Android Engineer: App Analysis

At Data Theorem, we’re building a next-gen SaaS platform for preventing data breaches. We’re passionate about helping organizations operate in the cloud securely and ensure that their data and their customers' data is safe at all times.

The company was founded in 2013 and is headquartered in Palo Alto, California, with a growing team that’s distributed between the US and Europe. We are searching for exceptional talent pursuing an opportunity to grow and take ownership of the projects that resonate most with them.

As an Android engineer, you will be responsible for improving our automated platform for analyzing Android applications at scale, and help Data Theorem’s customers build better, more secure, and more private applications.

You will:

  • Work with the mobile team on a set of tools we've built to statically analyze APKs in order to find security or privacy issues.

  • Improve our dynamic analyzer, which instruments Android applications in order to study their behavior while running on a device, and detect dangerous actions that could lead to security problems.

  • Collaborate with the security research team to build new security checks to be added to our scanning platform, so we can help customers build more secure Android apps.

  • Be an active member of the Data Theorem's engineering team, which is spread across the United States, England and France.

  • Be amazed at your opportunity for growth within a top cybersecurity startup.

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Significant experience implementing Android applications and tools.

  • A good understanding of the Android runtime, or a strong interest in becoming more familiar with the runtime.

  • Bonus points: some experience writing tools in Python.

  • Bonus points: some experience with taking apart Android software in order to understand and/or modify it. This includes experience with tools such as Xposed, Frida, apktool, androguard, etc.

  • No information security experience required - we are more interested in software engineering backgrounds.
