We are the exclusive recruiters for our client, a well-funded and
fast-growing security startup based in San Francisco. Since many of the
developers live in the South Bay, they are in the process of seriously
considering opening up a satellite office in Mountain View. They are set up
for telecommuting and on average, the developers report to the office 2-3
times/week. We want to talk to all interested candidates who can commute to
either locations a few times a week. 

This company develops next-generation access control solutions, a red-hot
niche of the multi-billion dollar Identity and Access Management (I+AM)
market.  According to John Pescatore of Gartner, "Ideally, the Network
Access Control process should operate with the security configuration and
IAM policies that are already deployed for the rest of IT environment",  and
this is where the company Is focused..  Members of the engineering team will
be producing truly ground-breaking solutions that will dramatically change
the way enterprises look at access control, based on user identity and
policy rather than IP addresses.

The salaries can go up to around $120K. Competitive equity and benefits. 

We will consider exceptional international candidates with very relevant
