Website engineering team

"Our website is PortSwigger's most powerful weapon when it comes to engaging with the outside world."

Our aim is to keep PortSwigger on the front foot in all aspects of online engagement and help all areas of our business to benefit from the 24-hour shop window that the website provides.

Key functionality

The website is our main digital presence and allows visitors to learn more about who we are, our products, and purchase them. End users can also manage their licenses, contact our support team via the forum, or read the extensive documentation about Burp Suite.

Our products are however not everything at PortSwigger. If you are interested in web security, you will find invaluable posts from our talented research team, as well as an ever-growing free learning center, the Web Security Academy. We also cover cybersecurity news via our home-brewed channel, the Daily Swig.

Problem space

Perfectionism and performance at scale are key requirements of the features we deliver. We strive to design solutions that are faster, innovative, and more user friendly. As a result, our team is not afraid of going outside of their comfort zone to identify the right technology to fit the job and push that technology to its limits. Our developers are crafters and engineers of truly scalable products.

As a web security company, a secure website is a must-have. When developing new features, our developers' mindset is highly focused on how new features might potentially be exploited, and we work closely with our in-house security research team.

Technologies

Our website services are running on AWS infrastructure, mainly written in C#, with the addition of JavaScript to enhance the front-end experience.

Our tooling includes Jetbrains Rider, xUnit, git, NuGet, TeamCity, Docker, and various AWS services.

Meet the Swiggers

We are a diverse group of people with a wide range of interests and backgrounds. What Swiggers have in common is that they all love their work and are exceptionally good at what they do.
