Together, we can change the future of security in the cloud.

Help Us Transform Cloud Security

As cloud computing goes mainstream, security has become the rate-limiting factor for how fast organizations can innovate. Go any faster and they put everything at risk. Cloud misconfiguration is the #1 cause of cloud-based data breaches. 

The only way to change this is to transform how organizations do cloud security. And that’s what Fugue is all about. Fugue helps teams move faster in the cloud—without breaking the rules that keep cloud environments secure. 

Fugue secures the entire cloud development lifecycle—from infrastructure as code through the runtime—with the same platform and rules across AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. This removes significant time, cost, and risk from cloud operations, giving organizations complete visibility and consistent governance over their cloud environment—and the confidence to move faster in the cloud.

The Fugue team is comprised of highly focused and talented individuals working in a fast-paced and highly collaborative environment. We’re working with the latest cloud technologies across AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. The Fugue SaaS platform is highly secure and built using serverless architectures. We love open-source and maintain Regula, a policy engine for infrastructure as code checks. 

Fugue is primarily a distributed team with offices in Washington, DC, and Frederick, MD. We offer competitive compensation and benefits, including an open PTO policy.

Fugue helps engineers build and operate secure cloud infrastructure. We continuously monitor infrastructure-as-code and cloud resources for our customers, report on vulnerabilities that we find, and help remediate the underlying issues. Our platform and open source tools are used in CI/CD pipelines to spot misconfigurations early and fix them before they are deployed to production environments.

We are headquartered in Frederick, MD and have always been remote-friendly. This year we took that one step further and now are remote-first, but we also aim to provide office space to those who want it.

Our Product Team

Engineering at Fugue is part of our Product team. We’re a friendly, small, and nimble group of experienced engineers who are having a great time building and scaling the Fugue SaaS. We care about cloud security and helping our customers find and fix security vulnerabilities. We find a lot of satisfaction in working with incredibly considerate, collaborative, and curious teammates.

The Role

As a Backend Software Engineer on the Fugue Product team, you will lend a hand in designing, implementing, and automating the deployment of new features in our SaaS application. You will work with the Product team to create robust and highly scalable systems that interact with the AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud APIs. You will work with Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) technologies such as Terraform and CloudFormation and will contribute to various open source projects written in Go like our Regula project for IaC security. We use serverless technologies including Lambda and Fargate in AWS. This role involves working in Go primarily, but also Python and Javascript from time to time.

In short, this position may be a great fit if you’re a Go developer looking to learn more about AWS, Azure, and Google clouds while working as part of a small but mighty team.


  • Familiarity with Go
  • Knowledge of web technologies and Linux proficiency
  • Track record of problem solving and helping ship software products
  • Interest in cloud engineering and cloud security
  • Proficiency with automated testing and CI/CD

Experience with one of AWS, Azure, or Google clouds would be ideal, but is not a hard requirement. If you have experience with CloudFormation, Terraform, or other infrastructure-as-code technologies, then that’s a bonus. We also work with these tools and technologies, so any background with these is a plus: Open Policy Agent, Swagger APIs, MySQL, Redshift, Docker, and serverless computing in AWS.
