  • Researching and implementing methods to detect cyber attack patterns, improving logging and monitoring procedures, contributing to incident playbooks, and leading incident response activities.
  • Collaborating with product teams, DevOps, and IT engineers to integrate security into product development and infrastructure design, defining security priorities, and promoting security awareness.
  • Sharing security knowledge and best practices with colleagues, raising awareness of security concepts, providing training, and supporting others with security-related challenges.

  • You are familiar with cloud technology and industry best practices for securing cloud environments.
  • You are proficient in core networking concepts and identifying/mitigating network vulnerabilities.

  • You are proficient in at least one scripting technology for process automation and tool enhancement .
  • You understand DevOps concepts and can integrate security processes into development pipelines.
  • You can effectively log, monitor, and respond to security incidents.
  • You're mission-driven: you care about positively impacting the lives of millions
  • You’re always collaborating: you place team success over personal success and you enjoy working in an open, collaborative environment.
  • You demonstrate responsible ownership: when you see something not working, you'll flag it and be part of the solution
  • You seek continuous improvement: you’re always developing new skills and insights, while exploring ways to do things better
  • You’re mindful of balance: you're conscious of your own health and that of others. You think carefully about how best to focus your efforts, knowing when to push yourself to reach a goal.
