Job Description

At Merge, we revolutionize the way B2B companies integrate. Unfamiliar with the integration problem? The average company expects to spend hundreds of hours a year integrating with dozens or more vendors. Alignment between sales, partnerships, product management, design, engineering, and customer success (a lot, right?) is absolutely critical — and a major headache. Integrations are a to-do that goes on and on.

Our Unified API empowers developers to offer integrations with hundreds of platforms instantly. Now we’re hiring for you: an ambitious leader ready to help build, design, and support enterprise-grade software scaled to millions of users.

Merge is poised to power all B2B integrations, and in doing so, are powering data movement for some of the most secure companies in the world. Working with these powerhouses requires us to follow industry leading security practices and constantly protect ourselves.

As the Head of Security at Merge, you will manage our security programs, including infrastructure, compliance, and security automation. While you don’t need specific experience with all of the above, we’d expect you to be excited to learn and grow, and tackle any challenges that may come your way.

What you will do:

  • Create and drive the security roadmap
  • Manage our compliance automation programs (SOC 2, ISO 27001, HIPAA, etc.). We’ve already achieved these using Drata, and while you have a team to support you, you will take the lead.
  • Ensure all engineers and employees of Merge treat security as a core part of our practices
  • Manage our Bug Bounty Program
  • Implement security controls across Merge, from infrastructure to CI
  • Implement and run manual and automated security practices to mitigate vulnerabilities
  • Assist with security reviews, threat modeling, disaster recovery practice, and code reviews

The ideal candidate will have:

  • 4-6+ years of security engineering experience
  • Ownership or leadership within areas of security at previous organizations, infosec being a plus
  • An overall excitement around building a more secure engineering function and organization
  • Ability to manage security programs
  • Experience with and a desire to code in at least one major programming language
  • A thorough understanding of networking and infrastructure, including load balancing, VPNs, Zero Trust, HTTPS, DNS, etc.
  • Experience with multi-tenant cloud environments


  • The cash compensation range for this role is $200,000 - $225,000
  • Actual compensation packages are based on a wide array of factors unique to each candidate, including but not limited to skill set, years & depth of experience, and certifications. In addition to cash compensation, all full time employees receive an equity compensation package


  • Unlimited PTO + 10 company holidays
  • Pre-Tax commuter benefits
  • 100% covered health, vision, and dental insurance 
  • 401K Plan
  • $200 one-time home office stipend
  • In office snacks and free dinner when working past 7pm

Merge is an equal opportunity employer, and we value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, disability status, or any other protected class.
