Join Our Team


The Product Security team collaborates with all GoDaddy product teams to drive secure product design and standard methodologies for all GoDaddy applications by providing threat modeling and security architecture reviews. The team writes standards, specifications, and guidelines for securing applications and builds next generation security tooling to provide security event visibility across our products and platforms.


We’re looking for a passionate application security developer who loves to dive into technology and pull it all apart to see how it works, then put it back together again better than it was before. We treasure curiosity, communication, passion for security, a bias towards collaboration and action and the desire to embrace and extend standard methodologies and patterns. You can develop novel new software libraries, features and entire services or applications from scratch with little direction and can design and socialize important software updates across the team and organization. If you’re the kind of person who can’t see something that isn’t right without a compulsion to make it at least just a little bit better before you put it back, we want to talk to you!



You’ll work in our Kirkland, Tempe, or Scottsdale office. However, we may be open to this role being fully remote.
