Job Description

Grammarly offers a remote-first hybrid working model. Team members can work primarily remotely. Teams will meet in person every quarter in one of Grammarly’s hubs, currently in San Francisco, Vancouver, New York, and Kyiv.

Grammarly empowers people to thrive and connect, whenever and wherever they communicate. More than 30 million people and 30,000 teams around the world use our AI-powered writing assistant every day. All of this begins with our team collaborating in a values-driven and learning-oriented environment. 

To achieve our ambitious goals, we’re looking for a Software Engineer in Security Tooling and Automation to join our Product Security team. This role will have a substantial impact on the security of the Grammarly product family and the cloud infrastructure behind it.
