At Ocrolus, we believe companies work best when they focus on their core business and let automation do the rest. We’re powering the digital lending ecosystem and help financial services firms make high-quality decisions with trusted data and unparalleled efficiency.

Ocrolus’ Human-in-the-Loop document automation software analyzes documents with over 99% accuracy. We're replacing legacy OCR vendors that cap out at 75-80% accuracy, and augmenting the robotic work that humans are prone to doing all too often – which can be expensive, error-prone, and slow. By empowering lenders to analyze diverse sources of financial data more efficiently, Ocrolus levels the playing field for every borrower, providing expanded access to credit at a lower cost.

We’ve raised over $100 million from blue-chip investors and are working with customers like PayPal, Brex, SoFi, Blend and Plaid. Join us as we build the future of fintech, and make an impact at an award-winning, high-growth startup that Forbes recently dubbed the “Next Billion-Dollar Startup”.

We are looking for diverse security practitioners to help us design, build, and scale product security at Ocrolus. We value critical thinking, creativity, data-driven and intelligence-driven approaches, and offensive experience. We believe security is a collaborative process, where security is a partner to help achieve business goals securely. We believe in saying “yes and;” instead of “no” when recommending security objectives. We don’t believe in using fear or penalty for the enforcement of security policies and processes, and we will always provide evidence and justification for security controls.

  • 5+ years of experience working in product/application security roles.

  • Experience in designing and building a wide variety of technical security controls.
  • Experience in performing threat modeling, design reviews, code reviews, web application security testing, and enterprise cloud penetration testing.

  • The ability to automate product security processes and optimize productivity with SAST & DAST tools.
