About Vectrix

Vectrix.io, a cloud security company part of Y Combinator's Summer 2020 batch, is looking for its first hire.

The Vectrix platform allows companies to connect their third-party cloud services (e.g., AWS, GitHub, G Suite) to get security monitoring coverage over each of them, instantly. We do this by offering a growing library of individual, easy-to-use security scanners that each monitor a specific service for a specific issue. Active security engineers develop and monetize their scanners, we vet and host them, and companies pick, choose, and integrate the security coverage that matters to them.
