Series A

We're a small San Francisco startup passionate about analyzing code and measuring its security. We provide tools to developers, hackers, and researchers that simplify program analysis and make it possible to analyze entire software ecosystems quickly (e.g. every publicly available JavaScript project on GitHub). Security issues are an open source public health problem; with your help we can vaccinate the community against entire classes of exploits.


Why join us?
  • Raised a Series A from Sequoia and Redpoint

  • Our team has previously worked on security and developer tools at places like Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Palantir, and MIT Lincoln Labs

  • We're building a product that is aimed at developers as first users and will push security best practices across open source projects in a highly visible way


Engineering at R2C
Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team operates on 1-2 week cycles. Each cycle begins with a meeting to discuss time estimates for features, and ends with a demo meeting where each engineer can show off the work they've completed. Engineers typically work with a designer and any the founders to spec a feature, then work on the feature individually or in pairs. We use pull requests on GitHub to conduct code reviews. All engineers are also empowered to push code to production, which we do multiple times a day.

Technical Challenges

We're building a system to download, scan, comment, and make pull requests for millions of repos on Github. We have to do this in an efficient manner and also support incremental computations when new code is pushed to one of the repositories we're watching via a webhook.

Projects you might work on
  • Build a highly-parallel, dockerized analysis engine to run hundreds of security unit tests over 1M+ git repos.

  • Building complex, custom visual charts in d3 to highlight how the quality of the project has changed over time. This would be built in a react + typescript web app.

Tech stack

Python

Working at R2C

We value scrappy engineers who know how to get things done. We love it when you have an idea for a feature, and hack away to get an MVP working quickly.
