Growth engineering, which is a technical field pioneered by Facebook about a decade ago, is a scientific approach to growth by producing custom growth solutions and doing metric-driven experiments instead of a gut-driven approach.
