only will you be asked to code in your role but you’ll also be
responsible for compliance, application security, and training for our
growing engineering team.  From setting security policy, to helping
detect XSS exploits, this position will cover a wide range of
responsibilities.  You’ll help us ensure that user PII is safe, that

the night, there’s a system in place to stop them.
