My most recent work experience had me work as an intern at Riot Games. The position title was "AppSec intern" for which I would produce a product that would help the internal bug fixing process that had reports come solely from the bug bounty program riot lauched in November of 2014 on the HackerOne Bug Bounty platform.
The task had me personally use the HackerOne platform to communicate with researchers and verify bug reports that were submitted through the HackerOne website. The product produced was a simple web application complete with a scraper, database and frontend presentation that summarised and offered a number of different views to aid analytics of the submitted HackerOne reports coupled with the corresponding internal Jira tickets and the information contained in those tickets. A key goal was to streamline the internal submit / verify / fix / pay-out process with a collective view that would enable engineers to quickly assess where their attention was required and pick-up the work from. This goal was met after many concept drawings, versions and much discussion and input from the majority of the security engineers.
