About Brave

Brave is on a mission to protect the human right to privacy online. We’ve built a free web browser that blocks creepy ads and trackers by default, a private search engine with a truly independent index, a browser-native crypto wallet, and a private ad network (opt-in!) that directly rewards you for your attention. And we’re just getting started. Already 50 million people have switched to Brave for a faster, more private web. Millions more switch every month.


Brave is hiring a Web Application Security Engineer to help secure Brave’s business-critical web applications, including but not limited to Brave Search ( Your work will directly impact the future of a privacy-first search engine used by millions of people.
