Hi there!
We are Semrush, a global IT company developing our own product—a platform for digital marketers. New stars are born here, so don’t miss your chance.
This is our Python Developer role for those who strive to implement functional processes and drive them to full completion.

  • Automate process of Patch Management; network perimeter scanning.

  • Drive Policy as Code approach to validate our infrastructure from a security point of view.

  • Automate reactions on alerts where possible.

  • Develop metrics collection and analytics (via API).

Who we are looking for

  • Automation/programming skills (Python, Go, Bash).

  • Сonfident knowledge of Linux and networks.

  • Understanding of the basics of cyber security.

They say there are no perfect candidates, but that might well be you, if

  • You have knowledge of GCP.

  • Ability to work with docker/k8s.

  • Understanding of technical security controls (WAF/FW/IDS/SIEM, etc.).

  • The ability to build communication with colleagues from development teams.

  • Pentesting skills.

  • You share our common values: Trust, as we prefer to speak up and be our true selves; Sense of Ownership, as it’s not worth wasting time on something you don’t believe in; and enthusiasm for Constant Change, as we are always looking to make things better.

A bit about the team

You can get to know the team better at one of the interviews, but some brief information about future colleagues will be useful now.

The group currently consists of six experienced engineers, and we are engaged in the provisioning and development of infrastructure security in the company. Our team has big plans and ambitions. We try to make all decisions jointly. We are missing a colleague who likes to solve complex tasks, see the big picture, and link different systems together to achieve the best result, who is ready to explore and create new things, and who is not afraid to look at the backlog sometimes.

We have several projects underway:

  • Work with the team to develop security practices in GCP and k8s (focus on Policy as Code).

  • Develop and help development teams implement secure controls and practices (like Checkov/GCP secret manager/admission control and others).

  • Automate and link various security tools into chains.

  • Participate/automate metrics collection and analytics.

We also have many plans that have yet to be discussed and implemented. There is an opportunity to offer your vision of how we can improve infrastructure security and what opportunities there are for automation.

We will try to create all the right conditions for you to work and rest comfortably.

  • It’s up to you to decide what work format works best for you. You can #wfo, #wfh, or mix both.

  • Flexible working day start.

  • Health insurance coverage.

  • Working from a modern coworking space (or working from home).

  • Corporate events.

  • Unlimited PTO.

  • Hobby benefit.

  • Training, courses, conferences.

  • English and Spanish courses.

  • Gifts for employees.

Finally, a little more about our company

We’ve been developing our product for 15 years and have been awarded G2's Top 100 Software Products, Global and US Search Awards 2021, Great Place to Work Certification, Deloitte Technology Fast 500 and many more. In March 2021 Semrush went public and started trading on the NYSE with the SEMR ticker.

10,000,000+ users in America, Europe, Asia, and Australia have already tried Semrush, and over 1,000 people around the world are working on its development. The Semrush team is constantly growing.

Semrush is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. We do not discriminate based upon race, religion, creed, color, national origin, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, ancestry, physical or mental disability, or medical condition including medical characteristics, genetic identity, marital status, military service, or any other classification protected by applicable local, state or federal laws. All employment decisions are based on business needs, job requirements, merit, and individual qualifications.




At Semrush, we take a serious and comprehensive approach to hiring new people. We welcome those who are professionals in their field and passionate about their work to join our team.

A “five-minute interview” or “get a job in three clicks” approach is not the way we work.

During the interview, we ask candidates to talk about themselves and their background in detail. We try to discover the most important aspects about the way someone works and their personality before a job offer is made.

Up to 3 days

Once the resume is received it will be reviewed by a member of the Talent Acquisition team. We try to provide feedback within three working days.

Flexible approach for an interview format

We’re flexible and open for both online interviews and personal meetings at the offices. Choose the option that’s most suitable for you!

In order for the online meetings to be productive, we suggest following these tips to make sure you are set up well:

  • Join the interview from a laptop or desktop computer (not a smartphone). You may need to print something or present your screen during the interview.
  • Please turn on your camera. Visual communication is especially important for us.
  • Choose a quiet place to talk. Attending an interview from the street is not a good idea.
  • Keep your phone at hand in case there are technical issues that mean we have to continue the interview by direct call.

Good luck!


The Semrush Security team takes responsibility for information security and encourages employees to pay close attention to potential security issues related to everyday activities and decisions.

Python Developer (Infrastructure Security Team)

Within the team, there are several scopes of work: web application security, certification and audit, infrastructure security, and general issues.

Even though Security team members focus on different tasks, they operate as one: every team member is always ready to provide support, no matter the query.

The entire team is located in our European offices, but also has ambassadors from among local colleagues in almost all Semrush offices worldwide. These colleagues help maintain awareness of information security within their branch.
