Immunefi exists to protect the future of money. Immunefi is DeFi's last line of defense and leading bug bounty platform, preventing catastrophic hacks before user funds are stolen. Our team is highly specialized, so we’re looking for talented people who are willing to jump right in and use their expertise to help us protect DeFi.

Why we need an Acquisition Programs Manager

The purpose behind the role of Acquisition Programs Manager is to acquire new security researchers (SRs) to consistently find valid vulnerabilities in the projects hosted on Immunefi’s web3 bug bounty platform.

On a high level, the objectives of this role are: 

  • Independently brainstorm new initiatives and activation plans to acquire SRs.
  • Competently execute those initiatives, and also initiatives handed down from team manager.
  • Develop an excellent Immunefi onboarding experience for SRs.
  • Create compelling content about Immunefi to be used as part of acquisition/promotional efforts.
  • Continually network and develop relationships with SRs.

This role is flexible and diverse in its day-to-day activities and can include: developing partnerships with universities or organizations/clubs where SRs cluster, creating and executing the Security Researcher Ambassador Program to encourage our SRs to acquire new hackers, engaging on Twitter/podcasts/other platforms with useful content to promote Immunefi to the web2 and web3 hacker world, attend conferences to acquire SRs, work with outside contractors to develop code challenges/educational platform to create an easy onboarding experience, etc.    

To succeed in this role:

Most importantly, you must have user acquisition skills that take into account a long user acquisition/conversion cycle. You must have your finger on the pulse of the web2 and web3 security communities. You must know where SRs cluster, what types of SRs we are looking for, what SRs want and how we can provide it for them, and how to bring them on our platform, so they can submit high-quality bug reports to projects. This requires creativity, flexibility, as well as ability to execute quickly, measure results, and pivot if necessary. 

You must be able to engage SRs and communicate with fluency and clarity, while keeping in mind the underlying ethos and broad objectives of Immunefi that fit into the ecosystem of web3—which includes security, safety, and peace of mind for users and projects alike.
