About the role


We're looking for a Head of Threat Intelligence with experience pentesting LLM applications, evaluating LLM applications for security vulnerabilities, and writing technical content. You'll be working with us and advancing the field of LLM threat research.

You'll be part of the founding team and define the trajectory of the company.


We're all technical, and love shipping fast. You'll have the independence and autonomy to design and own the threat intelligence function end-to-end. We have customers and are generating revenue, so you'll also have the option to flex into a wide range of problems, if you are interested in it! We only care about customers, product, and our team -- everything else is noise.


  • Conduct LLM Pentests
  • Publish technical content regarding LLM Security
  • Understand the latest in the LLM compliance landscape
  • Act as a liaison to other organizations/researchers working in the LLM security space

About you

  • High agency
  • Interest and experience in LLM pentesting
  • Pentesting experience
  • Ability to convey technical concepts in an understandable way to all audiences
  • Great communication skills

Bonus points (not required)

  • Has worked at high-growth startups before
